Contouring the arms is a struggle for many people as it can be difficult to wear certain clothes, or you may feel they are disproportionate to the rest of your body. An arm lift in San Antonio may be a perfect treatment for you if you want to tighten and shape your arms.
What can an arm lift do for you? When performed by one of our top plastic surgeons, you can revitalize your arms. This cutting-edge body sculpting procedure removes excess skin and fat on your arms, which can sag due to age, pregnancy, or weight loss. An arm lift can tighten and shape the arms, improve your self-esteem, and give you the confidence to wear all your favorite clothes again.
Do I Need an Arm Lift?
Many people approach us with concerns about the look of their arms. Genetics, weight gain, weight loss, aging, and too much sun can cause loss of elasticity leading to saggy arm skin, rippling arm tissue that can look unattractive, and decrease self-confidence. The San Antonio arm lift addresses all these concerns, helping you fall in love with your body again.
Everything You Need to Know About the Arm Lift
You are an excellent candidate for an arm lift in San Antonio if you have good mental and physical health and a stable BMI. It is important to have a stable BMI because we want to give you a result that is going to last for years to come. Arm lift results are improved if you are already within your goal weight–otherwise, any additional weight loss will affect your arm lift results. This procedure is ideal for you if you do not have any unstable chronic illnesses, are a non-smoker, and can commit to a healthy diet and lifestyle following your surgery.
During your initial consultation with one of our skilled plastic surgeons, they will review your complete medical history. To make the process and recovery as smooth as possible, we will also recommend lifestyle changes such as eliminating smoking, drinking, aspirin, or blood thinners before the surgery. Our expert medical team in San Antonio will assess your needs and determine the best surgical strategy for your arm lift. One of our surgeons will thoroughly review the risks, downtime, and recovery of the arm lift procedure so you know exactly what to expect.
Typically, an arm lift is performed under general anesthesia to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure. The arm lift will typically start with liposuction. Liposuction removes stubborn fat from the arms, while contouring and shaping the arms through precise incisions. After your surgeon removes the excess fat and skin from the arms they can carefully reposition and lift the arm to shape and rejuvenate your appearance. Our team will conceal the incisions as best as possible.
In total, the arm lift surgery takes around three hours. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss the necessary recovery time and some unique post-op scar solutions to help you achieve the best result possible after your arm lift.
To recover optimally after your arm lift procedure, schedule lots of downtime for rest and recovery. For the first few weeks, or as directed by our medical team, avoid exercise or strenuous activity. We recommend you avoid overextending your arms to ensure a smooth healing process. You should follow a balanced, healthy diet.
