What Is an Arm Lift?
Who Is a Good Candidate?
- A good candidate has excess hanging skin and fat along the arm that despite diet and exercise they cannot get rid of.
- You should be at or close to your ideal weight, with a BMI less than 35.
- The best candidates are non-smokers. Smoking increases the chance of complications including impairment in wound healing.
- Arm lift is performed on an outpatient basis at a hospital or local surgery center, under general anesthesia.
- Dr. Gupta will begin by making an incision on the inside of the upper arm or the back of the arm; depending on the degree of correction necessary, the incision may extend from the armpit to the elbow. Through the incision, Dr. Gupta will use liposuction techniques to remove excess fat. Dr. Gupta will re-drape the arm skin over the new contour of the arm and stitch the incisions together with sutures. He will place a supportive garment that applies compression to the arm for you to continue to wear during your recovery.

Your arms will be much slimmer immediately after surgery. There will be residual swelling in the tissue which takes 2-3 months to diminish.
Breast procedures, such as breast lift, breast reduction or breast augmentation, are the most common procedures combined with arm lifts.
