Upper Arm Lift Surgery


Upper Arm Lift plastic surgery is done in men and women to correct the saggy upper arms either due to aging or weight loss. After massive weight loss, your skin tends to lose its elasticity and firmness. Arms are usually a source of concern as they become loose and flabby after weight loss. Upper arm lift plastic surgery removes the excess loose skin and tightens the arms giving them a nice contour.

Our plastic surgeons in India do remove extra fat from the arms through liposuction while doing arm lift, but that alone may not be sufficient. If there is a lot of lax skin, arm lift is the best solution.

The procedure is done under general anaesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours. You would be staying at the hospital for 1 or 2 nights following an arm lift and another week in India. The stay at the hospital is part of the surgical fees that would be quoted to you.
