Sometimes called Bat Wings, or having the Double Wave – Having big arms due to loose, flabby skin is a big deal. It’s a common problem for anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight. Some people are born with large arms and loose skin, but many Arm Lift patients have lost weight through diet and exercise or after bariatric surgery. For them, the larger the weight loss, the bigger the problem. Unfortunately, no amount of exercise or diet will fix this. In fact, more weight loss only exacerbates the problem. For loose, flabby arms there are only two options: an Arm Lift or to live with it.
An arm lift, or otherwise known as brachioplasty, can remove the excess skin and fat deposits, leaving the upper arms with a more pleasing and youthful contour. As a person ages, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. Brachioplasty literally means “arm changing.” Whether you’re considering brachioplasty due to weight loss or from aging, the ideal candidate is a healthy individual, with a large amount of loose, redundant upper arm skin.
Dr. Magassy will consult with patients about undergoing surgery for an arm lift if they wish to tighten the skin and have more toned looking arms. The incision extends from the elbow to the underarm, and sometimes on to the side of the chest. Every patient is different, so the Arm Lift is adapted to your unique needs.
