Arm lift surgery is performed to improve the appearance of saggy skin on the upper arm. Sagging of the arm skin may occur due to rapid weight loss or aging. The sagging skin is removed with arm lift aesthetics. Surgical techniques vary according to the person and the severity of the sagging. Liposuction can be applied to people with excess fat tissue during the procedure.

How is Arm Lift Surgery Performed?
Arm lift surgery is performed in three different ways being mini arm lifting, standard arm lifting and extended arm lifting. The most appropriate surgical technique is determined according to the sagging condition in the arm.
Mini Arm Lifting: The operation is started by making an incision in the armpit area. This procedure is suitable for people with little sagging of the skin. The arm is thinned with lopsuction and the excess skin is pulled under the armpit.
**Standard Arm Lifting: **An incision is made from the armpit to the elbow. Since the cutting process is done from the inside of the arm, no traces are visible when viewed from the front and back.
Extended Arm Lifting: An incision is made from the elbow to the lateral chest wall. It is the most effective surgical method for patients with excessive arm sagging. A more prominent scar can be seen compared to other methods.

Frequently Asked Questions
Even if not very notable, there will be a scar after the surgery. However, these scars do not attract attention as they will be on the inside of the arm. Depending on the application area of the operation, the areas of the scars may expand. Over time, the scars will become less noticeable and less disturbing.
It is normal to develop edema in and around the application area after the surgery. At the end of 48 hours, the swelling reaches its highest level and passes away within 1-2 weeks.
Depending on the details of the arm lifting procedure, the duration of the operation may vary between 1-2 hours.
You can return to your daily life at the end of 10 days after arm lift surgery. You should not do sports other than light walking for 1 month.
There are no risk factors specific to the surgery. However, as with any surgery, there is a very low risk of infection. This risk can be reduced by the precautions taken during and after the surgery.
