Your Arm Lift Consultation

Dr. Scott Holley wants all of his patients considering an arm lift to feel comfortable and confident in their decision. Your consultation will be centered on providing you with the best information about this arm toning surgery. In your initial consultation, Dr. Holley will discuss with you the various ways he can sculpt and tighten your arms to give you the results you have in mind. He will allow plenty of time to answer questions, talk about your expectations, and provide a comfortable space to discuss and examine your arms.

Arm Lift Questions to Discuss with Dr. Holley

  • Is an arm lift right for me?
  • How can I prepare for arm lift surgery?
  • How long before I can return to my daily activities?
  • What soreness in the arms can I expect after surgery?

Your Arm Lift Procedure

You will be placed under general anesthesia or sedation to ensure comfort throughout your arm lift surgery. Depending on your current arm size and ideal shape, Dr. Holley will either make an incision along the inner arm, the back of your arm, or a small incision under the armpit.

Once the incision is made, any excess fat may be removed through liposuction. The tissue below is then tightened to give your arm a youthful contour, and the excess skin will be removed for a firm look and feel. The incisions will be closed up with sutures.

Arm Lift Recovery

Immediately after surgery, you may experience some bruising and swelling. Bandages or dressings will be applied to decrease the swelling post-surgery. You may be given a small tube underneath the skin that will help remove excess fluid.

You will see some immediate results post-surgery which will improve as the swelling decreases. This long- lasting solution will be permanent with good healthy diet and exercise. Having firm, sleek arms is possible and the results of an arm lift will stick with you for a lifetime.
