Benefits of an Arm Lift
- Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
- Tightens and smooths the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
- Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region
Incision length and pattern during arm lift surgery depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. Incisions are generally placed on the inside of the arm or on the back of the arm and may extend from the underarm to just above the elbow. Excess fat may be directly excised or treated with liposuction. Depending on your specific condition, incisions may be more limited. Then, underlying supportive tissue is tightened and reshaped with internal sutures. Finally, the skin is smoothed over the new contour of your arm.
