Finding Armlift Surgeon?
Thank you for the question.
When choosing a plastic surgeon it is important to do your due diligence carefully. You will find that well-trained, well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons are extremely capable in performing a variety of different procedures and managing the potential complications associated with the procedures
I am sure there are many well-qualified plastic surgeons in your area. I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons. Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. Ask to see lots of examples of their work and preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.

Axillary arm lift incision
Patients and Plastic Surgeons prefer as small an incision as possible to achieve a desired result. Often a small incision means less correction. WIth any lift procedure there is a trade off between the scar length and the result. Big scar equals big result, and smaller scar less result. After a consutation your physican and you can determine the best course of action for you.
Under Arm Lift
I like to refer to this procedure as a minimally invasive arm lift or minimal incision arm lift. Not everyone is a candidate for this procedure and evaluation by a board certified plastic surgeon is of the utmost importance. If you don't have a lot of excess skin then a axillary lift will work but if you have a great deal of excess skin you will probably need a full lift or brachioplasty.
Go on several consultations. Sometimes in my practice I will combine lipo of the arms with a short scar lift and Thermage to tighten the skin - a three prong attack so to speak.
When you are ready make an appointment with several plastic surgeons in your area and then make your decision on what to do.
Good luck with your choice.

There should be many Arm Lift doctors in your area
An arm lift is very effective in removing the extra skin from the elbow to the axilla. It DOES leave a scar which some patients don't like. The best thing to so is call the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and tell them your location.
