Excess skin on the arms or thighs – caused by ageing or sudden weight loss – can be surgically removed with a local lifting operation. The extent of the scarring will depend on the seriousness of the initial situation, but the scars will be hidden within the natural folds of the body.
Arm and thigh lifts correct the flabby, sagging appearance of the limbs, restoring tone to the affected area. The appearance of the operated area on will be slimmer and the skin more tight, with scarring proportional to the benefit of the surgery. The procedure is often combined with liposuction to further sculpt the treated area. After some initial swelling, the treated areas will be progressively reshaped, also with the help of elastic abdominal binders.
