Arm Lift

One of the areas where sagging occurs after rapid weight loss or stomach reduction surgeries is the arm region. This deformation, which affects the person not only visually, but also psychologically, leads the person to the idea of operation. With arm stretching (brachioplasty) surgery, the person gets rid of his sagging skin and has a tighter, taut arm structure.

Arm lift surgery is a plastic surgery operation performed in order to restore the tension by removing the unwanted subcutaneous fat tissue and sagging skin in this region.

Why is Arm Lift done?

Loose and sagging arm skin is one of the sources of unhappiness. This problem is especially noticeable in sleeveless garments. When the arms are raised to both sides, a bat-wing-like droop appears at the bottom. Thanks to plastic surgery, it is possible to get rid of this uncomfortable situation both physically and emotionally.

Why Does Arm Skin Sagging?

With the effect of aging, genetic structure, excessive weight gain, exposure to the sun and gravity, sagging occurs in the arm area.

The sagging of the back and inner parts of the arm, which has looser skin and subcutaneous tissue, is mostly caused by fat accumulation and skin sagging.

How Is Arm Lift Performed?

The arm is shaped by removing excess skin with incisions made from the armpit or inside the elbow. If there is excess fat, it is removed by liposuction or directly by incisions. Aesthetic sutures are applied at the incision sites.
