A strong, rapid weight loss can also reduce the elasticity of the skin. Lack of exercise, weakly developed body muscles and an age-related decrease in muscle mass intensify this effect. Excess skin and subcutaneous tissue appear on the inner sides of the upper arms, among other places. In this case, no liposuction alone will help, as the skin would no longer become firm due to the lack of elasticity. The result is the so-called “angled arms” or “Batman wings”.
An upper arm lift is a modern, safe procedure to remove excess tissue and adjust the upper arm contour to the desired body image, thus improving the appearance.
