Men and women who are embarrassed by the sagging skin underneath their arms may feel self-conscious about the appearance of their skin and body. This skin may occur due to many different changes in one’s life. Weight loss, pregnancy, and increasing age can cause this excess skin to hang. It can cause individuals to cover their body to avoid exposure of these imperfections. However, at Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey, our doctor is pleased to provide patients with an option to address this problem: the arm lift.
What is an arm lift?
The goal with an arm lift is to help remove excess skin from the upper arm area to help patients feel beautiful and confident with the appearance of their arms. This procedure may include the incorporation of liposuction to remove any excess fat in the area. Then, an incision is made to remove excess skin and tighten the area. The doctor pays close attention to the area in which the incision is made to reduce the appearance of scarring and disguise it whenever possible. In most cases, Dr. Frank Ferraro can create the incision in the armpit area, making it less noticeable than incisions made elsewhere on the arms.
What can an arm lift achieve?
In most cases, an arm lift can dramatically change the appearance of the upper body, especially if excess fat is removed as well as excess skin. Patients can lift their arms and wear sleeveless tops without feeling embarrassed. They can feel confident each and every day about their body, which can make a dramatic impact on one’s overall emotional wellness.
Who is a candidate for an arm lift?
Any patient who wants to improve the appearance of their arms and address excess skin laxity are invited to call the practice of Dr. Frank Ferraro. During a consultation appointment, our team will evaluate a patient to determine if they are a good fit for this or other cosmetic treatments available.
