Arm lift surgery can recontour the tissues of your upper arms, making them appear slim and toned. Any excess skin will be trimmed away, so you won’t have to worry about hanging folds of arm skin.

Part of arm lift surgery is the closing of incisions. This will be done using medical sutures. In one to two weeks following the procedure, your incision areas will typically have healed to the point where you’ll be able to get the stitches taken out.

In some cases, dissolvable stitches are used to close arm lift surgery incisions; these stitches will not need to be removed. Instead, they will dissolve on their own.
