Wear short sleeves again with confidence. 

Loose, sagging arm skin, or “bat wings,” is often a result of dramatic weight loss, inherited features, or the effects of aging. Sadly, the solution for too many is to avoid wearing short sleeves altogether and, instead, hide their arms in long, baggy clothing. Fortunately, the arm lift may be the ideal solution for restoring a more youthful appearance.

The arm is predisposed to sagging skin because it has fewer attachments to the deeper tissues. Treatments such as liposuction can remove the stubborn, excess fat in the arm, but it does not address the issue of loose skin. That’s where the arm lift comes in. 

An arm lift procedure, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed by Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons to make the arm circumference smaller, smoother, and firmer by removing both fat and loose skin. In many instances, both liposuction and the excision are performed in the same surgery. 

The results of an arm lift are dramatic. Following an arm lift procedure, Crystal Clinic patients commonly express how thrilled they are to once again be comfortable exposing their arms and wearing short sleeve clothing. They feel better about their arm shape and, in turn, feel better about themselves, have a more positive attitude, and enjoy having expanded fashion options.

The best way to know if an arm lift is right for you is to sit down with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons specialist for a personal consultation. Together, you will discuss your condition, your desired results, the details of the procedure and post-procedure expectations, financial options, and any concerns or questions you may have. 

The first step is to schedule an appointment. Please be assured that scheduling an initial consultation with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons expert will not obligate you to move forward with any procedure.
