Arm Skin Tightening
After severe weight loss excess skin may be present on the upper arm. This often causes irritation of the skin and may be perceived as unsightly.
Excess skin and fat can be removed and the skin tightened on the inside of the upper arm in combination with a liposuction to restore tight skin tone. The scar is positioned on the inside of the upper arm and is therefore less apparent.
Hospital Admission: 1 day
Recuperation Time: 3-4 weeks
Post Surgery: Drains are placed in the wounds to collect fluid. The patient must wear a compression garment for at least three weeks.
