Many of our patients struggle with excess, sagging skin on the upper arms. An arm lift with Dr. Kotis is designed to sculpt and tone this notoriously hard-to-treat area.

Why Are Arms So Difficult to Tone?

Upper arm droopiness can be incredibly frustrating. Even at a healthy, stable weight and following a targeted workout regimen, the excess skin often remains due to the resistant nature of the tissue in this area. When diet and exercise simply aren’t enough, an arm lift in Chicago with Dr. Kotis can help you achieve the results you deserve.

Are You A Candidate for an Arm Lift?

Most of our patients are considered strong candidates for an arm lift in Chicago with because it’s a relatively low-risk procedure. However, there are some things to keep in mind when deciding whether or not to have this surgery:

  • Does your weight fluctuate? If you need to lose a substantial amount of weight or if the number on the scale fluctuates often, you may want to hold off until your weight is stable.

  • Are you generally healthy? The best arm lift candidates are healthy individuals that simply have a difficult time toning this particular area of the body with strength training.

  • Why are you having surgery? Dr. Kotis wants his Chicago patients to be happy with their results – and much of that involves having realistic expectations about surgery.

The Arm Lift Procedure

The arm lift procedure is done under IV sedation / local. To begin, Dr. Kotis will make a small incision in a discreet location on the inside of the upper arm. The incision will then extend downward depending on how much excess volume you need removed. In some cases, it will reach the elbow.

Dr Kotis has developed a measuring technique in order to minimize scarring and placing the scar in an inconspicuous location.

Through that opening, Dr. Kotis will remove excess fat, trim away excess skin and pull your remaining skin tight. Once the Chicago arm lift procedure is complete, he will carefully close the incisions to minimize any scarring and ensure an optimal healing process.

Arm Lift Recovery

There is a recovery period associated with an arm lift. Here’s what to expect as you heal:

  • Soreness is normal and can be minimized with your prescribed pain medication.

  • Avoid exercise and heavy physical activity, but begin lightly walking as soon as possible.

  • Keep your arms elevated at all times, even while sleeping.

  • Stay home from work for two weeks.

Your Results Slim, toned & Healthy Arms

Arm lift surgery typically provides fantastic results for our patients, with slim and fit upper arms that are visible immediately after surgery.

Your results will continue to improve for a few months as your scars lighten and any post-surgical swelling dissipates. In general, optimal outcomes are apparent within two to three months. They should endure indefinitely, as long as your weight does not fluctuate.

Patient Testimonial

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! As you know, I had my brachioplasty and lateral wall pexy surgery (I think that’s what the second one is called, LOL!) in July of 2020. I cannot tell you enough how grateful I am for the AMAZING job that you did! My arms have always been such a sore spot for me. My whole life I have struggled with my weight and with my ups and downs, my skin has been stretched and deflated so much. I had weight loss surgery in September of 2019 and lost about 105 lbs. at the point when I first came to see you. Although I was thrilled with my weight loss success and I had gained so much confidence in my physical appearance, my arms were still bothering me terribly. I felt so self-conscious about the hanging flaps of skin that were not going to go away no matter how hard I worked out to tone up my arms. Upon my first visit with you, I knew in my heart that you were the surgeon I had been searching for and that this surgery would be the answer to my prayers! I was sooo very right!!! The pain was manageable and the results are exactly what I had hoped to achieve. You were extremely attentive and I greatly appreciate how informative and caring you are and have been throughout this journey. Your skillful work has truly made my dreams come true and I cannot thank you enough for bringing so much happiness and joy back into my life!
