Arm correction / Arm surgery / Liposuction for the arms

Our hands and arms are our second "business card" after our face. They play a decisive role in non-verbal communication. They should be well-groomed, slim, trained, muscular and toned. This is associated with vitality, youthful freshness and physical attractiveness. Fat deposits, sagging skin and visible blemishes, such as pigmentation spots, are undesirable. 

But unfortunately, a disciplined exercise program alone is often not enough to achieve the desired result. Especially after weight and hormonal fluctuations, the skin on the upper arms sags. Even in the case of lipedema, for example, the pathological fat pads cannot be treated with regular measures. Here, an arm lift or liposuction can show new ways.

Dr. Dr. Christina Irene Günter will be happy to help you on your way to your desired arms and is available for an individual consultation. Together we will decide which treatment is right for you. Treatment alternatives, advantages and disadvantages, risks and possible undesirable results will be honestly explained.

Depending on the findings, there are various possible incision designs and resulting scar courses. In the case of a "major" arm lift, scarring on the inside of the upper arms is unfortunately unavoidable. Fortunately, the scars usually heal well and quickly and become relatively inconspicuous. 

If skin elasticity is sufficient, liposuction alone may be sufficient, requiring only 1-2 small incisions about 0.5 cm long. 

Which method is suitable can only be clarified in an individual personal consultation with Dr. Dr. Christina Irene Günter.

 Detailed consultations are also mandatory before such an operation. It is also important to discuss the motivation for the procedure. It is also very important to discuss whether the desired result is feasible and possible limitations. Alternative treatment methods should also be discussed at this time, as well as possible undesirable side effects and risks. 

It goes without saying that health is always given priority as a matter of principle. Operations that affect your health or the physical integrity


As with any other surgical procedure, arm lift surgery can cause bruising (hematoma), secondary bleeding, swelling, wound healing problems, infection, and sutures coming apart. Temporary numbness in the operated area is also possible. In the nature of tightening surgery, there is a certain feeling of tension in the surgical area that may persist for a few weeks.

If you decide on a surgical procedure, it is essential that you are cared for professionally and personally during the entire process. 

I attach great importance to perceiving, advising, and treating you as an individual, with all the facets of your personality. My many years of experience, expertise, empathy, and communication are central pillars of my therapeutic success. Intensive and personal post-treatment care is as much a focus of my work as the preparation and the treatment itself. After all, a perfect result can only be achieved by working together as a team.
