Upper arms: No more drooping, wiggling, or embarrassment

You may have changed some aspects of your lifestyle due to embarrassing loose upper arms. You may only wear long-sleeve shirts to hide the loose skin and tissue that wiggles with every movement. As an experienced Philadelphia arm lift surgeon, Dr. Glat performs arm lifts to restore a youthful, firm contour to the upper arms.

What is an arm lift, and what does it entail?

You may be worried about visible scars from an arm lift. While your surgical plan will be unique, you may have a minimal incision in the armpit area or a longer incision from the armpit to the elbow. The incision length and placement will reflect how much skin and fat need to be removed, as well as where the arm needs to be contoured. The procedure will take between one to three hours, based on the corrections needed.

What is the recovery time after an arm lift?

After an arm lift, you will need to rest at least a week before resuming your normal activities. The most common post-surgical symptoms are bruising, tenderness, and swelling, and a compression garment helps alleviate many of these symptoms.

What are the benefits of an arm lift?

The benefits far outweigh the downside of any potential scarring from an arm lift. If you undergo a custom arm lift, you will be free from embarrassment by the loose skin that flops about with every motion. You can wear your favorite short-sleeved and sleeveless tops with confidence – your arms will look firm and fit, without the jiggle of loose skin and fat.
