The results of the upper arm lift are long-lasting and semi-permanent. An arm lift improves the current condition of the patient’s arms but is unable to prevent future skin sagging from occurring due to additional weight gain or aging. Weight gain and aging following the procedure will cause the patient’s arm to naturally lose shape. However, there are several ways to maintain results over the long term.
As with any other procedure to get rid of body fat, patients have an important role to play in maintenance to ensure the longest-lasting results. There are lifestyle changes patients can make to ensure the result of lifting their upper arm lasts as long as possible.
Patients who elect to undergo an arm lift will see the results they want immediately. But for patients who want to reap the benefits of the procedure over the long term lifestyle changes like regular exercise routines and dieting are imperative.
There are many reasons patients elect to undergo an arm lift. Sagging skin after significant weight loss, fat under the arms despite having a healthy weight, flabby arms that undermine self-confidence and body image and cause individuals to avoid certain clothes and others. Arm lifts are a great way to improve the appearance of the upper arm and improve self-esteem and appearance.
The best candidates for an arm lift are adults of any age who are not significantly overweight and whose weight is relatively stable, adults with significant skin laxity in the upper arm, individuals who are generally healthy without medical conditions that may increase the risk associated with the surgery or impair healing, nonsmokers, and individuals with realistic expectations and a positive attitude about making the lifestyle changes necessary to sustain the results of the surgery.
Also known as Brachioplasty, an arm lift is a cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of the upper arm. The upper arm lift removes excess skin and fat between the armpits and elbows. The rest of the skin is repositioned on top of the rearranged contours for a tighter look.
This procedure has three purposes. It tightens loose skin, removes excess fat from the upper arm, and reshapes the arm. Other skin tightening techniques, as well as liposuction, are sometimes used with an arm lift to achieve the best results.
Individuals gradually experience sagging and loosening skin as they age. Significant weight fluctuation can result in undesirable loose skin as well. An arm lift is an excellent choice for patients hoping to achieve a healthier and more youthful appearance.
Exercise and strength training can improve the muscle tone in the arm; it can’t restore elasticity in the skin on its own. Reducing body fat and exercising will reduce flab but loose skin that has lost its elasticity due to aging or significant weight loss cannot be restored naturally. For patients who want to eliminate loose underarm skin, an arm lift is the only option.
