Am I a suitable candidate for an Arm Lift?
Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow. Suitable candidates are men and women who desire a more youthful and less flabby appearance in the upper arm.
If you have tried countless diets and exercise regimes and still feel self- conscious about your arms’ appearance, then brachioplasty is definitely something to consider. In fact, as you lose weight you will find that your arms become flabbier. Their functionality can also be impaired. Arm lift surgery can provide an effective solution to all these problems.
Who is not a suitable candidate for an arm lift?
Women who have had a mastectomy should not have an arm lift. Since the surgery affects the lymphatic drainage, the combined procedures may cause the arm to swell permanently.
