Reasons You Need an Arm Lift

Posted September 23, 2016 in Arm Lift

When most people find flaws with their appearance, it often centers around their abdomen, hips, or thighs. Many people don’t realize the significant impact minor body areas can have on how happy you are with your appearance. The arms can play a key role in creating a toned and fit appearance or a flabby, out-of-shape physique. Depending on the reason you are dissatisfied with your arm appearance, you might want to consider an arm lift.

Reasons for Excess Arm Tissue

Weight Loss

Excess skin on the arms post-weight loss is a big issue for many men and women. While muscle-toning exercises may provide some improvement in the elasticity of your skin, people who have undergone dramatic weight loss will find that loose, hanging skin obscures the contours of their arms. This is a frustrating result of weight loss that can lead to painful underarm chafing and irritation.


The natural aging process causes the skin to become lax over time. Skin laxity along the arms can create the appearance of “bat wings.” Undefined arms can make you uncomfortable in certain types of tops and dresses. You may find yourself covering your body more to hide this unattractive sign of aging.

Benefits of an Arm Lift

More Defined Arms (Skin Removal)

An arm lift is designed to improve the shape and contour of your arms. By removing excess skin, an arm lift is able to reveal the attractive definition of the arms. Patients who have built muscle through working out will find that their arms look leaner and more toned following their procedure.

Slimmer Arms (Fat Removal)

Liposuction can be combined with an arm lift procedure to treat unwanted deposits of fat. Men and women commonly accumulate fat around the armpits and elbows. These fat deposits can cause a chunkier arm appearance. Liposuction slims the arms and permanently eliminates your unwanted fat.
