An Arm Lift After Weight Loss Can Be Life-Changing
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat and skin from the upper arms for a more toned, slimmer appearance. Many patients tell us that an arm lift after weight loss can be life-changing, improving self-esteem and opening up new wardrobe options.
While arm liposuction may be an option for patients who have a moderate amount of excess fat and good skin tone, oftentimes after weight loss, brachioplasty surgery is a better option.
Over time and particularly after weight loss, the soft tissue in the upper arm typically becomes lax and may begin to sag resulting in arms that appear loose.
Many people feel self-conscious by the appearance of sagging upper arms, and seek treatment to restore a slimmer, more youthful appearance.
The arm lift procedure is ideal for patients who have a significant amount of excess, hanging skin or fat in the upper arm area, maintain a stable weight and have realistic expectations for surgery. It is also important that patients are healthy overall, with no major medical conditions that may be affected by surgery.
The results of a brachioplasty after weight loss are visible right away although it does take a few weeks for swelling and bruising to subside. Most patients are highly satisfied with the results of their procedure and are more than willing to sacrifice a scar for thin, youthful-looking arms.
