We’ve all heard the term and maybe even snickered about it a little. But it’s not so funny when it’s your arms that have morphed into the flabby, unflattering upper arm condition commonly referred to as “lunch lady” arms. Losing muscle tone as we age is common and natural, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept it as irreversible.
Your plastic surgeon has an answer: A procedure known as an arm lift will get rid of lunch lady arms (along with the self-conscious feeling that often accompanies them). Whether your “lunch lady” arms are the result of age, heredity, losing weight or any other reason, an arm lift can restore tone and shape to the appearance of your arms.
An arm lift or brachioplasty, is a surgery where the surgeon removes excess fat and skin from your upper arms and tightens the underlying tissue to restore a more toned-looking appearance to your upper arm area. Since an arm lift is a surgical procedure, your surgeon will want to know you’re in generally good health, and may require certain test results before proceeding.
The Amazing Results
But the results of arm lift surgery are immediately noticeable even right after the procedure, although there might be some swelling and bruising initially. But once your incisions have healed and the bruises fade away, it’s bye-bye lunch lady arms!
