Upper Arm Lift :: Cosmetic surgery to enhance droopy n unattractive skin of arms

Over time, gravity gets the best of all of us. Skin that becomes droopy and unattractive can be enhanced through a series of lifts. Lifts can be utilized on most areas of the body from head to toe.

Arm, thigh and face are the most common areas while buttocks lifts are growing in popularity. Lifts are also beneficial to stomach-staple patients who lose a large amount of weight and are looking to remove the excess skin that many patients develop.

Liposuction can be used in place of an arm lift in special instances where there is excess fat but the skin is still tight.

If the skin is loose, however, the only method for correction is the arm lift.

The drawback to the lift procedure is the noticeable scarring. Scarring therefore is the trade-off. Many people find that they prefer the scarring over the excess tissue and also find that the scarring can fade over time.

Normal activity can be resumed within 7 – 10 days. No lifting should be performed for the first 3 – 5 days and no heavy lifting for 2 weeks. Swelling is typical and there may be some mild to moderate discomfort over the first few days. Medication may be prescribed as needed.
