An arm lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can help correct problems with the arms. If you have lost a lot of weight and were left with excess loose, hanging skin, this procedure may be right for you. Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift can help you achieve more toned arms.
Overall, there are eight benefits of arm lift surgery you can enjoy. If you’re considering getting this procedure done, you should know about these benefits.
Excess Fat and Skin are Removed
Arm lift surgery eliminates excess skin and stubborn fat. This results in arms that are slimmer, sleeker, and more toned in the area between the elbow and armpit. Excess fat is removed through liposuction and excess skin is removed through surgery.
Change in Tone and Shape
An arm lift can dramatically change the tone and shape of your arms. The ideal candidate for the procedure has problems with flabbiness in their arms regardless of dieting and exercise attempts. Excess skin and fat prevent naturally toning up the arms, which is why an arm lift is necessary. The surgery can make a huge difference due to the surgeon working to reshape the tissue and tightening the skin.
An arm lift procedure can help to restore the elasticity in the arms. Excessive weight gain followed by a significant weight loss and aging can lead to flabbiness, stubborn pockets of fat, and excess skin. After the surgery, elasticity is restored and you can notice the very visible results immediately.
After an arm lift, your arms will be better proportioned to the rest of your body. This is especially true if the only problem areas on your body are your arms. With the elimination of fat and excess skin, your entire body will look better balanced.
Scars are Hidden
Arm lift surgery ensures that your scars are hidden. The surgeon makes incisions in the armpit, inner arm, or back of the arm, which means they are small and concealed. You can also use creams to minimize the appearance of scars, but your scars should gradually disappear on their own over time.
Confidence is Restored
When you have an arm lift, your confidence and self-esteem will get a boost. Most likely, you felt insecure about your appearance due to the excess skin and fat in your arms. Arm lift surgery can restore the look of your arms by giving them a more contoured, attractive appearance.
More Clothing Options
After an arm lift procedure, you have more clothing options available to you. Your arms are slimmer, sleeker, and toned, which gives you the opportunity to show them off with shorter sleeves and sleeveless tops. You may even need a smaller size shirt as a result.
Better Workout Results
After getting an arm lift, you will see that you can get better results from working out with weights. Where before, you may have noticed no change, afterward, you can see muscle tone building in your arms. You’ll even be stronger without the excess fat and skin.
