Recontouring of the Arms

Montreal Arm LiftsExcess flabby skin in the arm region is often seen following massive weight loss and managing this condition will depend upon the amount of both skin and fat. Minor cases are best treated with liposuction alone whereas patients with significant amounts of excess skin will require a localized lipectomy (removing excess skin and fat) leaving a scar on the inside of the arm. These procedures are performed in a private operating facility on an outpatient basis. The procedure usually lasts from 1 to 1 1/2 hours and patients leave the private operating facility with only a light bandage on each arm. A swift and uneventful recovery following arm lifting allows most patients to return to work within a few days following surgery.

Arm lifting is very safe and reliable. During your office consultation, Dr. Zelt will discuss with you the associated risks and complications. Fortunately, most are very uncommon and the vast majority of patients enjoy an uneventful surgery and recovery period.
