As we get on in years, arms and thighs are more sensitive to gravity and sometimes they show signs of ageing before they should. The loss of collagen and elastin causes the skin to sag and gives you an aged appearance.
Arm lifting is a surgical procedure intended to improve the form and smoothness of the arms, generally to elevate the sagging tissue and skin. This surgical procedure restore the saggy skin and removes fatty deposits.
