This part of the body is a problematic area for many. The reconstruction of the upper arm to eliminate size associated with excess subcutaneous tissue along with redundant skin removal grant the patient a slimmer more youthful appearance in this area. The pictures below demonstrate, for the most part in this case, a lax skin/redundant skin removal.
This natural phenomenom happens due to age and also weightloss in which the underlying fatty tissue has left inturn depleting the area of volume. When this happens, the skin that had surrounded that volume is left sagging. Skin by nature fails to retract after such an event, therefore surgical correction is sought after to help alleviate this problem.
Most patient's realize after the procedure, that clothing fits better and their overall look is now proportional.
