What can I expect during an Arm Lift in Tampa?

Dr. Soler generally performs an arm lift under general anesthesia. An incision is made which extends from the elbow to the armpit for removing the excess skin and fat. Even though the incision is placed in the most inconspicuous location, some scars will still be visible.

What is the recovery process for Arm Lift Surgery?

Post surgery, your arms will either be placed in an elastic sleeve or wrapped to help reduce the swelling. The initial healing period ranges from 10 days to 2 weeks. The sutures will be removed within the first 24 weeks. The bruising and swelling diminishes gradually over 3 to 4 weeks. Depending on your skin, the scars from the procedure take 6 months to 2 years to fade away. Additionally, liposuction of the upper arms may help in contouring of the upper arms.

Any risks or individual suitability of an Arm Lift must be discussed directly with Dr. Soler during the consultation. Even though all surgical procedures carry a slight degree of risk, any major complications are very rare for an arm lift surgery in Tampa. Any minor complications that may arise do not hamper the end result of your surgery.
