Tensioning of skin of the upper arm or brachioplasty resolves the problem of sagging skin, which appears as a result of natural ageing or after a considerable weight loss, for example, after bariatric surgeries.
Before the surgery
Blood tests are necessary.
Process of the surgery
Excess skin and fats are removed from upper arms. The surgery lasts about 1-2 hours and the surgery is performed under local or general anaesthesia.
You should wear a compression garment for 2 to 3 weeks. You can start active physical activity in 2-4 weeks. Oedema and bruising disappear within a month.
The result is long-term, but can be influenced by drastic changes in body weight and natural ageing.
