The appearance of your arms depends on the tone and definition of the muscles in the arms and the appearance and elasticity of the arm skin. You may have strong arm muscles that lack the proper definition because there is an excess of loose skin and small pockets of fat on the upper arm. The arm lift procedure eliminates the factors that diminish the appearance of your arms.
During the arm lift procedure, an incision is made under the upper arm from the elbow to the armpit. Liposuction is used to drain the area of any excess fat so that your muscle definition can be enhanced. The arm skin is then tightly pulled over the muscles and any excess skin is excised. Your arms should look toned, and your skin should have a tight and smooth appearance.
