What to expect from arm lift procedure

The upper arms’ status greatly affect the appearance, as it’s hard to wear a sleeveless dress without the affected areas to be seen. Unfortunately the fact is that due to weight fluctuation the upper arm loses elasticity, the skin sags and this can get rid of only by arm surgery. During the process our specialists often use liposuction in the area, so targeting a perfect result.

The treatment plan is always developed according to individual capabilities, because everyone has different dimensions and needs. With arm lift surgery the skin can be tighter, skin and unwanted fat can be removed and since the incisions are maden on the inner part of the arm, they are not noticeable after recovery. With our help you can forget the overweight times, which certainly leave their mark on the state of the upper arm.


What is arm lift surgery?

During the one and a half or two hours arm surgery our surgeon uses liposuction to remove unwanted skin so the patients can again look this area in the mirror with satisfaction. The procedure is made under anesthesia, and liposuction is often needed to improve the achieved result.

A thin drain is inserted to a predetermined spot, so the unwanted parts will be removed by the vacuum. By cutting out the loosened skin, the arms can be tight again, which rejuvenates years to your appearance. After surgery, a compression bandage gets on the arm that promotes tissue adhesion, speeding the tautness and of course shortens the healing time.

The arm surgery may be necessary not only because of passing years, but after significant weight loss, as the change in weight very much effects the state of the upper arm, since higher amounts of fat tends to deposit in this area.


What preparations and analysis are needed before the procedure?

Prior to the arm lift, you can get a line on informations about the expected results, the duration of the healing process, within a free personal consultation. Naturally there is a need of routine tests that are required before the surgery, performed under general anesthesia. These include ECG, X-ray, lab, and also all information about life-style, health status and taken medication are required to share with your doctor.

Since the intervention - like calf augmentation or buttock surgery - is performed under general anesthesia, our medical team needs to know about circulatory disorders, varicose or any experience with anesthesia. At the Budapest Plastic Surgery Institute you can get over with the preliminary tests quickly and smoothly so you don’t spend time with waiting.We assure comfortable and quality environment for the tests so that long-awaited day of the surgery may come soon as possible.


Expected results

After the surgery, you will have to spend a night in our clinic. A drain will be inserted to the area, so that the resulting fluid clear off. Since we use absorbable sutures, there will be no need for stitch removal, but the compression bandage should be worn for at least one month. It is also recommended for the arms to be supported while resting, so the healing process will be much faster.

If you do not perform physical work, you can work again in about two weeks, but you should abstain from physical strain and physical exercise for the first month and then only gradually return to the sporty every day. The final results are already visible after a few weeks, but you have to wait about a half a year to reach the final shape of the treated area.

Thanks to the arm lift surgery you can say goodbye to sagging, disfigured upper arm with hanging skin, and instead enjoy tautness, and look forward to dressing up again.
