What is the surgery of the arms?

Whether it is caused by aging or being overweight, gravity has persistent effects on some body parts. Your arms that you find flabby and creased embarrass you? You think you have “bat” arms? You dream of sculpted arms? The plastic surgery of arms, especially arm lifting, can help you retrieve the desired appearance and regain your self-confidence.

What are the main interventions ?

To correct the flabby and creased aspects of the skin, the arm lifting, also known as “brachioplasty”, is often prescribed. The surgery, done under a general anesthesia during an ambulatory hospitalization, lasts approximately 1h30min. It removes the excess of the skin of the internal face of the arm and “re-drape” it. 

For some patients, it is necessary to add a liposuction to the arm lifting to remove the fat excess. 

Nowadays, there are different techniques. The surgeon will select the most adapted depending on the excess of skin to remove. As opposed to what we may think, you can barely see the scar. You cannot even see it when the person is in front of you with bare arms. It is important to know that it takes a few months to a year before you can fully enjoy the visual aspect of the scar.
