When the upper arms develop hanging skin and pockets of excess fat, they can take on a “bat wing”-like appearance. This unfortunate condition does not have to permanent. Many patients come in for a procedure called the arm lift, also known as brachioplasty surgery.

The excess drooping skin on the arms comes about as a result of many factors. As we age, our skin’s structural integrity lessens. This is due to the decrease in collagen and elastin production in the tissues. When our skin becomes less elastic, it cannot cling to our contours as well as it used to. Couple this with dramatic weight loss and you can end up with unwanted sagging upper arm skin.

Dr. Adil Ceydeli, a skilled board-certified plastic surgeon serving Panama City, will be available to discuss the arm lift procedure during a consultation. To arrange an informative arm lift appointment, contact our office.
