Cosmetic Arm Lift Surgery in Women- Scarring Side Effect of Brachioplasty

Cosmetic arm lift surgery in women has become more popular of late. In fact, it seems that several forms of cosmetic surgery have been increasing in popularity- both among men and women. Once it was only the rich and famous who seemed willing to shell out huge sums of money in order to have the signs of aging disappear. Nowadays, people who could safely be described as middle income are opting for plastic surgery.

Plastic surgery is not exactly a perfect solution to the question, “How can I look a few years younger?” I look at some of my favorite stars on television and some of them can’t even move their faces anymore. Everything between their chin and lower eyelid seems to be frozen into position, for all eternity.

Anyhow, while some of us will shy away from having blades applied to our faces in order to look more beautiful, or handsome, we may not be so shy when it comes to other parts of our bodies. The upper arms are a problem area for most women. When you’re 16 and have the time to do all the exercise you want to and lose weight, life is grand and you wonder what women are complaining about. As you take on responsibilities of work, running a few miles every week seems like a dream. You squeeze in a half hour of exercise daily, if you can. Sometimes it is hard to manage even that.

This has a detrimental effect on the whole body, as the muscles in your upper arm aren’t used as often, they lose some of their tone. It is easier to maintain the biceps. Most women lift their children, the groceries, boxes of paper, pets, plants and many other heavy weights on a daily basis. However those muscles at the back of the arms, they don’t get to work as often and they start to sag.

Cosmetic arm lift surgery is supposed to be a solution to that problem. It is supposed to give you toned upper arms, so you can feel comfortable in a halter top, corset, or spaghetti strap blouse. Even if you don’t have time to do the resistance training that is recommended by Kristoffer Perry, you can look your best.

Liposuction is one of the procedures that may be used to produce toned upper arms. The other surgical procedure is called brachioplasty. A qualified surgeon makes a cut that extends from your armpit to your elbow and they take off all of the extra skin. That cut leaves a long scar that takes about 18 months to go away.

If you are considering this type of surgery, consider the scarring as well. You may be able to get the look you want quickly but you will have a scar to go with it for a while. Six months of focused workouts are cheaper and produce more long lasting results and you won’t have a scar.
