Do you have flabby arms? An arm lift (sometimes called brachioplasty) can tighten the skin around the upper arm. This cosmetic surgery involves removing excess fat, usually through liposuction, and then tightening loose, sagging skin. Your arm will look more defined, and you will lose any localized, stubborn fat pockets on the upper arms.
Are you a candidate for an Arm Lift?
This procedure may be right for you if you have loose or sagging skin on your upper arms. This can be caused by dramatic weight loss, or loss of elasticity because of ageing. Usually this skin issue can’t be fixed by exercise.
Arm lifts are meant to correct sagging skin, so if you have a lot of excess fat in the upper arm, you are a better candidate for liposuction. However, many plastic surgery Singapore clinics will use both treatments, or include other skin tightening procedures like Thermage.
Recovery and Healing
After the procedure, your aesthetics surgeon will apply bandages or dressings to the incision, and instruct you to wear a compression garment to help manage swelling. He may also leave a small tube that will drain out any blood or fluid (don’t worry, this will be removed at your follow up checkup). You will also be given instructions on how to care for the wound and medications to fight infections and relieve any discomfort.
Depending on your medical history, your doctor will let you know what precautions you may need to take as your wound heals. In general you will be told to avoid to lift anything heavy, and may have to refrain from driving for a few days.
You will have a scar on the underside of your arm, which will fade after about a year.
