Before Arm Lift abroad
After consulting with the surgeon and discussing the desired goals, the surgeon is likely to advise patients to make some minor lifestyle adjustments ahead of the procedure, such as reducing alcohol consumption and stopping smoking.
How is it performed
The surgeon will make an incision beneath the inner arm, from the elbow to the armpit. By making the incision under the arm, it makes the scarring less noticeable once the wound heals after the surgery. After making the incision, the surgeon removes the excess skin and fat, before closing the site with sutures.
- Local anesthetic with sedation.
The Arm Lift takes 1 to 3 hours.
What to expect after Arm Lift
After the procedure, patients are often allowed to return to the hotel. The patient should rest and follow any hygiene instructions from the surgeon. The patient may need to wear a compression garment for the first few weeks after the surgery. Patients should avoid smoking, and any physical activities which will disrupt the healing process.
For the first 10 to 14 days after an arm lift, the arms will be quite swollen. Patients may need to wear supportive wraps for up to 6 weeks while the swelling improves. The surgical site can take up to one year to fully heal.
