The Arm Lift Procedure
The procedure is performed in our fully certified and accredited office operating facility. The procedure is specifically designed to remove the excess or loose skin of the upper arms. The incision is determined by the exact amount and location of your loose skin.
Most commonly, Dr. Schulman begins the procedure by creating an incision from the underarm area and along the underside of the arm to the elbow. Then, he removes the excess skin, creating a smoother appearance. Liposuction may also be performed to help achieve a shapely contour. The scar will be along the inner aspect of the arm and is well hidden when the arms are relaxed at the sides.
In some situations of severe excess skin, such as after massive weight loss, the skin removal may extend within the armpit area, and even along the side of the chest. If you only have a small amount of excess skin along the upper part of your arm, you may be a candidate for a less invasive, mini arm lift.
