Brachioplasty (Arm Lifting)
Looseness developed in the back and inner parts of arms due to weight gain and loss, growing old, staying under the sun excessively and gravity. Looseness in the arms becomes more visible when lifting up the arms in sleeveless clothing.Ptosis that occurs on the upper, rear and inner parts of the arm happens due to fat accumulation and the sagging of the skin. Skin and subcutaneous tissue in the region are loose.
The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you. Incision length and pattern during arm lift surgery depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, as well as the best judgment of your plastic surgeon.Your incisions will be closed either with absorbable sutures or stitches that will be removed within one to two weeks following your arm lift. During your recovery from arm lift surgery, dressings or bandages may be applied to your incisions, and your arms may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling following surgery. The results of arm lift surgery will be long-lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness.
