Men and women of the Littleton, Colorado area who are unhappy with excess fat and skin the upper arms are encouraged to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Lisa Hunsicker of Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics to learn about the benefits of the arm lift procedure.
Understanding the arm lift procedure
The arm lift procedure, or brachioplasty, is a reliable and effective way for men and women to have excess fat and skin removed from the upper arms. This area can be troublesome for patients, causing the fat and skin to hang when the arms are extended upward. Patients who have tried diet and exercise to improve not only their overall health but to reduce fat throughout the body may find that the fat in the arms can be extremely stubborn and resistant to change. This is when the arm lift procedure is often considered, during which the doctor will remove excess skin and fat to firm and contour the upper arm effectively.
What causes excess fat and skin in this area?
The upper arms can hold excess fat and skin for many reasons:
- Excess fat on the upper arms is often resistant to exercise and dieting, making it difficult to slim these areas down
- Some patients have a genetic, hereditary component that makes them more susceptible to excess upper arm fat and skin despite attempts to improve with fitness and nutrition
- Patients who have experienced massive weight loss or fluctuations may be more prone to excess skin and fat in these areas
Who is a good candidate for the arm lift procedure?
The best candidates for the upper arm lift are adult patients within their ideal weight range who seek to firm and contour this area of the body. Patients should not consider an upper arm lift as a weight loss procedure, and should continue to maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle to keep the results while improving overall health and wellness.
