Loose Upper-Arm Skin Can Be Trimmed Away

Published on November 30, 2017 by

Many women find themselves struggling to get rid of sagging skin and excess fat from their arms. Committing to a strict diet or regular exercise routine may provide some beneficial changes, but these don’t always result in the transformation you desire, and you may be left feeling disappointed about your results.

While achieving the toned arms you desire may see like an impossible feat to accomplish, that’s not completely true. Something can be done about this conundrum and prove to be the solution you’ve been looking for. With a plastic surgery procedure known as a brachioplasty (or arm lift) at the Philadelphia area’s Chapin Aesthetics, you can get rid of that excess fat and skin and gain the toned arms you have always wanted.

What is Brachioplasty?

Brachioplasty is a body contouring procedure that targets excess fat deposits and loose skin on the arms. This surgical procedure will require your your plastic surgeon to make incisions that will allow him to remove the necessary tissue.

After removing the excess fat and skin from the treatment area, your doctor will then tighten the remaining tissue in order for it to conform and adjust to the new contours and shape of your arm. The surgery will give you toned and more youthful looking arms that you will feel proud to show off.

Best Candidates for the Procedure

Brachioplasty is a good idea for people who have lost a significant amount of weight, but need a little help adding definition to their arms. If you have spent a countless amount of hours working out in the gym but fail to see significant results, then a brachioplasty can provide you with an effective solution that will quickly get you beautiful arms.

There are different brachioplasty techniques available, and the one chosen will depend on your individual needs. The two most common types are the standard arm lift and the mini-arm lift. To obtain the best results, you have to have a sit down with your doctor to discuss the options that are best for you.

What You Can Expect from the Procedure

Your arms are almost always on display and having them look their best can make you feel more secure and confident in your own body. No matter which surgical technique you pursue, the procedure is guaranteed to have a stunning impact on your overall appearance. The subtle changes provided by the surgery can make you look slim, fit, and even more beautiful.

Are You A Good Candidate For The Brachioplasty?

There are a few factors that can determine whether you’re a good candidate for the surgery or not. The best candidates for the procedure can maintain a healthy, stable weight, are in good general health, and can follow any instructions given to them by their doctor. These instructions may require you to stop using certain medications and to stop smoking.

You will be advised to postpone the surgery if you are pregnant or planning on having children in the near future, if you have a hard time maintaining a stable weight, or if you have underlying health conditions that increases any chance of complications occurring. These factors can alter your end result and even increase the risks.
