WHAT IS AN ARM LIFT?




An Arm Lift is a cosmetic surgery that aims to improve the shape and appearance of the upper arms by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying muscles. It is also known as Brachioplasty.

ABOUT THE ARM LIFT PROCEDURE



An arm lift procedure usually takes about two to five hours and is performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes a horizontal incision between the pubic hairline and the elbow and lifts the skin and fat from the arm. The surgeon then tightens the arm muscles with stitches and removes any excess skin and fat. The remaining skin is pulled down and stitched together, creating a firmer and smoother arm. The surgeon may also use liposuction to remove unwanted fat and contour the arm. The patient may have drainage tubes inserted under the skin to remove any fluid or blood.

ARM LIFT RECOVERY



The recovery time for an Arm Lift varies depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Generally, the patient can expect to have some pain, swelling, bruising, and numbness for the first few weeks. The patient should avoid any strenuous activity and follow the surgeon’s instructions for wound care and medication. The patient should also wear a compression garment or bandage to support the arm and reduce swelling. The drainage tubes are usually removed within a week, and the stitches are removed after two weeks. The patient may return to work after two to four weeks, depending on the nature of the job.

The final results of the procedure may take up to a year to appear, as the swelling subsides and the scars fade.

ARE YOU THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR AN ARM LIFT?



An arm lift is suitable for people who have excess skin and fat in the upper arms that do not respond to diet or exercise. The patient should also be in good health, have realistic expectations, and be at a stable weight. An arm lift is not recommended for people who plan to lose a significant amount of weight, might consider pregnancy in the future, have chronic conditions that affect healing or are allergic to anesthesia.

An Arm Lift is generally considered a safe procedure, but like any surgery, it carries some risks and potential complications. These include infection, bleeding, scarring, asymmetry, tissue damage, nerve damage, fluid accumulation, poor wound healing, and dissatisfaction with the outcome. To minimize these risks, it is important to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon, follow the pre-operative and post-operative instructions, and report any signs of problems to the doctor.

An Arm Lift is designed to last for a long time, as the skin and fat that are removed from the arm are permanent. However, the results of an arm lift can be affected by factors such as weight fluctuations, aging, pregnancy, and lifestyle. To maintain the results of an arm lift, the patient should avoid significant weight loss or gain, exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, and avoid smoking.
