THE PROCEDURE

Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. An anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia, which is recommended for this procedure. Smaller lifts can be done with IV sedation.

Achieving excellent results with an arm lift requires the surgeon to have significant skill and experience. The appropriate technique for you will be determined based on:

  • Arm size and shape
  • Skin quality and elasticity as well as the amount of extra skin
  • The degree of arm sagging

The procedure typically takes 1.5-2 hours depending on the individual and certain surgical variables.

There are four basic steps to an arm lift.

Step 1 – Marking

While you are standing, Dr. Alexander makes careful measurements and markings on the arms. This is arguably the most important part of the procedure, and requires skill, patience, experience, and a good eye for symmetry and detail so that the incisions will be precisely placed.

Step 2 – The incisions

Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. Incisions are generally placed on the inside-back of the arm, and may extend from the underarm (axilla) to just above the elbow. If fat is to be reduced during your arm lift, it will either be excised directly with the skin or removed with liposuction. Depending on your specific conditions, incisions may be more limited.

Step 3 – Removing excess tissue

Excess fat and skin is removed, all the way down to the muscle. Then, underlying supportive tissue is tightened and reshaped with internal sutures.

Step 4 - Closing the incisions

The skin is smoothed over the new contour of your arm. Your incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures, and stitches that will be removed within 1-2 weeks following your arm lift. Incision lines are permanent, but in most cases will fade and significantly improve over time.
