There is nothing more difficult to get rid of than an arm lift, at least until the introduction of modern plastic surgery. New developments are always happening in this area, as technology advances and more doctors focus on more specialized operations. Although most plastic surgeons have the ability to perform standard procedures, it is worth noting that the diversity of the practice requires the selection of a doctor with extensive experience in handling a particular procedure. An arm lift is one of these, and in the right hand (no pun intended), it can be a miracle cure for an annoying arm lift. Sagging skin under the arm is very common, especially for people who have lost weight.
When pounds are dropped and stored fat is disposed of, the remaining skin is sagged due to previously stretched; Unlike the diaphragm and other areas of the body where one can (with a lot of hard work) tighten and tone their skin, the lower arm area is notorious for its resistance to such procedures. It can seem like no matter how hard you try or what you do, the grease stays in place. This can be understandably frustrating and destructive to one’s self-esteem, especially if the patient follows a strict diet and exercise plan. Fortunately, the sagging skin can be removed quickly and effectively with arm lift surgery, making the arm noticeably tight. If you want to say goodbye to those ugly “bat wings”, feel free to contact your local plastic surgeon today about possible arm lift surgery.
All you need to know about arm lift surgery
It is recommended for people who have experienced weight loss or for the elderly, as these individuals are more likely to develop sagging skin under the arms.
The purpose of arm lift surgery is to remove excess skin and fat (lipids), as well as lift / lift an arm and eliminate wrinkles that may be present due to sagging skin.
The surgery is performed by making an incision in the lower part of the arm, and depending on the amount of strips present, this incision can extend into the elbow. The doctor will then perform liposuction to extract any fat in the area before stitching the wound. Again, whether the inserted stitches self-dissolve or will require a follow-up appointment for removal is only up to your doctor’s discretion.
The time it takes to complete the operation varies for each patient, but on average it takes a few hours.
Generally, it takes about 2-3 weeks for full recovery. Since you won’t have a full job of your limbs during this period, it would be a good idea to estimate a longer time off from work. Unless there are unexpected complications, the month of recovery is a safe bet.
