Saggy, flabby, and loose skin on the upper arms often results from excellent weight loss or age and, therefore, gravity, which tends to leave inappropriate marks on our bodies. An arm lift is a procedure preferred by surgeons when surgeons can detect excess skin on the arms, and a cosmetic improvement cannot be achieved with conventional liposuction. In the arm lift procedure, the surgeon cuts off the excess skin and sews it together.
However, from time to time, the surgeon will try to place the incision in less visible areas of the body so that it is hidden or the scar covers with clothing.
You can choose the arm lift in Turkey if you want to achieve smoother and tighter skin during surgery, just like in thigh, buttock, or Tummy Tuck surgery.
Who are the Ideal Candidates for Arm Lift?
Ideal candidates for arm lift in Turkey are men and women with drooping arms. The surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for an arm lift during the consultation. After the procedure, you can achieve the look of your dreams.
Arm Lift Procedure
The arm lift procedure in Turkey is relatively fast and extremely safe. Follow the arm lift steps in Turkey:
- Consultation and preparation
During the consultation, our surgeon will inform you about the various options, risks, and what to do for an effective result to achieve the expected result. During the consultation, the surgeon determines the scar location and the need for simultaneous liposuction.
Of course, there are several different degrees of how pronounced an issue with sagging excess skin can be, affecting where the incision should be and how long it takes. Regardless, this type of surgery aims to remove the sagging tissue and thus shrink the circumference of the upper arm.
In the arm lift procedure in Turkey, you will receive anesthesia for your comfort and a painless process. You will determine the type of anesthesia during your consultation with our surgeon.
Under normal conditions, the surgeon makes an incision extending from the elbow to the armpit. In this way, the expert best removes the excess skin in the middle. A scar correction may be necessary, as you have incurred the largest scarring with this method. The incision can only make under the armpit with slight skin excess. Sometimes, with limited quantity and saggy skin, the surgeon may combine the abovementioned techniques to limit wound size. Regardless of the method, the existing incision will often be made as a curve incision to prevent further scarring.
Finally, the surgeon closes the incisions and ends the procedure. The process can take an average of 1 to 2 hours.
Recovery After Arm Lift
When you wake up from anesthesia, you will experience a lot of aches and pains that you can alleviate with medication. Due to the location of the wounds, the aftermath is relatively uncomfortable, and you will experience an intense pinching sensation. There will also be bleeding (bruising), but these will gradually disappear.
Before discharge, the plastic surgeon will inform you about the precautions you will take in the postoperative period. It would be best if you didn’t lie in bed after the shot. It’s essential to get some movement around to prevent blood clots and for your overall health:
- It is normal to feel tired after surgery, so you should rest if necessary.
- After surgery, it is common to experience swelling, discoloration, and tingling sensations in the arms. To correct this problem while resting, we recommend placing the arms above heart level, e.g., on the pillows.
- It would be best to look for signs of infection, such as redness, heat, and oozing from the scars. In such a case, you should contact the clinic.
- In the first weeks after an arm lift in Turkey, you should avoid movements that pull on the wounds, as too much activity can increase the likelihood of extensive scarring and irritation.
