While many enjoy hot summers by lightening up their wardrobe by wearing tank tops and bikinis, others often prefer winter and long sleeve shirts to help keep their arms covered. Excess fat and skin in the upper arms can be an annoyance to some who are bothered by loose skin dangling and subsequently avoid short sleeve shirts. For those bothered by loose skin in the arms may fine comfort knowing there is a surgical procedure that can remove the excess skin.

While there are a variety of non-surgical skin tightening procedures that can address lose skin of the arms, non-surgical skin tightening is often lacking in the efficacy and may provide minimal benefit. While brachioplasty comes at the need for scar at the medial arm, brachioplasty provides dramatic results to eliminate loose dangling skin.

There are several reasons as to why someone might be considering a brachioplasty. Whether it be from having a bariatric procedure done that has caused you to lose a tremendous amount of weight in a short amount of time or due to the loss of skin elasticity caused by natural aging, this procedure helps get rid of the excess, sagging skin and fat along the armpit to the elbow.

Go Ahead, Go Sleeveless - Brachioplasty - Clinique Dallas Plastic SurgeryOne of the main reasons as to why someone would oppose undergoing a brachioplasty, would be the visible inner arm scar that comes with it. As mentioned earlier, the incision is brought closer to the inside of the arm to help make it less visible. But sadly, everyone does not heal the same and there is no certainty of how the scar will migrate or fade. There are several options for scar treatment that can help diminish the appearance of the scar to a certain extent. But, for most people, especially those who have had to deal with the ongoing constant discomfort from excess skin in the arm region, a major scar, as a result, is the least of their concern.

In conclusion, for anyone considering if this is the right procedure for them, with prepped planning, and realistic expectations, an armlift can help improve ones lifestyle and for some offer a new beginning to regaining that dream body that they once thought could never be achievable.
