What is Invisible Arm Lift Surgery?


Posted by Dr. Hardesty

The upper arms are one area that many patients struggle to tone. Whether it’s due to loose skin after weight loss or with age, or stubborn fat, these issues can be difficult to treat with diet and exercise alone. With an arm lift surgery, the excess skin is removed and the upper arms are tightened and toned. But many are concerned about the incision it leaves behind. Luckily, Dr. Hardesty offers several solutions to achieving an “invisible” arm lift.

Hidden Incisions

There are several different options when it comes to incision placement with the arm lift procedure. For more severe sagging, you might require an incision along the back of the armor on the inner arm. However, others may benefit from a minimal incision hidden in the underarm or under the natural curve of the breasts. These incisions are completely unnoticeable, leaving your arms more toned, but without visible signs that you had help!



Liposuction Techniques

Liposuction techniques are often used in combination with arm lift techniques if stubborn fat is present. But for some, liposuction may be all that is required, eliminating the need for large incisions. Liposuction requires several small incisions where a cannula can be inserted and used to break up and remove fat cells. These small incisions leave little to no scarring for virtually invisible arm contouring.

Radiofrequency-Assisted Liposuction

Hidden incisions can make your arm lift unnoticeable, but with any surgical procedure comes some scarring. The only way to get a truly invisible, scarless arm lift is through non-surgical techniques. There are many systems available like InMode RF and BodyTite that use radiofrequency energy to heat the tissue, causing the skin to contract and tighten. These systems do not require large incisions like those needed for an arm lift procedure, leaving no large scars behind!

Scar Therapy

Dr. Hardesty will do everything he can to ensure your scarring is as minimal and unnoticeable as possible. However, if you are left with bothersome scarring, there are many solutions that can help fade its appearance. Dr. Hardesty utilizes Embrace technology and silicone gel strips to assist scar healing, leading to less visible scars. There are also many laser skin treatments that can be performed once healed to help generate new skin cells, fading the appearance of scars.
