What You Didn’t Know About an Arm Lift

As we age, exercise and eating healthy can’t fix all of our problems anymore. Our skin elasticity isn’t the same as it once was, and that’s why many turn to cosmetic surgery. The arms can be a target spot of accumulating fat and loose skin for many. Dr. Roussalis offers an arm lift procedure to help reduce the fat and give you the toned arms you once had.

How The Procedure is Performed

Every patient’s procedure is different based on their condition and the amount of skin and fat the surgeon is targeting. This determines the incision site for each patient, which can be made along the inside or outside of the arm, as well as around the armpit. Liposuction will be used to reduce the fat in the arm, and the arm tissue is tightened and reshaped. Results can be seen immediately after surgery, and sutures can be removed one to two weeks after.
