Who should not have an arm lift?
An arm lift is not a suitable procedure for everyone. In some cases, it is strongly advised that you do not have an arm lift. It is not recommended if you have had:
- A complete mastectomy (removal of the breast) after breast cancer
- Surgery on the armpit or lymph nodes under the arms.
These procedures affect the drainage of the upper arm and therefore can cause post-operative swelling to persist and increase the risk of complications.
