For some people, the natural aging process can leave them with excess skin on their arms that can make it difficult to wear certain clothes for fear of exposing this dangling skin. This excess skin may also settle under the arm and can cause irritation and chafing over time. Both of these are good reasons to consider an brachioplasty or “arm lift” today. Dr. Sadati has been offering arm lift procedures to his patients in Newport Beach for years and has the experience to help you eliminate this excess arm fat quickly and let you get back to wearing the clothes you want.
Beyond just a cosmetic issue, this excess skin may also be affecting a patient’s health and comfort. Having excess skin from your upper arm in constant contact with other parts of your body can cause irritation when you move your arm. This can lead to chaffing and possibly a rash over time making for a very uncomfortable situation. Having Dr. Sadati perform an arm lift can provide immediate relief from this irritation and help the patient lead a happy and healthier life.
This excess skin can be the result of heredity since many people inherit the condition from their parents. In this case, no amount of exercise or dieting can reduce this sagging skin and only an arm lift can help. Other people develop the condition after they have lost a significant amount of weight. The skin that used to cover their larger arms may now be hanging loose and need adjusting to accommodate their new profile. The good news is that Dr. Sadati has the expertise to remove this excess skin through an arm lift that was the result of either of these situations.
An arm lift procedure can vary somewhat for each patient depending on how much excess skin they have and where it is located. A typical session done under IV sedation involves removing some of the excess skin and then tightening the remaining skin over the arm. The minor surgery this procedure involves is safe and will leave little trace of the procedure after it’s done. An arm lift is also typically a permanent procedure and any improvements that the excess skin removal provides will last a lifetime.
