Who is a good candidate for an arm lift procedure?

Both men and women will find that excess, sagging skin on the upper arms is also problematic for them. This excess skin—and fat—can continue to droop, which can significantly affect the way they look when wearing more revealing clothing such as a bathing suit or sleeveless top. With the help of a plastic surgeon such as Dr. Matthew J. Trovato, patients in the Dallas, TX area can restore their confidence with the removal of skin and fat and tightening of the upper arm area using the arm lift procedure. 

What is an arm lift and how does it work? 

The arm lift is a targeted procedure for the upper arms that removes both fat and sagging skin. In doing so, patients will find that they can tighten and tone the upper arms and enjoy better body contours on the upper portion of the body. With the help of a plastic surgeon, patients will enjoy the many benefits of the arm lift. It can: 

  • Sculpt and smooth the arms for a more toned appearance
  • Help in removing excess skin left behind after substantial weight loss
  • Tighten aging, sagging skin in the arm area
  • Allow patients to feel confidence when wearing swimwear and tank tops
  • Improve overall self-confidence and body acceptance
  • Refine a patient’s weight loss efforts, allowing them to show off their changes with confidence
