    Arm lift in Montreal



The loosening of the skin of your arms has increased with age? You are concerned about the saggy appearance of your arms when you wear short sleeves?

The arm lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that improves the appearance of sagging arms. It removes excess skin and fat from the arms to correct their drooping. This technique creates younger-looking arms. In certain cases, this surgery may help to develop self-confidence and may result in a positive impact on patients’ lives. The technique used by Dr. Fanous to perform the arm lift uses limited dissection “Mini-dissection”. It allows you to go home on the same day as the surgery.

“Often, this surgery may help to develop self-confidence and may result in a positive impact on patients’ lives.”

“Since cosmetic surgery is an important decision, I feel it is important to inform my patients of all their options, their advantages and disadvantages. Establishing a trust relationship with my patients is essential. Hence, they feel comfortable to ask any questions necessary to make an informed decision.”





Your arm lift … without general anesthesia

at the Canadian Institute of Cosmetic Surgery

  • A long incision is made along the lower surface of the arm to remove the excess skin and fat.
  • The arm lift lasts about two hours and a half.
  • Local anesthesia with sedation is used, without general anesthesia. You can go back home the same day and rest properly.

Usually, the postoperative pain is moderate or minimal after an arm lift. Scars are covered by a light dressing for a week after the surgery. It is also often necessary to wear a special support garment around the arms for several weeks after this cosmetic surgery to help decrease the swelling.

Most patients return to work in 1 to 2 weeks. However, avoiding sports is recommended for 4 weeks following this plastic surgery. During the recovery time, you’ll be monitored Dr. Fanous to make sure that everything is under control. Meanwhile, you’ll also be able to ask all your questions and talk about your concerns.

As for any surgical intervention, complications are possible but uncommon, such as infection, bleeding, excessive scarring, sensory changes, cutaneous necrosis, asymmetry, numbness, pain, implant rejection, etc.

By following Dr. Fanous’ instructions, some of these risks may be reduced.
