Arm Lift

A sagging back and the inner sides of the upper arms are usually caused by excess fat accumulation and sagging skin. Other causes of sagging include age, gravity and temporary weight loss. This is because the skin and subcutaneous tissue in these regions is looser. The extent of sagging and fat tissue accumulation varies from person to person. Therefore, each patient to be treated with arm lift surgery should be evaluated individually.

Arm lift surgery can be performed alone or in conjunction with Arm lipo, breast lift, tummy tuck, leg liposuction. Arm lift surgery should be performed in a properly equipped hospital. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 2 to 3 hours. It is sufficient if you spend the first postoperative day in the hospital under medical supervision, because you will not have significant pain.

The procedure that removes excess fat and skin from a person’s arms to make the arms look slimmer and firmer is called arm lift (brachioplasty). Arm lift surgery is usually performed on women over the age of 40. Arm lift surgery can be performed on anyone who has excess fat and skin on their arms and is uncomfortable with the resulting appearance.

As with all surgeries, you must stop smoking and taking aspirin, blood thinners, and similar substances about 3 weeks prior to the arm lift. Immediately prior to surgery, you must also provide your doctor with the necessary information about your general health and any medications you are taking. You should also refrain from taking certain painkillers.

The arm lift begins with an “L-shaped” incision that runs from the armpit toward the neck. Typically, the arm is tightened by removing only the patient’s excess skin.

However, for patients with extremely thick arms, liposuction is also performed during the arm lift procedure. When this procedure is added, the surgery becomes more successful. The surgical procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and the surgery takes between 2 to 3 hours.
