Arm Lift is a surgery to remove excess skin and fat from your upper arm can be done with several different incisions. At Evolution MD one of our Doctors will take time to talk with you about which arm lift technique is best for you, and answer all your questions about the procedure and your recovery.
Depending on the amount and location of your excess skin, the Surgeon may make an incision along the inside of your arm or along the back of your arm. This incision may extend from your underarm to just above your elbow, or somewhere in between.
With the incision made the doctor will cut away excess fat or remove it with liposuction. The supporting tissue inside your arm will be tightened and reshaped, and your skin will be smoothed over your arm’s new contour and the excess skin will be removed.
At Evolution MD one of our Doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for your incision as it heals. This may include an elastic bandage around your arm to minimize swelling, and medications to help relieve pain and avoid infection. Most people recover from arm lift surgery in about two weeks approximately.
