Arm lift surgery is frequently preferred among aesthetic interventions applied for body shaping. Patients who apply for arm lift surgery, also called brachioplasty, usually want to get rid of the sagging problem in their upper arm areas. Arm lift surgery can be applied to excess skin and fat tissue in the area between the elbow and the armpit. With this operation, sagging skin and excess fat in the arm area are removed.

Arm Lift operation takes about 3 hours. After the operation, you need to stay under observation in the hospital for 1 day.

The operation is performed using general anesthesia.

After arm lift surgery, patients can be discharged after being observed overnight. In some cases, you can be discharged on the same day, depending on the doctor's approval. After the first week with the recommendation of the doctor, patients can easily return to their daily lives.

The scars are usually placed on the inside and back of the arm, trying to reduce their visibility. Considering that wound healing takes an average of 1 year, it can be said that scars may become unclear at the end of 1 year. After arm lift surgery, it is possible to leave a small amount of scars in the incision areas.

Arm lift operation is performed through incisions made on the areas with excess fat and skin on the upper arm. Although it may seem like a simple procedure, it may have some risks as it is a surgical operation. Conditions such as bleeding and edema may be observed in the application area. In addition to these, infection that can be seen after every surgery, although rare, is among the risks of arm lift surgery. To minimize the risk of a possible infection, medications containing antibiotics are recommended by your doctor.

Arm Lift Surgery: An Aesthetic Surgical Solution to Rejuvenate Your Arms

Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that has become increasingly popular in recent years for correcting sagging and loose skin on the arms. Various factors such as aging, rapid weight loss, or genetic predisposition can lead to the development of excess skin and fat tissue in the arm area. This condition can affect an individual's self-confidence and overall quality of life. However, arm lift surgery offers an effective solution to these concerns.

Who is a Candidate for Arm Lift Surgery?

Arm lift surgery is suitable for anyone who is bothered by sagging or loose skin on their arms. Especially with the aging process, a decrease in skin elasticity can lead to sagging in the arm area. Additionally, arm sagging is commonly observed following rapid changes in weight. In such cases, arm lift surgery emerges as an aesthetic solution.

How is Arm Lift Surgery Performed?

Arm lift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and lasts approximately 2 to 3 hours. During the procedure, an incision extending from the inner part of the arm is made, and excess skin and fat tissue are removed. This process results in the arms having a tighter and more youthful appearance. Additionally, excess fat tissue within the arms can be removed using liposuction techniques.

Benefits and Expectations of Arm Lift Surgery

Arm lift surgery removes sagging arm skin and excess fat tissue, resulting in tighter and more aesthetically pleasing arms. This boosts self-confidence and allows for more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing clothing choices. The post-operative recovery period may take several weeks, and it is important for patients to follow their doctor's recommendations during this time.

Recovery Process After Arm Lift Surgery

The recovery process after arm lift surgery typically lasts a few weeks. During this time, it is important for patients to rest and follow their doctor's instructions. Regular check-ups are necessary to ensure successful recovery and achieve long-lasting results.

Arm lift surgery offers an effective solution for individuals bothered by sagging arm skin. However, like any surgical procedure, arm lift surgery carries certain risks and potential complications. Therefore, it is important to have a detailed discussion with your doctor before the operation to assess the risks. Remember, thorough research and consultation with a doctor are necessary before any surgical procedure.
