Arm Lift

Get Ready To Show Off Your Arms Again


Changes in weight, natural aging and heredity can all be responsible for drooping and sagging in the upper arms. Referred to as “bat wings” there’s only so much that exercise can do. Even people with respectable muscle tone can have excess skin that has lost elasticity along with weakened tissue and localized fat deposits. Arm contouring surgery reduces the excess skin and reshapes the arm for smoother contours that allow your arms to look toned and proportioned.

We want all our patients to be aware that this is one surgery that leaves a visible scar. There’s just no natural fold to hide it. The incision length and pattern depends on the amount and the location of excess skin that needs to be removed. The incision is made on the inside or the back of the upper arm, and sometimes in the armpit. The results of arm lift surgery will be long lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness, but most of your improvement should be relatively permanent.

Sometimes in order to achieve your desired look, surgery is the best option. Our affiliation with the board-certified plastic surgeons at Kevitch, Chung & Jan gives you access to a full range of surgical solutions.
