Arm lift surgical details
An arm lift in Surprise is done under general anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure (if it’s being done as a standalone surgery). The operation takes 2 to 4 hours to complete. The surgeon will create an incision under the arm that runs from the elbow to the armpit. This location is used to result in minimal visibility for the scar. Once the incision has been made, the excess skin will be removed and the skin will be tightened. Finally, the incision will be closed with sutures.
