What is an arm lift? It’s another name that is provided for an arm reduction surgery. It tends to be a form of surgery that’s quite significant for patients who enjoy wearing low cut dresses. It involves the process of contouring the arms around the elbow and exilit. This is the most common area where arm reduction surgery takes place. In the next video of your vlog series, we provide more information of what is an arm lift and how it is conducted.
The surgery can involve several procedures in order to get the results you’re expecting. This can involve liposuction that can reduce the volume as well as excisional surgery to remove excess skin. However, some patients who have good quality skin may only require liposuction surgery. This is shown in the case study provided where a patient has only required liposuction surgery. The comparison of the pre-op and post-op pictures show a major improvement in the appearance of the patients’ arm in the front and back of the arms.
If a patient is not so lucky to have good quality skin due to weight loss or from ageing over the years, for example, patients may require arm lifting in combination with excisional surgery. A different case study is shown which emphasises the improvements that can be made from this type of surgical procedure.
