Upper arm lift

Due to the loss of skin’s elasticity and the relaxation of the muscle tissue in the area of the rear arm, as well as in the inner area – changes can be seen in these areas of the body. By removing excess skin and through the process of liposuction, volume reduction can be achieved. Removal of skin is necessary in order to avoid the wrinkling effect of the skin once luposuction was performed and to have an effect of a sufficient tightening of the area.

Usually, the incision is in the area of the upper arm near the armpit, in a oval shape, so that the skin of the upper arm can be tightened and streamlined.

If the whole arm’s volume is to be reduced, very often a further incision is made from the inner part of the arm stemming from the armpit down to behid the albow. This is made so that the desired streamline is achieved.
