This procedure specifically targets loose skin and fat of the upper arm. Although diet and exercise can reduce the size of the upper arm, excess skin cannot be removed, and an arm lift might be indicated.

The procedure will help to reduce excess skin and fat of the upper arm and reshape the arm, resulting in a smoother skin and contour, with a more toned and proportionate appearance. At times liposuction might be used during the same procedure to remove excess fat.

Suitable patients

Ideal candidates should be within reach of their ideal weight, as this is not a weight loss procedure.

This procedure does leave patients with a scar along the whole length of their upper arm, and although this is mostly hidden, it will be visible with normal arm movement, and patients should be aware of this.

Patients undergoing any cosmetic surgery procedure should be healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in their expectations.
Cosmetic surgery must be tailored to each patient, depending on their concerns and their specific anatomy.
