    What is Arm Lift Surgery

    An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to reshape and enhance the appearance of the upper arms. This procedure is ideal for individuals who have excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow, often resulting from significant weight loss, aging, or genetic factors. An arm lift restores a more toned and proportionate appearance to the arms, enhancing both the look and the confidence. At London Private Hospital, we provide a comprehensive approach to ensure optimal results and patient satisfaction.

    Why Choose Brachioplasty?

    Choose brachioplasty and transform your upper arms. Brachioplasty will reduce that slack skin and fat, fix the surrounding tissue, and redefine the upper arm’s extent. Not only will this surgery improve how your biceps and triceps look, but it will also make you more comfortable exhibiting them in public.

    About Arm Lift Surgery

    Arm lift surgery is completed under general anesthesia and calls for typically approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete the procedure. The surgeon will place incisions around the inner arm, running from the elbow to the underarm. Then, eliminate the excess sagging skin and fatty tissue from the arms, formerly repositioning and tightening the tissues to get smoother, more toned arms. The pattern and length of the incisions might differ upon how much or where the skin and kept fat require to be removed. Many patients return home the same day, and our surgeons perform advanced surgical procedures to help guarantee that scarring is minimal and the results are natural-looking.

    Side Effects / Complications

    Although brachioplasty is considered a low-risk procedure, it is important to familiarize yourself with potential side effects and complications. Generally, patients who have undergone an armlift experience swelling, bruising, or moderate to severe discomfort in their upper arms for a few weeks, after which they subside. Although our surgeons do everything possible to ensure that the incisions are barely noticeable and heal properly, the emergence of scarring is almost unavoidable. Moreover, London Private Hospital kneels down our patients with postoperative care guidelines to assist in recovery and minimize potential adverse impacts.

    Is Arm Lift Surgery the Right Option for You?

    Based on the above-mentioned information, you can decide whether arm lift surgery is the right solution. Here are the factors to consider:

    • Do you have problems with saggy skin on the arms? If there is loose skin in the arm’s areas and no exercise or diet can help improve it, this process may be essential to attain toned arms.
    • How is your physical health? Candidates need to be generally healthy adults without medical conditions that may impede healing processes.
    • Elasticity of your skin. Good skin elasticity allows the skin to wrap around the arms after the operation.
    • What outcomes do you expect? Although this procedure can enhance the appearance of your arms, scarring is inevitable, and you should have reasonable expectations.
    • Do you lead a healthy lifestyle? Perfect candidates are former or non-smokers since smoking can severely affect the healing process.

    Arm Lift Aftercare and Recovery

    Recovery and aftercare are crucial aspects of achieving the best possible results from an arm lift. Following the surgery, it’s important to follow all post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon to minimize the risk of complications. Wear compression garments as recommended to reduce swelling and support your arms as they heal.

    You will be advised to keep your arms elevated when possible to decrease swelling and to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for several weeks to ensure that the incisions heal properly. Attend follow-up appointments with your surgeon to monitor your progress and address any concerns you may have.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does the recovery process take after an arm lift?

    Recovery typically takes one to two weeks. It would help if you rested appropriately and avoid vigorous physical activity. Most swelling and bruising should subside during the initial two weeks, but it may take several months to a full recovery and the final results.

    Will there be visible scars after the surgery?

    All incisions are made along the inner arm so they can be hidden well. As a rule, scars progressively diminish and become almost unnoticeable within a few months to years. In addition to the upper arms, an arm lift may be performed in conjunction with other body contouring procedures.

    Who is an ideal candidate for this type of surgery?

    Ideal candidates for the surgery are in good form, realistic expectations of surgery, and disproportionate loose skin or fat deposits along the upper arm that cannot be addressed by exercise or diet.
