About Arm Lift

Loose upper arm skin is most often related to extreme weight loss, often with individuals who have already undergone gastric bypass. If you were ever overweight, you more than likely developed heavy upper arms. The skin stretches over time to accommodate the increased volume of the upper arms. After weight loss, the skin often fails to tighten enough, and so it sags. The only way to improve this problem is through an arm lift, also called brachioplasty or arm lipectomy. Liposuction is sometimes warranted in these situations, but if your problem is due to loose skin, it is not the correct solution. The only time lipo is a better choice is when there is a lot of fat and the skin is tight. When the skin is loose, an arm lift is usually the best choice. Incisions and scars in Arm Lift are the greatest drawback of this operation. They extend from the armpit to the elbow, along the inside of the arm. This operation exchanges one cosmetic problem (loose skin) for another (scars). In general, those with very loose saggy skin are most likely to find this exchange worthwhile. Those with a small amount of looseness will probably not want the scars. In addition to surgical bracheoplasty, there is also a nonsurgical arm lift procedure available using either {!Body Thermage} or {!Titan Skin tightening lasers| Titan}.
