Arm and Inner Thigh Lift

Following significant weight loss, the skin and soft tissues of the arm and inner thigh can become loose and sag.  Many patients do not like the appearance of the excess, sagging skin and are self-conscious about their arms and inner thighs.  The excess skin may also be problematic as the arm can rub on the side of the chest and the inner thighs can rub together.  Arm lift (brachioplasty) and inner thigh lift can improve the appearance and reduce the rubbing of the arms and inner thighs by removing this excess skin and improving the contour.

Good Candidates for Arm and Inner Thigh Lift

Good candidates for arm and inner thigh lift surgery are patients who have:

  • Undergone significant weight loss
  • Have a stable weight
  • Have loose, sagging skin of the arm or inner thigh
  • Whose weight is close to or within ideal range

How is Arm and Inner Thigh Lift Performed?

Dr. Martin performs arm and inner thigh lift surgery in the operating room with his patients asleep. Arm lift involves making incisions along the inside of the arm from the armpit to the inner aspect of the elbow. Thigh lift involves incisions in the groin and along the inner aspect of the thigh. Excess skin and soft tissue is removed. The remaining skin is tightened and the wounds closed along the inside of the arm and thigh. Sometimes liposuction is performed at the same time to improve the contour. Surgical tapes, a dressing and compression garment are applied at the end of the procedure.

Recovery Following Surgery

Patients often can go home the same day of surgery. Patients are encouraged to be up moving around but to avoid strenuous activity for 3 weeks following surgery. Surgical tapes are removed 2 weeks after surgery and that point scar treatment is applied to the incisions. Full recovery is 6 weeks following surgery. There are several follow up visits with Dr. Martin after surgery to ensure patients heal properly.
