To begin the procedure, Dr. Roth will administer anesthesia. Next, he will make an incision along the inside of the upper arm, which can extend from the underarm to the elbow. Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. The doctor can also administer liposuction before tightening and reshaping underlying supportive tissues. Finally, Dr. Roth will tighten the remaining tissue and close the incisions with sutures to enhance the contours of your arm.
Following surgery, your arms may experience temporary swelling or bruising, but any discomfort can be controlled with basic pain medication. Patients should return to light walking as soon as possible to minimize the risk of blood clots and other complications. The incisions should heal within two weeks, and you will need to keep your arms elevated for several days following surgery. You will also be instructed to avoid lifting or bearing any weight on your arms for several days.
Your hands are in almost constant motion.
