The inner face of the arms tend to relax with time, especially after relevant weight loss, with unpleasant skin folds exposed with short sleeves and continuous friction of the skin than can bring to irritation, over-sweating and discomfort.
A brachioplasty might be the ideal solution to correct this problem.
Before starting the operation the surgeon marks your arms in the standing up position to decide where the scars will be best concealed. The operation is performed under general anesthetic or under a sedation + local anesthesia. An incision made in the inner face of the arm helps to tighten up the skin and reshape around the muscles. This operation can be combined with liposuction to achieve a better contour.
You can leave the clinic the same day or the day after. A compressive garment must be worn for about 4 weeks. During the first days it might be uncomfortable sitting down, however it quickly improves. Stitches are all resorbable and don’t need to be removed; however a control will be made at 1, 2 and 4 weeks.
The final results can be seen after two months when all the swelling has faded away.
