Many individuals use clothing as a way to hide features of their body they do not like. For example, people will wear long-sleeved shirts on hot days to hide their arms. They may have sagging skin or too much arm fat. In addition to feeling uncomfortable because you are wearing hot clothing on a hot day, not feeling satisfied with your appearance can have a negative effect on your self-esteem. While everyone else is outside at the beach in tank tops and swimsuits, you may completely decline an invitation to join your friends, or you may just sit in the shade while everyone else has fun. Fortunately, an arm lift can help you to deal with flabby arms.
An arm lift is a surgical procedure that is used to remove loose skin on your arms. At times, individuals have sagging skin on their arms because at one time they were heavy and then lost a lot of weight. Even though they feel much more satisfied with their appearance because they lost weight and are enjoying better health, they still feel embarrassed to show their body off because of the sagging skin that hangs on their arms.
Sagging skin is also part of the natural aging process. Even if a person has been trim and fit their entire life, they may begin to see sagging skin on their arms as they get older. An arm lift can be just what a person needs to feel proud to show their arms off to the world and to have their clothing fit better.
The first time you come into our office will be for a scheduled consultation. During this meeting, our medical professionals will examine your health history and your arms. In addition to looking at excess skin that may be removed from the arms, they will also examine the condition of your skin. If it is decided that an arm lift is right for you, the surgery will be scheduled.
Once you have fully recovered from an arm lift procedure, you will feel proud to show your arms off to the world. You will be happy to wear short-sleeved shirts on hot days, and you may even be tempted to wear them on not-so-hot days! To see if an arm lift is right for you, visit the office of Dr. J. Anthony Stephens, MD in Baton Rouge. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
