Summer is here. Keeping cool and looking your best is a skillful art and if baring your arms makes you nervous, you likely battle your wardrobe everyday. If you are hesitant to slip on that tank or halter top, you might be a good candidate for arm rejuvenation. Arm lift surgery, also called brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to tone and trim the upper arms for a better overall contour and more youthful appearance. The goal is to eliminate the loose, excess skin and fatty tissue that create “bat wings” on the underside of the arms. Get a trimmer look just in time to wear short sleeves, tank tops, strapless dresses, bathing suits, and more. If any of the statements below sounds like you, it might be time to meet with a plastic surgeon for an arm lift consultation.
Arm Lift Reason: I Just Lost a Lot of Weight
If you’ve just lost a significant amount of weight because of weight loss surgery or other methods, you likely have some excess skin hanging around the upper arms. It is very common for both men and women to store fat cells in the upper arms as they gain weight, stretching the skin and breaking down its elastic properties. When those fat cells are gone, the skin is left behind, looking saggy and flabby. When you’ve worked so hard to reach the size and weight you want, it’s a shame to have the proof reminding you every time you wave hello to a friend!
Once you’ve achieve your desired weight, it’s time to consult with a plastic surgeon about your surgical options for body contouring. Banish those bat wings for good with an arm lift procedure and say goodbye to that excess inelastic skin for good.
Arm Lift Reason: You’ve Noticed Looser Skin With Age
As you age, the elastic properties of your skin begin to deteriorate. Sagging and excess flab are a natural consequence of the aging process, leaving their mark on areas like the arms, abdomen, neck, and thighs. To combat the bat wings that have formed because of elastin breakdown, start the process with an arm lift consultation. During the procedure, extra skin will be removed along with fatty tissue in order to smooth the upper arms and achieve a more youthful look.
Arm Lift Reason: Everyone in Your Family Has Bat Wings
Unfortunately, some people inherit their saggy upper arms from family. Regardless of your age or weight loss history, your loose, flabby bat wings might just be the work of your heredity. If you’ve noticed that everyone at your family reunion seems to share this unwanted characteristic, plan that consultation today. You won’t be able to use diet and exercise to banish the excess fat cells and stretched out skin, so surgery might be your only option for achieving smoother, sleeker arms.
