Arm Lift After Weight Loss

Conveniently located to serve Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland

If you have sagging skin on your upper arms after bariatric surgery, you may feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. Dr. Bivik Shah at the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery can help you with an arm lift, a procedure that removes excess skin and tightens your arms. You can choose to have your surgery at our office or at a nearby hospital, whichever is more convenient for you.

ARM LIFT PROCEDURE: WHAT TO EXPECT

An arm lift is different from other plastic surgeries because it involves larger incisions and longer recovery time. Dr. Shah will make an incision from your elbow to your armpit, and another one in your armpit. He will use modern techniques to minimize scarring and produce natural-looking results. An arm lift has some risks, such as infection, bleeding, and fluid collection, but they are rare and treatable.

ARM LIFT RECOVERY: HOW TO HEAL

You will need to wear a compression garment and follow Dr. Shah’s instructions to reduce swelling and speed up healing. You will be able to go home on the same day of your surgery, but you will need about six weeks to fully recover. You will also be able to resume your normal activities sooner than that.

ARM LIFT CONSULTATION: HOW TO GET STARTED

If you want to get rid of excess skin on your arms and feel more confident in your appearance, contact Dr. Bivik Shah today and schedule a consultation. He will answer all your questions and help you achieve your goals. With an arm lift, you will be able to wear short sleeves and tank tops with pride and joy!
