I am 61 and have approximately 2” of hanging fat and skin on my upper arm as well as crepe skin. I do not expect perfect young arms but wish to have arms that have some shape and fitness instead of looking like they are something other than arms hanging off of a 90 year old. I am 5’3” and weigh 118”.
Because I live in a remote area, I know I must fly for a consult and don’t want arm scars.
we need to see you in person to tell you you can be fixed with minimai scars
i recomend you to visit a plastic surgeon board certified to fix you re
You may be a candidate, however a personal exam is required to determine if your skin quality is elastic enough to give you a good result. If the issue is excess skin, not fat, a scar will be involved. It is the extent of scaring that varies from patient to patient. Find a board Certified plastic surgeon. Best wishes!
The type of arm reduction and subsequent length of the scars is directly related to the amount of excess tissue to be removed to achieve your goal. You will need to be examined to determine this.
Thank you for your question. The best way to find what options you have is to be evaluated by a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in your area. It is difficult to say what is best for your particular body without examining you. If you would like to visit my office in Houston, we would be happy to give you the best surgical plan for you.
Thank you for sharing your excellent question. Unfortunately without photographs or an in-person examination it is difficult to offer advice on the appropriate treatment. With nearly all aesthetic procedures, a patient's scar length will be directly proportional to the degree of skin excess. Hope this helps.
It's very hard to evaluate you without pictures or and in person examination. Best advice is to obtain a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. They can examine you, then discuss options to try to improve the contour of your arms.
