An arm lift, or Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow. The procedure is performed to reduce excess sagging skin that droops downward, Tighten and smooth the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm, reduce localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.
Benefits of Arm Lift Surgery: Reduction in upper arm excess, Better self image/confidence, being able to wear short sleeve clothing without being self conscious
Risks of Brachioplasty: Bleeding, Infection, Unattractive scarring, Swelling of the hands, Seroma formation (seromas are fluid collections that can arise after surgery along the incision line)
Side effects: Pain and sensitivity in the incision area, Inability to lift arms past a certain point, Fatigue, Itching of incision sites.
Minimize the Arm Lift Surgery Side Effects: To minimize side effects, follow your surgeon's advice regarding healing time. For the first 24 hours following surgery, it's important to have someone stay with you and act as a caregiver. Be sure to rest, take all medications as prescribed and heed your doctor's warning about when to resume light and heavy activities including lifting and exercise.
All kinds of surgery come with some risks and complications. The same goes with the arm lift surgery. After the surgery, the most noticeable side effect would be the swelling of your incision wounds. You will be required to wear a post operative compression garment to ensure proper healing and to minimize the swelling. Infection can be another complication of arm lift but it can be easily avoided if you follow your doctor's instructions of your prescription medicines.
