What No One Tells You About Arm Lift Surgery

Everyone wants to look as youthful as possible and one of the ways to acquire this is by having shapely contoured arms. If you have loose or excess skin on your upper arms and don't like it then you can always get an arm lift. An arm lift is a form of cosmetic surgery that is not meant for weight loss purposes but can greatly help to improve the condition of the arms, especially as a person ages. The final result of arm lift surgery is skin that is smooth, contoured and very healthy looking.

There are things about arm lift surgery that you are not automatically told. For example, only people in optimum health are encouraged to have this surgery. Healthy people tend to heal much quicker after surgery than do people in a poorer state of health. It is recommended that people who want to undergo this surgery quit smoking a few months preceding the surgery as smoking can inhibit the healing process.

Arm lift surgery is not for people who need to lose a great deal of weight- it is contouring surgery instead. If you are obese and are working to lose weight then wait until you have reached your goal before you consider doing something about the loose skin on your upper arms.

Only a plastic surgeon can decide if you are a good candidate for arm lift surgery. Sometimes liposuction is a more appropriate choice. An arm lift is best if there is lots of loose skin present on the upper arm. Liposuction is better if there is lots of fat on the upper arm but the skin is relatively tight. If you have heavy arms that are the result of too much fat then liposuction is the better choice for you.

Sometimes not enough is said about the scars that come about as a result of arm lift surgery. Scars are the number one drawback of having this type of surgery. The incisions and therefore the ensuing scars start at the armpit and go to the elbow and are all to be found on the inside area of the arm. Often this surgery means that you are trading one unsightly problem which is loose saggy skin for another problem, that of scars from surgery. If you are not okay with the thought of scars then do not have arm lift surgery. Be aware that no matter how skilled a plastic surgeon is, they can never predict how many scars you will have and how long they will take to heal.

Patients who have undergone a mastectomy should never have arm lift surgery. The reason for this is that the lymph glands that drain fluid may have been damaged due to the mastectomy and having more surgery such as an arm lift could lead to persistent redness and swelling. Other people who would not be good candidates for arm lift surgery are those who have had a number of infections in their armpit region or those who have axillary hidradenitis (otherwise known as excess sweat formation).
