Arm Lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the under portion of your upper arms. During the Arm Lift procedure also known as Brachioplasty, excess skin and fat are removed from between the armpit and elbow.
Arm Lift is usually performed with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. The incision length depends on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. After making the incisions on the undersides of your arms, the surgeon will use a suction technique to remove fat. Then, underlying supportive tissue is tightened and reshaped with internal sutures. The skin is smoothed over the new contour of your arm.
Incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures or stitches and will be covered in bandages. Your arms may be wrapped in a bandage to minimize swelling. Avoid lifting your arms above shoulder level for the first weeks, as well as arduous physical activities. The results of Arm Lift surgery will be long-lasting, you will have a more toned appearance in your upper arms.
