An arm lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms to create a firmer, more contoured look. The doctor will make an incision on each side of your arm and remove the excess tissue. The remaining skin will then be pulled together and sutured in place to provide a slimmed, toned appearance. Depending on the extent of the correction needed, liposuction may also be used to further refine the results.
At Victoria Plastic Surgery Center, we want you to be informed about the procedure and what to expect. Generally speaking, an arm lift does not result in significant weight loss. While some patients may lose a few pounds due to the removal of excess skin, this type of surgery is primarily used for aesthetic purposes. The primary benefit of an arm lift is improved contours and shape of your upper arms.
An arm lift typically lasts anywhere from one to three hours depending on the type and complexity of the surgery. After your procedure, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort that should subside within a few days. Results are usually visible within six weeks after treatment, but full results may take several months to become apparent. The results of an arm lift are generally long-lasting with proper care and maintenance.
After an arm lift, there are certain activities to avoid that could disrupt the healing process. You should refrain from strenuous activity and exercise for at least two weeks after your procedure. Additionally, it is important to keep your arms dry and avoid excessive sun exposure to reduce the risk of infection or scarring.
If you have sagging skin on your upper arms, an arm lift may be the best option for you. During this procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the upper arms to create a smoother, more toned appearance. Our surgeons will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs.
