An arm lift reshapes the upper arm to tighten loose skin and remove fat that often creates a “bat wing” appearance under the arm. During the procedure, a plastic surgeon makes a cut under the inner arm, from elbow to armpit, where a scar is less likely to be noticeable later. Then, the surgeon removes excess skin and fat. This procedure takes two to four hours and is done on an outpatient basis, meaning there’s no overnight stay.

In the first few weeks of recovery, there will be some temporary bruising, swelling, and numbness which will disappear in time. You will need to wear supportive wraps for up to six weeks while the swelling improves. The surgical site can take up to one year to fully heal and, while the scars from the surgery will fade over time, they won’t completely go away.

In rare cases, bleeding, infection, fluid build-up, permanent numbness of the inner arm, and asymmetry of the arms can occur.

A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. Thigh lift surgery usually lasts several hours and can be an outpatient procedure or may require a short hospital stay.

During a thigh lift, a surgeon makes a cut in the groin area near the hip, and removes excess fat and skin. Then, the surgeon stretches the remaining skin back in place, closes the incisions with small stitches and covers them with bandages.

You will have bruising, swelling, and numbness after surgery which will disappear within several weeks to months. The incision does leave a scar at the hip, but it fades in time and can be hidden by a bathing suit. Overall, the area will take up to one year to fully heal.

Serious complications or side effects of thigh lift surgery are rare, but they can include blood clots, infection, or adverse reactions to anesthesia.

A buttock lift improves and/or removes excess, sagging buttock and thigh skin that has developed as a result of weight loss, aging and gravity, or genetics. By raising and tightening the skin over the buttocks, a buttock lift makes the buttocks appear less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled.

During the procedure, your surgeon will make an incision at the top of the buttocks, in the hips, groin, or under the buttock cheeks to remove excess skin and pull the remaining skin taut. There is typically no overnight hospital stay required for this procedure.

After surgery, a sterile dressing is applied and you will wear a compression garment or elastic girdle that tightly holds the skin in to reduce swelling and aid in the natural tightening of the skin. Buttock lift surgery will require two to three weeks of recovery before you can resume normal activities, and full healing will typically take several months. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery , being in good health, not smoking, and having help after surgery will increase the speed of healing, improve your results, and prevent complications.
