Arm Lift and Reduction


The arms are a problem area for a lot of men and women, with many people wishing they could have smaller or more toned arms. Flabby skin, untoned arms or arms larger than desired are all common complaints; but whatever the reason, an arm lift and reduction can help.

Arm Lift and Reduction Procedure.

If you are unhappy with the way your arms look and want to be more confident, arm lift and reduction surgery may be the answer.

  • What does an arm lift and reduction involve?

    The techniques used in an arm lift and reduction will depend on the amount of excess skin present on the arm as well as the amount of fat to remove. There are three main options and the right route will be discussed with the surgeon after an initial consultation:

    1. Liposuction is the best option for those with excess upper arm fat but no excess skin.
    2. For those with minimal excess skin, the arm lift and reduction will involve an incision made near to the armpit.
    3. For those with more excess skin, the arm lift and reduction will involve an incision that runs from the elbow to the armpit, and then across to the chest.
  • Who can benefit from an arm lift and reduction?

    Arm lift and reduction surgery can benefit people who want their arms to be a little tighter and with unwanted fat removed, as well as those who have lost a lot of weight and want the excess skin removed. Arm lifts and reductions are equally beneficial to men and women.

  • What are the advantages of an arm lift and reduction?

    After undergoing an arm lift and reduction patients are left with arms with less fat and less excess skin. Additionally, many people notice an increase in self-confidence and personal image as they are much happier to show off their arms with short sleeved clothing.

  • What is the recovery period after an arm lift and reduction?

    After an arm lift and reduction pain and discomfort should be expected for 3-7 days. It is recommended that 2-3 weeks are taken off work and sport should be avoided for 6 weeks. Lots of walking or physical activity should be avoided for 2 weeks to allow for healing.

  • Who will perform the arm lift and reduction?
