Whether through age or weight loss, excess skin and fat can begin to sag and loosen between the underarm and elbow. This jiggling tissue can be embarrassing or even make it more difficult to exercise and find clothes that fit properly. And while exercise can build muscle tone, it can’t eliminate this extra tissue. In Fort Wayne, Indiana, a cosmetic procedure can help. Arm lifts, performed by Dr. Lee, can alleviate that extra arm tissue.
With an arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, you can remove that extra skin and tissue and have more firm, toned-looking arms. You can wear the short-sleeved clothes that you’ve always wanted to wear. You can achieve a more youthful, proportionate look. And it will be easier to stay physically active. Patients from the Warsaw and Angola areas see great results with their arm lift procedures.
If you’re considering an arm lift, you’ll first meet with Dr. Lee. He will take the time to get to know you and talk about your goals for your arm lift.
Be prepared to share your medical history, including previous surgeries, medical conditions, drug allergies and current medications. Dr. Lee will conduct an exam to assess the elasticity of your skin, take measurements of your arms and take photos for your records.
It is important that you be as close to your ideal weight as possible before undergoing an arm lift. If you lose weight after your procedure, your tightened skin will again be loose and sag. If you gain weight after your procedure, you will stretch your tightened skin or undo the results of your arm lift.
If you have excess fat in your upper arms, Dr. Lee may recommend liposuction in conjunction with your arm lift. Your visit at his Fort Wayne office can help you learn more about an arm lift procedure and the options that are available to you.
