There are three types of arm lifts available at Spectrum Plastic Surgery. All arm lifts are designed to remove excess skin and mass from the upper arm, which is common after weight fluctuations or due to age and genetics. The traditional arm lift requires an incision from the armpit to the elbow. Modifications include a more conservative arm lift that does not extend to the elbow and might be suitable for patients with lax skin exclusively in the upper region of the arm, near the axilla.
An extended arm lift requires an incision from the elbow past the armpit and to the side of the chest. Using the Vectra 3D Imaging System, your Spectrum Plastic Surgery medical team can show you exactly what to expect after an arm lift using a simulation of your own body. Because individual results may vary, we invite you to learn more about your arm lift options and schedule your consultation today.
