Also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that targets excess fat and skin in the upper arms. This procedure is often sought after by individuals who have lost significant weight or who have excess skin and fat in the upper arms due to aging.
During the procedure, the surgeon will make small incisions in the arm and insert a small tube called a cannula to suction out the excess fat. The surgeon may also remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin to improve the appearance of the arms.
Before the procedure
Patients should consult with their surgeon to discuss their goals and expectations for the surgery. They may need to undergo certain medical tests to ensure that they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. The surgeon may also provide specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, such as what medications to avoid and what to eat and drink before surgery.
After the procedure
Patients will need to take time to recover. They may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several days to a few weeks. The surgeon may prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort. Patients should avoid strenuous activities and lifting heavy objects for several weeks after surgery to prevent complications. They may also need to wear a compression garment to help with healing and reduce swelling.
The results of arm liposuction can be long-lasting, but they can be affected by weight gain or loss and the natural aging process. Patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise to maintain the results of their surgery.
