Causes of Your Sagging Skin

You can get excess skin and fat on your upper arms due to a variety of reasons; aging, weight

in our skin which is mostly responsible for our skin integrity and elasticity, resulting in loose skin.

Why is arm lift surgery done?

  • An arm lift is not a weight loss procedure; it aims to remove excess skin and fat from your upper arm that jiggles when you wave.
  • As you get older, the skin on your upper arms becomes loose and saggy.
  • You can get droopy upper arms after losing a significant amount of weight.

Why might you need arm lift surgery? 

You might need to remove extra skin from your upper arms because of;

  • General discomfort
  • Rash and inflammation. This can lead to infection.
  • Hygiene problems
  • Low self-esteem

While exercise and diet can help you improve muscle tone or lose weight, they cannot get rid of excess skin, and arm lift surgery is required.

Are you a good candidate for arm lift surgery? 

You are considered to be a good candidate if you have;

  • Stable and relatively healthy weight
  • Loose upper arm skin
  • Good overall health
  • Realistic expectations from the procedure

How is arm lift different from liposuction? 

Liposuction only removes extra fat, whereas arm lift aims to remove loose and saggy skin; a combination of both is often used for good results.

How to know if you need an arm lift or liposuction alone is sufficient? 

It depends upon the amount of excess skin, fat and skin tone in the area. People who have lost a significant amount of weight typically have stretch marks, poor skin quality and loose and hanging skin, which respond poorly to liposuction alone. People who have good skin tone, no stretch marks and just excess fat in the upper arm are better candidates for liposuction alone.

Can liposuction also be performed with arm lift surgery? 

Yes. If you have excess fat in your upper arm, then liposuction can be combined with your arm lift procedure to generate the best results.

Can other cosmetic procedures be combined with arm lift surgery? 

Yes. Especially people who have lost a considerable amount of weight are typically looking for more than one body contouring procedure, and it is not uncommon to combine some of them to decrease cost and time. An arm lift can be combined with a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, panniculectomy (removing extra skin hanging below the belly button), or thigh lift.

What are the lifestyle changes you need before your arm lift? 

  • If you smoke, you will have to stop smoking 3-4 weeks before your procedure.
  • Try getting into a regular routine with exercise and a nutritious diet plan for weight maintenance before and after your procedure.
  • You will need to temporarily discontinue some medicines and supplements that increase bleeding; therefore, it is important to discuss all the medicines and supplements that you are taking with your cosmetic surgeon.

How to get ready for an arm lift? 

  • Don’t eat or drink anything 12 hours before your surgery.
  • Wear loose clothing, don’t wear any jewellery.
  • You will need to arrange someone who can drive you home and stay with you as you begin your recovery.

Why is it important to stop eating and drinking before the arm lift surgery?

As with any surgical procedure, fasting before the arm lift procedure prevents some complications, including nausea, vomiting, aspiration, infection, and aspiration pneumonia.

What to expect in the recovery period after an arm lift?

  • You will experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort for a week or two.
  • It’s best to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and speed up recovery.
  • You will have to avoid strenuous activities, especially those that can stretch your incisions for 4-6 weeks.
  • You can return to work after 2-3 days if your work does not include exhausting physical activities.
  • Avoid lifting your arms above your shoulder level for 3-4 weeks.

Are there visible scars after arm lift surgery?

No. Arm lift surgery is designed to hide scars as much as possible. Scars are located on the inside of your upper arm and are not visible when the arms are down. They can only be seen if your arms are elevated, and you are wearing short sleeve shirt. Scars are not prominent and fade over time.

Do arm lift surgery provides permanent results? 

The arm lift surgery provides long-lasting results, provided that you maintain a stable weight and active lifestyle.
