Brachioplasty: For a Young and Tight Arm Appearance

Brachioplasty is a plastic surgery procedure performed to reshape sagging and looseness in the arm area. This surgery involves removing sagging skin and fatty tissue and tightening the arm muscles. As a result, a younger and firmer appearance is obtained. Brachioplasty is usually recommended for arm sagging caused by aging, weight loss, or genetic reasons. These conditions can be serious problems that cannot be fixed with lifestyle changes, such as exercise and diet.

Before surgery, it is recommended that patients have a consultation with a plastic surgeon and get detailed information about how the surgery will be performed. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and the procedure takes about 1-2 hours. After surgery, patients may have swelling, bruising and discomfort in their arms. However, these symptoms usually become less within a few days. The complete recovery process may vary depending on the patient’s age, general health status and the volume of the surgery.

Brachioplasty is a procedure that usually gives effective results. However, like any surgical procedure, it also involves certain risks. Therefore, it is important that patients understand all the risks before surgery and pay attention to the recommendations of their doctors.

As a result, brachioplasty is a good option for patients who want to struggle with sagging and loose arm skin. The surgery is a procedure that is usually performed in a short time and does not affect the arm strength of the patients. However, it is important to consult your doctor before surgery and understand all the risks.

What are the Points To Take Into Consideration Before Brachioplasty?

There are some points to take into consideration before and after this surgery. Here are the things to consider:

  1. Choosing a Plastic Surgeon: Brachioplasty is a procedure that requires expertise. Therefore, it is important to choose an experienced plastic surgeon by doing a good research before surgery.
  2. Preoperative Preparation: You may need to stop taking certain medications including blood thinners such as aspirin, at least two weeks before surgery. Before surgery, it is recommended to avoid smoking, alcohol and caffeine consumption.

  4. Postoperative Recovery: You may feel swelling, bruising and pain in your arms after surgery. It is important that you follow your doctor’s recommendations during the postoperative healing process. These recommendations may include keeping your arm up, wearing a corset for a certain period of time, and avoiding heavy work for a certain period of time after surgery.
  5. Risks: Brachioplasty involves certain risks, like any surgical procedure. There are risks such as infection, bleeding, complications due to anesthesia, and wound healing problems. Therefore, it is important to understand all the risks before surgery and follow your doctor’s recommendations.
  6. Results: The results after brachioplasty are usually permanent. However, the results may be affected due to aging, weight gain or other factors. Therefore, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow your doctor’s recommendations after surgery.
