Achieve slimmer, tighter-looking arms with an Arm Lift
Toning and building muscle in the arms can be highly difficult if you carry extra fat in the area that results in excess skin. Many men seek to bulk up their arms but have trouble doing so if they recently lost weight, leaving loose muscles and skin. An arm lift can tighten the underlying muscles and excise the sagging skin, creating a tightened, toned profile.
This surgical procedure can be a great step in your fitness plan, as muscles that are loosened and stretched can be ineffective at building mass and becoming stronger. Dr. Florin can work with you and your aesthetic goals to plan an incision that will give you the best results with the most subtlety as your incisions heal.
Following your arm lift procedure, you may be placed in a compression wrap that must be worn as directed to reduce swelling and support your new arm contours. A mild to moderate amount of discomfort is to be expected, which can be controlled with pain medication. Bruising and swelling is normal, which will peak within the first 36-48 hours and then gradually reside over the next two weeks.
During the first week of recovery, patients should avoid activities that will raise your blood pressure
The best way to determine which body contouring procedure is best for you is through a consultation with Dr. Florin at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge, who can recommend a treatment plan that best fits your goals and requirements.

How do I know if it's the right time for an arm lift?
While only the patient can ultimately decide when its time for them to undergo surgery, there are some signs that it may be time to consider an arm lift. If you are experiencing loose skin that extends from the underarm area to the elbow due to weight loss or aging, and if you are willing to accept a scar in place for more shapelier arms, an arm lift may be right for you. During your consultation with Dr. Florin, you can discuss the procedure, as well as any questions that you may have.
What will arm lift scarring be like?
Arm lift scars will vary based on the amount of excess tissue that is removed, as well as the elasticity of your skin. During a standard arm lift, scarring is located on the inside of the arm and may extend from the underarm to just above the elbow. Generally, patients with excess arm skin are happy to exchange their loose skin for a scar.
How long will arm lift results last?
As long as your weight is stable, you can expect your arm lift results to last for many years. However, the aging process will still continue, which may alter results in the future. Nevertheless, arm laxity will still be less significant than before your arm lift surgery.
