As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity, which contributes to the appearance of lines and wrinkles. When combined with drastic changes in body shape due to things like dramatic weight loss or pregnancy, our skin sometimes fails to adjust, which leads to sagging. Sagging can occur on all parts of the body, even the arms. If you are concerned about sagging skin on your arms, an arm lift is an ideal procedure for you. Sometimes sagging excess skin is simply a result of your skin’s natural lack of elasticity or a consequence of age. Regardless of the reason, dangling skin can be a nuisance as well as an eyesore. An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, involves surgery to remove the excess skin and fat. An incision is typically made along the backside of the arm to hide scarring — liposuction may also be used to reduce excess fat. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine to determine how an arm lift may benefit you. Contact us at our office in [fourthly_city] if you have any additional questions.
