Skin aging not only affects the face, it can have a devastating effect on other parts of the body, as well. The upper arms are among the body parts that are the hardest hit by aging. Loose, saggy skin on the upper arms can keep you from wearing the clothes you’d like to during the warm summer months.
With the passage of time, the skin loses its elasticity and is unable to return to its original shape after stretching. Thus, when an old person loses weight quickly, the skin under the upper arms is unable to revert back to its original shape and begins to droop.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is the recommended treatment for droopiness of skin on the upper arms. It is a highly effective procedure that involves removal of excess skin from the upper arms, giving them a nice toned shape. In an arm lift, an incision is made in the armpit and then excess skin and fat is removed from the area under the upper arms.
After surgery, you will likely have some soreness in the upper arms. You will be advised to avoid any kind of strenuous activity with your arms for about six weeks, but you can resume your daily routine within a few weeks of your arm lift.
If you want to improve the look and shape of your upper arms, an arm lift surgery at our clinic could be exactly what you’re looking for.
