Separate: An arm lift is not part of a body lift. Always need to have a clear understanding with your doc as to what is going to be done.
Dr. Ricardo Rodriguez

Separate Procedures: Most typically, a body lift and arm lift are not performed in the same surgical session. It is best to discuss your concerns and options with a board certified plastic surgeon who can help you make the best possible surgical plan for your specific case. Best wishes!
