Arm lift
Madrid | Zurich

With ageing, subcutaneous fat deposits grow and the arm’s skin elasticity diminishes becoming saggy. This situation may cause lack of self-confidence and the need to hide this body area. Brachioplasty or arm lift restores a youthful, attractive and smooth look and feel.

The arm lift intervention delivers immediate results, highly satisfying our patients’ expectations and needs.

Arm lift surgical techniques

Usually, the arm lift procedure or brachioplasty, is performed combining a liposuction with excess skin removal. Liposuction is an excellent intervention prior to removing excess skin. There are several techniques for optimising the arm contour, each one of these techniques will produce varying scar lengths and locations. Additionally, different treatments can be applied, using advanced specialized technology, to stimulate collagen production, improving skin elasticity and texture.

Where is the scar located after an arm lift procedure?

Our arm lift techniques leave minimal scars. For instance, the semi-circular incision in the unidimensional arm lift, is performed in the underarm crease.

Patients with a larger volume of excess skin, will require a lengthier incision along the inside of the upper arm (bi-dimensional), concealed by the natural arm posture.

To highly minimise scar visibility, a comprehensive skin care treatment will be applied, using laser and dermatological procedures, if needed.

Post-operative care and additional procedures

We usually perform a transitory paralysation on a local level of the sensitive nerves, to minimise post-operative discomfort. The stitches we use are dissolvable, making their removal unnecessary. Nevertheless, a post-operative lymphatic drainage is highly recommendable.

All our patients are provided with compression garments to be worn for about 6 weeks. We discourage any type of physical exercise that involves weight lifting during the recovery process.
