The sagging and loose skin on the arms are one of the biggest discomforts for women. This problem is more noticeable with sleeveless clothing. Even by doing sports regularly, skin care and weight control are not enough to stop aging. Patients who are very discontent by the loose and sagging skin on their arms can have arm lift surgery done. The purpose of the surgery is not only to make the arms thinner but also to make them tighter and look younger.
How is arm lift performed?
The surgical technique to be performed is decided by the surgeon considering the amount of sagging skin and the thickness of the adipose(fat) tissue. If the sagging occurs due to weight loss, firstly liposuction is applied and then the excess skin is removed surgically. Sometimes sagging skin is very subtle near the armpit, in this case the surgeon can perform the operation by making a small incision in the axilla which is aesthetically better. However in most cases the sagging occurs starting from the axilla towards the elbow, therefore an incision is made in the inner arm from the axilla to the elbow but it can not be noticed easily from the front and the back after the surgery.
Recovery after arm lift surgery
It is performed usually under general anesthesia or sedation. Incision is stitched up and a light dressing is made by the surgeon. The patient can return to the daily life on the 4th or 5th day and 1 week after all the stitches heal. After an arm lift surgery, patient has to wear a compression corset for arms. Therefore all the stitches heal better and the skin adapts easier. Patient can achieve the final result in 6 months mark.
