How to Get Rid of Saggy, Flabby Arms & Loose Arm Skin
The first day of summer has finally arrived in the Detroit area! And as men and women pull out their bathing suits and tank tops for some summer fun, they can often be disheartened by the appearance of their flabby arms and saggy, hanging loose arm skin.
Unfortunately even rigorous exercise typically won’t tighten and tone the annoying skin that hangs down from the upper arm. But the good news is that Detroit area board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali can permanently tone and tighten even the saggiest arms with routine and affordable arm lift surgery.
What Causes Flabby Arms & Loose Arm Skin?
Sometimes unkindly called “bat wings” or “bingo wings” loose skin on the arms can be the result of significant weight gain and/or loss, or simply caused by the aging process, gravity, or just a genetic predisposition to saggy arm skin.
In other words, if you have lost a lot of weight, or if you are over 50, or if your mom had loose arm skin, there’s a good chance you will end up with flabby arms.
Whatever the cause of loose arm skin, it simply can’t be remedied with exercise because it is the skin (and not the muscle) that is “loose”. While exercise can tighten muscles, it does not tone skin.
How to Get Rid of Flabby Arms & Loose Arm Skin
Fortunately, new technologies and advancements in surgical techniques have now made it faster, easier and safer to get rid of loose, flabby upper arm skin with routine arm lift surgery.
These new arm lift surgeries enable Detroit area board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali to surgically get rid of flabby arms with better results, less discomfort and substantially less downtime.
In fact there has been an astounding 5000% increase in arm lift surgeries in the last twenty years, according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Their 2018 report indicates that there were 338 arm lifts performed in the year 2000, more than 15, 000 performed in 2012, and 18,033 arm lift surgeries in the US in 2018!
How Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty) Is Performed
Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty) is a fairly “routine” and safe surgical intervention for individuals who have experienced significant weight loss, natural aging, or genetics that have left them with excess skin and a lack of arm contour.
The brachioplasty procedure typically begins with the patient under general anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali, will then make an incision on the inner aspect of the upper arm. The length and pattern of the incision will vary depending on the extent of skin laxity and the patient’s unique anatomy. Dr. Ali will skillfully remove the excess skin and fat, reshaping the underlying tissues to create a smoother, more toned appearance.
One of the key advantages of entrusting your arm lift surgery to a skilled and certified board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali is the ability to achieve beautiful results with minimal scarring. Dr. Ali’s expertise allows for precise incision placement and closure techniques that promote faster healing and the most discreet scars possible. Following the procedure, patients typically experience a relatively fast recovery period, and any post-operative discomfort is managed with prescribed medications. As the treated area heals and swelling subsides, a sculpted, contoured arm is revealed that enhances one’s overall appearance, makes them look younger, and boosts confidence.
Arm Lifts Permanently Get Rid of Loose Arm Skin
One of the best things about an arm lift for loose or flabby arm skin is that the results are permanent, as long as the patient does not gain or lose a significant amount of weight after. Of course, the body will still undergo the normal aging process, but once the loose arm skin is removed, it’s gone for good.
And, for patients with excess upper arm fat, in addition to loose arm skin, arm lift surgery can also be combined with liposuction. Liposuction is also a permanent procedure that “sucks out” excess fat through a small tube – and once the fat cells are removed they will never return in that area!
