Arm Lift

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Welcome to our arm lift surgery page, where we address concerns related to excess skin and sagging in the upper arm area. An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat deposits from the upper arms, resulting in a tighter, more contoured appearance. This procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals who have experienced significant weight loss or aging-related changes that have left them with loose, flabby skin in the arm area.

Arm Lift Procedure with Dr. Sof

THE PROCEDURE

Considering an arm lift to achieve firmer, more toned arms? Discover what to expect when you choose Dr. Sofiane Rimouche for your arm lift journey:

Consultation and Evaluation: Your arm lift journey begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Sof. During this initial meeting, Dr. Sof will listen attentively to your concerns, assess your arm anatomy, and discuss your goals for arm contouring. He will perform a thorough examination to determine if an arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is the most suitable option to address your needs.

Preparation: On the day of your arm lift procedure, you’ll arrive at the surgical facility prepared for your surgery. Dr. Sof and his team will ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed before administering anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Surgical Technique: Dr. Sof will employ advanced surgical techniques to remove excess skin and fat from the arms, creating a smoother, more contoured appearance. Depending on your unique anatomy and aesthetic goals, Dr. Sof may recommend either a traditional brachioplasty or a limited incision brachioplasty.

Traditional Brachioplasty: For patients with significant excess skin and fat on the upper arms, Dr. Sof may recommend a traditional brachioplasty. This procedure involves making an incision along the inner arm, from the elbow to the armpit, to remove excess tissue and tighten the skin, resulting in improved arm contour and definition.

Limited Incision Brachioplasty: For patients seeking to address moderate excess skin and fat on the upper arms with minimal scarring, Dr. Sof may recommend a limited incision brachioplasty. This procedure involves making smaller, discreet incisions in the armpit area to remove excess tissue and tighten the skin, resulting in a more toned appearance.

Closing Incisions and Recovery: Following the procedure, Dr. Sof will close the incisions with sutures and apply dressings as needed. You’ll be closely monitored in the recovery area before being discharged with detailed post-operative instructions. Dr. Sof will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure a smooth recovery process.

Results: As you heal from the arm lift procedure, you’ll begin to notice firmer, more toned arms and improved overall arm contour. Dr. Sof’s approach aims to deliver natural-looking results that enhance your body shape while maintaining balance and symmetry.

AT A GLANCE

Important Note from Dr. Sof: While you may observe initial improvements, the full results of your arm lift surgery may take a few months as swelling gradually subsides.

Guidance on Return to Activities: Your personalised plan for gradually resuming daily activities will be carefully determined in collaboration with Dr. Sof, ensuring a smooth transition back to your regular routine.

THE BENEFITS

You may choose to undergo a Arm Lift for a variety of reasons which are personal to you. These may include:

An arm lift effectively removes loose or sagging skin, often caused by aging, weight loss, or genetics, resulting in a more toned and youthful appearance.

Individuals may opt for an arm lift to enhance the overall contour of their arms, achieving a slimmer and more proportionate look that complements their body shape.

By addressing concerns related to flabby or disproportionate arms, an arm lift can boost self-esteem and confidence, allowing individuals to feel more comfortable and confident in their appearance.

Removing excess skin and tightening the underlying tissues can make it easier to find clothing that fits comfortably and flatters the arms, expanding wardrobe options and enhancing overall style.
