Saggy or flabby arms can really cripple your self confidence. You may have stubborn, excess arm flab, or loose skin after weight loss. Being self conscious about your arms can take away from your quality of life, affecting the kind of clothes you wear, the activities you participate in, or your willingness to pose for photos. Arm flab and excess skin can be impossible to get rid of through just exercise and diet.
The good news is, there are a couple effective cosmetic options to eliminate excess fat or skin in the upper arms, and make you feel great about yourself!
The option you choose depends on your specific problem. The two reasons most people are unhappy with their upper arms are either:
Loose, sagging skin
These are two very different issues, and require two different procedures to correct them!
Skin around the upper arms can sag due to weight or muscle loss, or aging. Sagging skin around the arms can be easily corrected with a brachioplasty, or arm lift. During an arm lift, excess skin is removed from the upper arm, and the arm is contoured for a smooth, slim appearance. Arm lifts do require an incision, which is usually small and only visible when you lift your arm.
If your problem is unwanted fat around the arms, the safe cosmetic option would be liposuction. Liposuction is an effective procedure for the removal of any unwanted fat, specifically fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, as upper arm fat often is. During Liposuction, excess fat is suctioned from the problem area.
Sometimes the correct approach is a combination of the two procedures, as fat loss due to liposuction can result in sagging skin.
With many people now undergoing dramatic weight loss, arm lifts are quickly becoming a popular procedure. Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their upper arms and find that it negatively affects the choices they make in clothing, and in activities. By choosing an arm lift, liposuction, or a combination of the two, you are giving yourself fresh self-confidence, and new opportunities!
