There are a lot of people out there who feel like they cannot wear certain types of clothing because of the way their arms look. There are usually two reasons why a person does not like the appearance of their arms. The first reason is because they do not like the fat on their arms. The second reason why a person may not like their arms is because of skin that sags. This may be the result of aging, or it could be that at one time a person had fat arms, they lost weight, and now they are dealing with a lot of excess skin. If you do not like the appearance of your arms, there is something you can do about it. You do not have to avoid certain types of clothing that you would actually really like to wear just because of having flabby arms with excess skin. One of the options that is available to you is an arm lift.
The first thing that you should know about an arm lift is that it is designed in order to get rid of excess skin on the arms. It is a surgical procedure that removes hanging skin. During this procedure, our skilled surgeon may remove some small pockets of fat as well. However, we will tell you that if you are heavy overall, we would encourage you to use diet and exercise as a way of improving your body first before having an arm lift performed. You need to be at or very close to your ideal weight in order to have an arm lift done.
In order to qualify for an arm lift, you must enjoy overall good health. If you have health issues or you take medications that may stop you from going through the healing process or that may cause complications during surgery, we will look at the other alternatives that are available.
It is also important to have realistic expectations regarding the procedure, the recovery, and the results. We can give you more information about this during an in-person consultation at Plastic Surgeon Dr. Joseph Banis. During this meeting in Louisville, please feel free to ask whatever questions you may have about this popular procedure. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
