Arm lift surgery is designed to remove your unwanted fat and loose skin. If you have lost a substantial amount of weight, this procedure is a great way to reveal your new contour.
At the time of your initial consultation, you will sit down with Dr. Lyons to discuss why you are interested in surgery. The details of your arm lift surgery will be explained thoroughly.
Dr. Lyons will take the time to listen, and all of your questions will be answered before you leave.
Arm lift incisions can be made along your inner arm, from your elbow up to your armpit. Your incision lines may extend past your armpit. Dr. Lyons will place your incisions strategically so they will be concealed as much as possible.
The location and length of your incision lines will be determined by Dr. Lyons according to your unique surgical requirements.
Once the incisions are made, your excess skin will be surgically removed. In many cases, liposuction is used for arm lift surgery to reveal the arm’s natural slender shape.
Arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1 to 4 hours to complete. You will be comfortable and asleep during your surgery.
Take at least 2 to 3 weeks off work for recovery.
Every patient’s recovery from arm lift surgery is unique. You may heal faster than others, however, it’s a good idea to take a few extra days off work to rest and heal.
You can expect to feel swollen and sore after surgery. These symptoms are normal and will disappear within a few weeks. Dr. Lyons will give you very detailed post operative care instructions to follow during your recovery.
Arm lift surgery can be combined with other surgical procedures such as tummy tuck or breast implant surgery. If you are interested in combination surgery, please let us know when you call to reserve your consultation.
