What is Arm Lift?

The arm lift is one of the most preferred procedures in aesthetic surgery. As it is known, the arm region is one of the most important limbs in the body. Especially in the summer, we wear short-sleeved clothes, so the aesthetic appearance of the arms very important. People with lousy arm aesthetics may feel uncomfortable and have self-confidence problems.

The arm lift is applied by aesthetic surgery, demanding for some reasons. This treatment is generally preferred by people with oily, thick, or sagging arms. Since the skin on the inside of the upper arm is thin, it is very suitable for loosening. With the arm lift, the bad appearance in the arms of the patients is resolved.

What causes Arm Drooping?

Arm sagging can occur due to many reasons. One of the primary reasons is the decrease in elastin and collagen, two important proteins in the body, as we get older. With the decrease of these two proteins, the elasticity and firmness of the skin gradually decrease. Decreased protein in the body causes sagging skin. Apart from this, we can also specify:

Poor diet,

Excessive alcohol and smoking,

Being exposed to the sun (UV) for a long time and continuously,

Sudden and rapid weight loss,

conditions can also cause sagging in the arm area. However, arms sagging is observed mainly due to changes in the body due to age and weight loss.

How is Arm Lift surgery performed?

Arm lift operation, which can be performed under general or local anesthesia, usually takes between 2 and 5 hours. Arm lift operation proceeds in different ways according to the level of sagging in the patient's arms. For example, if there is a mild degree of loosening and lubrication in the arm, recovery is achieved with 3D Laserlipolysis, an application that does not leave any traces. 3D Laser lipolysis application brings patients to a satisfactory level in recovering both oily and severely sagging arm skin.

In another method, if there is sagging in the arm skin, excess sagging skin and fatty tissue are removed. In an arm lift surgery, the incisions made on the arm to remove excess skin and fatty tissue leave scars after the surgery. These traces should be made in blind spots as much as possible, and care should be taken to hide them and make them less noticeable. However, the greater the amount of sagging, the longer the incision length. In this case, the size of the remaining trace may be larger than anticipated. However, when compared with the old situation after surgery, most patients are satisfied with the result.

Who can have the Arm Lift surgery?

The arm lift is an operation that is frequently requested by people who were overweight and then lost weight. In arm lift applications, the physical characteristics and weight of the person are taken as a basis, and the applications to be made are determined. People who have lost their elasticity and those who have deformities in their skin can have an arm lift. The lower age limit for Arm Lift is 18. However, the average age of arm lift aesthetics usually varies between 40 and 50 years.
