Arm Lift in Toronto, Markham, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Ontario
Am I a candidate for an Arm Lift?
Many women and men who have flabby or sagging skin folds have them because of weight loss. Even though weight loss offers several advantages, one major disadvantage is sagging skin that may hang from arms and other body parts after significant weight loss. Not only is hanging skin on the arm unattractive, it also allows for inability to fit into sleeved shirts or wear sleeveless ones with enough confidence. There is also the problem of irritation and rashes on the underarm skin. An arm lift in Toronto can help give you the firm youthful arms you once had. Dr. Plant has been performing arm lift surgery to Ontario patients at his Toronto and Orillia offices. Many arm lift patients from Toronto and the surrounding areas of Markham and Vaughan trust Dr. Plant to perform their surgery because of his personal approach and innovative surgical procedures.
