All of your consultations are held directly with the surgeon who will perform your surgery.
Loss of weight or simple ageing changes may lead to excess skin being present in the upper arms commonly known as bingo wings. The loose skin on the upper arms can be a source of embarrassment. An upper arm lift (brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure which removes this excess skin and tissue, giving an improved appearance to the arms.
Regain your natural shape and confidence with a arm lift at Aset Hospital . With decades of experienceof body surgical procedures our highly skilled surgeons are on hand to work with you to achieve a naturally sculpted and toned arm.
The ideal candidate for arm lift is someone with excess loose skin on the upper arm which hangs like a wing when the arm is held out. This may be associated with excess fat.
Patients are assesed on an individual basis in order to create a tailored care package personalised to the individual, this involves checking your medical and psychological health. Our dedicated team will ensure that prior to your decision, you meet with a Consultant Plastic Surgeon to talk through your specific needs, questions and queries.
The procedure is carried out under general anaesthesia. It can be done as a day case or you may stay in hospital overnight. The scars are very noticeable with this procedure as the incisions are usually made from the armpit to the elbow. The excess skin and fat are removed and then the incision is stitched back together (usually using dissolvable sutures) giving an improved appearance to the arms. The resulting scar runs on the inner part of the arm extending from the armpit towards the elbow. The length of the scar varies depending on the amount of the skin which requires excision. In order to help reduce swelling and aid in the natural tightening of the skin the arms are then wrapped in dressings or a compression garment which must be worn for six weeks.
Your well being is our priority, Aset Hospital will provide a comprehensive and personalised aftercare packagewhich is included in your treatment.
Following arm lift surgery, where both arms may be out of action for a few days, you are advised to ensure you have a member of family or a close friend available to help you while you recover from surgery. You will need to wear a compression garment or bandages for 6 weeks following this operation. Your wound will be checked two weeks after your surgery and the surgeon who performed your surgery will see you after 6 weeks for a follow-up assessment and as often as required until you are fully recovered. It is vital that you attend all necessary post-operative appointments. It is recommended that you take one to two weeks off work and avoid physical exercise for six weeks. If this procedure is carried out under a general anaesthetic avoid driving for 2 weeks.
