As the summer months approach, most people are thinking about wearing bathing suits, tank tops and shorts. For them, being outside and exposing their skin is exciting and fun. For others, the summer months mean they have to cover up and feel hot in heavy clothing.
One of the things that lead many to covering up during the summer months is ‘bat wings.’ Bat wings are excessive skin that hangs under the arms. This problem leads many to avoid tank tops and bathing suits.
An upper arm lift can reshape the upper arm. It helps to remove excess fat and tighten loose skin. Individuals usually consider an upper arm lift after they lost a lot of weight and are now dealing with too much upper arm skin and fat.
People are good candidates for an upper arm lift when they are at a normal weight, but the shape of their arm is unattractive because of loose skin and fat.
Upper arm lift surgery is also referred to as a brachioplasty.
Benefits of an Upper Arm Lift
Individuals who have undergone an upper arm lift report many benefits and have been able to say goodbye to excess arm fat. They are able to wear short sleeves and sleeveless clothing without feeling embarrassed or self-conscious.
When they wear form fitting clothes, they look much better than before the procedure. All of these things lead to them having much more self-confidence and a much better self-image.
How an Upper Arm Lift Procedure is Performed
The very first thing our surgeon will usually do is create marks in the areas around the arms. Liposuction may be used during the procedure to remove fat. Excess skin will then be removed.
Next, the skin will be smoothed over to reshape the arm. The arm will be wrapped in dressing and a compression garment will most likely need to be worn.
