Am I a good candidate for excisional arm lipectomy? Upper Arm - Excess Skin

You may be a good candidate for excisional arm lipectomy if you have one or more of the following conditions:

  • excess or sagging upper arm skin

  • an upper arm that protrudes and is out of proportion to the rest of your body

  • arm muscles that have been separated and weakened by age, weight loss or gain and pregnancy

  • excess fatty tissue that is concentrated in your upper arm skin

If you plan to become pregnant or lose weight in the future, you should discuss this with your plastic surgeon. Scarring from previous arm surgery may limit the results of your excisional arm lipectomy.
