Arm Lift

Arm-LiftDue to the natural ageing process, skin on the upper arms may become loose and flabby as a result of loss of elasticity. Additionally substantial weight loss may be another cause of excess loose skin to this area (also referred to as bingo wings). Often such sagging skin cannot be improved by regular exercise or healthy diet alone, and may cause embarrassment resulting in long tops being worn to cover up the problem area. An arm lift can help to restore the area by giving younger looking skin with a firmer and more youthful appearance.

WHAT TO EXPECT

This procedure is normally carried out under a general anaesthetic and will require a 1 night stay in hospital. Incisions are made along the upper arm and under surfaces of the arm, which may be from the armpit to the elbow. The excess skin is separated from the muscle and fat, and then stitched back together. After this procedure, the operated areas will feel swollen and tight for 2-3 weeks, so time from work and for recuperation will be required. Liposuction maybe be used in conjunction with this treatment.
