Arm Lift

Arm Lift surgery in Ahmedabad,Gujarat

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, reduces excess skin and fat of the upper arm. This procedure reshapes your arm between the underarm and the elbow to produce smoother skin and contours, resulting in a more toned and proportionate appearance.

After multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding, many women find it impossible for diet and exercise alone to restore their figures. Fortunately, mothers with permanently altered figures find that a Mommy Makeover in Ahmedabad, gujarat is an excellent solution.

Who is candidate for an arm lift?

Fluctuations in weight, growing older and even heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues and localized fat deposits.

If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you.

  1. Adults with significant upper arm skin laxity
  2. Adults of any age whose weight is relatively stable and who are not significantly overweight
  3. Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that can impair healing or increase risk of surgery
  4. Non-smokers
  5. Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations

Procedures that can make it possible.

Each patient is unique in terms of skin laxity and other factors. Patients may benefit from one or a combination of these techniques.

The most common incision extends from the inner elbow to the axilla, or armpit, and often yields dramatic improvement. This permits the excision to maximally address redundant skin in the middle of the arm. Modification of the incision may be necessary for optimal results. This approach is frequently combined with liposuction to eliminate stubborn fat pockets and loose skin. Most brachioplasty candidates choose this method.

Surgical sculpture involves not just the superficial skin, but also the deeper attachments that have loosened. Patients who have gained and lost large amounts of weight are the best candidates for this procedure.

Patients with minimal skin elasticity may opt for liposuction only. An advantage to this approach is that scarring is minimal. The right candidate can expect significant improvement, but not as dramatic as when skin is removed as well.

A mini-arm lift is an option for patients with excess skin in the uppermost portion of the arm, and for those concerned about scarring. In this case, we make an incision in the armpit, sometimes extending a few inches down the arm.

Arm Lift Recovery

Following your surgery, dressings or bandages may be applied to your incisions, and your arms may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling. A small, thin tube may be tempAakarrily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect. Initial healing usually occurs in 10-14 days. Swelling and bruising gradually disappear over 3-4 weeks. All swelling is gone in 3-6 months. The scars fade in 6-24 months depending on your skin.

Risks Factor

Complications resulting from arm lifts have been rare in our experience. These uncommon risks include infection, slow wound healing, bleeding, seroma and venous blood clots. Even if a complication were to occur, diligent post-operative care would still likely lead to a nice result.

Long Lasting Results

The smoother, tighter contours that result from brachioplasty can dramatically improve both appearance and feel. The results of arm lift surgery will be long-lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness, but most of your improvement should be relatively permanent.

Arm Lift: F.A.Q.

The scar runs posteriorly along the arm from the elbow to the underarm to best hide the incision. The incision may be continued into the underarm and possibly into the upper back, if extra skin extends into those areas.

Most healing takes place during the first several weeks, but the incision continues to heal for at least 12 months following surgery. During this time, the incision will change from a reddish pink to a lighter pink to nearly natural skin color. There are scar management techniques that can improve the final appearance of the scar. A scar management program is started after the incision has healed for three to four weeks and is continued for two months.

Yes, liposuction is almost always done with an arm lift. The purpose of the liposuction is to reduce the volume of arm fat prior to excising skin.

Patients who have redundant skin with poor skin quality are good candidates for an arm lift. Usually these are patients who have experienced massive weight loss, but they can also be those whose genes dictated excessively bulky arms

The surgery for an arm lift takes about three to four hours, depending on the amount of skin removal and liposuction required. Our plastic surgeons often work together in order to decrease operating times and surgical risk. It is done under a general anesthetic and the post-operative recovery is not significantly painful or uncomfortable.

Most patients can return to work in seven to ten days, as long as his/her job does not require a lot of physical activity and exertion. A compression garment is usually worn for the first two weeks following surgery in order to reduce post-operative swelling. If a patient’s work is physically strenuous, they may not be able to return to work for two to six weeks, depending upon the exact nature of his/her job. Although patients may drive a car approximately five to seven days after surgery, formal exercise regimens should not be resumed for six weeks.

Yes, other procedures can be done at the same time. Procedures that are often combined with arm lift surgery include breast lifts, tummy tucks and additional areas of liposuction. We operate together, which gives patients extra skill and expertise when it counts most, resulting in decreased operative times and better results.
