For some, decreased levels of collagen and elastin are the main culprit behind saggy arms. Others are unable to get rid of arm flab because of weight gain.
Liposuction is an excellent choice for those with minimal skin laxity when excess fat localized to the upper arm area is resistant to diet and exercise.
However, for those with little excess fat and mild to moderate skin laxity, a skin-tightening technology like Thermage is more appropriate. It targets collagen production and tends to work better on younger patients before collagen levels diminish too much.
When there is a lot of excess skin, especially after weight loss, an arm lift (brachioplasty), which unavoidably results in a scar along the inner part of the upper arm, may be more suitable.
