Dr. Mark Fisher Intro

Restoring Your Youthful Arms

Persistent bulges of extra skin and pockets of stubborn fat that just won’t respond to healthy eating and consistent exercise can sometimes cause us to notice a loss of muscle tone and definition in the upper arms. Eventually, they can even begin to sag and droop to a somewhat significant degree. In many cases, this is simply a part of the natural aging process. Sometimes it can be spurred on by weight gain or weight loss, or another life event.

If you’re looking for a way to restore a youthful and toned appearance to your upper arms, an arm lift with Dr. Mark Fisher is the procedure for you. By trimming away excess skin and removing any unwanted fat cells, Dr. Fisher can leave your upper arms looking toned and fit once more. To learn about how the arm lift can help you, reach out and set up a consultation with Dr. Fisher at our Westport location today.

Preparing for Your Arm Lift Procedure

Dr. Fisher will schedule a preoperative consultation with you at his Westport office, which will be your chance to learn everything there is to know about your arm lift. Dr. Fisher will go over your personal medical details and will use this opportunity to help you understand the important details of your procedure.

Together, you’ll discuss everything from the placement of the incisions during your surgery, to the recovery and aftercare experience. Dr. Fisher will give you clear instructions for after your surgery and will set up follow-up appointments so he and his team can ensure that you’re healing properly.

Your actual arm lift procedure will be performed on an outpatient basis. Most arm lifts take between one and two hours, and you’ll be placed under general anesthesia for the duration. You’ll need a friend to drive you home once the procedure is completed, at which point you’ll begin your recovery process.

Recovery After Your Arm Lift

The Day of the Procedure

Once your arm lift procedure is completed, you will be placed in a special arm garment or wrap to help with healing after the procedure. You’ll be able to head home with another person driving you as the anesthesia fully wears off. In some cases, patients may choose to have the arm lift performed alongside other procedures, in which case an overnight hospital stay might be preferred.

Initial Recovery

After the procedure, Dr. Fisher and his team will ensure that you’re given the proper pain medications to help you stay comfortable. Most patients have an initial recovery period of about one to two weeks, and you’ll start to notice the swelling and bruising start to fade away after about five days.

Rejoining Your Routine

Most patients feel well enough to rejoin their normal day-to-day routines at some point within the next two weeks, but we advise anyone undergoing an arm lift to avoid strenuous exercise, heavy lifting, and similar activities for about six weeks.
