Arm Lift & Thigh Lift

Print This Page

After losing a significant amount of weight, many patients feel that the resulting lax and sagging skin detracts from their accomplishment. The loose, hanging skin in areas such as the upper arms and thighs is caused by loss of elasticity such that the skin can't contract to fit the new slimmer body contours.

Dr. Michael J. Weinberg loves to see the restored confidence his many arm lift and thigh lift patients in Mississauga and Toronto have after surgery. The results of these surgeries are among the most dramatic in all of cosmetic surgery, especially when coupled with other contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck or liposuction. Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Weinberg was invited to demonstrate these procedures on television, for Skin Deep, where his patients expressed overwhelming improvement in body image after their procedures.

Arm Lift & Thigh Lift Procedure

Arm lift and thigh lift procedures can take from 2 to 4 hours, depending on the extent of lifting necessary. Dr. Weinberg makes incisions for arm lifts from the underarm to the inside of the elbow, along the underside of the arm where they will be least visible. He makes thigh lift incisions from the hip to the interior thigh along the crease of the groin. If there is a great deal of excess tissue, an incision extending down the interior of the thigh may be necessary. As with all surgical procedures, there are possible complications that can occur with arm lift & thigh lift. Potential complications specific to your surgery will be discussed in detail at your consultation. For a discussion of general risks of surgery, review Dr. Weinberg's Your First Visit page.
