Patients often suffer from upper arms that are too thick and/or too flabby. Liposuction can help very well with too much volume and also has a firming effect, especially in younger people. In most cases, no surgical tightening is required. The scars are only a few millimeters in size and inconspicuous.
Surgical tightening must be carried out if the skin is too flabby and there is a lot of excess skin. We perform the upper arm lift under local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. The skin incision is made on the inside of the upper arm so that the scar is later rather inconspicuous. However, the patient must be aware that a surgical scar will always remain visible.
