Why have an arm lift?
As we age, the skin on the upper arms loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Significant weight loss can also cause droopy upper arms. Exercise can strengthen the upper arms and improve muscle tone, but it cannot correct loose, sagging skin.
How long will results last after an arm lift
Results of arm lift surgery are long-lasting. However, the normal aging process will continue and could result in some changes. Your results could also be affected if you gain or lose a significant amount of weight.
How painful is arm lift surgery?
All surgical body contouring procedures involve some discomfort. Most patients only require prescription pain medications for the first few days after an arm lift and report that pain and discomfort are tolerable.
