Arm Lift Surgery

Arm Lift Surgery

Sagging and loosening may be seen on the upper and inner arm because of different reasons such as ageing, sun exposure or gravity. Operations that are performed to correct the visual deformations in the arms are called arm lift surgery or brachioplasty. It is very important that the doctor is experienced enough and can make correct decisions in brachioplasty.

Liposuction or laser liposuction is applied in situations where an aesthetic appearance is desired for the arm and the patient desires to get rid of the fat on the arm. Fat is removed during the process. Liposuction might be enough to achieve an aesthetic look.

In case the patient has an advanced arm deformation or sagging, the operation is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. The operation takes approximately an hour.

The skin and the fatty tissue are removed in an ellipse form from the inner or back part of the arm during the operation. The cut areas are stitched from the inside and outside with an aesthetic concern. Later, the arms are wrapped with an elastic bandage. The patient may return home on the same day. It is recommended that the arms are held high especially during the first days after the operation. The stitches are removed on the 12-14th day. The patient may return to their social routine within a few days.

There might be purpleness or swelling on the arms after the operation. It is recommended that the patient does not carry heavy things and keeps movement of the arms limited for a time.
