The Incision Location for the Arm Lift Procedure

The arm lift procedure requires the creation of incisions in order to reshape the upper arm and remove underlying tissues.
The incisions for the arm lift procedure are made along the inside or underside of the arm. This location is not as visible as other parts of the arm, so any post-surgical marks will be well-hidden a majority of the time.

The size of the incision will depend on the amount of tissue that needs to be removed. For a traditional arm lift, the incision stretches from the elbow to the armpit. For a more comprehensive arm lift, the incision can go past the armpit around the side of the torso.
