The skin in the upper arm may loose as a result of aging and especially as a result of weight gain/loss. This may cause an inconvenience appearance when you raise your arms and wearing short-sleeved clothing.

The solution is arm lift operation. While it is possible to tighten the muscle by diet and exercise, but it is not possible to tighten loose skin with sports when skin lost its elasticity.

Arm Lift Operation Techniques

Depending on the amount of sagging and patient's expectation, different procedures can be applied:

Arm Slimming with Vaser Liposuction: This option is suitable for people with good skin elasticity so that the skin will tighten on its own after removing excess fat. Procedure should be done by Vaser Liposuction method to tighten the skin after the operation.

Mini Arm Lift: First, arm gets thinner by vaser liposuction, then the excess skin is pulled towards the armpit. The incision is closed in the armpit area, so the scar completely stays under the armpit.

Standard Arm Lift: It is a complete removal of excess skin and fat on arm due to excessive loss of skin elasticity. The incision scar extends from the armpit to just above the elbow. The scar is only seen when you raise your arms since the operation is performed from the inner area of the arm.

What Should Be Considered After Arm Lift Operation?

  • It is allowed to take a shower after 2 days of the operation.

  • Corset is used for 1-2 weeks after the surgery and the arms are tried to be kept above the heart level to help the recovery process after the operation and to reduce the development of edema.

  • There is no need to remove the stitches and sports activities can be started after 4-6 weeks.

  • Arm movements should be restricted as much as possible in order to avoid enlarging the operation scar for especially 4 weeks after the operation.

Can breast lift and arm lift operations be performed together?

After a serious weight loss, sagging problems may occur all over the body. The sagging of the breasts is generally associated with arm sagging and the armpit area. Therefore, breast lift and arm lift operations are generally performed together and even recommended to be performed together.

In this way, the scars of the operation are both better hidden, and the recovery times are combined, thereby post-operative recovery will be shorter.

Is operation result permanent?

If there are no major weight changes in your body, your arms will continue to look stiff and smooth for many years after this operation.

If I gain or lose weight, will my arms sag again?

This area does not deform with a few weight changes, but there is a possibility of deformation in your arm area after serious weight changes.

Can loose arm skin get better with exercise?

Muscle gets bigger and arm skin may look tight slightly with exercise, but it is not a solution for excessive sagging.

Will there be any scars after arm lift surgeries?

A thin scar is formed that extends from the armpit to the elbow and remains on the inside of the arm after the operation. While this scar is red and puffy in the early period of the surgery (in the first months), it becomes pale and pink in the following period. Thus, this scar, which becomes less visible obscure, can only be noticed when you raise your arm.
