UPPER ARM LIFT
Frequently asked questions
Type of treatment
With ageing it is possible for the upper arms to become droopy when the skin loses its elasticity and tautness. This allows unattractive extra skin to develop on the inner part of the upper arm. This unsightly sagging skin decreases the self-esteem and the quality of life of the affected person.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING UPPER ARM LIFT SURGERY?
If there is considerable sagging, the skin can be tightened. The M1 Schlossklinik plastic and cosmetic surgery doctors have proven methods and tightening techniques for excess and soft skin, such as subcutaneous fat tissue, at their disposal. With an upper arm lift the natural shape of the arm can be recuperated and an athletic and slim figure can be achieved.
WHERE DOES AN UPPER ARM LIFT SURGERY TAKE PLACE?
Upper arm lift surgery is done on an out-patient or in-patient basis, depending on what is indicated, and is performed by our specialists in plastic and cosmetic surgery in our ultra modern clinic. It can be performed under local anaesthesia, or so-called tumescent local anaesthesia, or under general anaesthesia.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BE AWARE OF AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
After the operation, the patient receives a special compression garment, which should be worn for six weeks. In order to achieve optimal results, physical rest is required for four weeks. After this time, light physical activity can be resumed.
It often takes time after plastic or cosmetic surgery in order for the results to become visible. With an upper arm lift surgery, you can expect to see immediate results: The excess skin is gone and the firmer line of the upper arm is immediately recognisable, even if the swelling and bruising that can occur has yet to subside.
