How does it help the sagging upper arm?

A Brachioplasty, or Arm Lift in simple terms, is a cosmetic treatment that is surgically performed to tighten and contour the skin and tissue in the upper arm to appear more defined. For individuals who wish to reshape their upper arm and want to get rid of loose or excess fat due to either weight loss or simply the natural effects of ageing, an arm lift procedure is for you.

Benefits are:

  • Reduce pocket of fat
  • Removes excess skin
  • Tighten supportive tissue
  • Smoothen the remaining skin
  • Improves and defines an upper arm

Types of Brachioplasty

Minimal Incision Brachioplasty

A mini-arm lift is a good procedure for someone with minimal skin laxity, most loose sagging is only inside the armpit. Because it is just a small incision in your armpit, the scar is smaller. Individuals with larger pockets of fat or loose skin are not a good candidate for this kind of treatment.

Full Brachioplasty

This arm lift process removes both fat and skin from the armpit to the elbow. This is ideal for people who have mild to severe laxity in the upper arms following significant weight loss. It can be carried out by your surgeon on the inner or posterior part of your upper arm.

Extended Brachioplasty

This has the most powerful results of all the arm reduction surgery. Being the sections of skin that are generally larger, an upper arm lift may be advised for you if you shed the upper arm skin due to significant weight reduction. The surgeon will, however, make a long incision from your elbow to the armpit up to your chest wall. The size of the incision will be based on how wide your loose skin and fat are.

The Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) Procedure

What do I need to know?

Brachioplasty at work

A Brachioplasty works by surgically removing pocket fat and loose or saggy skin on the upper part of your arms, to make them more defined. The surgery is typically performed on individuals with poor skin elasticity because they are drastically losing weight or because of ageing effects. The incision of your Brachioplasty will depend on how wide is the treated area. The usual cut is from your armpit to your elbow up to your chest wall.

What does Brachioplasty do?

A Brachioplasty is great for removing unwanted fat, and loose and sagging skin on your upper arm. It can make your arm look slimmer and firmer, as well as younger. You can already wear short sleeves or sleeveless after the surgery. You will also gain psychological and social benefits because you are no longer shy and are able to interact with others. No need to hide anymore!

The key steps

What can I expect during the treatment?

Once you pass the laboratory results and your doctor's advice that you are good to go for the surgery, then, you are all set! On the day of your surgery, a local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia will be given to you, for your relaxed and comfortable during the surgery. You will be given antibiotics during and after the surgery to help avoid infections. Your surgeon will start to cut the back side or inside part of your upper arm. After the incision has been made, your surgeon will start the removal of your extra fat and skin, and then your surgeon will close the supportive tissue and incisions using sutures. They will also use sterile gauze on your arm to cover the wound to help avoid infection.

What happens after Brachioplasty surgery?

A tube may need to be put underneath your skin to drain the fluid from your wound. You will experience pain, and that is normal because of the incision; it can be managed by pain medicines. You can eat already, as long as you are ready, but you may be required to stay overnight in the hospital for observations. Your surgeon will provide care guide instructions; you should strictly follow them to avoid infections or complications.

Safety and Comfortability

Is it safe?

The most common side effects from a Brachioplasty can be the same as from any other surgery, as it is an invasive procedure with general anaesthesia. Your surgeon will eliminate the redundant fat and tissues in your arm via an incisional plane from your underarm to your elbow. The incision made by your doctor will leave a wound that can cause common side effects like bleeding, infection, numbness, and a tingling sensation, as well as nerve pain. It is very important to select an experienced and reputed surgeon in Brachioplasty. Book an appointment.

Is Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) painful?

Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure and your surgeon will create an incision to perform the surgery, and because of that, you may feel uncomfortable before, during, and after the process. Your surgeon will administer a local or general anaesthesia, to make you feel more relaxed and comfortable. The pain normally lasts for about 2 to 3 days after your surgery. To lessen the pain you are experiencing, you may take a pain medicine that your doctor has prescribed.

General Guidelines

How many sessions do I need?

You just need one surgery to get your desired results from Brachioplasty. If you are unhappy with the result after your healing period, you should call your doctor right away to discuss your concerns. Your doctor may suggest surgery to revise your results. Non-surgical procedures which you may be advised for are laser, ultrasound or radiofrequency treatments. These will improve your upper arm more.

Can Brachioplasty be combined with other treatments?

Yes, you may opt to have other treatment with Brachioplasty. Those treatments you can include are, liposuction, breast lift, and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), it will help you to complete your body contouring plan and get the full results. Speak to your surgeon about any plan you may have.

Post-treatment guidelines to follow

When should I contact my doctor after the surgery?

A wound will be left after the incision has been made because Brachioplasty is performed surgically. You have to watch for any symptoms that may occur and report them immediately to your surgeon. If you are experiencing problems like abnormal swelling, too much bleeding, and pain that cannot be managed by pain medications, if you have a fever and discharge on the incision site, it might be a sign of infection. If you are not able to keep fluids due to vomiting and you feel numbness in your arms or hands, call your doctor right away!

When can I return to work?

This usually depends on the type of work you do, some patients are comfortable to return to work 2 weeks after the surgery. A little longer leave of absence may be necessary for more physically demanding jobs. Your doctor will provide a clearance whether you can return to work or not, it still depends on your condition and healing progress.

Brachioplasty Before & Afters

The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide

In addition to general ageing, an excess of skin on the underside of the arms (or indeed the upper legs) can often be the result of an extreme bodily change such as pregnancy, illness or particularly rapid weight loss - such as with bariatric surgery. Arm Lifts were borne of this common complaint, helping reverse skin elasticity and rid any uncomfortable excess skin…

Brachioplasty After
Brachioplasty Before

Feeling self-conscious about your bare arms is not only restrictive, but also downright uncomfortable. Perhaps you feel the need to accompany that lovely new party dress with a frumpy bolero jacket or are enduring long-sleeved tops, even throughout the sweltering summer heat? You should just put in some more time in the gym, right?

Brachioplasty After
Brachioplasty Before

Actually, wrong. With age, fat naturally begins to accumulate around the underside of the arms. A dwindling supply of youthful proteins which keep the skin taut and extended sun exposure can mean that even those who have never struggled with their weight can find that wrinkling and sagging becomes a problem in this area.

Brachioplasty After
Brachioplasty Before

Unfortunately, all of the lifting creams, stimulating massages and weight-lifting classes in the world cannot undo serious damage to skin elasticity. But not to panic - that's where we come in. Brachioplasty is the go-to procedure for those that feel the more tame approaches to skincare are just no longer cutting the mustard.

Brachioplasty Essentials

Prepare
Before Brachioplasty

How do you prep your body?

In an arm lift consultation, your doctor will evaluate the current condition of your health and you will be asked to undergo some lab work like chest X-rays and electrocardiograms. They may also give you some preoperative medications to take, and adjust the dosage of your current medications and supplements before the arm reduction surgery. Lastly, you have to quit smoking one or two months before your operation to avoid the slowing down of healing.

Recovery
After Brachioplasty

How do I take care of the treated part?

The fluid that accumulates under the skin needs to be drained via a tube placed in the wound for several days after your arm reduction surgery. You also have to wear compression garments to help your skin adhere to underlying muscles. Do not shift weight or raise heavy items, as it can cause your stitches to open which might result in poor wound healing. Rest and raise your hands around the cushion, and follow your surgeon's order in proper healing care.

Prevent
After Brachioplasty

How do I maintain the results?

Brachioplasty results can last longer if you maintain a stable weight, exercise regularly, avoid sun exposure, drink plenty of water, and eat healthy food.
