Procedure techniques & scars
Arm lift surgery requires general anaesthetic to ensure patient comfort. Dr. Mok will make an incision along the back of the arm, that may extend from the underarm to just above the elbow. The exact length and pattern of the incision will vary among patients depending on the amount of excess skin, fat, and skin quality. Through this incision the underlying supportive tissues will be reshaped and tightened to create a more defined upper arm. Dr. Mok will then tightly smooth over the remaining skin to close the incision with sutures. Liposuction may be used during surgery to remove excess fat. This can help create more defined and desirable results for patients.
