What is Arm Lifting (Brachioplasty)?

Arm lifting, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure which aims to improve the appearance of the upper arms. This surgery involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper arms, tightening the underlying supportive tissue, and reshaping the arm to create a more toned and contoured look. Arm Lifting is especially beneficial for individuals who have experienced significant weight loss, leading to sagging skin, or those with naturally aging skin that has lost its elasticity. The procedure can enhance the appearance of the arms, making them appear more firmer. It is an excellent procedure for individuals looking to achieve a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing arm contour, which cannot be achieved through exercise alone due to the nature of the excess skin.

Who is suitable for Arm Lifting?

While considering whether you are suitable or not for the arm lifting, we should check different factors:

  1. Patients need to have a desire to improve the appearance of their upper arms
  2. Patients should be in good overall health.
  3. Patients need to seek a tighter and youthful arm appearance.
  4. A good candidate must have realistic expectations about the results.
  5. Emotional readiness is important for a successful outcome.

The key point is to check every patient's unique needs, to decide whether they are suitable or not.

Important information!

To perform a arm lifting procedure, there are three main steps:

Consultation : Discussing needs and outcomes

Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with your doctor to discuss your goals, outcomes.

After agreeing on the details, our medical staff schedule your operation day.

On the surgery day, the patient follows a detailed procedure designed to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome. The process starts with preparing the patient for surgery, including administering anesthesia to ensure a smooth process.  Once the patient is under the effect of anesthesia, the surgeon makes incisions in predetermined locations.Sometimes this might be on the underside of the arm or within the inner arm, to minimize visible scarring. These incisions allow the surgeon to remove excess skin and fat, and to tighten the underlying supportive tissue.

Incisions vary according to the amount of excess skin and the specific areas needing correction. In cases of minimal excess skin, an incision might be limited to the area near the armpit. For more extensive reshaping, the incision may extend from the elbow to the armpit, following the natural contours of the arm to enhance the final aesthetic result.

After reshaping and tightening the tissue, the surgeon shapes the new contour of the arm with sutures. Excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is smoothed over the newly formed arm shape. Once the restructuring is complete, the incisions are closed—either with absorbable sutures or stitches.

Following arm lifting surgery, it's common for patients to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the upper arm area. Your surgeon may prescribe pain medication to ease these symptoms. Good care routine for the incision sites is crucial to prevent infection and fastens smooth recovery. Patients are said to limit physical activity, particularly exercises that strain the upper arm muscles, for about 4 to 6 weeks post-surgery to ensure ideal healing. Wearing compression garments is really important for this period. These garments help reduce swelling and support the new shape of the arms.

It's also important to protect the incision sites from direct sunlight to minimize the visibility of scars. Although many patients find they can resume their normal  routines within 2 to 4 weeks, the complete healing process and the final settling of the arms' appearance might take a couple months. 

Following your surgeon's post-operative care instructions carefully is crucial for achieving the best results from the surgery.
