ARM LIFT

(BRACHIOPLASTY)

  Arm lift is a cosmetic procedure that helps to improve sagging skin and excessive fat from the upper arm that has lost the elasticity and enables to have a more toned upper arm. It’s often impossible to get rid of the excess sagging skin on your arms using exercise alone. One can expect long lasting results with new contoured arms that can give a boost to your overall body image.  

Arm Lift Procedure

  Arm lift surgery is carried out under general anesthetic and it takes around 4 hours and requires a 1 or 2-night hospital stay. During this procedure incision are mostly made underneath the arm and are therefore less visible. The incision can be ‘zigzag’ shaped which aids healing, or a curved ‘smile-shaped / crescent shape’. Through the incision surgeon remove fat, often using liposuction, and cuts away excess skin. Then the skin is stretched and contoured into its new shape and sutured in place. The exact positioning of incisions depends on the extent and amount of skin and underlying fatty tissue that is to be removed.

  • Candidates who have lost significant amount of weight and left with sagging upper arms and want to enhance body counter and symmetry.
  • Candidates who have tried dieting and exercise but with little lasting effect
  • Candidates who have excess sagging skin and fat tissue around the upper arms
  • Ideal for candidates whose weight has stabilized and who are at or near their ideal body weight.
  • Individuals do not have medical illness / life-threatening illness that can impair healing.
  • Non – Smokers and Non alcoholics
  • Best suited for patients who have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure

Arm lift surgery is carried out under general anesthetic and it takes around 4 hours and requires a 1 or 2-night hospital stay. During this procedure incision are mostly made underneath the arm and are therefore less visible.  The incision can be ‘zigzag’ shaped which aids healing, or a curved ‘smile-shaped / crescent shape’.  Through the incision surgeon remove fat, often using liposuction, and cuts away excess skin. Then the skin is stretched and contoured into its new shape and sutured in place. The exact positioning of incisions depends on the extent and amount of skin and underlying fatty tissue that is to be removed. Based on their general assessment, you may have to undergo one of four types of incisive procedures. Arm Liposuction – Arm liposuction is an option if skin has enough elasticity to shrink around the remaining tissues after fat is removed. Limited incision Brachioplasty – If excess hanging skin is located close to the armpit, then surgeon may be able to pull up and tuck this excess skin into the armpit. Standard Brachioplasty -: If your excess skin extends like a bat wing from the armpit to the elbow, the only option is complete removal of the arm flab in a standard brachioplasty. Extented Brachioplasty- This is for the most severe cases, where the accumulation of skin or fatty tissue is excessive, such as is typically seen in patients who have had a gastric bypass. In this case, the scar extends from the elbow to the lateral chest.

  • Arm is dressed and then covered in firm support bandages to alleviate swelling and pain and help prevent any blood clots.
  • Drainage tubes are placed to remove any fluid build-up in the wound, these are usually removed within a day or two. If liposuction is done, a garment is to be worn for 6 weeks.
  • Pain and burning are the common symptoms for which your surgeon will prescribe pain medication and antibiotics to prevent infection.
  • Dressings are removed 2-3 days after surgery, and sutures are removed in 7-10 days unless they are self-dissolving.
  • Patient may return to work and non-vigorous activities in about 3-6 weeks, depending on the extent of surgery.
  • Patient is advised to start walking around as soon as possible in order to reduce the swelling and prevent blood clots in your legs.
  • Regular exercise may be resumed in about 6-8 weeks or as advised by your surgeon.
  • Advised to have regular follow up visit with the surgeon.
