Will I have visible scars after an arm lift?

An arm lift is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arms, resulting in a smoother, more contoured appearance. While the primary goal of an arm lift is to improve the overall appearance of the arms, scarring is an inevitable part of the healing process.

The extent and visibility of scars after an arm lift can vary depending on factors such as the technique used, the individual's skin type, and their body's healing response. In most cases, the incisions for an arm lift are strategically placed along the inner aspect of the upper arm, where they can be concealed within the natural contours of the arm or along the underside of the arm where they are less noticeable.

Plastic surgeons at Formedi in Antalya, Turkey, take great care to minimize scarring and ensure that incisions are placed in inconspicuous locations whenever possible. They also guide scar management techniques to help scars fade over time.

While scars from an arm lift may initially appear red, raised, or noticeable, they typically fade and become less visible over time. Individuals need to follow their plastic surgeon's post-operative care instructions to optimize the healing process and minimize scarring.

Some individuals may be more prone to developing noticeable scars due to factors such as genetics, skin type, or history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring. However, with proper care and attention, the vast majority of individuals achieve satisfactory scar healing following an arm lift.

While visible scars are a common concern for individuals considering an arm lift, the benefits of improved arm contour and enhanced self-confidence often outweigh the potential for scarring. By choosing a skilled plastic surgeon and following post-operative care instructions diligently, individuals can achieve smoother, more youthful-looking arms with minimal scarring.
