Arm Lift Plastic Surgery in Miami, Florida
If you have unsightly sagging skin on the upper arms due to aging, genetics or weight loss, you may be a candidate for an upper Arm Lift. The procedure is intended to reduce excess skin from the upper arms.
The procedure is usually done under general anesthesia. In order to remove the unwanted skin, an incision that runs from near the elbow into the armpit is required. The incision is placed in the most inconspicuous location, but some scarring will be visible.
After surgery, the upper arms are either wrapped or placed in an elastic sleeve to reduce swelling. Initial healing usually occurs in 10 to 14 days. Sutures are usually removed within the first 24 weeks. Swelling and bruising gradually disappear over 3 to 4 weeks. All swelling is gone in 3 to 6 months. The scars fade in 6 to 24 months, depending on your skin. An additional procedure that may enhance the results of an Arm Lift is Liposuction of the upper arms.
This procedure is considered cosmetic and therefore is not covered by insurance. The patient is responsible for payment. Our staff at Pierini Esthetic in Miami will be happy to help you to find a financing plan suited to your needs.
