Arm Lift

Tightens skin and removes excess fat from the triceps (back) region of the upper arm. For men and women who are self-conscious about a sagging upper arm, this procedure is effective.


About the Procedure

This procedure is performed in our outpatient surgery center under general anesthetic. It generally involves an incision along the inner side of the upper arm that allows for the removal of excess skin and fatty tissue. The extent of the incision can be modified depending on your personal desired results.

Time of Procedure

This procedure takes one hour with another hour of recovery time before going home.

Recovery Time

Swelling and bruising may last up to three weeks. Return to work can be expected within 5 to 7 days. Full results are expected within 9 to 12 months.

Typical Results

A tighter, slimmer, more contoured upper arm. Results may vary. With a consult, our doctor will give you a more realistic expectation of your personal outcome.
