One day you’re just minding your business -- going to work or to the store. Maybe you’ve been trying to get more exercise, or even eating healthier. And you enthusiastically wave at your neighbor, when… what was that? Your hands stop waving, but your upper arms seem to still be moving back and forth?
You may not even know exactly when your upper arms started to look (and behave) this way: saggy, with loose skin that seems to move separately from the rest of you.
All you know for sure is that you wish you could get your arms back to looking like, well… arms again. (Because as most of us already know, saggy arms are often called bat wings!)
Before you decide that the only thing you can do is give up on ever waving again, we may have another option.
Have you heard about brachioplasty? Also known as an arm lift, brachioplasty can lift and tighten up loose skin on the upper arms. The results can offer you firmer arms with a more youthful shape.
Maybe you think you’ve already tried plenty of things to try and improve the appearance of your arms. And, actually you can see some results from weight lifting, push-ups and diet. Unfortunately, the condition is caused by the loss of skin elasticity, so saggy arms can be difficult to avoid as we age, even with proper diet and exercise. And they can also be the result of extreme weight loss.
That’s why surgery may be the only solution that can offer noticeable results for saggy arms and loose skin.
Depending on your individual needs, here are the basics of what you can expect from arm lift surgery:
• An incision is made from the underarm area, extending along the inside or back of the upper arm
• The procedure is performed through a combination of liposuction and skin removal
• Smoother, tighter contours are apparent almost immediately
