Upper Arm Lift
People don’t all put on weight in the same places. Some put on a lot of weight in the arms or in the belly and others in the hips and thighs. With the help of gravity the heavy areas stretch out. Sometimes people lose a lot of weight and the stretched skin hangs down. The arms look like “bat wings” in some severe cases.
For these severe cases the excess skin is removed from the armpit to the elbow on the inside of the arm. There is a long scar but they are not seen when the hands are held next to the body. Patients who have serious loose skin are willing to exchange their loose skin for the scar.
