The skin of the upper arms can start to sag as we age, or as a result of weight loss. And sometimes the upper arms have hard-to-shift fat deposits. This excess fat and loose skin can cause the arms to chafe against the body and also make wearing some clothes difficult.
In these cases Mr Kode will recommend an Arm Lift, otherwise known as Brachioplasty, which can help restore youthful streamlined contours to the arms. Depending on the site needing re-contouring, Mr Kode will make the incision along the inner arm from armpit to just below the elbow, or along the back of the arm, so the scar is concealed when the arms are beside the body. Sometimes a smaller incision is made in the armpit.
Mr Kode may perform Liposuction to remove excess fat and tighten underlying tissue with internal stitches. The procedure can be performed in day surgery and in most cases, downtime is usually around a week. A compression garment should be worn while your arms are healing and you should notice smoother, tighter upper arm contours and improved skin texture once swelling and bruising has settled down.
Depending on the patient’s needs, Mr Kode may recommend that Arm Lift Surgery be done in conjunction with Abdominoplasty.
