What is arm lift?
The sagging and looseness in the arm create a very bad appearance in terms of aesthetics. As a result of genetic factors, aging, rapid weight gain and loss, the arms may sag. The procedures performed to remove these sagging, to recover the skin and to obtain a taut skin constitute arm lift surgery. Before the arm lift surgery is performed, examinations and analyzes are performed on the patient. It can be done with general or local anesthesia. If necessary, liposuction is performed first, and then the excess skin on the arm is surgically removed. A line-shaped scar is formed in the arm, but over time, it becomes less visible, if not completely invisible, by taking the skin color. The patient is usually discharged on the same day or the next day.
Who can have arm lift treatment done?
The surgery is applied to people who have sagging arm skin due to weight loss or aging. If there is any chronic disease or regular drug use, the patient should tell the doctor before the operation.
After the operation, the arm circumference is wrapped with a bandage. Dressings are done, the stitches do not need to be removed because they are aesthetic stitches. The patient may feel pain while making arm movements in the first days, but the painkillers prescribed by the doctor will help reduce the pain. The patient can return to his daily life after an average of 7 days, but he/she should avoid heavy arm movements for about 1 month.
