Anyone who has used diet and exercise to lose weight should be applauded. This is especially the case if a person had to go on a long journey from being obese to getting down to a healthy weight. Losing weight takes a lot of dedication. While the vast majority of people out there feel very satisfied with their weight loss results, some feel unsatisfied with the way their body looks after losing weight. They imagined that they would be thinner, toned and muscular. However, when they look in the mirror, that is not what they see. They see a much slimmer figure, but they also see a lot of loose skin. This is especially common with the arms. If you are dealing with loose, excess skin on your arms, you may benefit from an arm lift.
Interestingly, it is not only those who have lost weight who have to deal with excess skin on their upper arms. Even those who have been slim all their life can start to have this problem because of the way our skin changes as we get older.
If you would like to feel satisfied with your appearance after weight loss, getting an arm lift procedure may be the right thing for you. If the problem you have is a lot of excess skin on your arms, an arm lift can help you remove that excess skin.
What Can I Expect?
Just as no two people are the same, each arm lift procedure will be tailored to the needs of the patient. In general, however, the procedure consists of suctioning away excess fat, tightening the muscles and repositioning the skin to make the arms look tight and toned. Dr. Hendricks will discuss your needs and goals with you during your consultation so he can tailor the procedure directly to your needs.
Am I Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?
The best way for you to determine your candidacy for an arm lift procedure is to visit Southeastern Dermatology for a consultation. During this consultation, Dr. Hendricks will look at the skin that you would like to have treated. We will also talk about your health history and goals and help you determine if this is the right course of action for you.
