Arm lift

Problems associated with bulky arms or loose skin on the upper arm are common. Loose and saggy skin often results in ‘bingo arms’. These body parts don’t respond well to diet or exercise and require special treatment. People are usually embarrassed about the appearance of the upper arm in this case and need a contouring treatment to fix the problem.
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to reduce the excess loose skin and excess fat of the upper arm, resulting in a more toned and contoured upper arm.
What happens during brachioplasty?
During an arm lift, excess skin and fat are removed from the underarms (between the armpit and elbow). The skin is then draped back to create a more toned look. It may also involve liposuction.
Who is the right candidate?
The right candidate is someone who has an ideal weight range and is a non-smoker.
There could be various reasons for sagging arms including weight loss, aging, or even heredity.
Procedure for Arm Lift: what does it involve?
Before Procedure
1. The plastic surgeon will review your medical history including current and past medical conditions as well as any surgical history.
2. The plastic surgeon will perform a physical examination to examine the undersides of the upper arms and will also take pictures of arms for medical records.
3. The plastic surgeon will discuss the benefits and risks of the procedure, asking as to why you want an arm lift and what you expect from the procedure.
4. If you smoke, it is recommended that you stop smoking before surgery and while recovering.
5. Certain routine tests are performed for fitness before surgery.
During Procedure
1. In most cases, general anesthesia is recommended.
2. The procedure takes around two to three hours.
3. The surgeon will make incisions on the undersides of arms, depending on how much skin is to be removed, the length and pattern of the incision varies.
4. The surgeon will then tighten the underlying tissues and may also perform liposuction to remove unwanted fat.
5. The skin edges are closed using stitches that are beneath the skin and dissolve on their own.
6. Drains are occasionally used to lessen the risk of fluid collection.
7. The arms are wrapped in compression garments to support the arms during healing and help decrease swelling and bruising.
After Procedure
1. Arms will be loosely wrapped in elastic bandages to minimize swelling.
2. Discomfort and some pain will be felt
3. Swelling and bruising are also common and will subside a few days. Sleeping with your arms elevated on pillows for about two weeks is recommended to minimize swelling.
4. Recommended to wear a compression sleeve or bandage for a few weeks after the surgery.
5. Absorbable sutures are generally used, which do not need to be removed.
Risks or complications of arm lift surgery
An arm lift poses various risks, including:
1. Bleeding
2. Infection
3. Poor wound healing
4. Scarring. Incision scars from an arm lift are permanent, but typically placed in areas that aren't easily visible
5. Asymmetrical shape of arms
6. Temporary numbness due to injury to superficial sensory nerves.
7. Damage to blood vessels and muscles
8. Persisting pain
