An arm lift is a surgical procedure which improves the shape and firmness of the arms, either because the skin in this area is loose or to balance it there has been great weight loss.
The procedure, which is carried out under general anaesthetic, consists in carrying out liposuction to facilitate the traction of the skin and then eliminating excess skin.
The surgery lasts between two to three hours and calls for complete rest for one or two days. The vast majority of daily activities can be restarted after a week, although it may take two to return to work make.
It should be noted that, in the case of those with very lax skin who have never carried out physical exercise, it may be that after some years the flaccidity will return. Nevertheless, there will never be a return to the situation prior to the operation.
