Upper Arm Lift

Description of the procedure and the resulting effect

The surgeon makes an incision from the armpit toward the elbow joint along the inner line of the arm. He/she then removes the excess skin, including the subcutaneous tissue, and stretches the loose skin upwards. At the end of the surgery, the surgeon closes the wound with absorbable sutures, applies a sterile dressing and binds the arms with bandages. On the first or second day after the procedure, the doctor removes the drains and puts on a compression garment.

During an individual consultation before the surgery, the doctor will discuss all your options and recommend a specific procedure and incision to achieve the best result. He will then explain the course of the entire operation and postoperative care. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, so a preoperative evaluation is required, which includes an interview with an internist, blood test, ECG and blood pressure readings.


Special elastic underwear is worn for 6-8 weeks 24 hours a day. The first week after the surgery, complete rest is recommended. Lighter housework is possible in 14 days. More demanding physical activities are prohibited for 2 months. Returning to work depends on your own feeling of recovery, but usually within one week after the surgery. The procedure is amazingly effective and permanent. The result should be your satisfaction and overall boosting your self-confidence and especially your quality of life.
