Arm lift: procedure
Arm lift or Brachioplasty is a very common procedure that is requested by a large number of people. The operation lasts about two hours under general anesthesia with one night of hospitalization after the operation. Brachioplasty consists in removing the amount of excess skin that is usually located on the inner side of the arms. In most cases, this procedure is combined with liposuction to remove excess fat.
- Before Surgery : At least two consultations with the surgeon are recommended two weeks before the day of the operation. During these meetings, the surgeon carries out medical photographs of the arms as well as a detailed assessment in order to decide the type of dermolipectomy of the arms. It is necessary to stop smoking and make a waxing with cream or wax in the armpits.
- The Surgery : Arm lift can be painful and it is performed by an experienced practitioner and its duration does not exceed two hours.
- After the operation, the surgeon puts on a bandage which will be removed after two weeks. A little pain is felt after the arm lift. Sports activities are strongly discouraged at least 1 month after the intervention.
The scars disappear over time (around 6 months). Thus, the results are immediately noticed, but it takes about 6 to 12 months to observe the final result.
