Brachioplasty procedure is also called as upper Arm Lift Surgery. During this procedure, excess fat and skin are removed from upper arm to give out the desired contour. Patients who have gone through mastectomy surgery (removal of the whole breast) may not be eligible to undergo an upper arm lift surgery, because of an increased risk of armpit infections.
Can Liposuction Be An Option For An Upper Arm Lift Surgery?
Liposuction cannot be considered as an option for an Arm Lift Surgery because this procedure is related to extracting unnecessary fat that is accumulated under skin for a designated area. To deal with excessive or loose skin, Arm Lift Surgery is the best option.
Arm Lift Surgery is usually performed under General Anesthesia.
The disadvantage with this procedure is that it leaves a scar from the elbow to the armpit. Usually patients are happy with the scar, because they feel it is better to have a scar than to have saggy skin on their complete arm.
Recovery After An Arm Lift Surgery:
Usually patients are discharged on same day itself. It is mostly considered as a day care surgery.
Precautions While Considering An Arm Lift Surgery:
The patients should not consume aspirin, Advil, Motrin or any other product which has aspirin related drugs for two weeks. Individuals who are into smoking should stop smoking for quick healing process.
Improvement can be seen in about 14 days after the procedure has been implemented. Overall it will take 6 months of time where scars have completely matured. COSMOSURE is the right place to get this arm lift surgery done.
