Alternative Names

Sagging skin treatment - triceps

Information

Question:

I have sagging skin under my arms. Is there anything I can do?

Answer:

The muscles on the bottom side of your arms are called the triceps. Try push-ups or any other triceps-building exercise to build these muscles. If this does not work, you may want to talk to your health care provider about cosmetic surgery or laser treatments.
