Patients often change their lifestyles because of embarrassing cosmetic issues with their bodies. When it comes to the upper arm area, many people turn to long-sleeve shirts to hide the loose skin that wiggles with every movement. As an experienced plastic surgeon in the Philadelphia area, Dr. Glat performs arm lifts to restore the natural contours of the upper arms.
Arm lift patients frequently want to know how significant the scars will be after arm lifts. While each patient’s surgical plan is unique, patients may have a minimal incision placed in the armpit area or a more extensive incision from the armpit to the elbow. The incision length and placement depends on how much excess skin and fat need to be subtracted, as well as where the arm needs to be contoured. Arm lift patients should rest for at least a week before resuming normal activities. The most common post-surgical symptoms are bruising, tenderness, and swelling, and a compression garment helps alleviate many of these symptoms.
The scars after an arm lift may be the reason that many women and men choose not to have arm lifts, but the benefits far outweigh the downside of any potential scarring. Patients who undergo arm lifts are no longer embarrassed by the loose skin that flops about with every movement, and they can wear their favorite short-sleeve and sleeveless clothes without feeling self-conscious.*
Most arm lift patients are between the ages of 35 and 65, but Dr. Glat performs the procedure on patients of all ages. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Glat today and find out how an arm lift can give you the contoured arms that you have always wanted. Dr. Glat may recommend an arm lift as part of post-bariatric body contouring. To learn more about the body contouring procedures offered by Dr. Glat, visit the links below.
