Do I Need an Arm Lift or Is Liposuction Enough?
Is liposuction enough to improve the appearance of my arms or do I need an arm lift? This is a common question that many people have. It can be answered by checking for one key thing: loose skin.
Liposuction is strictly a body-contouring procedure that addresses the accumulation of excess fat in the upper arms. If you simply have small amounts of sagging fat in your arms, liposuction is your ideal option.
However, liposuction does not tighten the skin. If your skin has become stretched and loose as a result of aging or weight loss, you will need to have an arm lift to correct it. The only way to properly address the issue is by excising the excess upper-arm skin and tightly suturing the remaining skin together to create a sleek and well-defined shape.
