There are many factors that contribute to the way our bodies age over time and the speed at which they show those signs of aging. Men and women who have undergone a significant weight loss, as is often seen with bariatric surgery, often find that they have excess, sagging skin that may make them look older than they are. Many people find as they get older, particularly women, that the upper arms become less toned and firm; this can cause as “winged” appearance in the upper arms that many people feel self-conscious about, especially as the weather turns warm and shorter sleeves become preferable.
To assist people who are unhappy with their upper arm appearance, Dr. Ashpole performed the Arm Lift. Arm Lift, also known as Brachioplasty, is a procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the upper arms by removing excess skin to sculpt the arms into a smoother, more toned and youthful look. The Arm Lift is sometimes done in combination with Liposuction to also remove excess, pockets of fat from the area.
