Take Up Arms – With an Arm Lift!
Aging is a natural process, but that does not mean that we have to like the results! One area of the body that shows its age before others is the arm. Arms often sag, especially in the area of the triceps, the large muscle group on the underside of the upper arm. Although exercise can tone the triceps themselves, the saggy skin and “flab” of the upper arm cannot be corrected easily, if at all, through exercise.
An arm lift is a cosmetic procedure that benefits patients by tightening the loose skin and toning the upper arm’s appearance. This can give you a much more youthful look. San Diego arm lift specialist Dr. Sadrian can help you achieve beautiful results with this procedure.
What Happens During an Arm Lift?
The arm lift procedure focuses on the under portion of the upper arm. Skin in this area tends to lose its elasticity, becoming loose and hanging from the back of the triceps. The arm lift corrects this problem by addressing the triceps area and the sagging skin and tissue that can collect there.
During an arm lift, an incision is made that allows Dr. Sadrian to remove excess skin, fat and tissue that is bunched in the triceps area. The arm is reshaped and contoured to look youthful and natural. The results will feel as they did when you were much younger.
Depending on the scope of the arm lift procedure, an incision may be made along the back of the arm or around the arm pit. The same liposuction techniques that are used with other areas of the body may also be effective with an arm lift.
Will An Arm Lift Benefit Me?
One of the best things about an arm lift is that it provides nearly instant results. Arms look thinner and sleeker immediately after the surgery, and incisions heal within two weeks in most cases. Further, with regular exercise and care your arms will retain their beautiful appearance for a long time.
