Candidates: Patients without excess weight and with loose skin on the interior of the arms owing to loss of skin elasticity due to age or extreme weight loss. It´s important that a patient who undergoes this procedure prefers a long scar to hanging skin.
Type of pain: Stinging of the wounds, especially in the region of the armpit.
Scars: Usually the whole lengh of the inside of the arm, continuing in a Z or T shape under the armpit.
Consequences: Permanent or temporary numbness on the inside of the arm, scar.
What can I do if I have a fatty arm?
If excess weight is not the problem, a liposuction should be done in combination with the arm lift depending on the quality of the skin.
