Arm Lift – Brachioplasty

arm-liftLoosening and sagging occur in the arm skin, as a result of aging or excessive weight gain/loss.

The excess part of the skin is determined based on the degree of sagging in the arms. First, the subcutaneous tissue is thinned by applying liposuction, and then the excess skin is removed.


The length of the scar that will occur on the inner side of the arm and in the armpit is directly proportional to the degree of the sagging.

Correct determination of the skin part to be removed is of great importance. Too much or too less skin removal may lead to various aesthetic problems.

Arm Lift

It is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the scale of the operation. It can be done in combination with other plastic surgeries.

The arm movements get restricted for the first week.

The scars gain their final appearances one year after the operation, on the average. During this period, sun protection is important.

Sagging Arm Skin

There may be arms, which have not much excess skin but are too thick to be compatible with the body. In people with good skin elasticity, the arms can be thinned by means of liposuction alone. Tubular bandage should be used for a period of 4-6 weeks after liposuction.
