Brachioplasty:

Brachioplasty or Arm Lift is a procedure where loose and excess skin is removed from your arm.

Why is Brachioplasty performed?

The problem of loose upper arm skin usually occurs after weight loss. This problem is more common in people who have lost a lot of weight. If you were over weight, the skin of your arm has to stretch to accommodate the increased volume of your upper arm. After weight loss, the skin usually fails to tighten and sags. Brachioplasty is performed to correct this problem of loose hanging skin of your arms.

Who is an ideal candidate for Brachioplasty?

If you have flabby arms or loose hanging flesh (Loose Hammock) or skin as a result of losing lot of weight, then you are an ideal candidate for Brachioplasty.

Who is not an ideal candidate for Brachioplasty?

If you sweat profusely under your arms, have swelling in one or both of your arms, if your lymph glands have been removed then you are not an ideal candidate for Brachioplasty.

What does the procedure for Brachioplasty involve?

Brachioplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure in the plastic surgeon's office under local anesthesia with sedation. The entire procedure of Brachioplasty takes about an hour per arm. The surgeon makes zigzag, elliptical or triangular incisions along the inner surface of upper arm. The space contained between the incisions is exactly the area of skin that would be removed. Removal of loose skin tightens the surface of the arm however, it does not remove the fat. That is why it is usually recommended that Brachioplasty be accompanied with Liposuction as well to remove extra fat from your arms. Make sure that you make arrangements for some one to accompany you as you will be allowed to go home after a couple of hours following Brachioplasty procedure.

How to prepare for Brachioplasty?

Since Brachioplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure, there is no need for hospitalization. Your doctor will ask you to sign a consent form to perform the procedure of Brachioplasty. Make sure that you wear loose clothing when going in for Brachioplasty.

What to expect during the recovery period following Brachioplasty?

A thin rubber drain will be left in after Brachioplasty to draining excess fluids. Recovery from Brachioplasty takes about 2 - 3 weeks. Make sure that you limit the amount of weight you lift after Brachioplasty. Your doctor will advise you to keep your arm elevated with pillows to minimize discomfort following Brachioplasty. The incision will be dressed with an elastic dressing for protection and compression to prevent bruising and swelling. Depending on how you heal, the scars may take any where from 6 months to 2 years to completely resolve, fade and disappear after Brachioplasty.

What is the outcome of Brachioplasty?

The procedure of Brachioplasty will be extremely rewarding to you. After undergoing Brachioplasty, you will gain the self confidence to wear wider variety of clothing like short sleeves or sleeveless tops and bathing suits that you might have avoided to wear in the past before Brachioplasty.

Benefits of Brachioplasty

Brachioplasty will help you get rid of the extra fat and skin after losing weight. Although this requires you to undergo a Brachioplasty procedure, the results are well worth it. To be able to get the lean and shapely arms that you have always longed for, Brachioplasty is the best option available.
