An upper arm lift also referred to as Brachioplasty, reshapes the upper arm to tighten loose skin and remove fat that often creates a ‘wing’ appearance right under the arm. Liposuction is usually used in combination to achieve the best results.

Are you the right candidate for an upper arm lift?

After losing a big amount of weight and embarking on a program of vigorous exercise, you’ll find that you simply have loose, hanging underarm skin. Although you’ll improve your upper-arm appearance with exercise, this redundant underarm skin remains a drag that doesn’t improve with exercise. The subsequent are some common reasons why you’ll want to think about an upper arm lift:

  • You have reached the target weight, but are left with flabby or redundant underarm skin.
  • You are an adult with significant upper arm skin laxity because of aging.
  • Your weight is comparatively stable and you aren’t significantly overweight. Stable weight is the key for mommy makeover operations as well.
  • You are a healthy woman or man with no medical conditions that could impair healing or increase surgery risks.
  • You are willing to simply accept a scar in exchange for shapelier arms.

How is an Upper Arm Lift procedure performed?

Before the arm tightening surgery, your surgeon will do the markings on your elbows, arms and armpits. The placement, length and direction of those incision lines will be dictated by the type of Upper Arm Lift you will undergo.
You will receive general anaesthesia and therefore the surgeon will make the required incisions to get rid of excess skin and fat.
The incisions could also be completely concealed within the armpits or extended down the inside of the arms within the most inconspicuous locations possible. Your surgeon may use liposuction as an adjunct to get rid of the excess fat.

After the incisions are made, your surgeon will remove the extra skin and fat with the assistance of Liposuction and bring the incisions together to deliver a firmer and smoother arm contour.
After 2-3 hours, the skin is smoothed over the new contour of your arm.
Your surgeon will close the incisions carefully to try to minimize scarring. Your sutures can also be placed beneath the skin, where they are going to be gradually absorbed by your body. A sterile dressing and a compression garment is going to be applied and drains may be placed.

The goal of our plastic surgeons and therefore the entire staff are to assist you to achieve the most effective result and make your surgical experience as easy and cozy as possible. 

What are your options for an Arm lift in Turkey?

Your options are going to be dictated by your skin quality and the extent of excess underarm fat and skin. Your surgeon will help you make the proper choice based on your anatomy and preferences. 

Liposuction:

Arm liposuction is also an option that stands for you if your skin has enough elasticity to shrink around the remaining tissues after your fat is being removed. If your skin has poor elasticity, tissue sagging can become more visible after fat is removed. Liposuction can also be used as an adjunct for fat removal during a standard Upper Arm tuck procedure. 

Limited-incision Upper Arm Lift:

If excess hanging skin is located near the armpit, your surgeon may be able to pull up and tuck this excess skin into the armpit. This works best if you’ve got loose, crepe-like skin in the lower inner arm area near the armpit and don’t have an excessive amount of excess adipose tissue. 

Standard Upper Arm Lift: 

If your excess skin extends sort of a bat wing from the armpit to the elbow, the sole option is the complete removal of the arm flab during a standard Brachioplasty. Pain medications play an important role in the recovery process. 

Extended Upper Arm Lift:

An extended arm skin tightening surgery is comparable to a typical Brachioplasty, except that the incision is extended along the arm right down to the body to include loose skin and adipose tissue that may be slightly below the arm area side of the chest wall. Loose skin in that area is a common thing in patients who have had massive weight loss. 

How my upper arm lift incisions and scars will be seen after the surgery?

Arm lift Surgery Recovery

Upper arm lift scars vary counting on the amount of excess tissue you’ve got and also the elasticity of your skin. Even patients who undergo a standard Upper Arm loose skin surgery, which ends up in larger scars, are usually quite satisfied with the results. You can return to work in 14 days if your board certified plastic surgeons allow you to do so. 

Liposuction Scarring

Because liposuction incisions are small, the scars also are small. Most liposuction scars will be faded and are barely perceptible over time. Post operative, you will have minimal incision for your arm liposuction.

Limited-incision Upper Arm Lift Scarring

Your scars will presumably be limited to the underarm areas. Arm lift recovery is easier on this procedure compared to other ones.

Standard Upper Arm Lift Scarring

Incisions are usually placed on the inside of the arm and may extend from the axilla (underarm) to just above the elbow.

Extended Upper Arm Lift Scarring

The standard Brachioplasty incision is extended along the arm down to the body to correct loose skin and adipose tissue under the arm area.
