Short-Scar Arm Lift Surgery
Aging or significant weight loss often leaves sagging skin in areas where it is almost impossible to lose with diet and exercise. The upper arm is one such area. Excess sagging skin can feel unattractive and can be problematic for some types of clothing. If you have moderate skin elasticity remaining, Dr. Dayan can perform a short-scar arm lift surgery to remove excess skin and fat for a tighter, smoother appearance.
Short-scar arm lift surgery, also called a crescent lift, due to the shape of the incision, utilizes a smaller scar to provide access to the area underneath the upper arm. Because there is remaining elasticity in the skin, less tissue must be removed and smaller tightening techniques are required. The scar is easily hidden in the armpit and heals much quicker than if a longer incision were necessary.
