Arm Lift

You may have wings of skin and fat below your upper arms. If this is the case, you may be a candidate for an arm lift. If there is good skin tone all you may need is liposuction since liposuction can contract the skin to some extent (see Abdominal Liposuction). If you have too much extra skin for liposuction alone then some skin can be removed.

Since the scars from arm lifts are not trivial, it is important to keep the scar as short as possible so that it is not visible beyond a short sleeve shirt. This may not always be possible. It is better to have a small amount of loose skin at the elbow which can be normal than to have a scar that is visible and brings unwanted attention to your arms.
