How is the procedure carried out?
The main goal is the removal of excess skin and subcutaneous layers. As a result, arms will appear slimmer and will regain a younger feel and look. The surgery carried out under general anesthesia lasts anywhere between one to two hours and can be combined with liposuction. The incision is made on the lower part of the arm. The surgeon removes excess skin and if necessary, removes excess fat tissue. If the looseness of the skin is minor and if it is located primary in the upper third of the arm, an incision can be made through the armpit.
How long does recovery take?
Immediately following surgery, the patient will receive an elastic sleeve which has to be worn for eight weeks. The patient remains at the clinic for two days after the surgery and is then released into home care. At least for two weeks, the person should rest and ensure minimal movement and raising of the arms. Physical activity which is demanding on the top arms should be avoided for at least two months. The patient is able to return to work in approximately two weeks.
