Brachioplasty, or arm lift, is a surgical procedure used to remove excess skin from your arm to your elbow. This procedure helps to reshape the arm and leads to a more proportionate youthful appearance.
In case of extra fat of the arm and without excess skin, liposuction can be effective. On the other hand, in the presence of minimal excess skin, the brachioplasty limited to a single scar in the armpit could be appropriate.
For those with extensive excess skin, traditional brachioplasty will be required. This scar will extend from the elbow to the armpit and in some cases even the chest wall. Preoperative markings will be made and discussed with the patient. The incision, usually is on the inside of the arm. There will be absorbable stitches placed in multiple layers in order to close the incision.
After surgery , you will go home with some steps to follow:
Oral medications for pain control and will be closely monitored from our office.
Keep the arms raised above the level of the heart for a few days, followed by slow return to the usual movements of the arms and hands in a few weeks. The resulting scar will take a year to fully heal, mature and assume its final color.
