As we get older, our skin naturally begins to lose critical compounds we need to help our bodies stay fresh, healthy, and young-looking. This can cause the arms to sag, making the arm lift a great solution.
Your Arm Lift Experience
During an arm lift, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Burton Sundin or Dr. Reps Sundin will remove excess fat and skin from your upper arm to create a more proportionate, toned, and smooth look. The procedure is generally performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia and involves an incision on the underside or back of your arm, between the armpit and the elbow. The specific location and length of the incision will depend on how much correction your surgical plan requires. Dr. Sundin will first perform a liposuction procedure to gently disrupt and remove the fat, before trimming away excess skin. The musculature of your arm will then be restructured and tightened with internal sutures to create a smooth, taut appearance before Dr. Sundin closes the incision with layered, absorbable sutures, clips, and surgical tape.
