First Steps

What’s the first step?

The first step in pursuing your Arm Lift is to schedule a consultation with either Dr. Savannah Moon or Dr. Stephanie Scurci. During this initial appointment, you can discuss your concerns, goals, and expectations for the procedure. The surgeon will carefully examine your arms, taking into consideration factors such as skin quality, amount of excess fat, and muscle tone. She will also review your medical history and inquire about any previous surgeries or treatments you have undergone.

This consultation is a valuable opportunity for you to ask questions or express any concerns. Your surgeon will explain the surgical techniques involved, the potential risks and complications, and the expected outcomes.

You will then leave the office with a plan for the procedure should you choose to move forward with it.


What to expect on the day of Arm Lift surgery

On the day of your Arm Lift surgery, you will arrive at our Fort Lauderdale, FL office where you will be greeted by the surgeon you have booked your surgery with, as well as our entire passionate support team. Anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

The surgeon will carefully make incisions along the inner or back surface of your upper arms, through which she will remove excess skin and fat. The incision length and pattern during arm lift surgery depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, as well as the best judgment of your plastic surgeon.

Incisions are generally concealed on the inside of the arm or the back of the arm and may extend from the underarm (axilla) to just above the elbow. Excess fat may be directly excised or treated with liposuction.

Depending on your specific condition, incisions may be more limited. Then, underlying supportive tissue is tightened and reshaped with internal sutures. Finally, the skin is smoothed over the new contour of your arm.

Once the desired changes have been made, the incisions will be closed with sutures, and your arms may be wrapped in dressings.

The length of the procedure can vary, but on average, Arm Lift surgery in Fort Lauderdale, FL takes only a few hours. When finished, you will be closely monitored in a recovery area and provided with detailed post-operative instructions for a smooth recovery.

Arm Lift Recovery

During the recovery period after an Arm Lift procedure, it is normal to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. It is important to follow the instructions provided by your surgeon, which may include wearing compression garments and taking prescribed pain medication.

Gradually resuming normal activities and attending follow-up appointments will help us monitor progress and guarantee optimal healing.
