If you recently just completed a diet and exercise regimen and have slender, toned arms to show for it then congratulations! If, however, you are still self -conscious about your arms because you have excess skin because of your weight loss, then you may want to consider getting an arm lift done by Dr. Gregory Wiener. Before you take the leap, however, this article will list three things for you to know beforehand.
What It Does
If there’s one thing to know about the human body it’s that it is extremely resilient. That injury you got a few months ago has probably healed up right now and that burn you got ast summer is more than likely long gone. Even though the body is extremely resilient, it can’t always come back from everything. Specifically, a lot of patients who lose a lot of weight end up having excess skin that won’t tighten up on its own. With an arm lift, we surgically remove excess skin from your arms so that you have a more taut appearance.
Who It’s Good For
Typically, arm lifts are best suited for patients who have a lot of excess skin on their upper arms, but don’t necessarily have a lot of fat. If you do have a lot of excess skin and fat, then we may recommend that you get an arm lift in conjunction with another procedure like liposuction.
How can I Tell If It’s Right For Me?
The best way for you to determine whether or not an arm lift is a good procedure for you is to come into our office for a consultation appointment. During your consultation appointment, we will take a look at your arms and then sit down with you to answer all of your questions and concerns. Then from there, we will determine whether or not an arm lift will give you the results that you want or if we should consider taking another route.
