Firm, well-defined arms is symbolic of youthful strength and beauty. But many people develop loose and sagging skin in their upper arms that droops and even jiggles with movement. It can certainly be embarrassing especially in warm weather when the latest in fashion calls for the arms to be exposed.
Sagging skin in the upper arms can be a result of the natural aging process. As we age skin loses its elasticity and becomes prone to the forces of gravity. In other cases, loose arm skin can be the result of significant weight loss. And no amount of exercise is going to tighten that skin up. If skin has stretched over heavier arms then a smaller frame after weight loss cannot accommodate that extra skin. Many feel very disappointed after working so hard to achieve a healthy weight. The scales make you sing but the image of the loose skin in the mirror can cause discouragement.
Don’t resort to wearing long sleeves all year round. You don’t have to stare at all the fun, stylish clothes in your closet but never put them on. And bathing suits? Well, that’s out of the question.
If you’re unhappy with loose and sagging skin in your arms, there are options for you. Brachioplasty, or an “arm lift”, can surgically remove excess skin on the upper arms giving you the well-contoured arms you desire.
