The arm lift procedure can sculpt and tone a patient’s upper arms. Why do the upper arms lose shape and begin to sag?
There are many factors that change the appearance of the upper arms. Typically, while one’s genes play a part in this, dramatic weight loss and the aging process both make major differences when it comes to drooping skin.
With aging comes a decrease in skin elasticity, the skin’s ability to shrink to fit the contours of the underlying tissues. Dramatic weight loss without good skin elasticity leads to excess sagging skin on the body, skin that will not shrink down. With an arm lift, this excess skin is trimmed away, recontouring the upper arms.arm lift, arm surgery, brachioplasty procedure, arm contouring
