Q: Dr. Eppley,I would like to know if I am a candidate for short scar upper arm lift. I had liposuction of the upper arms done 1 1/2 years ago. Since then, my upper arms sag moderately. Thank you
A: Without seeing pictures of your arms, I can only conjecture as to the utility of a short scar armlift in your case. But having had liposuction previously with ‘moderate’ sagging now present, you may well be a candiddate. It depends on exactly where the greatest amount of sagging skin is. The closer it is to your armpit or upper half of the arm, the more likely a limited armlift may be of benefit. It will result in no improvement near the elbow or lower half of the arm.
