Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)

Ageing, weight loss and gravity, can lead to sagging of the back and inner parts of the arms. The amount of fat tissue accumulated with sagging varies from person to person. Therefore, each patient should be evaluated individually. Arm lift surgery (Brachioplasty) can be performed alone or in conjunction with other body contouring surgeries. Since scars will form on the arm as a result of this surgery, it is an intervention recommended for people with significant deformation.

Elliptical skin and fat tissues are removed through an incision made downwards from the armpit.

The first two days after the operation is the period when the body has edema. During this period, excess fluids build up inside the body and movements become difficult. Generally, from the third day, edema begins to decrease and movements become easier.

From the second week after the surgery, the patients are allowed to return to their social life gradually. However, it is expected that heavy work using arms for six weeks should be avoided.

Even after two years, a skin-colored surgical scar remains in the operation area. This mark is in the visible area, so it is necessary to wear long-sleeved clothes if the patient wishes to hide it.
