ArmLift: Say Goodbye to Bat Wings and Hello to Confidence

July 31, 2017

Arm Lift TorontoYou know that feeling? Where you go to reach for something, or wave goodbye to someone and suddenly you are horrified because you realize your bat wings are on full display? Bat wings, that sagging skin and arm fat that hangs off your upper arm when you lift it, plague many women.

Trying on dresses and tops isn’t as fun, as you check out how your bat wings look in the shirt and often opt for another piece of clothing that better conceals the offending area. In the summer you may feel uncomfortable in tank tops and bathing suits and suffer from the heat in clothes that hide your arms.

Bat wings have been a source of frustration and embarrassment for women for years. They can make you ashamed, shy, frustrated and angry.

Feeling shame about any areas of your body is not something anyone should ever have to deal with.

There are various solutions for the fat and sagging skin. You could exercise and alter diet to help create weight loss. Although you can’t target weight loss in specific areas, so it may take a while to create a noticeable difference in the upper arm area.

Alternatively, you can take control of your body and choose to have a procedure called Brachioplasty (also known as an arm lift).

Brachioplasty removes excess skin and soft tissue, as well as fat from the upper arm.  Your upper arm begins at your elbow and goes to the axilla or armpit.

As with any procedure, there may be scaring, however laser treatments help minimize them – in many cases they are hardly noticeable at all.

The upside is increased confidence, the ability to feel comfortable in clothes you may not have in the past and most importantly the knowledge that you took control and did what you needed to, in order to look and feel your best.

Explore your options, you have nothing to lose. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Mulholland today.
