Toledo arm lift plastic surgery for more contoured arms.

Fluctuations in weight, aging, and genetics can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance.

Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues and localized fat deposits. For men and women in Toledo, arm lift plastic surgery can offer the outcomes they desire.

An arm lift will reduce or eliminate excess skin from the upper arms. An incision is made from the elbow to the armpit, so some scarring will be visible. With proper care, scars do fade over time.

Length of Upper Arm Lift Plastic Surgery

Our Toledo arm lift surgery lasts 1 to 2 hours.

Anesthesia Requirements for Arm Lift Plastic Surgery

Typically, general anesthesia will be used during your arm lift.

Risks of Arm Lift Plastic Surgery

Bleeding, infection, risks of anesthesia, and scarring are possible risks of brachioplasty.

Recovery from Arm Lift Plastic Surgery

The smoother, tighter contours that result from brachioplasty are apparent almost immediately following your procedure, although initial results will be somewhat obscured by swelling and bruising.
