Why choose arm lift surgery?
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
Dr. Kimberly Carpin is a plastic surgeon who is pleased to provide men and women in Webster, TX with surgeries that can improve their appearance and increase their self-confidence. For some patients, the upper arms can be a source of embarrassment. Fluctuations in weight, genetics, and aging can all contribute to excess skin and sagging in the upper arms. While exercise may tone and strengthen the arm, it doesn’t address skin that has lost its elasticity and the formation of stubborn fat deposits. In situations such as this, men and women may be considered good candidates for an arm lift.
Why choose an arm lift?
An arm lift is a surgery used to achieve a tighter, firmer upper arm, eliminating sagging skin that is commonly seen in this area of the body. It can:
- Reduce the amount of fat and excess skin on the upper and lower arms
- Provide smoother skin by reshaping the arms to improve contours
- Offer a more toned and proportioned upper or lower arm
- Tighten and smooth the supportive tissues that define the arms
- Reduce areas of fat deposit in the upper arm region
This procedure is best for adult patients who have significant upper arm skin laxity, want to reduce excess skin or fat deposits in the upper or lower arm, are of good health and wellness, and are within their ideal weight range with weight stability shown over several months.
What are the risks of an arm lift?
As with any surgical procedure, an arm lift can result in scarring. Dr. Kimberly Carpin will try to reduce the amount of scarring that is visible as much as possible with creative incisions. Also, because incisions are made, there is always a risk of infection. Post-operative instructions that are provided at our practice following surgical procedures offer care information that can reduce the risk of developing an infection and should be followed closely as directed.
