The procedure

The arm lift is a surgical procedure that helps tighten the skin of the inner arms, after having removed the excess.

Classically, the skin is removed in the longitudinal and transverse to the most effective results possible. In some cases, where excess is a minor, the arm lift can be done by a small scar in the armpit. These cases are rare, and the technique is less effective.
