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 itís been eliminated-such as your arm- can continue to look flabby due to loose skin.

An arm lift from Dr. Jonathan Toy in Edmonton is technically known as a brachioplasty, but most important for you to know is that the procedure addresses the looseness by tightening the skin and removing any excess fat.
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 donít 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.
This surgery can contain one or more of several steps.
Dr. Toy will eliminate any stubborn fat as necessary via liposuction. Without these unwanted pockets, you 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 back or inside of your arm, through which he can tighten and shape the underlying muscle and other tissue. Without an excess layer of fat to cover it, this tissue will give your arm even more definition.
If your skin doesn't have the proper elasticity to shrink back after the fat removal and tissue reshaping, your arm lift will also include excess skin removal. 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.
