Thigh and Arm Lifting
After an important weight loss or secondarily to ageing, arms and thighs lose some tone and the skin can become saggy and stretched. This condition can give discomfort while exercising or during every-day life tasks. This superfluous skin can also the cause embarrassment. The lifting of thighs and/or arms can clearly improve the appearance and the firmness of these regions.
Substantial and/or repeated weight fluctuations can cause stretch marks which are small tears of the skin leaving long-lasting scars. Because this intervention removes the excess of skin, these stretch marks can be removed. Thighs and/or arms will be then of smoother and more uniform appearance. For an optimal result, it is possible to combine this operation with a liposuction to remove more superfluous fat.
After the operation, a rest of at least one week is recommended and simple instructions shall be given to optimize the recovery and the appearance of scars.
