The incision length and pattern of your arm lift will depend on the amount of skin being removed. Incisions usually begin either on the inside of the arm or on the back of the arm, and will extend from the underarm to just above the elbow. Once the incision is made, any excess fat will be removed using liposuction.
In certain specific conditions, incisions may be more limited. If excess skin is located within two inches of the armpit, our surgeon can pull up this excess skin into the armpit and tuck it away, a procedure called an axillary Brachioplasty or mini arm tuck. Underlying supportive tissues may also be tightened and reshaped with internal sutures, finishing by smoothing the skin over the new contour of your arm.
