Arm-Lift - What is it
Weight loss is often accompanied by corresponding changes in our skin. If stretching of the skin in the arms exceeds certain limits, then exercise alone cannot reverse the situation and an arm-lift might be needed.
When a previously overweight patient returns to the natural weight, the excess skin in the arm remains loose. The solution to this problem is an arm- lift.
Arm- lift is a relatively simple operation which consists of excision of the excess skin and underlying fat and re-approximation of the remaining parts in layers. The incision is designed in the inner part of the arm in order to be as inconspicuous possible.
The procedure can be combined with liposuction.
Postoperative recovery is usually relatively short and smooth. Drains are removed after 1-2 days and the patients returns to their normal activities in 3-4 days.
