The Effects of Weight Loss on Your Arms

Published on February 24, 2017 by Brian Joseph

Your skin may be very durable, but there are still limitations to what it is able to handle. When the body undergoes significant weight loss, areas like your arms can lose a significant amount of volume, which can give your arms a flabby, uneven, and unattractive appearance.

Before your weight loss, your arm skin grew and stretched to better cover the excess amount of fat present in the area. When that fat disappeared, your stretched-out skin stayed stretched. This skin droops and hangs off the body, and pockets of excess fat can also remain in the area, giving your upper arms a sagging look.

The arm lift procedure removes both the excess skin and fat in the upper arms to make them look tighter and more toned. Contact us to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Joseph for your arm lift.
