Welcome to Dr. Nazmi Baycin’s arm lift surgery page. As a plastic surgeon in Dubai, UAE, here I will share my professional knowledge and personal experience about the procedure, surgical techniques of arm lift surgery, recovery period, tips to avoid unwanted results, risks and complications of the surgery and more… You will also have an idea regarding the arm lift surgery prices in Dubai.
Both the effect of aging and the weight alterations lead to sag and loosening in the upper parts of their arms in many people.
Especially when you wear short-sleeved t-shirts or sleeveless clothes, if you raise your arms slightly, the sagging and looseness become more manifest.
While loosening is manifest in most of the people as they are aging, the problem also obvious in younger people who lose weight.
Arm lift surgery, called brachioplasty can correct the loose skin on the upper part of the arm.
If you plan to have arm lift surgery in Dubai, here, you will find out all the information you need.
When you lift the arm so that it is parallel to the ground, the skin excess in the area between the elbow and the armpit manifests itself. If your arms have excess fat without skin laxity and sagging, the tissue is still firm. In such cases, liposuction procedure which will not cause a scar on the arm is a more preferable option.
Good medical conditions, general health, clean medical history, free of systemic disease such as heart disease are essential for arm lift surgery in terms of patient safety.
If you have skin excess on you upper arm you are suitable for surgery regardless your age.
My objective is to make you happy as achieving a cosmetically more acceptable arm form with minimum surgical mark. So, redundant fat removal and loose skin tightening will improve your body image and restore your self-confidence.
Some patients seek a solution as they experienced a failed arm lift surgery before. Poor scarring due to slipshod suturing of surgical incisions is the most common complaint of the patients consulting me. Sometimes, their corrective surgery challenges even more than to do the primary surgery. Therefore your first surgery is crucial. The goal is to achieve the best outcome in a single shot.
Depending on the progress of the age, skin loosening may occur. In such cases, liposuction is not the proper option. The proper method is arm lift surgery, namely, removal of the fat excess together with skin excess to ensure normal skin tightness.
In the arm lift surgery, loose tissue on the arm is cut off together with the skin. Afterward, the skin is stitched for tightening. Since the skin excess had gone, a scar is necessarily formed along the cut line of the removed skin.
Arm lift scar locates in the manner the arm will not show the scar when viewed from the front, side or backside. Namely, the scar locates on the aspect of the arm in contact with the body.
Therefore, I pay attention that in surgery, the surgical scar will take place that will not be visible even the patients wear sleeveless clothes.
Prior the brachioplasty surgery, I will mark the skin excess which needs removal. Surgical procedure requires general anaesthesia. The procedure consists of skin removal and suturing the wound edges together. Brachioplasty lasts about 2-4 hours, depending on how much skin excess to be removed.
Pain medication reduces concomitant mild pain after the procedure. You will be able to mobilize 2-3 hours after brachioplasty surgery. If you feel good enough you may leave the hospital on the same day.
However if you need some rest, you may leave the hospital on the next day as well. Swelling and bruising which is inherent may occur on the back side of your arm. Swelling and bruising disappear completely in 1-2 weeks.
You will be able to travel 2-3 days after the arm lift surgery, however, driving yourself takes longer.
2-3 days after the surgery, you can take a shower. Although the recovery period is variable, you will resume your casual life 1 week after surgery.
I always stitch the skin with absorbable and hidden sutures. So you will not feel stitch removal stress. You will be able to begin heavy work and sportive activities 4 weeks after surgery.
Even though the surgery necessarily leaves a scar on the arm, the results are pretty satisfying.
The complication rates are the compilation of medical literature data and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The rates may vary depending on the patient’s medical conditions. That does not mean you will experience all those complications.
Obese, diabetic, but less likely smokers are more prone to complications.
Hematoma (blood collection inside the wound) and infection risk are general risks of all surgical procedures. However, thorough surgical technique and proper medication minimize the risk of bleeding and infection following brachioplasty surgery.
Wound dehiscence and delayed wound healing may occur following the brachioplasty surgery. Especially obese and smoker patients have more tendency than others.
Although it occurs rarely, nerve injuries during the arm lift surgery may cause temporary sensational changes around the surgical areas.
Slight asymmetries and surface irregularities that are tolerable may occur between the left and right arm.
Poor wound healing and scar formation (Hypertrophic scarring) following arm lift surgery, which may need a revision may occur.
In case of any complication, it may bother you, prolong the recovery period. However, it can be managed and treated as well. If you are healthy and not obese, the complication is pretty low.
Arm lift procedure provides satisfactory outcomes and patient experience when carried out thoroughly as eliminating the surgical risks.
IMPORTANT ! Before getting the appointment, check your medical conditions yourself.
