Arm Lift

Home » Body » Arm Lift

An arm lift is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of sagging or loose skin in the upper arms. Dr. Singh offers this to individuals seeking to address excess arm skin caused by factors like weight loss or aging, enhancing their overall arm contours and self-confidence.

Enhance Your Arm Contours

An arm lift is a procedure aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the upper arms. This procedure is sought by individuals bothered by excess skin or fat in their upper arms due to significant weight loss or natural aging. As time passes, skin elasticity decreases, resulting in sagging. Arm lift surgery addresses these concerns by eliminating surplus skin and fat, ultimately enhancing the arm’s contour and achieving a more toned appearance.

During an arm lift, an experienced surgeon makes incisions along the inner or back of the upper arm to remove excess tissue and fat, tightening the remaining skin for a smoother, firmer result. This procedure allows patients to attain improved arm aesthetics, greater confidence, and increased comfort in their clothing choices, making it a popular choice for those seeking to enhance their overall appearance.

Arm Lift FAQs

How is the arm lift procedure performed?

During an arm lift, your plastic surgeon will make incisions, typically on the inner or back of the upper arms, to access the underlying tissues. Excess skin and, if needed, fat are removed, and the remaining skin is carefully re-draped and sutured to create a smoother, more toned look. The incisions are strategically placed to minimize visible scarring.

What is the recovery process like after an arm lift?

Recovery time varies from person to person, but you can generally expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the first few days. Your surgeon will provide specific post-operative instructions, which may include wearing a compression garment to support healing. Most individuals can return to light activities within a week or two, but strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks.

Are there any risks or complications associated with arm lift surgery?

Like any surgical procedure, arm lift surgery carries some risks, including infection, scarring, bleeding, or unfavorable scarring. However, our qualified plastic surgeons can minimize these risks and provide detailed aftercare guidelines to ensure a smooth recovery.

Will there be visible scars after an arm lift?

While scarring is an inherent part of any surgical procedure, our surgeons will try to minimize the visibility of arm lift scars. The incisions are typically placed in discreet locations along the inner arm and will fade over time. Proper wound care and scar management can further help reduce their appearance.

How long do the results of an arm lift last?

The results of an arm lift can be long-lasting, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise to maintain your arm’s appearance. However, natural aging will continue affecting your skin’s elasticity. By following your surgeon’s advice and maintaining a stable weight, you can enjoy the benefits of an arm lift for a decade or more.
