Working procedure of the arm lift
Corrective surgery of minor laxity in the arm is done by tightening the skin and reattaching it to the armpit. In most scenarios, the skin will be stretched in two directions, which will result in the formation of an S-shaped scar from the elbow to the armpit which is sizeable. The scar is usually placed on the inside of the arm to lessen the visibility of it, for aesthetical purposes. If there is an excess of fat, this will be removed in the same corrective procedure if required for the preferred result. Your skin will be sutured using stitches and sealed with adhesive plasters. Due to improved techniques, drains for excess blood will often not be necessary.
