How Is an Arm Lift Performed?
Arm lift in turkey is performed under either local or general anesthesia, depending on the surgical method the surgeon chooses. There are a few types of brachioplasty, which are chosen depending on the extent of sagging skin and excess fat and skin elasticity.
After making the incisions, the surgeon will tighten your loose skin and secure it over your muscles. If you want to remove excess fat on your upper arms, liposuction or excision may be used. Then, the excess skin will be strategically trimmed away. The result will be a newly contoured region. This procedure may take 2 to 3 hours to complete.
During the consultation, the surgeon will discuss your needs and goals for your brachioplasty procedure and create a personalized surgical plan.
Different Types of Brachioplasty
The types of brachioplasty we offer include:
Standard or Full Arm Lift
If you have a large amount of sagging skin with poor elasticity on your entire upper arms, a standard or full arm lift is best suited for you. This type of arm lift uses an incision from the armpit down to the elbow. The incision can be placed along the underside or back of the arm.
Extended Arm Lift
If you have loose skin underneath your arms and along the sides of your chest due to a significant amount of weight, extended brachioplasty may be needed. This type of an arm lift is similar to the standard arm lift, but the incision is longer, extending down on the body to include loose skin above the flanks along the side of the chest wall.
Limited-incision or Mini Arm Lift
If you have moderate amounts of fat and loose skin a mini arm lift can be an effective option to correct it. In this technique, a short incision is made within the armpit. The shorter incision usually results in a faster operation and quicker recovery.
It should be pointed out that using liposuction and one of the techniques above at the same time is very common in a brachioplasty procedure. It provides the most ideal result for those with both excess fat pockets and loose skin.
Arm Lift in turkey istanbul with Liposuction Only
Liposuction works best for patients with good skin elasticity, little to no excess skin, and a small amount of stubborn fat under their arms. This procedure requires a small incision and short recovery time.
What Is Recovery Like After an Arm Lift?
After a brachioplasty procedure, you will receive dressings over your incisions and will need to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling. The surgeon might also insert a temporary thin tube in your arm to drain excess fluid or blood and help prevent fluid build-up. Don’t worry. The surgeon will give you post-operative care instructions.
Bruising and soreness are common conditions after surgery. Any pain or discomfort can be controlled with medication. These symptoms will likely subside after a week. Swelling is also normal during brachioplasty recovery. It may not fully subside for a few months after the procedure.
You will be able to return to work and resume some activities after 7 to 14 days. Within 6 weeks, you can return to your normal activity level, but you should refrain from heavy lifting for 2 months.
It’s vital to avoid smoking while you recover from your brachioplasty. Smoking slows down the healing process and increases the risk of developing permanent scarring or infections.
