Arm Lift
About The Procedure 

As we age we experience loss of skin elasticity in the upper arm area. In this region, the skin can also lose its adherence to the underlying tissue. This appearance is sometimes referred to as a "loose hammock."

An incision is made along the inner arm where the underlying tissue can best be tightened, but also keeping in mind to hide the incision as best possible. Excess skin and fat are removed. The remaining skin is tightened and sutured into place. The incisions are then bandaged.

An arm lift can be performed under under twilight or general anesthesia. The arms are placed in a special compression garment to help the skin adhere and reduce swelling. Recovery from an arm lift is about 5 - 7 days. Strenuous activity is allowed after 6 weeks.
