We are on the edge of summer fun but your trip to the bikini shop may leave you feeling disgusted with the unsightly flab of loose skin hanging from your arms. Women find it almost impossible to wear sleeveless or strapless dresses, and even men feel unconfident to wear tank tops or go shirtless at the beach because of saggy and unattractive arms. Fortunately, there is a solution to help eliminate the flab with an arm lift in Boston.
Bat Wings Lift Off
The lingering layers make matters ultimately worse now that summer is upon us. That upper arm skin which seems to hang like bat wings every time you go to lift or spread your arms out wide. Many patients who reach their weight loss goal still deal with the embarrassing arm jiggle every time they wave or shake someone’s hand. The first line of defense is in proper diet control and strength training routines that focus on toning and shrinking skin. There are a few arm sculpting exercises that burn fat more than others with lightweight dumbbells or resistance cables, some of the best include:
The key is to keep the arms isolated and avoid adding on bulky muscle. The younger the body and the fewer times they have dealt with significant weight change is the better chance the patient has in toning and shaping their arms with exercise.
What Should My Diet Look Like?
Remember it is important not to lose muscle tone but instead focus on eliminating the excess weight, and with the right food you can achieve just that. A daily caloric intake should be 500 to 1,000 calories less than what is normally consumed to help shed 1 to 2 pounds per week. Replace high-calorie food with low-calorie meals and consume only:
Fruit and vegetables
Strength behind an Arm Lift
Brachioplasty is a procedure known by many as the arm lift, which reduces sagging and loose skin in the upper arms that do not respond well to other lifestyle measures. In conjunction with liposuction, this procedure leaves minimal scarring and is hidden perfectly along skin folds – perfect for you to enjoy summer in a bikini or sleeveless attire.
Over 15,700 arm lift surgeries were performed last year, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. There are a number of reasons why we have excess weight in the upper arm region, and when there is no other weight loss option or exercise to effectively tighten and smoothly shape your arms then the arm lift is your best solution. Contact our office in Wellesley, just 25 minutes outside of Boston and schedule consultation for an arm lift.
