Arm lifts are very popular among women. In many cases, losing even the smallest amount of weight can cause the dreaded “chicken wing”. Thankfully, this is something that can be addressed. This procedure involves an incision that begins in a concealed area (arm pit) and then, depending on the amount of skin present, our surgical team extends the surgical line towards the elbow. The scar line is situated on the inner portion of the arm and in most cases is barely visible. In order to achieve superb results, our surgical team will typically perform minor liposuction in the area.
