Body contouring surgery encompasses a number of different body sculpting techniques used by cosmetic surgeons to reshape almost any area of the body. Through body sculpting surgery, patients can effectively eliminate excess fat and skin that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.
Skin commonly loses its elasticity throughout the arms as a result of natural aging or rapid weight loss. Arm lift surgery tightens and tones the upper arms, restoring a youthful contour. Patients with excess fat on their arms may elect to have liposuction performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures for even more dramatic results. Many patients, who had previously been fearful of wearing revealing clothing or of raising their arms over their heads report an increase in self-confidence after the procedure.
