What is the Arm Lift Procedure?
Arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure that aims to reshape and contour the upper arm area by removing excess skin and fat deposits. This surgical technique is particularly beneficial for those who have lost a significant amount of weight or have excess skin due to aging.
The best candidates for the arm lift procedure are people with sagging skin and fat in their upper arms, which cannot be corrected through exercise or diet alone.
After an arm lift procedure, patients can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Therefore, it is essential to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the plastic surgeon carefully, including the use of compression garments, taking prescribed medications, and avoiding strenuous activities for a few weeks. The recovery period may take several weeks, and patients should plan accordingly. At The One Clinic, the patients will be provided with a detailed plan for follow-up appointments and post-operative care to ensure optimal results.
