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.
