What is an arm lift?
Why would you want an arm lift?
People can fluctuate in weight throughout their life and simply gain weight due to age or heredity. The upper arms can start to have a drooping appearance because of this. The loose skin and fat harshly affects how people perceive themselves, and their confidence and self esteem may truly suffer no matter how healthy their diets are or how much they exercise. This condition may not be corrected any other way.
Who are the best candidates for an arm lift?
Ideal candidates are adults who have elasticity to their excess upper arm skin to achieve the tightness of the procedure’s objective, and have maintained a relatively stable weight. They should be in good health and have no medical conditions that can impair the healing process or put them at risk during the surgery. It is very important for the candidate to have a positive outlook with realistic expectations.
What can you expect for recovery after an arm lift procedure?
Patients can usually return to work within 2 weeks depending on the healing process. Bandages will be applied over your incisions, and your arm will be put in an elastic wrap to minimize the swelling.
