Arm lift Tunisia : brachioplasty to firm the skin of the arms

Arm lift tunisia, also known as a "brachioplasty", reduces excess skin and fat from the inner part of the arm. This procedure targets the problem area between the armpit and the elbow, and works to contour the arm, resulting in smoother skin and a firmer appearance. Skin problems in the upper arm are common and often bothersome to patients.

Arm lift Tunisia

Brachioplasty is generally considered a post-weight loss surgery for those who have lost a lot of weight, resulting in sagging skin, or due to aging where the skin has lost its elasticity and tone.

It is important to note that an arm lift is not a weight loss solution or a substitute for diet and exercise. Arm lift surgery should only be considered when the excess fat from the upper inner arms has already been lost and there is significant excess or sagging skin.

How can an arm lift help me?

An arm lift can help give your upper arms a smooth, toned and contoured appearance.

The benefits of brachioplasty include:

  • Reduces excess fat in the upper arms
  • Eliminates sagging armpit skin, especially after weight loss
  • Creates a more streamlined arm shape
  • Wearing dresses with bare arms, no need to hide your arms anymore

The surgery

The incision for arm lift surgery is on the inside or back of your arm (axillary or transaxillary incision). Sometimes a brachioplasty incision extends from the armpit to the elbow, but may be shorter. The surgery will leave a scar that fades over time.

The sagging skin and fat on the upper arm are eliminated, then the remaining skin is redraped over the new contour, leaving a shapely, smooth and firm result.

The effect of arm lift surgery is immediately visible and your results will improve over time as the swelling decreases during recovery.

Before surgery begins, your upper arms will be marked to indicate where the incisions will be made. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about 2 to 3 hours. The length of the incision and the final scar vary depending on the degree of correction and can start at the armpit and end at the elbow. The excess skin is removed to give the arms a more natural contour with the skin redraped and tightened.

Drains are usually not used and stitches dissolve and do not need to be removed.

Do I need to be hospitalized for arm lift surgery?

The arm lift is usually performed on an outpatient basis, although this procedure is often combined with other surgeries, which may require an overnight stay at the El Yosr International Clinic in Sousse, Tunisia.

Can I combine the arm lift with other procedures?

Yes, brachioplasty is usually performed after significant weight loss to remove excess skin. If other areas of the body have also been affected, it can be combined to correct those areas as well. Common surgeries performed with an arm lift include liposuction , body lift, breast surgery, etc. Arm lift surgery is often part of a comprehensive post-weight loss surgical approach to remove excess skin.

What do arm lift scars look like?

Brachioplasty sometimes requires an extensive incision in order to remove excess skin and provide a dramatic result that eliminates extensive hanging skin, and scars usually need to extend from the armpit to the elbow.
