With Arm Lift Surgery, You Can Go Sleeveless This Summer

Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on July 25, 2014

0As the warm weather begins to permeate throughout the country, women begin to worry about going sleeveless during the summer.  Many women have concerns about wearing bathing suits, sleeveless tops and dresses because of sagging skin and fat in the upper arm area.  Women who are forced to cover up their arms end up with self-esteem problems, which can affect all areas of their lives.

Arm Lift Surgery Can Allow You To Go Sleeveless

Miami residents who are tired of dealing with flabby arms finally have options.  Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery offers arm lift surgery that can help to tone your upper arms and underarm area that cannot be addressed with diet and exercise alone.  An arm lift is effective when you have already adjusted your diet and exercise plan but still have that pesky arm fat that will just not go away.

You may be a good candidate for this type of surgery if:

  • You are looking to improve the look of your arms by removing excess skin that sags when you extend your arms out away from your body.
  • You are physically fit and are close to your desired body weight.
  • You have no previous health problems that could delay your healing after surgery.
  • You do not smoke, or you are committed to quitting smoking several months prior to surgery.
  • Your expectations for the look of your arms after surgery are realistic.

How Long Will My Arm Lift Last?

Our patients frequently ask how long an arm lift will last.  The truth is that as long as you maintain your ideal weight, the results of an arm lift should be permanent. One thing to keep in mind however is that as you age, your skin may begin to sag, and loose skin may return.  By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise, you can minimize the effects of aging and weight gain after a successful arm lift procedure.

What to Expect With An Arm Lift

An arm lift procedure begins with an incision at the armpit, which may continue down to the elbow, depending on the amount of correction that is needed. By removing excess fat and tightening the tissue, toned arms can become a reality.

Patients who choose to have an arm lift must keep in mind that this procedure will produce a scar. Dr. Vazquez can discuss options to limit scarring in your arm lift surgery.
