This problem is often ridiculed in public, with embarrassing nicknames such as “tuck shop arms” and “bingo wings” given. For some, it may seem like no matter how hard you try to diet and exercise there is simply no reversal for the accumulation of loose skin and fat. This problem is particularly common amongst those who have recently lost a significant amount of weight, resulting in the underarm skin still hanging loosely.

If you are one of these people suffering day to day with loose arm skin, then you will be happy to know there is are options available to you. These options include brachioplasty, or ‘arm reduction surgery’, and liposuction of the upper arms.

Our Sydney Plastic Surgeon, Dr Merten, Director of Pure Aesthetics, points out a number of benefits associated with arm reduction surgery. First and foremost, loose underarm skin that seems to hang and wobbles from side to side with each activity you do, will be dramatically improved.

Another excellent benefit associated with brachioplasty is the reduction of bulky fat that may be found in the upper part of the arms. This area of the arm is hard to target with exercise, making it difficult to tone this region of the arm. Liposuction of the upper arm will get help contour this area of upper arm fat for a more shapely appearance.

The best part about brachioplasty is the end result: a more contoured arm shape that appears toned, and that is something anyone would be happy with. A more contoured arm shape means there is no longer fat or loose skin hindering you. Instead, you will be able to wear short-sleeved clothes and be more comfortable with your appearance. Liposuction has virtually no scars, however full arm reduction may involve more significant scars. This will be explained fully at your consultations.

Sydney Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon Dr Merten provides arm reduction surgery that results in a flawless and toned appearance. After the initial consultation and 90 minute surgery with Dr Merten, you will be able to see results after the recovery period of six weeks in which strenuous physical activities may be resumed. With such little recovery time for contoured arms that appear toned, it is an excellent option altogether.
