After rapid weight loss or stomach reduction surgery, one of the sagging areas is the arm area. This deformation, which affects the person not only visually but also psychologically, leads to the idea of having surgery. With arm stretching (brachioplasty) surgery, the person gets rid of his sagging skin and has a tighter, stretched arm structure. Arm lift surgery is a surgical operation performed to restore tension by removing unwanted subcutaneous fat tissue and sagging skin seen in this area.
Arm lift surgery is performed in hospital conditions under general or local anesthesia. The duration of the operation is 1.5-2 hours on average. Those who have local surgery can be discharged on the same day, while patients who have surgery under general anesthesia can be discharged the next day. Showering is allowed 2 days after the operation. In the early days, elastic bandages are used. The arms are tried to be kept above the heart level. No stitches required.
