Arms are vital body parts aesthetically as well as functionally and can make us look beautiful, younger and healthier. As symbols of energy and strength, arms are particularly important for the elegance of the human body with their look, shape and consistency. Aging process over time weakens the muscular tone and skin elasticity. As a result, skin becomes flaccid and arms lose their previous shape. Gravity also weakens the muscular tone gradually but continuously. Therefore, tissues of the arms area start drooping.
Oftentimes, fat deposits and excessive skin in the arms area cannot be eliminated through dietary means and therefore become persistent problems. A strong diet or quick weight loss can cause flaccidity and drooping of the arms skin even in young men and women (including 18 - 20 years old), thus creating problems and troubles in the everyday life such as redness and bruising at the friction areas. Over time, infections and skin lesions at the armpits can appear in some cases. Such infections are difficult to be treated with medications or antibiotics. This imperfection is not necessarily related only to overweight but also to loss of tone and elasticity which can happen to persons of normal weight. It is a particularly critical area since deformations and arms’ skin flaccidity can appear even in young ages due to genetic factors, lifestyle, sport activities, etc.
The surgical intervention of arm lifting consists in the removal of excessive fat and skin and arms reinvigoration so as to achieve harmonic and optimal outcomes.
KEIT® aesthetic surgeons recommend the arm lift surgery in cases when:
- There is excessive fat accumulation in the arms area,
- Arms are flaccid, stretch marks are visible or skin is excessive and wrinkled due to genetic construct or gravity,
- There is excessive and sagging skin at the arms area because of aging or sudden and quick weight loss.
