If the underside of your upper arms are sagging, droopy or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you. While exercise can help strengthen and improve overall muscle tone, it can’t do much for skin that has lost elasticity. The arm lift procedure will help reduce excess skin and the fat between the underarm and the elbow. Immediately following an arm lift procedure, you can expect immediate results, including smoother skin and a more toned and proportionate overall appearance. Once the swelling subsides, the results will be even more dramatic. An arm lift procedure can be a very rewarding procedure, especially for patients who have undergone gastric bypass surgery and suffer from folds of skin, rashes, skin irritation as a result of excess skin. San Francisco Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shahin Javaheri can help educate you about the arm lift procedure, so that you know what to expect before you make a decision.
