Arm Lift


Arm Lift in Tijuana

The skin on the underside of the upper arms becomes loose and floppy as we age. Brachioplasty is a cosmetic procedure that addresses this region of the body. The arm lift procedure eliminates extra fat and sagging skin while tightening the underlying tissue to restore tighter, more youthful contours.

What Happens During An Arm Lift?

On the day of your operation, your doctor will begin by identifying the areas on your arm where incisions will be made. The most typical method is to make incisions on the inside or back of your arms. Depending on what the surgeon determines, other alternative incisions include an armpit incision or one that reaches from the top of your elbow to your armpit.

The procedure will be done under either local or general anesthesia.  The tissue in the upper arm will be tightened or reshaped before the skin is drawn back over it and sewn shut.

If there are any excess pockets of fat that are preventing your arm from properly healing, your doctor may perform liposuction to remove that fat at the same time. The full treatment is often completed in three hours.

You’ll need someone to drive you home following the procedure and stay with you overnight to ensure there aren’t any complications.

Arm Lift Recovery

To decrease swelling after surgery, you may need to wear a compression garment. Your doctor may also put a temporary drainage tube in your arm to remove any excess fluid or blood following surgery.

Your doctor will provide you with postoperative care recommendations to follow at home. These will include instructions on how to care for your wounds, which drugs to take and when to check for warning signals, and a follow-up visit schedule.

Within two weeks, you will be able to go back to work. You should be able to resume regular exercise within six weeks. Inform your doctor if you experience any discomfort or difficulty moving beyond the initial healing period.
