Someone’s appearance can affect the way they feel about themselves and the way they interact with other people. For this reason, body contouring can be highly beneficial to a great deal of people who are conscious about the way they look. It has become an immensely popular procedure due to the effects it has on an individual’s body.
Having a sagging body is often seen as unattractive and can cause someone to lose confidence in themselves and feel insecure. One of the first parts of the body that begins to sag as you develop excess skin and fat are the arms. With an arm lift surgery, however, you can achieve the fit and trim look you desire safely.
An arm lift surgery is done in individuals who are aging or those who have lost a large amount of weight. The procedure comes in various forms and the standard upper arm lift is the most widely performed technique among them.
What is an Arm Lift and How is it Done?
An arm lift is a surgical procedure that can help tighten the skin on your arms. The procedure can make them look more toned and aesthetically pleasing. Most individuals who opt for the surgery do it in combination with other procedures for a total body enhancement.
During an arm lift, the excess skin that droops over the arms is removed through an incision that is made on the arm. The amount of skin removed is based on the length of the incision and your individual needs and goals.
What Arm Lift Techniques are Available to You?
A full arm lift procedure consists of two parts – upper arm lift and mini arm lift. The two procedures differ in the region from which the excess skin is removed and the type of incision made.
1. Upper Arm Lift
As the name suggests, during the upper arm lift, your surgeon makes an incision on the upper part of the arm. The position and length of the cut however depends on the amount of skin that needs to be removed. Usually, the incision will be made from the armpit to the elbow.
2. Mini Arm Lift
The mini arm lift is done when minor revisions are required on the upper arm. The excess fat is removed from a small incision made on the upper part of the arm. The mini arm lift is usually not done unless it is necessary to do so. The surgery is required only when small adjustments are required either to the original shape or the arm shape after surgery.
Enhance Your Appearance with an Arm Lift
There are many procedures available today that can help achieve the look and feel that you desire. Of them, the arm lift is the most preferred type due to the lower risks and the amazing results. The procedure is usually done in two stages depending on your needs and goals.
Having arms that look well defined and expertly contoured looks good and improves self-confidence. With an arm lift, you will not have to worry about saggy skin that adversely alters your looks any longer.
