Arm Lift Surgery

What is Arm Lift Surgery?

Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess fat and sagging skin in the upper arm and armpit area.

What are the Causes of Sagging and Fat in the Arm Area?

Sagging in the arm area usually occurs as a result of aging and excessive weight gain and loss.

How is Arm Lift Surgery Performed?

The purpose of arm lift surgery is to obtain a fit upper arm appearance. Incision length varies depending on how much skin and fat is removed. In patients with a relatively better skin form, only a small incision may be sufficient. However, in patients with excessively oily and sagging skin, an incision extending from the armpit to the elbow will need to be made.

What should be taken into consideration before arm lift surgery?

Patients who smoke should stop using tobacco products at least 3-4 weeks before surgery. Patients who consume alcohol should also stop consuming alcohol one week before surgery. It is also necessary to stop taking anti-inflammatory and blood thinning medications about a week before arm lift surgery. You can continue normal exercise and daily routines until the time of surgery.

Arm lift surgery is a surgery performed under general anesthesia. First of all, a detailed examination is performed and it is decided how the surgery will be performed. Then, a series of tests are performed along with blood tests to determine whether there is any obstacle to surgery.
