6 Benefits of an Arm Lift

Arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the upper arms by removing excess skin and fat. The procedure is typically sought after by individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with sagging skin or those who have experienced a loss of skin elasticity due to aging. The surgery involves making an incision along the underside of the arm and removing excess skin and fat, then repositioning the remaining skin to create a tighter and smoother appearance.

At Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery in Knoxville, we specialize in arm lift procedures, providing patients with the highest quality care and service.

Here are six benefits of an arm lift that you should know:

1. Improved contours

An arm lift surgery can help to create a more toned and defined arm contour by removing excess skin and fat. This can result in a more sculpted and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

2. Improved proportionality

Excess skin and fat on the upper arms can make the arms appear disproportionately large compared to the rest of the body. Arm lift surgery can improve overall body proportionality by creating a more balanced arm-to-body ratio.

3. Improved physical function and reduced discomfort

In some cases, excess skin on the upper arms can interfere with physical activity, hinder range of motion or cause discomfort. Arm lift surgery can improve physical function by removing excess skin, allowing for greater freedom of movement and improved overall comfort levels.

4. Enhanced weight loss results

For patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, arm lift surgery can help to further enhance weight loss results by removing excess skin and fat.

5. Customizable and long-lasting results

Arm lift surgery can be tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs and goals, allowing for a customized treatment approach. The results of an arm lift surgery are generally long-lasting, provided that patients maintain a healthy lifestyle and maintain their weight.

 6. More clothing options & improved self-confidence

Many people with sagging or excess skin on their upper arms may feel self-conscious about wearing sleeveless clothing or showing their arms in public.  Following an arm lift, you may notice that your shirt size has gone down. An arm lift can give you more clothing options and you’ll be less self-conscious to wear sleeveless tops in public.
