Who is an ideal candidate for arm lift surgery?

Anyone unhappy about sagging skin on the upper arms can consider arm reduction surgery.

Many patients consult Anca Breahna because the skin on their upper arms has lost its elasticity with age, causing it to slacken and form ‘bingo wings’.

Other patients have worked hard to achieve significant weight loss but have been left with excess skin that has been overstretched and cannot spring back into place.

Liposuction may also leave patients with flabby skin in the upper arm area.

Whatever the cause of the loose skin on your upper arms, you can be sure of a sympathetic response from Miss Breahna when you meet her for your initial consultation. She understands that appearance is important for self-confidence and wants to help all her patients feel good about themselves.

Miss Breahna will assess you thoroughly and will be honest with you about the potential outcomes of your arm lift procedure.

It will also be necessary to take a complete medical history to ensure that you are fit and healthy enough to have an operation.

What happens during arm reduction surgery?

During this procedure, Miss Breahna makes an incision on the body side of the upper arm. She then removes any excess fat and remodels the tissues. After trimming away loose skin, the incision is closed using dissolvable stitches.

There are a number of surgical techniques that can be used for arm reduction. Miss Breahna may place the incision in the armpit area only or may need to extend it to as far as the elbow.

She will discuss the best technique to achieve your desired results at your first consultation with her.

Arm lift surgery is performed under general anaesthetic and typically takes between two and three hours. The vast majority of patients need to stay in hospital overnight after an arm lift.

Is an arm lift painful?

Your arms may feel swollen and tender after surgery, but most patients find that their pain can be well managed with mild analgesics.

When will I see the results of my arm lift surgery?

After six months, your upper arm area should be fully healed and the surgery scars will have started to fade.

Your arms will look smoother and more sculpted and you will feel much happier about showing them off in sleeveless tops and sportswear.

You can see some before and after-surgery pictures here.

Are there any risks with the removal of excess skin from the upper arm?

Any surgical intervention is likely to cause swelling and bruising, and arm lift surgery is no exception. However, these effects will disappear after a few days.

It may help to reduce swelling and post-operative fluid retention if you keep your arms raised on pillows when you are resting after surgery.

The choice of surgeon is of prime importance. The risk of any serious complications after your arm lift is significantly reduced when the procedure is performed by a surgeon with the expertise of Anca Breahna.

How long does it take to recover from an arm lift procedure?

You will need around two weeks off work to recover from surgery. Depending on the speed of your recovery, Miss Breahna may advise you that you are recovered sufficiently to return to the gym or exercise class after around six weeks.

Miss Breahna will follow your progress for the first year after surgery with regular check-up appointments.
