Arm Lift

Brachioplasty is an aesthetic surgery operation that is applied to the upper arm skin, which grows and loosens parallel to the progress of age and weight loss.

You can strengthen your upper arm muscles in this area without surgery, with arm stretching exercises, but unfortunately you cannot eliminate the existing elasticity and fat deposits and even excess skin.

Brachioplasty is also referred to as arm fit in medical literature. In Brachioplasty the upper arm contours are reshaped so that excess skin between the armpit and the elbow is reduced in fat, resulting in a more proportionate appearance. In more sophisticated operations, the incision mark remains in the upper arm. Brachioplasty allows the upper arms to look younger and firmer, allowing for increased self-confidence and wearing short sleeves.

How is Brachioplasty Examination Made?

How is Brachioplasty Made?
In Brachioplasty, the excess, fat, skin and subcutaneous tissue inside the arm is removed and the operation is finished to provide the natural and young appearance of the arm as before. Liposculpture methods can sometimes be included as ancillary methods in Brachioplasty.

The medication is provided for your convenience during the surgical process. Your doctor will make the best choice for you, start the operation with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. The exact length and form to be inserted into the arm varies depending on the amount of skin to be extracted. Depending on the surgeon's preference, the incisions are made in the interior or back of the arm and are performed only in the area up to the armpit with the elbow. After this, liposuction or different fat transfer methods are applied to remove the fat. The arm muscles and fat tissue are reshaped and the closure stage begins. Arm stretching incisions are usually closed with removable or absorbable stitches.

After Brachioplasty

You will have a very comfortable period after Brachioplasty. Swellings and bruises in your arms and a slight mild numbness in these areas will be observed and they will stop within approximately 2 weeks. Once you are home, we advise you to leave the hospital with information about the procedures you need to follow.

Returning to Routine Life after Brachioplasty

We receive very positive feedback for Brachioplasty. The recovery process of first scar is observed within 5 to 10 days. After 2 weeks from the operation, the swellings disintegrate and the incision lines begin to fade. In the meantime, the patient can return to normal life. Severe physical sports activities should be avoided for 2 months after Brachioplasty. With lifelong weight control and arm exercises you can protect your rejuvenated appearance. In addition, a healthy lifestyle contributes to the long life of the results.

This can only be determined by examination. To be able to have liposuction only, you should have proficiency in the skin and tissues of the arm. Patients who have suffered dramatic weight loss typically have the skin needed for Brachioplasty incision. If you are experiencing a specific sagging problem you will not benefit from LipoSuction.

After the operation, your arms will be bandaged for a few days. Following this, your arms will remain in the compacting garment that you need to wear for 2 weeks. This will help the skin tighten around itself. Also, it helps to support the scars during the recovery period.

It takes about 1-2 weeks to maintain your daily activities and about 4-6 weeks to continue most sport activities.

Anyone who has lost excess weight, who has saggy arms, and experiencing problems with the appearance of their skin may be able to have Brachioplasty.

Many patients state that the pain is tolerable. The vast majority of patients say they are in good condition a few days after the surgery.

It is usually performed under general anesthesia in the operating room. In addition, additional local anesthesia is injected into the operation region.

That will depend on the certain amount of tissue that should be removed, whether the tissue is near the inside of the arm or below the arm.. The traditional vertical incision goes under the armpit. If the excess tissue is confined to the upper part of the upper arm, a short arm incision with a crescent-shaped incision in the subcutaneous region may be performed.

Recovery of first scar takes approximately two weeks. After that, your surgeon will have different suggestions for you to minimize the appearance of the incision.

Surgery lasts for 2 hours.
