Individuals who sustain massive weight loss often develop skin redundancy and laxity, which globally affects from head to toe. An arm lift, or brachioplasty can reshape the upper arm and enhance your appearance. The procedure reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and elbows, smoothes the skin and allows the contour of your arm to appear more toned. Remember, before considering an arm lift, your weight should be relatively stable and close to your ideal body weight.
After surgery you would experience some bruising, swelling and pain. Bruising will last approximately one or two weeks but swelling can take months to subside. You would see immediate improvement in your contour and your arm’s appearance will improve over a period of several months as the swelling subsides.
