Trim and Tighten Skin With an Arm Lift


A woman pinches the extra skin on her upper armMassive weight loss is typically a positive change in the body but may leave excess and sagging skin that prevents complete satisfaction with a dramatically slimmer figure. This can be particularly obvious with hanging skin below the bicep; however, this is easily solved by undergoing an arm lift treatment. Dr. H. Joseph Naim can provide cosmetic surgery recommendations for your arms as well as any other part of your body affected by your body transformation from his fully equipped offices in Los AngelesLong Beach, and Orange County.

Excess skin in the arms can prevent you from wearing the clothes you want and fully enjoying your new figure. Dr. Naim personalizes every arm lift treatment he provides and uses a variety of advanced methods to hide scarring and achieve shaping uniquely fit for you and your body.

Arm Lift Surgery Details

Like many cosmetic surgeries, an arm will begin with anesthesia. The exact dosage of anesthesia will vary from patient to patient and is carefully measured and monitored to ensure that you do not experience pain or discomfort during your procedure. Dr. Naim utilizes three types of incisions for arm lift surgeries:

  • Inner arm incision: This incision starts slightly toward the front of the body at the armpit and makes a straight line down to the elbow.
  • Back-of-arm incision: A back-of-arm incision starts just above the tip of the elbow and runs down the lowest point of the bicep to a few inches below the armpit.
  • Minimal incision: This method creates a crescent incision that runs from the front of the body where the crease of the armpit begins down and around to the same place on the back of the body.

These incisions can achieve a variety of arm shapes and are customized to accommodate a variety of patient body types. All incisions allow Dr. Naim to trim excess skin and provide more contoured and shapely arms for his patients. When the surgery is complete, the incisions will be carefully sutured and wrapped to prepare for recovery. Dr. Naim will provide detailed post-operative instructions, including details on how many days you can anticipate resting and information on cleaning and bandaging the surgical sites.
