Sagging of the upper parts of the arm with aging can be quite uncomfortable, especially in people with skin texture prone to it. Treatment is to remove loose or sagging skin on the upper arms and stretch the muscle tissue. Liposuction can also be combined to the operation when the arm is too thick.
