Who Can Benefit From An Arm Lift?

The skin on the upper arms may begin to sag due to age, genetics, or significant weight loss. If you are unhappy with sagging skin on your upper arms and no amount of exercise seems to help, you may make a good candidate for arm lift surgery.

Surgery Takes About Two Hours

  • When you arrive for the outpatient procedure, you will be comfortably settled in a surgical suite and provided with the sedation discussed prior to your procedure.
  • We will mark the outline of the surgical sites before beginning.
  • Next, we will make an incision based on the type of arm lift you are receiving. An upper arm lift requires an incision on the underside of the arm from the underarm to the elbow. Mini arm lifts use a smaller incision, typically in the armpit.
  • During the procedure, we will remove skin and fat. We use careful techniques to minimize any scarring.
  • Often, we will also perform liposuction to accentuate patients' results.
  • Once the incisions are closed, you will be transferred to a recovery room until you are ready to be escorted home by a friend or family member.

A Safe And Effective Treatment

Recovery And Results

Following an arm lift Pittsburgh patients typically experience bruising and swelling. Before the procedure, we will provide you with post-operative instructions such as taking pain medication as prescribed, changing bandages and keeping the treatment area clean, wearing a compression bandage, and eating a healthy diet. Refrain from exercise and work for about two weeks, and do not do any heavy lifting. A one-week check-up appointment will be scheduled so we can check the surgical site and answer any of your questions about recovery and results. In many cases, patients immediately notice changes in their appearance, but the final effects should become evident about two to three months after your procedure. If you maintain a stable weight, the results of your arm lift could last for decades.*
