Arm Lift

WHAT IS ARM LIFT SURGERY AND WHAT ARE THE GOALS?

Strength loss of arm muscles, sagging skin and loss of elasticity, cracks may occur after delivery, excessive or fast weight loss-gain, bariatric surgery (gastric bypass surgery). These saggings disturb the individual quite a bit and affect the individual’s clothing choices and social life. Some of those saggings are between the shoulders and elbows. These deformities can be removed by the arm lift surgery and an aesthetical appearance is obtained.

If it is thought to be only excessive fat, this condition can be removed with various liposuction procedures. If the level of sagging and excessive tissue is high and liposuction procedures are non-functional, arm lift procedure is needed.

HOW ARE THE PERIOPERATIVE AND POSTOPERATIVE PERIODS OF ARM LIFT SURGERY?

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes 1-2 hours and it is carried out by removing the sagging skin and excessive fat tissue from the elbow up to shoulder line. A day of hospitalization is needed. After operation, bandage is applied. The individual can turn back to normal life in a week. The patient is mobilized 3-4 hours later after the surgery. 4 weeks later, sports can be started except the exercises including heavy arm movements.

HOW ARE THE SCARS OF ARM LIFT SURGERY?

Since absorbable sutures are used in abdominal lift surgeries, there is no need for suture removal. Surgical scars on skin become hardly visible over time. Nonetheless, wound healing varies from person to person. In very rare cases, excessive wound healing (keloid, hypertrophic scar) may occur.

However, permanence of the performed procedure depends on the patient. For a permanent aesthetical result, it is very important for patients not to gain weight and to do sports regularly.
