What is an Arm Lift?
An arm lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure which improves the shape and appearance of the underside of your upper arms.
The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the area of the arm between the elbow and armpit, thus achieving a tighter, more toned upper arm.
Am I the right candidate for an Arm Lift?
As you age, you will start to experience some sagging and laxity in the skin around your upper arm. You may also notice some loose skin around this area as a side effect of any substantial weight loss.
In both of these instances, you may find that an Arm Lift is an ideal procedure to restore your arms to a tighter, more youthful appearance and improve your self-esteem.
How does an Arm Lift work?
During the Arm Lift procedure your surgeon will make incisions on the underside of your upper arm, the length of which will be dependent on the amount of excess skin being removed.
Once the incisions have been made, your surgeon will tighten the underlying tissues before securing them with stitches. Sometimes liposuction may be necessary in order to remove any excess fat.
The skin is then draped over the new contours before the incisions are closed with stitches or surgical tape.
