Having flabby or sagging arms is one of the most common physical concerns for women.
This loose skin may be due to a variety or combination of factors, including: genetics, aging, weight fluctuations, and even the lack of exercise. If the sagging is not that severe yet, the problem in the upper arms may be fixed by exercising to strengthen the surrounding muscle tone. Exercise, however, cannot solve the extra skin that has become inelastic nor the presence of localized fat deposits. The solution for sagging and fatty arms is a surgical procedure called brachioplasty or arm lift.
An arm lift surgery essentially aims to reshape under region of the upper arms. If done properly, it will also make the skin in the arms tighter and smoother. Arm lift surgery is ideal for patients with generally good health and moderate to severe skin laxity in the upper arms. Scarring is always a concern with visible areas like the arms. Dr. Tehrani takes great care to place the incisions and sutures in the inner portions of the upper arm to minimize the visibility as much as possible.
