Arm lift surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery treatment options available and this can help to contour and shape the arms by removing excess skin. But what does an arm lift involve? And what are the benefits of arm lift surgery?
What is an arm lift?
Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that is used to tighten the skin and tissue of the upper arms. For those who have excess skin here due to ageing, genetics or weight loss, an arm lift can be a great way to reshape the arms and improve the appearance of the upper arms.
What does arm lift surgery involve?
Arm lift surgery can be performed using a variety of techniques, depending on the specific needs and goals of the patient. The most common technique involves making an incision along the inner arm, from the armpit to the elbow, and removing excess skin and fat.
The remaining skin is then pulled taut and sutured back together, creating a smoother and more toned appearance. Another technique involves making an incision along the back of the arm, which is typically used for individuals with more severe sagging or excess skin.
In addition to these traditional techniques, there are also newer, less invasive methods for performing arm lift surgery. These include laser-assisted liposuction, which uses laser energy to melt and remove fat, and radio frequency-assisted liposuction, which uses radio waves to liquefy fat cells before they are suctioned out. These methods are typically less painful and require a shorter recovery time than traditional arm lift surgery.
What are the benefits of arm lift surgery?
There are a number of benefits to opting for arm lift surgery. These benefits include:
- Improving appearance: Arm lift surgery can help to improve the appearance of the arms, making them look more toned and youthful.
This is because arm lift surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper arms, which can greatly improve the appearance of sagging or flabby arms. This is especially important for individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight, as the skin may not have enough elasticity to conform to the new shape of the body.
- Increasing confidence: Many people feel self-conscious about their arms, especially when wearing short-sleeved or sleeveless clothing. Arm lift surgery can help increase confidence and self-esteem by providing a more toned and sculpted appearance.
- Better fitting clothes: After arm lift surgery, clothes may fit better and look more flattering, as the excess skin and fat that can cause bulges and folds are removed.
- Improving mobility: Excess skin and fat on the upper arms can sometimes cause discomfort or hinder mobility. Arm lift surgery can remove this excess tissue, allowing for greater freedom of movement.
- Long-lasting results: Arm lift surgery provides long-lasting results, as the excess skin and fat that are removed will not return. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to ensure the results last.
