Loose Arms

Having lost weight is a huge achievement, so congratulations.

You’ve heard the comments more often than you like, ‘tuck-shop arms’, and ‘batwings’, referring to the flabby skin that hangs from your upper arms. You hate especially when summer comes around and you want desperately to wear that sleeveless top – but you dare not. We’ve all been in that position.

You find it embarrassing when you go to wave to a friend – it’s like there are two waves – you know what I mean. You’ve tried all the arm exercises and weights at the gym and the more you lose weight the more it seems to worsen.

Do you want to do something about it then consider an Arm Lift?

Would you like to chat with a surgeon about your options?

An Arm Lift removes the excess tissue and loose skin of your upper arms. This procedure may also be combined with liposuction of your arms.

Is this for me?

FAQ

You may have a few questions at this point, like:

How long is the operation and what is the recovery time?

The operation may take between 1.5 to 3 hours. It will be several weeks before you can see the results.

Where will the incision marks be?

The incision marks will usually be along the armpit crease. This depends on the amount of excess tissue you have. The scar may be limited to the armpit only or it may extend part of the way down your arm. The stitches are hidden beneath skin. These incision marks will fade over a number of months.
