Arm Lift

As a result of aging or excessive weight loss, under portion of the upper arms may sag. This kind of sagging is generally more severe if the individual does not exercise regularly. Arm lift surgery can remove this excess tissue and create a more toned look.

Since the surgery leaves scars of different length depending on the severity of the deformity, the individuals should first try physical exercise and radio frequency or ultrasound skin tightening methods. Arm lift surgery is recommended as the last solution if these options are not enough for the patient to improve the sagging arms.

Arm lift surgery involves local or general anaesthesia. After the surgery, an elastic bandage should be used. The patient does not need to stay in the hospital after the surgery and the healing period is short. Patients can return to daily activities within a few days, but they should avoid strenuous physical exercises for 6 weeks after the surgery.
