Arm Lift in Edmonton

Why consider an arm lift? A dramatic change in weight can be good for your health and appearance, but your body might not get rid of fat evenly from head to toe.

Pockets of fat can remain, or areas where it’s been eliminated – such as your arm – can continue to look flabby due to loose skin.

An arm lift (brachioplasty) from Dr. Jonathan Toy in Edmonton can improve the appearance of the arm by removing the excess skin and fat. This can result in a more contoured, and shapely arm. In many cases, liposuction can be combined with skin removal to help reduce the arm size and slim the arm even more. Other procedures can also be performed at the same time to improve the appearance including an upper body lift to remove skin along the side of the chest or back, or a breast lift to reshape and elevate the breast.

If you raise your arm and find an abundance of skin and fat hanging down, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. That wobbly, jiggly tissue can develop after weight loss. Such sagging skin can also develop naturally as you get older, and can even be genetic.

Dieting, exercise, and other weight loss methods don’t always work to eliminate fat and skin from everywhere you’d like to see it gone. Dr. Toy will examine your problem areas and consult with you about the look you’d like to achieve. He may recommend an arm lift alone or as part of several procedures designed to work together to give you a toned, proportionate look.

Arm lift details

This surgery can contain one or more of several steps.

In some cases, Dr. Toy will eliminate any stubborn fat as necessary via liposuction. Without these unwanted pockets, your arm will look sleeker and slimmer. Remember, you may be carrying fat that won’t go away no matter how much physical work you put into it.

He may also make an incision on the inside of your arm, through which he can remove the extra skin and recontour the appearance. Without an excess layer of fat to cover it, this tissue will give your arm even more definition.

The amount of skin to be removed varies from person to person and depends on how well your arm skin sits over your new, thinner contours.

An arm lift can be incorporated into an overall upper body lift, and can complement other procedures, such as a thigh lift or entire lower body lift.
