Procedure to improve heavy arms.
Heavy upper arms are usually caused from the increased volume
associated with weight gain. After weight loss the skin of
your upper arms often fails to tighten, so it sags . The result
is loose upper arm skin. To improve this problem is to undergo
an arm lift, also called Brachioplasty.
Liposuction is done to reduce the fat bulk [ if present] and
loose excess skin is removed by incision in the armpit [ axilla
], usually not a big scar [ mildly nociable initially] which
after softening in 3-6 months becomes least noticeable.
Operation is done under anesthesia, general, or , local with
sedation.; in 80-100 min.
Patient can go back home same evening. Compression garment
and dressings will be given, to be removed in 5-7 days.
