Brachioplasty (plastic surgery of the skin of the arms) is carried out by excision of the excess volume of the skin and subcutaneous fat, followed by tightening of the skin.
Tightening of the skin of the arms allows you to restore the tone of the forearms, eliminate the excess volume of hanging skin. In some cases, hand brachioplasty is performed in combination with liposuction to remove excess fat layer, or is itself an additional procedure as a result of such an intervention.
Transaxillary Brachioplasty (elliptical removal of excess tissue) involves making a small incision in the armpit and removing the ellipsoid area of the skin. Along with this, the simultaneous removal of excess adipose tissue through the incision can be performed.
By tightening the skin with its fixation in a new position, the sagging area is eliminated. Transaxillary plastic surgery of the hands allows to hide the scar formed after the operation in the armpit and is indicated if it is necessary to remove a small area of skin.
Indications for a arm skin lift:
• Age-related changes in the characteristics of the skin and muscles
• Abrupt cessation of physical activity, as a result of which dystrophic processes develop in the muscles
• A sharp decrease in body weight in the treatment of alimentary obesity and other diseases
• The appearance of excess skin as a result of liposuction
Length Of Operation: 1,5-2 hour
Going Back To Normal Life: 1 week
Full Recovery: 2-3 week
