Schedule an arm lift to tighten sagging skin
- Posted on: Feb 14 2021
Do you find yourself experiencing sagging skin on the upper arms that flap around when waving hello or goodbye? Do you avoid wearing tank tops and sleeveless shirts because they expose your upper arms? Are you self-conscious about the excess skin or loose muscle that hangs from the upper arms? If this sounds like you and you live in the area of Webster, TX, you may be a proper candidate for a procedure such as an arm lift, or “brachioplasty.”
What is brachioplasty?
Brachioplasty is the medical term for an arm lift, during which a plastic surgeon will remove excess skin to tighten the upper arms and give it a slimmer appearance. It helps in reshaping the underside of the arm with strategically placed incisions to eliminate noticeable scarring.
Who is a candidate for an arm lift?
Any adult man or woman who experiences sagging skin underneath the arms might want to consider this procedure. It is also beneficial if patients are within their ideal weight range. In fact, many patients who consider the arm lift do so because they have successfully lost a significant amount of weight and are dealing with excess skin laxity that commonly occurs afterwards. During a consultation visit, Dr. Kimberly Carpin will determine a patient’s candidacy for this or other body contouring procedures.
What other procedures can be done at the same time?
Some patients choose to have the arm lift performed in conjunction with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction. Patients who are unable to take extended time off of work and other activities for separate procedures can often combine them. During the consultation appointment, patients are encouraged to bring up this option with their doctor if they are considering more than one procedure at a time.
