Ask any Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon and they will tell you they have heard patients complain about the redundant, excess skin and fat of their upper arms, a number of times. There are many reasons why this problem is developed: weight loss, post-Gastric Bypass Surgery, the aging process and various medical conditions all can be the cause. The most common complaint is that the skin and soft tissues hang from the arms, creating an unattractive appearance, even when the arms are fully covered. Patients sometimes feel embarrassed and uncomfortable wearing short sleeve shirts. The good news is that there is hope! Liposuction or a Brachioplasty (also known as an arm lift) with Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Warren Lent, could be the answer.
Skin, soft tissues and muscle begin to lose their tone and supporting ligaments begin to stretch as people age. Over time, the elasticity of their skin begins to loosen, a process that is accelerated by sun exposure and smoking. Gravity also causes the tissues to sag. Many people have asked if this can be reversed by exercise. Unfortunately, the answer is ‘No’. Exercise only tones the muscles; it does nothing to improve skin tone.
People who are candidates for an arm lift cosmetic enhancement include those who have:
- Loose skin of the upper arms
- Had significant weight loss
- Excessively full upper arms
- Embarrassment from redundant upper arm soft tissues
