Removes excess skin and fatty tissue
tighten your skin
The arm lift, also called brachioplasty or brachial lift, is a surgical technique whose objective is to correct flaccid and wrinkled arms, eliminating excess skin, sagging and wrinkles located in the upper and inner part of the arms, remodeling from the arm to the elbow.
Aging with the passage of time and weight loss, as a result of obesity surgeries or diets, are the main factors that cause flaccidity in the arms. It is in these cases when an arm lift is recommended.
When a person gains a lot of weight, the skin slowly stretches over time. If you lose a lot of weight, the skin may not have enough elasticity to return to its place.
This can cause additional tissue folds to appear. These are likely to appear under the arm and chin, and on the upper thighs and lower stomach.
These changes may occur after having lost a lot of weight with weight loss surgery.
The arm lift procedure consists in the tightening of the inner arm and the removal of excess skin, beautifying its appearance and recovering its natural firmness.
This surgery is indicated in those patients who have lost a lot of weight, have a very deteriorated skin or have a genetic predisposition.
The arm lift manages to beautify the physical appearance of the arms, eliminating the unsightly appearance of “bat wings”, recovering its natural firmness and increasing the self-esteem of women.
It is aimed at improving the shape and firmness of the arms of those women who wish to:
In order to be more effective, if the interested person is thinking of losing more weight, it is better to postpone the operation until the desired weight has been achieved.
The arm lift operation is not recommended as a method for the elimination of excess fat, since liposuction exists for that purpose.
Liposuction alone eliminates unsightly fat deposits in those areas where the skin has a good elasticity, being able to adapt itself naturally to the new contours of the arms.
In cases where skin elasticity is poor, a combination of liposuction techniques and arm lift is the appropriate solution.
