Arm Lift – Facts and Figures

Plastic SurgeryHow do you feel when you go to wave and that skin under your arm jiggles?

Unfortunately, it’s just part of aging and losing muscle tone. But, an arm lift surgery can smooth the appearance of the arms, while also removing loose skin and fat.

We’ve researched the topic and found out how much it costs, what the recovery is like and how long the results last:
