If you’ve experienced major weight loss, odds are that you’re dealing with a fair amount of excess drooping skin tissue. When a person gains weight, the skin expands to compensate. When they lose a lot of weight, the skin typically will not be able to shrink to its original size. Instead, excess skin is created. This cannot be exercised away; you’ll have to deal with it using a brachioplasty.
A brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is a type of plastic surgery procedure designed to remove the excess skin that comes along with weight loss. This excess skin can also be caused by genetics and the aging process.
Doctors Calvin Peters and Kendall Peters, board-certified plastic surgeons, will be happy to tell you more about brachioplasty and the causes of your excess arm skin. To make an appointment for a consultation, contact us today!
