When to consider an arm lift
- Posted on: May 15 2021
Regardless of how many push-ups you do or how well you manage your weight, you may still develop sagging and excess skin in the upper arms. This can make patients feel extremely self-conscious when they are wearing exposing sleeveless tops or their summer bathing suit. Instead of dealing with this problem, we encourage patients to book a consultation visit with Dr. Kimberly Carpin to discuss the benefits of an upper arm lift surgery.
What is an arm lift?
The arm lift procedure is a cosmetic treatment during which the doctor will sculpt the arms by removing excess fat that contributes to sagging as well as excess skin. This provides patients with more slender, toned arms and tightens the area to combat aging skin. The arm lift treatment will allow patients to improve their self-esteem, image, and overall confidence, especially when they are trying to refine their weight loss efforts and enjoy a tighter and toned appearance.
Who is a good candidate for the arm lift surgery?
The best candidate for the arm lift procedure is any adult patient who:
- Does not have weight fluctuations and are within their ideal weight range
- Are in good overall health and wellness, living an active lifestyle and following a proper diet
- Is having the procedure done for themselves and not anyone else
- Wants to eliminate excess fat and skin that negatively impacts their body contours
- Have realistic expectations of what can be achieved with plastic surgery
What to expect from the arm lift procedure
The procedure is performed by our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Kimberly Carpin, and allows patients to make changes to their arms that are not responding well to lifestyle changes such as increased exercise or a proper diet. Patients will work with our doctor to determine how much time is needed for recovery and healing, and any arrangements that need to be made post-operatively to reduce their risk of infection.
