What Is an Arm Lift?
An arm lift is a surgical procedure that addresses excess or sagging skin on the upper arm. During an arm lift, the sagging skin is tightened by removing excess skin and tissue. Small amounts of fat can also be treated using liposuction.
Arm Lift Options
The arm lift procedure is done mainly to target excess skin on the upper arm. Sometimes liposuction can be performed during an arm lift to address excess fat in the area.
In order to perform an arm lift, Dr. Mouchantat must make an incision. Some patients will be able to have an incision placed under the arm, which may be less visible. Other patients will have an incision scar along the upper arm that may show when you wear more revealing clothing.
The Arm Lift Procedure
During an arm lift, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mouchantat will make an incision in the skin of the upper arm or under the arm. He will tighten the skin of the upper arm by lifting the skin until it has a firm, taut appearance. Excess fat may also be removed at this time using liposuction. Any excess skin on the upper arm will be removed, and the incisions will be closed.
Arm Lift Aftercare
After your arm lift procedure, you will need to rest for several days. You will be unable to lift objects or exercise strenuously for a time after your surgery. You should plan to start walking and moving around by the second day.
You will need to follow Dr. Mouchantat’s instructions about how to care for your incisions as they heal. A follow-up visit will be scheduled to have your sutures removed.
