Arm Aesthetics – Arm Lifting Surgery
The purpose of arm aesthetics is to have a tight arm structure. The beautiful upper arm and shoulder area is always a sign of youth and athletic build.
Shoulder and arm décolleté are as important as the decollete area of the chest. This area is active. For this reason, too much fat does not occur. If the patient is over his ideal weight, there may be fattening. Due to the moving parts of the body such as the inner legs, they are prone to skin loosening. It is aesthetically appreciated that the arm has taut skin, sagging and thinness as much as possible.
The thickness of the arm area is reduced by removing fat from this area.
How Is Performed?
Fat removal from the arm area is one of the places where liposuction is most beneficial. In this process, fat can be taken from the inner part of the arm, from the outer area, even from the shoulder area.
However, in order for the procedure to be successful, the tightness of the arm skin must be good. If there is some looseness in the skin, vaser or laser procedure can be applied to tighten the arm skin. These procedures can be performed alone or combined with fat removal from other parts of the body.
If there is too much looseness in the arm skin and skin sagging has occurred, this time, enough thinning and tension in the arm area cannot be achieved without removing the sagging skin. At this stage, arm lift surgery should be performed. Sagging may occur in the arm skin after advanced age or excessive weight gain and weight loss. Sagging of the skin disturbs the patients.
A beautiful arm is athletic from the elbow. It has a thin skin. Shoulder muscles are prominent. The lower part of the arm and the back of the shoulder are elegant and slim. There is no oil in these areas.
In some patients, no matter how much weight they lose, there is not enough thinning in the arm area. Genetic factors also play a role in the thick upper arm section in these patients. Generally, people with broad shoulders but not very tall have thick arms.
Arm lift surgery is a skin removal procedure. Like all skin removal procedures, it leaves a scar. If the arm skin is sagging only in the armpit area, it is possible to remove the sagging of this area by removing only the skin from the armpit.
But generally, the sagging starts from the armpit and extends to the elbow area. In these patients, full arm lift surgery should be performed. In this surgery, a stitch scar extending from the armpit to the elbow is formed. The stitch scar remains on the inside of the arm and is not visible from the back or the front when standing. It takes about six months for this scar to mature and become less visible.
How Does The Arm Lift Aesthetics Process Work?
Arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. It takes about two hours. Before the operation, the standing arms are lifted at the level of the shoulders and the amount of sagging skin is determined. Drawings are made. During the operation, excess arm skin is removed according to this plan. If there is excess fat accumulation when necessary, fat tissues are also removed. After the operation, the patient stays in the hospital for one night. He is discharged the next day.
There are no restrictions on the use of hands after surgery. It is normal to have mild swelling in the hands for the first few days. During this period, the hands are kept slightly elevated while in the lying position.
Arm corset extending from armpit to elbows is worn for 3 weeks postoperatively.
Bathing is allowed three days after surgery. During the postoperative period, the patient feels some tension in his arms. But it is not painful after surgery. Arm lift surgery is the most effective method for removing the sagging arm skin. The results of the surgery are permanent and the satisfaction rate is high. Therefore, it is especially recommended for patients who have lost excessive weight or who have excessive sagging arm skin.
