Remove excess skin and fat in the arm area in our Caringbah and Bankstown day surgeries.
An arm lift is commonly performed when people have excess fat and skin in this area. It may at times be combined with liposuction, or be performed independently to treat skin elasticity caused by the ageing process or dramatic weight loss.
The surgeon will make an incision along the inside of the arm. We will take care to ensure the incision is inconspicuously placed. Unwanted skin and tissue will be carefully removed to reveal the desired contour of the arm. The amount of surgical correction will depend on the amount of extra skin to be removed and how loose the supporting tissue has become.
