I’m interested in an arm lift. Is the incision made on the inside of the arm or on the underside of the arm?
The placement of the incisions for an arm lift or “brachioplasty” depends on how much extra tissue is present on the upper arms. Some women don’t have much extra skin at all and may see enough improvement and skin tightening with smartlipo only! For those with limited extra tissue, the scar may able to be hidden in the underarm region. Those with significant tissue excess of the upper arms may require a full arm lift with an incision extending down the inner arm. This scar still remains relatively well hidden when one’s arms are in a relaxed position by their sides. For many, getting rid of their long hated “wings” is worth the tradeoff in scars for contour!
