At PERK Plastic Surgery, the arm lift also includes liposuction of the arms. After a careful examination of your concerns, a personalized treatment plan will be created. Dr. Lee will first remove any remaining fat from the upper arm and then remove the excess skin. Incision placement is critical to a successful arm lift.

“I am so thankful that I came across Dr. Lee's profile. I was interested in a cosmetic procedure and felt completely at ease with choosing Dr. Lee as my surgeon. She is very personable yet professional. I really like the fact that she doesn't try to "sell" you to be someone that you aren't, but rather helps to enhance your own personal beauty. My surgical experience was very positive. Thank you to Dr. Lee and her team of skilled professionals!”
The best candidate for an arm lift is someone who is suffering from excess skin that hangs down from the upper arms. The loose skin may cause self-consciousness and discomfort. Because weight changes can affect the aesthetics of the arms, the best candidates for an arm lift are individuals at a stable weight for at least 6 months.
In addition, candidates for elective plastic surgery should be in good mental and physical health. Clients should not have any major active medical issues that would interfere with their procedure or recovery. Patients should be non-smokers with realistic expectations for their outcome.
Scarring is one of the primary concerns for an arm lift patient. Dr. Lee carefully studies your body’s natural creases and hides the incision on the inner folds of the arm. This keeps the incision hidden when your arm is down by your side. We are passionate about scar care at PERK as well.
Scar care starts before the incision is ever made. Dr. Lee’s gentle handling and meticulous suturing techniques allow for optimal healing. Once healed, the PERK scar rehabilitation protocol combines scientifically proven creams, laser treatments, massage and injectables to further minimize the appearance of scars.
