An arm lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the under portion of your upper arms. During an arm lift — also known as brachioplasty — excess skin and fat are removed from between the armpit and elbow. The remaining skin is placed back over the newly repositioned contours to create a more toned look.

Description

Procedure

Both the surgeon and patient still have problems with the surgical rejuvenation for the upper arms. Brachioplasty is a procedure that reduces the skin’s redundancy and reduces the circumference. Liposuction can reduce fat deposits if there is good skin color and minimal skin sagging. Surgery can only correct any severe skin redundancy and laxity. You will need to make the incision in the axillar crease of your arm and along the inner aspect of your arm, following a line that runs from the elbow to the epicondyle. After removing a small amount of skin-dermis, fat and skin, the subcutis is closed with routine aesthetic suturing.

Length

An arm lift can take up to three hours.

Anesthesia

An Arm lift Anesthesia can be generalized or localized with sedation.

Inpatient/Outpatient

Both are possible.

Side effects possible

Sometimes, lymphoedema and edema can occur in the arms.

There are risks

Highly visible, keloid scars or cutaneous nerve injuries.

Recovery

It may take 7-10 days for the healing process to complete. For several months, a compression or elastic bandage may be recommended.

Results

Young patients with good skin tone and adiposity can achieve stable results. Adults of older age may also be able to get good results, although they might need several months of elastic compression after the operation.
