In the last decade, there has been a sharp increase in the number of arm lift surgeries. This recent increase is the biggest area of growth out of all U.S. plastic surgery procedures. In 2012, over 15,000 arm lift procedures were performed, with the numbers suggesting even further increases in this surgery. Fluctuations in weight, aging, and even heredity can cause arms to have a drooping appearance. Exercise may strengthen and improve the muscle tone in arms, but it cannot address skin that has lost elasticity. Even weight loss success can leave upper arms sagging from excess skin.
