 Brachioplasty

Sometimes people are too concerned about how they look. Some people are very particular about their sagging arms. Usually, people who have experienced tremendous weight loss experience sagging of the upper arms. Growing old is also a factor why the skin on the underarms droops down. While exercise might tighten the underarm skin, it does not bring back its elasticity.

If you wanted to have your arm lifted immediately and exercise wouldn’t do the trick, you may want to resort to Brachioplasty.

Brachioplasty which is commonly called an arm lift is usually performed to reshape the upper arms. This procedure is done to eliminate or reduce the skin that sags from the arms. 

Patients who will undergo underarm surgery must be fit and healthy. He/she must have no serious medical conditions prior to the procedure. Plus, the patient should be oriented as to the procedure and possible outcome of the surgery.

Before the procedure commence, the surgeon will brief the patients of the pre-operation routines the patient has to do. He/she will be advised as to the requirements and dietary guidelines the patient has to adhere to. Usually the surgeon will try to find out about the patients medical history, complications, medications and allergies.

The operation will start with marking the part to be operated. Then the excess skin will be removed afterwards. Usually, a liposuction is required to eliminate the fats. The muscles of the upper arm are tightened with stitches to define the contour of the arm. There may be bruising and swelling soon after. Pain and discomfort is also unavoidable.

After the operation, the patient is required to have proper rest and must not do heavy jobs for at least a month. Wearing a compression garment may be required to be worn for weeks.

In the end, the patient is expected to cooperate for faster recovery. Proper diet and exercise are also needed for a beautiful physique.
