Arm Lifts: Advice from a Premier Plastic Surgery Practice

As warmer weather approaches, now is a great time to plan for rejuvenated arms that can help improve your confidence and get you ready for a memorable summer. If you’re looking to achieve tighter, more toned arms, a Brachioplasty (commonly known as an Arm Lift) may be right for you. Let’s find out in this quick read…

Common Signs of Aging Arms

As we age, gravity takes its toll on our body, and one of the areas that can start to show early signs of aging are the arms. Excess arm fat or drooping, sagging skin in this area (often called “bat wings”) can prevent men and women of all ages from feeling their best in certain clothing and during certain activities, such as exercising, swimming, or just going about daily life.

At The Lucas Center, we don’t want excess fat or skin around the arms to hold you back any longer. Over the past 20 years, we’ve proudly helped patients achieve precise, long-lasting results with cosmetic surgery procedures like Arm Lifts—many of whom report feeling more confident than ever post-surgery! 

If you live in Knoxville, Maryville, the Tri-Cities (Kingsport, Johnson City, Bristol), or a surrounding area in East Tennessee, here’s a few things to consider before consulting with a plastic surgeon near you…

What Causes Sagging Arm Skin?

Life happens—and many of the events we experience along the way can result in sagging skin on the arms. In addition to general aging and the effects of gravity over time, excess arm fat and hanging skin can also be the result of significant weight loss, pregnancy, or genetics. 

Unfortunately, like many other areas of the body, once the skin loses volume and elasticity, it cannot be replenished with exercise or dieting. The only solution to achieving toned, defined arms is surgery.

While this can be frustrating for many patients (especially those who work hard to get and stay in shape), we want you to know that you aren’t alone. Aging arms are completely natural, but it doesn’t mean you have to live with them. That’s where premier Knoxville Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Jay Lucas, can help.
