Brachioplasty (arm lift)

Sign up

Women of different age dream of beautiful, fit arms. Flabbiness on the inner part from the elbow to the shoulder sometimes appears at a young age. In the field of plastic surgery, this defect is called “bat’s wings”. Brachioplasty ensures elimination of excessive fat deposits in the upper arm region and lifting of the skin to return the natural look. As a result, you get a beautiful, fit shape of forearms and will finally feel confident in clothes with open shoulders in the summer.

The problem of flabby arm skin is familiar to many women after 40. At a young age, “bat’s wings” most frequently appear after abrupt loss of weight. If you do not want to wear long-sleeve blouses until the end of your life, you should take a look at the Brachioplasty manipulation.

What problems can brachioplasty solve?

Brachioplasty is a surgical operation for the correction of arms from elbows to shoulders and armpits. Sometimes this manipulation is called arm lift. Brachioplasty effectively combats fat deposits in the region of armpits, skin drooping and flabbiness. Whereas physical activity only improves the muscle tone, it does not combat arm contour defects.

The lifting of arms and shoulders proves to be the most effective in combination with laser liposuction and lipolysis. Fat removal in the tender region of armpits and inner forearms is performed using laser technologies. They have soft, sparing effect and ensure impressive results without leaving visible scars.

Contraindications to arm lift

The manipulation is considered to be a complex operative intervention and therefore has a number of contraindications:

  • cardiovascular diseases;
  • poor blood coagulability;
  • diabetes mellitus and other serious metabolic conditions;
  • oncological diseases;
  • pregnancy and lactation.

You should not plan arm lift if you are going to lose weight in the near future. It is better to do it after weight loss.

Preparation and procedure

Before the manipulation, an experienced surgeon will have the patient undergo comprehensive medical examination. One should do clinical and biochemical blood tests and several specific tests.

As a rule, the operation lasts for 2-3 hours under general narcosis. During brachioplasty under general narcosis, the doctor will mark up the skin and cut the tissue from the elbow to the shoulder along the inner side. The cut position may differ depending on the patient’s individual situation — a longitudinal or a fish-shaped cut are the most frequent. As a rule, a visible scar remains after a T-shaped cut, whereas the S-shaped cut leaves an inconspicuous scar, which becomes invisible several months after the operation.

During the first days after the operation, one may report hypersensitivity and swelling that will resolve after a week. In case of moderately drooping skin, brachioplasty can be performed through small cuts in the axilla.

The experienced plastic surgeon will recommend a set of easy exercises for the rehabilitation period. Provided stable weight, the effect of brachioplasty may retain for several years.

What is the average cost of an arm lift?

The cost of the manipulation depends on the scope of operative intervention and the specialist’s qualification. Surgeons with rich experience of such operations work at the Diamond Laser clinic in Kyiv. They will tell you about all nuances and prices for the manipulation in great detail. Make an appointment and the dream of beautiful arms and open blouses will come true.
