With arm lift, the surgeon removes excess skin from the arms (from the shoulder to the elbow). Thus, the sagging arm, caused by aging or weight loss, is treated.
The common incision of arm lift extends from axilla to the elbow. It is usually located on the interior surface of the arm, so as not to be easily visible. Through this incision, excess skin and fat is removed.
The surgery takes about two hours. The patient leaves the clinic few hours after surgery.
