Mini Arm Lift: Shorter Procedure, Faster Recovery Time.
Are you self-conscious about your upper arms? Do you avoid wearing short sleeves or other clothing due to having saggy upper arms? You may be a candidate for a mini arm lift. This treatment involves shorter incisions and a faster recovery time. The incision is within the armpit, invisible once healed. What’s right for you? Meet with us so we can evaluate what will be the best way to restore a youthful, firm look to your upper arms.
Full Arm Lift: A Comprehensive Fix.
For some patients, a full arm lift is necessary. In cases of extreme skin laxity, fatty deposits, and significant sagging, the procedure will involve restructuring the entire upper arm area, with an incision running along the underside of your arm, from armpit to elbow. This treatment leaves a scar on the underside of your arm, which fades over time to a thin white line. Our patients tell us the procedure was well worth it. After the surgery, they love their new look!
How Long is the Recovery After an Arm Lift?
Your arm lift will be performed on an outpatient basis with minimal downtime. Some patients will need to spend a night in the hospital. During healing you may experience minor bleeding, swelling, and bruising. The stitches are removed one to two weeks after your surgery.
A small tube may be placed under your skin to help drain any excess blood or fluids. You will have medications to keep you comfortable and speed the healing process. You should notice immediate results from an arm lift procedure that, as the swelling diminishes, becomes more attractive day by day. Imagine wearing a swimsuit or sleeveless clothing with total confidence!
