Whether it’s because of age, weight loss or gravity, the skin on our arms can lose its elasticity and begin to sag over time. For many people, drooping skin is an unattractive quality that detracts from their physical appearance, and although diet and exercise help, there is only so much it can do to prevent sagging skin. Fortunately, arm lift surgery is available as a treatment option for eliminating excess skin, and Dr. Husam Elias performs the procedure at the Southern California Center for Surgical Arts for patients who wish to renew their arm’s natural contour.
What Is an Arm Lift?
A brachioplasty, more commonly known as an “arm lift” is a surgical procedure that excises sagging tissue from the upper arm, which causes the skin to lift and tighten. The result is a toned arm that also looks more attractive. People receive arm lifts for various reasons, but it usually stems from a loss in skin elasticity in the arm. Significant weight loss, age and heredity all have to do with sagging skin.
