Aging or weight loss has possibly left you with excess, unwanted skin on your upper arms. By performing an arm lift, I can tighten the skin of the upper arm for better definition and tone. In some cases, an arm lift can even increase comfort when excess skin is causing chafing or irritation.

Is an Arm Lift Right for Me?
Not every person who is unhappy with the look of their upper arms needs arm lift surgery. In some cases, liposuction alone may be enough to improve definition and enhance existing muscle tone, although liposuction will not address loose skin.
Men and women also may choose an arm lift as part of body contouring following weight loss. People who have already achieved their target weight and have maintained it steadily for several months or more often want to have a few plastic surgery procedures to remove excess skin and tone and tighten certain areas of the body, including the arms, thighs, hips and abdomen.
Arm Lift Procedure
If you are considering an arm lift, you must understand that the procedure trades the excess, loose skin for an improved, toned arm – at the cost of a visible scar. I am careful to place incisions along the inner arm where they will be best hidden and use meticulous technique to ensure that you have the best possible scar.
Through the incision, I am able to sculpt the upper arm by removing excess skin and tissue. In many cases, I will incorporate liposuction to fine-tune the upper arm definition and contours. I am careful to take an approach that’s conservative enough for natural-looking results, yet effective enough to help you reach your cosmetic goals.
Arm Lift Surgery Recovery
After surgery, it’s important to protect your incisions and refrain from lifting motions. I encourage patients to sleep with their arms elevated for about a week to help minimize any discomfort and reduce swelling. Most of my arm lift patients are back to work and regular daily activities within two or three weeks, but lifting anything heavy (including your children) should be avoided for at least six weeks.
