Planning Arm Lift Surgery
In order to plan the surgery, the technique to be applied must be decided. The technique to be applied depends on the quality, thickness and sagging rate of the fat tissue under the skin. With weight gain and loss, sagging of the skin and skin thickness may be excessive. In such cases, liposuction can be performed first and then surgery. Also, the size of the sagging skin is important. If the sagging under the skin is only in the armpit, a non-surgical technique can be planned. However, surgery is necessary for sagging extending up to the elbow.
