Arm Lift is the appropriate procedure to deal with skin loosening that often occurs in the area of the arm due to advanced age or weight loss.
Arm Lift is usually done under general anesthesia. The patient usually stays in the hospital for one night.
Usually, in a classic Arm Lift, excess skin is removed from the axillary area to the elbow. The incision extends along the inner surface of the arm from the axilla to the elbow. The length of the incision will depend on the degree of excess skin. This surgery gives an excellent result in the shape of the arm, leaving a scar that will take about twelve months to the final result.
In a mini Arm Lift, the incision is limited to the axilla.
Depending on the case, the procedure lasts 2-2.5 hours
Concluding, the patient should not underestimate the dangers of an Arm Lift and realize that it is a relatively simple surgery that may have complications.
Complications in plastic surgery operations are not common but it is necessary to be aware of them at the first appointment.
