Many people, unhappy with sagging skin, ask us about arm and thigh lift surgery. If the skin has been stretched beyond its natural limit perhaps due to weight gain, natural growth or pregnancy, stretch marks can appear and if the weight is then lost again, the skin may struggle to shrink back into place and hang in loose folds. Arm and thigh lift surgery can remove this excess skin to leave the area tight and smooth.
Why choose surgery?
- You’ll be able to wear a greater variety of clothes
- Improve the appearance of the skin
- Able to participate in a wider range of activities
About Thigh Lift Surgery
During thigh surgery your surgeon will make an incision around the top of the thigh (near the groin) before pulling the excess skin upwards, stitching it into its new position. The result is smooth thighs that show the results of your weight loss and give you greater confidence.
About Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)
After losing a lot of weight, people sometimes find they have an excess of skin overhanging from their upper arms. This “bat wing” appearance can benefit from surgery to remove the excess skin. Again, the result is smooth arms that show the results of your weight loss and give you greater confidence.
If you are looking for an Arm or Thigh Lift, La Belle Forme is able to offer you a comprehensive service tailored to meet your individual requirements – commencing with an initial consultation with one of our Consultant Plastic Surgeons. The fee your consultation is £50 which can be offset against your surgery should you proceed.
Our consultation does not commit you to surgery but gives you an in-depth understanding of the process and risks involved in Arm or Thigh Lift surgery so you can make an informed decision as to whether surgery is the right choice for you. The initial consultation also allows the consultant to find out about your expectations and make you understand the amount of scarring to be expected because scars on the body do not fade as much as those on the face.
It is also possible to perform liposuction at the same time and sometimes combination treatments produces better results for patients.
