Let’s read what it is…

What is an Arm Lift?

You probably are familiar with the idea of a liposuction surgery. It’s an amazing way to eliminate unwanted fat and tone underlying muscles of the body.

Arm lift surgery is a correction of lax skin in arms or very fatty arms. The surgery involves a liposuction combined with an arm lift to get necessary changes. The surgery is done under general anaesthesia. Garments that hold the operated arm tight should be used after the procedure for 2 to 3 months. Recovery after the surgery includes edema and bruising which usually subsides in 7-10 days. Some people will have residual fragile suture line into the inner surface (invisible) area of the arm and under the arm.

Here we will look into the possible conditions that bring in the need for an arm lift surgery. An arm lift surgery might probably cause you a light scar at the bottom of your arm. You must also be ready to manage the surgical scar…
