The surgeon should decide the appropriate anesthesia's type according to the patient's profile by taking into account any medical history, health condition, etc. The upper arm lift is frequently performed under general anesthesia. Besides, it will be recommended to remain fasting six hours before the intervention. Furthermore, the brachioplasty is an outpatient surgery, so the patient can leave the clinic the same day after a few hours of supervision. But, it may require one night stay if the arms lift procedure is heavy, and associated with another technique such as liposuction to get rid of an important excess fat.
A preoperative examination with the cosmetic surgeon is essential, the practitioner will carry out medical photographs and an in-depth clinical assessment to determine the suitable arm lift technique (lipoaspiration, positioning of the scar), the type of anesthesia and the hospitalization modalities. On the other hand, they will inform the patient of the procedure, the preoperative recommendations, the possible complications, the result that can be expected depending on the case and will ensure that no contraindication comes up against the intervention. They will also prescribe a compression garment.
How is brachioplasty performed ?
An arm lift associated with liposuction lasts about 1 hour to 1 hour and a half depending on the technique used and excess skin and fat to remove. The surgeon begins by creating the marks on the elbows, arms and underarms that will serve as locations for the incisions needed for excess fat and skin removal. The incisions should be completely hidden in the inner part of the arms and be done with care in order to minimize scarring. Regarding the liposuction, it can be combined to eliminate excess fat if the patient suffer from weight surplus . The intervention has two phases; The first one is fat aspiration. If necessary, excess fat is sucked by liposuction or commonly called "arms liposuction". This concerns both fat deposits on the inner and outer side of the arm. With regard to the second phase, it consists on removing the excess skin known as "arm dermolipectomy".
Brachioplasty surgery features several techniques according to the size, the scar's position and the incision's type. There are three main techniques.
Arm lift with longitudinal incision along the inner arm: in cases of significant excess and to remedy the aesthetic and functional discomfort of the arm.
Upper arm lift with horizontal incision in the armpit: in cases of moderate excess and when lesions are less noticeable. A horizontal scar is then hidden in the armpit's crease.
Combination of the two techniques: the practitioner can combine the two processes each with advantages (correction both in the vertical and transverse plane) and disadvantages including the scarring. This method will result a horizontal incision in the axilla and a longer vertical scar in the inner arm.
At the end of the procedure, the practitioner stitches up the incisions and places a dressing, sticky elastic bands, or a compression garment of liposuction.
Scars related to arm lift intervention
Like any surgery, brachioplasty leaves a scar. Indeed, the latter will depend on the method used as mentioned above. Nevertheless, the arm lift intervention will enhance the upper arm contour, while the final scar aspect is noticeable approximately one year after the arm lift procedure. So, patients should protect their arm scar from UV exposure and apply total screen SPF50 in order to avoid skin discoloration.
Post operative effects and recovery after male enhancement surgery
After arm lift surgery, bruises and edema may appear, but will disappear within 2 weeks. The patient can experience a feeling of discomfort such as tightness and aches, slings and a slight slenderness can also appear, but they will quickly calmed down with simple analgesics. Besides, the patient should avoid any physical effort during the first month. It is recommended to take 7 days off for better recovery. Furthermore, it is essential to avoid any exposure of the arms to the sun during the first 6 months, to ensure good healing.
Result and outcome after brachioplasty operation
The result is visible immediately, but it will take about 6 to 12 months to notice the final result, the time that the scars diminish gradually. The arms morphology is improved thanks to the upper arms lift surgery, thus allowing a significant physical and psychological comfort. In fact, the arms regain their natural shape and elasticity; no more friction against the bust, especially after a brachioplasty with vertical incisions. As a consequence, the patient benefits from a tight arm skin with firmer and younger appearance. Moreover, this procedure is simple and fast to perform, while the upper arm lift results are reliable and durable.
Advices before and after upper arm lift surgery
The patient should maintain a stable weight before the brachioplasty intervention. It is forbidden to consume tobacco at least one month before and one month after the procedure, so to avoid any problem during the healing process and reduce the risk of skin necrosis. Besides, it is essential not to take medication containing aspirin during the ten days preceding the upper arm lift surgery.
The patient should follow the surgeon's instructions in order to achieve optimal healing; taking anticoagulants for 15 days and wearing a compression garment for 3 weeks. Furthermore, it is recommended to apply moisturizing creams to fight against the arm skin drying.
