An Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) addresses excess skin and fat in the arms that may result from weight loss or heredity. Some complaints are not being able to wear sleeveless tops, dresses, bathing suits and having to wear long-sleeved dresses, tops, and blouses in warmer climates. An arm lift in Silver Spring and Potomac, is a surgical procedure which removes extra skin and fat from the upper arms.
Sometimes, if there is only excess fat but the elasticity of the skin is good, then liposuction alone would give you a great result. Just envision yourself going sleeveless again if you have excess, loose skin and localized fat in your arms after weight loss, or due to aging or heredity.
An arm lift can remove excess fat and skin from your arms, tighten and firm your arms, as well as define and tone when considered with liposuction.
