What is Arm Lift Surgery?
Arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a plastic surgery done to reshape the appearance of the underarm part of the upper arm. So basically, patients who want to get rid of their flabby skin on arms have this procedure done.
In the course of an arm lift surgery, the extra skin and fat that is in between of the underarm and elbow are taken out. Because the excess skin removal from arms is done and fat is removed, the upper arms are left with a good contour.
Techniques of Arm Lift Surgery
- Arm Liposuction: This is usually done for patients who don’t have extra skin but have some fat on their upper arm. So the patient won’t have an arm lift scar.
- Arm lift with minimal incision: This is usually done for patients who have some extra skin that would be counted as minimal, the patient will need incisions, but minimal.
- Extended Arm Lift: This technique is used on patients who were overweight, therefore there is a lot of extra skin. Because of this, the incision will be long, usually the incision starts from the elbow, through the armpit, and to the side of the chest.

Arm Lift Surgery Recovery and Results
After an arm lift procedure, the incisions will be wrapped in a dressing. You might have drains to drain any extra blood or fluid. It would be good if the patient comes with a friend or a family member to help them. For a few weeks, swelling, soreness, and feeling uncomfortable is normal.
Clinic Center doctor will remove your dressings and drain(s) when he or she thinks it is the right time to do so.
DO’s and DON’TS:
- For 3-4 weeks after arm lift don’t lift your arms above shoulder level.
- For 4-8 weeks after an arm lift, don’t do any physical and athletic activities with your arms that may stretch the incisions.
- Take the medicines/ creams that were prescribed by the Clinic Center doctor.
- Patients are allowed to walk right after the surgery.
- Don’t do jogging, contact sports for at least six weeks.
- A month later, patients can start riding a bicycle.
- For the first 1-2 weeks after arm lift, patients should sleep with their arms raised on two or three pillows.
- Patients shouldn’t shower until their doctor says okay to it.
Ask the Clinic Center doctor regarding the stitches, when will they be removed? Will they be removed? Some stitches are dissolvable, so nothing needs to be done. But if the doctor has used stitches that don’t dissolve, then a doctor will have to remove them.
If the patient doesn’t drastically gain or lose weight, the results should last for many years. The human body continues to age, including the skin. This could mean that in the future an arm lift patient may have loose skin. If patients gain a lot of weight after the arm lift surgery and then lose that weight, loose skin will come back. In either case, arm laxity that will come will be a lot less notable than before the arm lift surgery.
Getting rid of loose skin on arms, by having an arm lift in Istanbul, patients will have a more toned looking upper arm. As long as patients maintain a healthy weight and eat healthily, their arm lift results can usually be long-lasting.
