Things To Know Before Your Arm Lift Surgery

What happens when you look in the mirror and all you notice are sagging arms? For many people sagging arm skin keeps them from enjoying life. They do not feel comfortable wearing T-shirts let alone tank tops on hot days. They shy away from activities that would expose their arms like swimming or being intimate with a partner and worst of all, their self-esteem is in shambles.
