Many adults are embarrassed when it comes to revealing their arms. This is due to a problem with sagging skin, which can be the result of age, weight loss, and even genetics. For some, showing their arms while on vacation or during the summer is not an option because they don’t want others seeing the sagging areas of the skin. However, this is a problem that can be easily eliminated with an arm lift, also known as brachioplasty.
Reasons why one might want to undertake the procedure:
- Excess skin after weight changes or ageing
- Tissue laxity following massive weight loss
- Fat depositing combined with skin laxity
- Poor quality of the skin, strechmarks
- Wish to have more toned, contured and slender arms
