Arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that is used to reduce excess sagging skin from your arms.
This surgery helps in tightening and smoothening the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the arm.
About The Process
The surgery is carried out under the guidance of an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon wherein the excess fat from the concerned area is removed.
Before the procedure, the surgeon conducts an in depth discussion on how the surgery will take place and any precautions that might need to be taken before and after the treatment.
Recovery time after the procedure is minimal, most patients require only 2 – 3 days of complete rest after the surgery. It is possible to get back to daily activities within 3 – 5 days. However, exercise is not recommended until 2 weeks after your surgery.(Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)
It is important to note that excessive arm movement is to be avoided for the first 4 weeks.
Other common after care practices include:
- Use of compression garment sleeve
- Keeping the operated area dry and clean
- Going for regular dressing changes
- Avoiding any heavy activities for a specified time
