WHAT IS An arm lift?

Fluctuations in weight, older age, and heredity can cause the upper regions of your arms to have a sagging appearance. This, unfortunately, cannot be corrected through exercise.

An arm lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes the under portion of your upper arm, just after your shoulder region to the elbow.

It does this by:

  • Reducing excess sagging skin that hangs downward
  • Tightening and smoothening the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape

Post-Operative Medication: Patients are given both pain killers and antibiotics for management

Pricing: Standard for all patients unless very limited surgery is done which can then also be performed under local anaesthesia
