ARM LIFT

Arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms. It is an effective solution for people who have lost significant weight, experienced natural aging, or have excess skin due to genetics.

 

For Whom Arm Lift is Suitable?

Arm lift is suitable for people who have excess skin and fat in their upper arms, causing discomfort, sagging, or self-consciousness. It is recommended for individuals who are in good physical health, maintain a stable weight, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.

When Arm Lift is not Suitable?

Arm lift may not be suitable for individuals who have severe medical conditions, uncontrolled diabetes, or active infections. It is also not recommended for individuals who are obese or smoke cigarettes.

What Techniques are Used in Arm Lift?

Arm lift techniques vary depending on the extent of skin and fat removal required. In general, the procedure involves an incision along the inside or back of the upper arm. The surgeon will then remove excess skin and fat, reshape the arm, and close the incision with sutures. Some patients may also benefit from liposuction to further contour the arm.

Preparation for Arm Lift Surgery

Before undergoing arm lift surgery, patients should consult with a qualified surgeon to discuss their goals and medical history. The surgeon may recommend certain lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking or adjusting medications, to reduce the risk of complications. Patients should also avoid blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, in the weeks leading up to surgery.

Risks of Arm Lift Surgery

As with any surgical procedure, arm lift carries risks, such as bleeding, infection, scarring, and nerve damage. Patients should follow their surgeon's post-operative instructions carefully to minimize the risk of complications.

Procedure for the Arm Lift Surgery

Arm lift surgery typically takes 1-3 hours to complete, depending on the extent of skin and fat removal. The patient will be placed under general anesthesia to ensure comfort during the procedure. After the surgery, the patient will need to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and promote healing.

Healing Process Post-Op

The healing process after arm lift surgery can take several weeks. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for several weeks and follow their surgeon's instructions regarding wound care and pain management. The final results of the procedure may take several months to fully appear, but the patient should experience a significant improvement in the appearance and comfort of their upper arms.
