What is Brachioplasty or Arm Lift?

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:

  • Improve the body contour of sagging skin on the arms.
  • Reduce the volume of the arms after a significant weight reduction.
  • Promote confidence in wearing certain garments such as sweaters and short-sleeved shirts.
  • But in addition to the aesthetic aspect, this surgery also means an increase in women’s health, since it improves the capacity of movement of the arms, avoiding chafing and increases the hygienic aspects in the area.
  • Improve self-esteem.
  • This intervention can be combined with other surgeries such as liposculpture.

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.

What is not a brachioplasty or brachial lifting?

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.

The preoperative flaccid arm lift procedure

In preparation for the arm lift, Dr. Puig may ask you:

  • Laboratory tests or a medical evaluation.
  • Stop taking certain medications or adjust your current medications.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications and herbal supplements, as they may increase bleeding.

After the initial examination, Dr. Julio Puig will explain what the procedure consists of and what the postoperative period is like.

Who is a good candidate for this surgery?

In general a good candidate for the arm lift is one that:

  • Is physically healthy.
  • It has realistic expectations of what can be achieved with the operation.
  • Is a non-smoker or at least stop smoking when the surgeon instructs.
  • Actually, your arms cause discomfort and discomfort when walking, exercising … as well as concern for your appearance.

The arm lift, as well as any other surgery is a very personal procedure, and therefore the person who is thinking about it, must do it by itself, not to satisfy the wishes of another person, or to try to Adapt to any type of ideal image.

The decision is very personal, and the person who is thinking about it, must decide whether the benefits they will achieve will match their goals, as well as whether the risks and potential complications of cosmetic surgery are acceptable.

The first visit to the surgeon

During the consultation we will evaluate:

  • The surgical goals of the arm lift intervention.
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments.
  • Medicines, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco ..
  • If there are previous surgeries.

In addition, we will evaluate your general health, as well as pre-existing health conditions or risk factors, take photographs, discuss possible options more suitable to achieve your goals, the existence of other non-surgical alternatives, the results of the arm lift procedure, and any risk or potential complication.

The success and safety of the procedure depends to a large extent on the complete sincerity during your consultation. You will be asked a series of questions about your health, desires and lifestyle.

It is very important to understand all aspects of this surgery. It is natural to feel some anxiety, whether it is emotion because of your new look or a little preoperative stress before the arm lift. Do not be shy about talking about these feelings with your plastic surgeon.

After the initial examination, Dr. Julio Puig will explain what the intervention consists of, if you need preparation and how it is the recovery.
