Arm & Thighs Surgery
An arm lift consists of tightening loose, sagging skin on the arms. Excess skin is excised, and the remaining skin is drawn more tightly to create a firmer, more youthful appearance. A thigh lift does the same, but on the thighs instead of the upper arms.
As we age, the skin elasticity reduces and the skin begins to lose it’s fullness and this results into saggy skin on upper arms and inner thighs where the skin is thinnest. This can cause self-consciousness when wearing summer clothes like t-shirts or shorts. In some cases, aging isn’t the only reason for the skin to sag. It can also be cause by gaining and losing too much weight over time. For that reason, anyone at any age can experience the excess skin on the upper arms and inner thighs.Incisions will be made either on the inner arm or back of the arm for an arm lift, and on the inner thigh for a thigh lift. Utmost care has to be taken in the replacement of the incisions to be well hidden. But it has to be taken in consideration that there will be scars after the surgery. But the comfort of not having the excess skin in this area and just replacing them with well hidden scars will be worth to be have this surgery.
Candidates for an arm or thigh lift will have loose, sagging skin that they want to tighten. If you have stubborn underarm or thigh fat, liposuction can be combined with the Arm and Thigh Lift Surgery for optimal results. You’ll see immediate improvement following your arm or thigh lift surgery, but you won’t see your final results until the swelling and bruising has gone down. Swelling can last for several weeks, but the results will be seen more as the body heals. Overall results are long lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness.
