Excessively sagging skin in the upper arms is a common cosmetic concern and one that can create an unattractive appearance.
Arm lift cosmetic surgery is a safe, predictable, and effective procedure to restore the appearance of tighter, more youthful-looking arms.
At the time of the pre-operative consultation for an arm lift, the patient should openly ask the surgeon any questions or express any concerns that they may have regarding the surgical procedure.
A responsible plastic surgeon will encourage the patient to clarify all their doubts and offer accurate responses. The primary goal of the surgeon will be to assist the patient in making an informed choice.

Key Questions to Ask
Ideally, the patient should create a list of questions before the consultation and carry this list to the surgeon’s office.
This will help ensure that no important questions are missed out, and the patient achieves a complete understanding of arm lift surgery and the surgeon’s background. Some important questions for an arm lift surgery consultation may include:
- Are you a board certified plastic surgeon?
- What number of years of training and experience do you have in the field of cosmetic surgery?
- Are you a member of any prestigious plastic surgery associations, such as the ASPS?
