Questions on Arm Lift

What does an arm lift surgery do?

With aging or due to massive weight loss, the skin of the upper arm becomes loose and flabby which can put some people in distress while wearing sleeveless clothes. Arm lift surgery or Brachioplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the arms. The procedure helps such people get rid of fat from the upper arms to give youthful contours. 

How is an arm lift surgery performed?

An arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery entails making an incision along the underside of the upper arm from below the elbow to an area near the underarm. 
The surgeon would make sure to make the incision in the least conspicuous place. The unwanted tissue, fat, and skin are removed carefully and the natural shape and contour of the arm restored. If the arms are very fatty, fat is then suctioned out with a small tube, the procedure called as liposuction. After removal of excess fat and tissue, the incisions are closed and the area bandaged. The surgeon may recommend that liposuction is done alone or in conjunction with the procedure.

Who is the right candidate for the procedure?

The right candidate for the surgery is the one who has excessive skin and large volume and folds of skin under the arms where the fat used to be. If the arms have excessive fat and more sculpted appearance, liposuction of the arms is a more preferred option.

How long is the recovery period?
You can resume light sundry work within 1- 2 weeks. You would be advised not to lift heavy objects or get involved in large amounts of arm movements for 4-6 weeks.

You would be advised to follow a recovery regimen including elevating the upper body and placing ice packs on the area of the incision. The results are visible about two months following the surgery with arm uplifted and the skin well toned.
