Arm Lift Surgery or Brachioplasty in Argentina

Arm lift or brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that removes loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper arm that makes it look saggy. After this surgery you will feel quite comfortable, even when you wear sleeveless clothes.

The Procedure

To perform this procedure, the surgeon has to make an incision from the armpit to the elbow, along the interior area of each arm so that he can remove the loose skin and fat. After that, he has to insert drainage tubes if necessary, and finally he will close the incisions with sutures.

Returning to Normal Routine

After an arm lift surgery or brachioplasty, you will be able to return to work within 2 to 5 days.

What are the possible side-effects and complications?

The practice of medicine and surgery is not an exact science. Although this operation doesn't have practically any type of side-effects some of the risks and potential complications that can occur are infection, fluid accumulation, changes in skin sensation, skin discoloration and/or swelling, etc.

What can be expected from a brachioplasty?

For a long time you will have your arms much firmer. After this surgery you will feel free to wear any kind of shirts like sleeveless ones. Most patients feel that the benefits obtained far outweigh the negative aspects. The results of arm lift surgery are very satisfactory.

What can NOT be expected?

You can't expect from a brachioplasty to remove small fat deposits from your arms if the skin has a good elasticity. For those cases, if diets and physical exercise do not produce the desired results, Liposuction is the right thing for you.
