The arm lift surgery procedure, also known as brachioplasty, is a treatment for excess or sagging skin of the underarms and bicep area. This area of the arm is very susceptible to sagging or drooping due to ageing or weight loss. It is very common over time for the skin to lose its elasticity and loosen. As the skin loosens it can droop and cause an individual to feel insecure or less confidence about their appearance.
Arm lift surgery, also medically referred to as brachioplasty, is a procedure commonly performed to tighten and lift the loose skin of the upper arms be it from aging or from build-up of fat deposits on the upper arms.
Patients undergoing an arm lift surgery are expected to be able to resume daily activities and routine within a week of the surgery. Swelling from the surgery will begin to fade out and completely diminish within a week of the surgery. Patients will notice immediate change in appearance, however after passing the 3-4 weeks' timeline, patients will experience further improvements regarding the arm's overall appearance.
