Tight and toned arms are something that a lot of people want. Unfortunately, this can be more difficult than just lifting weights and staying active. A lot of people deal with issues like loose excess skin and stubborn pockets of excess fat around the upper arms. This can give the arms an unattractive appearance and can make it difficult or uncomfortable to wear certain clothing items. It can also result in the dreaded “bat wing” look.

If you are bothered by the appearance of your saggy upper arms, you can address these issues and restore the appearance of your arms by getting an arm lift. This surgical procedure can give your upper arms the tight and toned appearance you have always wanted.

What Happens During an Arm Lift?

An arm lift is performed by making several incisions along the back of the upper arms. If needed, any excess arm fat can be removed. Liposuction may be performed during the procedure to help eliminate any fat from the area.

Once the fat is removed, any loose excess upper arm skin will be surgically cut away. The remaining upper arm skin will be tightly pulled over the arm muscles to give the arms a tighter and more toned appearance. The incisions will then be tightly sutured shut and bandaged.
