Arm Lift

Over time, the back of the arms tends to relax looking more flabby. The consequences are mainly aesthetic but also giving discomfort in wearing dresses: for a woman, seeing her arms weak does not help her to appreciate her body. The insecurity that is generated affects interpersonal relationships and causes the fear of appearing in public.

There is a way to avoid this condition: the brachioplasty, better known as arm lift. This surgery allows to reestablish tonicity to the arms’ skin and give back to the woman's silhouette the charm of the past.

The procedure

With the first appointment I try to understand the patient's health status, why she chose for this surgery and her expectations. I illustrate possible complications, realistically achievable results and I am always available to answer every question.

During the surgery, first I make an incision that starts from the elbow up to the armpit, then I lift the skin to remove the excess fat and I carefully place it again on the arm keeping it taut. Finally, I stitch the incision with internal stitches. The technique acquired over many years of experience allows me to minimize the visibility of scars.

Upon awakening, such as in any operation, swellings and bruises may occur to disappear within two or three weeks. Depending on the patient's state of health, I suggest the rest period to observe and for how much time you have to stay away from work. During the first few days it is important to keep the wounds dry and the medical treatment intact.

A few days after the surgery I meet again the patient to appreciate, together with her, the results achieved. At the end of the aesthetic path, my patient will see her arms again smooth, toned and in equilibrium in a newly young body.
