The aim of an upper arm lift is to remove excess skin and soft tissue such as subcutaneous fat. The natural shape can be restored by the upper arm lift and a sporty and slim figure can be achieved.
The arm lift is performed under two different medical aspects. On the one hand, the tightening of the upper arms in patients after massive weight loss serves to reduce excess skin. On the other hand, many people suffer from a weakness of the connective tissue, which, as part of the natural aging process, can lead to additional sagging of the skin on the upper arms. In these cases, it is also useful to tighten the upper arms in an operation.Continue reading

The classic operations in plastic surgery are increasingly supplemented or sometimes even completely replaced by the alternative, minimally invasive treatment methods. It is no different in the field of skin tightening. The traditional, surgical upper arm lift is only one of many ways to get rid of excess skin. Often this is done completely without surgery, minimally invasive, gentle and, above all, scar-free. Methods such as laser skin resurfacing, tightening with the help of thread lifting, tightening with liposuction or laser lipolysis can be used.
Laser skin resurfacing: In non-surgical upper arm lifting with the help of laser, fat cells are destroyed under local anesthesia using different wavelengths. However, the procedure can be used if the excess skin is minor. If larger skin flaps have already developed, only surgical intervention can achieve a satisfactory result.
Upper arm lifting with thread lifting: In this procedure, thin, self-dissolving threads are implanted into the skin under local anesthesia to bind the sagging tissue. In this way, the upper arms are tightened – but only temporarily, as the effect wears off after about three years and the procedure should be performed again.
Liposuction: If the sagging tissue is mainly caused by the abundant fat deposits, the upper arms can be tightened with the help of liposuction alone.
Laser lipolysis: This innovative procedure is a combination of laser treatment and liposuction, removing the fatty tissue and smoothing the skin at the same time.
The result of an upper arm lift is usually very satisfactory, regardless of which method our patients have had upper arm surgery with. If someone has had an upper arm lift, the reports of experience are generally positive. In our experience, our patients leave the Sinis Clinic Berlin very happy with their upper arm lift.
