An arm lift is the common name of the Brachioplasty procedure, which is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat and skin from the arms. The final result will be smoother and slimmer arms.
This procedure is for those who lost a significant amount of weight and have excessive and sagging skin in their arms. Also for those who can’t get rid of stubborn fat with diet and exercise alone.
The traditional procedure consists of the removal of droopy skin and excess fat, to give a tight and smooth appearance to the upper arm.
Depending on the amount of fat and skin, your surgeon could suggest a variety of methods and options. For example, if it’s a small amount of fat, a liposuction could be a better option than a Brachioplasty.
After the surgery, the patient can expect to go home after two or three days depending on the extent of the procedure. Either way, the surgeon will evaluate your situation and decide on the amount of time you’ll spend at the clinic.
The use of compression bandages is mandatory. It helps to reduce swelling and fluid accumulation.
You will be able to return to work and drive until at least five weeks.
No physical activity or exercise is allowed during the first month of recovery.
It takes up to six months to see final results after the scars have healed.
