Arm Lift (brachioplasty) is the reduction of excess fat and sagging skin from the upper arms or under arm area. The doctor begins by marking the area of excess skin, with the patient either standing or sitting. Your doctor may offer you the choice between using a local or general anesthesia, but most patients pefer general anesthesia for this procedure. Incisions are made on the inner and under surface of the arm, typically in a zig-zagged line. The pattern of skin removal usually follows an elliptical or triangular shape. Often some fat is suctioned at the same time. The surgical opening may run from the armpit to as low as the elbow.
While the excess skin and fat is removed, the remaining skin is stretched and sutured into place. A drain may be used to lead excess fluids from the incision site, helping the skin to better adhere to the tissue. The incisions are then bandaged and a compression garment is applied to enhance circulation and reduced bruising and swelling. The risks of this procedure include asymmetrical arms and depressions in the skin. Patients will return to work and some normal activities within one to two weeks.
