For Sleeker, More Sculpted Arms

Arm lift surgery is a great way to get rid of excess skin and fat that has accumulated over time in the upper arms. It is a relatively simple procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia with minimal downtime. So, if you’re looking to achieve tighter, more sculpted arms, this may be the procedure for you!

Types Of Arm Lift Surgery

More and more people opt for surgery to achieve a sleeker, more toned look in their arms. The surgery is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms, resulting in a more toned appearance. While it is not a new procedure, it has become increasingly popular in recent years as people strive to achieve the perfect body image.

There are three types of arm lift surgeries: the mini arm lift, the standard arm lift, and the extended arm lift.

  • Mini Arm Lift

    The mini arm lift is a shorter surgery used to address mild to moderate sagging in the arms. It is a good option for people who are not overweight and have minimal excess skin.

  • Standard Arm Lift

    The standard arm lift is a more extensive surgery used to address moderate to severe sagging in the arms. This surgery is recommended for people who are overweight or have a lot of excess skin.

  • Extended Arm Lift

    The extended arm lift is a more extensive surgery used to address severe sagging in the arms. This surgery is recommended for people who are very overweight or have a lot of excess skin.

How Arm Lift Surgery Is Done

All arm lift surgeries can be done under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. The surgery typically lasts between one and three hours, depending on the type of arm lift performed. The incisions are made in inconspicuous places along the length of the arm to minimize scar visibility. Excess skin is removed, and tissue tightening restores a smoother appearance to the arms.

As with most surgical procedures, there are some risks and possible side effects associated with the procedure. Risks include infections, swelling, bleeding, blood clots, scarring, loss of feeling in the areas near or around the incisions and nerve damage that causes numbness in the areas near or around the incisions. Results of the surgery are not immediate since the final shape will only be achieved after the scar tissue has healed. However, the surgery can dramatically improve tone and texture in sagging arms, offering a more toned look free of loose skin.

Why People Want Arm Lift Surgery

There are many reasons why people might want to give their arms a more toned looked. People who have arms that are saggy or floppy due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy may be great candidates for arm lift surgery. The procedure can help these people achieve a sleeker, more toned look.

Benefits Of Arm Lift Surgery

When it comes to body contouring procedures, an arm lift is one of the most popular options. This procedure can help you achieve a sleeker, more toned look by removing excess skin and fat from the arms. Here are some of the benefits of the surgery:

  • Improved Comfort

    Excess skin and fat on the arms can be difficult to manage and lead to discomfort and chafing. This procedure can help resolve these issues.

  • Better Clothing Fit

    Excess skin on the arms can make it difficult to find clothes that fit well, but the surgery can help eliminate this problem.

  • Increased Confidence

    Surgery can help you feel more confident about your appearance, boosting your overall self-esteem.

Recovery From Arm Lift Surgery

The most common complication following arm lift surgery is skin discoloration. Darker skin tones are at a higher risk of developing dark patches post-surgery due to either excess skin pigment or marbling from the liposuction process. To prevent this complication, it is important to carefully follow your doctor’s instructions.

Post-surgery, you can expect some discomfort, bruising, and swelling in the affected area. You will also experience some postoperative numbness. However, this generally disappears after a few months.
