Show Low, Arizona adult men and women who are interested in learning more about procedures for the face and body are welcome to request a consultation appointment at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Our professionals are here to assist patients in the community with their cosmetic needs, including excess fat and skin on various areas of the body. Some patients who have experienced extreme weight loss may find that they have developed sagging skin and fat underneath the upper arm area. In situations such as this, our team may suggest the benefits of contouring the arm with a procedure known as an arm lift, or brachioplasty.
What is an arm lift?
An arm lift procedure is a surgical treatment for excess fat and skin on the upper portion of the arms. This area is often noticeable when patients wear sleeveless tops or bathing suits. The skin underneath is sometimes jokingly referred to as “wings” and can be a common issue due to weight loss or aging. Regardless, the team of Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery encourages patients to consider surgical removal of these “wings” with an arm lift. The arm lift treatment removes unwanted fat and excess skin to tighten the area and improve the shape and contour of the arm.
What causes extra skin and fat in this area?
Both men and women often deal with excess fat and skin in the upper arm area. The direct cause is not always known. Some patients have a hereditary predisposition to the accumulation of fat and skin on any area of the body, and the arms are often difficult to target with diet and exercise. This is what makes surgery an excellent option for patients who are trying to improve their body contours but find that weight loss or fluctuations have resulted in these unwanted changes.
