Arm contouring is performed at an accredited surgery center in Newport Beach, California, USA. Under the care of a Board Certified Anesthesiologist, general anesthesia (fully asleep) is used to ensure maximal comfort and safety. The procedure typically lasts 2-3 hours depending on the degree of shaping required.
The arm lift incision is disguised in the inner portion of the arm and armpit, minimizing long-term visibility and distortion. Liposuction and Renuvion® skin tightening access incisions are hidden in the armpit and are generally imperceptible upon full healing. Occasionally, a second incision is required near the elbow, however this is determined pre-operatively on a case-by-case basis.
