BODY CHANGES IN ARMLIFT

As a person gains weight excess fatty tissue accumulates in the arms and stretches the overlying skin. As the person looses weight or ages, the stretched skin looses its elasticity and ability to contour to the underlying fat, creating the appearance of droopy skin, loose skin, or commonly known “wings”. In some people, the skin retains its elasticity and contours again to the underlying tissues; in this situation there is no droopy skin but there is excess fatty tissue that creates a bulky and full appearance.

The procedure is chosen after identifying the areas of fatty tissue and loose skin. Dr. Rueda analyzes each patient’s case meticulously to offer the procedure that leads to the best arm contour.
