Sagging upper arms

Sagging upper arms are caused by a loss of skin elasticity, which can be caused by weight gain, weight loss or muscle loss. There are many ways to treat sagging upper arms, including muscle toning, skin tightening or even plastic surgery.

What causes loose, flabby arms?

The changes of the connective tissue of the upper arms depend on the aging process and also personal features. Since our mid-twenties the amount of collagen-, elastin- and hyaluronic acid decreases – these molecules have an important rule in keeping the skin even, firm and soft. Eventually this natural aging process is also responsible for developing loose, saggy skin all over the body – even on our face and arms.

Genetic factors, poor diet choices, sedentary lifestyle, hormonal changes and significant weight-fluctuation also have a major role in the regenerational mechanism and how the skin can preserve and restore its tightness, elasticity and quality.

Under the skin surface, muscle- and adipose tissue provide the firmness of the superficial layers. Significant weight fluctuation destroys the skin quality and ruins its construction completely. As a result of weight loss the fat cells decrease, but the size of the affected skin part remains the same. If this slimming process takes place in a very short time, then the elastic compartments of the skin cannot adapt properly to the change. The “adipose tissue base” disappears, therefore the upper layers lose their tightness and become saggy and hanging. It’s one of the most common aesthetic problems after huge weight loss.

We cannot avoid the natural aging process of our skin but fortunately there are procedures which help us delay the progress. Building a good skin-care routine, having a healthy lifestyle and doing workout regularly is really important and with the combination of well-timed, adequate professional treatment the first signs of aging can be held back and slowed down.

What can we do about flabby arms?

Morpheus8 microneedle radiofrequency - Skin tightening

A fractional radiofrequency microneedling is an excellent way of tightening the loose, saggy skin parts of the arms and also of reducing the unwanted fat pockets. The radiated thermal energy makes the skin contract and tighten up while an intense regenerational process is triggered. New collagen and elastin production makes the skin firmer, tighter and glowier while strengthening the skin texture and improving the appearance and contours of the arms.

Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction

Flabby arms can be successfully fixed by radiofrequency assisted liposuction, when our professionals can precisely and permanently get rid of the excess subcutaneous fat storages. During the treatment the emitted high thermal energy makes the connective tissue contract and as a consequence simultaneously dissolve fat and induce collagen- and elastin production in a single treatment. The technique promotes the regeneration process while making the treated area appear firmer and more toned. While tightening the skin surface and restoring its’ elasticity, it can be applied to multiple, larger body areas like the abdomen, glutes, legs (thighs, knees) and arms and even the under chin.
