Arm Lift Procedure

An arm lift is a surgical procedure which will see the surgeon make an incision into the arm area using a surgical blade before removing excess fat and skin. The skin is then tightened to create a more contoured appearance. The surgeon will then proceed to restitch the incision area.

This procedure is done under sedation, on a day basis and typically takes a couple of hours to complete. Following the surgery you will be taken into our onsite recovery room where you will be monitored by our Nurse and allowed to rest before being free to go home on the same day.
