Brachioplasty – Arm LiftWith age, the skin of the entire body loses its elasticity and firmness, and the area of the arms is no exception. Brachioplasty is a procedure that restores a youthful appearance to your arms.
Brachioplasty, also known as Arm Lift, is a surgical procedure aimed at removing sagging skin and excess subcutaneous fat from the arm area. It is one of the body sculpting procedures that shape and contour the human body. People undergo this plastic surgery procedure when their skin in the arm area becomes loose due to natural aging or as a result of weight loss, especially desired by women after the age of 60. Brachioplasty is often performed in combination with liposuction.
Procedure of BrachioplastyThe surgeon performs the procedure under analgesia in the area between the armpit and elbow, along the inner circumference of the arm, to make the resulting scar as discreet as possible. Subsequently, excess skin and fatty tissue are removed from the area, and the wound is closed with absorbable or regular sutures. In the case of non-absorbable sutures, they will be removed 10 to 14 days after the operation.
Possible postoperative complications after Brachioplasty
- Bruising, swelling, sensitivity, tightness, infection, bleeding, excessive scarring, asymmetry, accumulation of lymphatic fluid, nerve injury, marginal skin necrosis.
