We are all born naturally predisposed as to where we will gain and hang on to weight. For some of us it’s our abdomen, love-handles, backside or thighs, and for some, it’s the arms. Unfortunately, it’s not always limited to just one area either! Some of us, no matter how many curls we accomplish at the gym will not be able to lose the amount of weight desired to get the definition desired. That said, people who have lost a significant amount of weight, either through diet and exercise or gastric bypass, are often left with sagging excess skin around their arms and other areas as well.
Brachioplasty, also known as an Arm Lift, is one solution available to treat these issues. To be considered an ideal candidate for this procedure, it’s preferred that you’ve been at a stable weight (not considered obese) for the past several months, do not smoke, are in good health and have realistic expectations about the procedure- realize that you aren’t likely to come out of the procedure with Jessica Biel’s biceps! What you can expect to get out of it, however, is an improved, tighter version of your own.
