An arm lift is a surgical procedure that reduces excess sagging skin which droops downward, and tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm and reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.
Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.
Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat.
This procedure is a fat-reduction surgery that can be done one of several ways: liposuction, Kybella®or SculpSure. The most common procedure for this type of treatment is liposuction, because it’s the oldest and best known option. During liposuction, which is a one-time treatment, incisions are made in the area of concern and fat cells are vacuumed out with a liposuction wand.
Thigh Lift & Lower Leg
A thigh lift is an excellent way to achieve firmer and more attractive upper legs. This procedure is especially helpful for those who struggle with loose, excess skin as a result of weight loss. A thigh lift involves the removal excess skin, fat and tissue to tone and refine the upper legs.
The lower legs can also have liposuction performed, if needed, to have the excess fat removed. This procedure is usually completed in conjunction with a thigh lift.
