In our daily lives, we can do most movements with our arms. As with other tissues, our arms cannot fight the effects of ageing and gravity. Over time, loosened skin of our arms begins to sag. The skin of the arms that has lost its firmness, sagged or begun to sag can impact our confidence and thus, choice of clothing. The problems we experience due to sagging arms can be resolved with arm lift surgery performed by specialist surgeons at our hospital, Apex Clinic.
Arm lift surgery is performed in middle-aged and older people with sagging and loosened skin and tissue of the arm, provided that they have no genetic disorders.
The duration of arm lift surgery performed at our hospital is approximately 1 to 1.5 hours and liposuction can be used during surgery, if necessary.
Any conditions that may hinder the operation to be performed at our hospital are checked by an anesthesiologist and necessary blood tests are performed.
Patients that undergo arm lift surgery at our hospital can eat 4 hours after the operation and be discharged the same day. The patient can shower 1 to 2 days after surgery. Problems such as edema and swelling that may occur at the operation site take 2 to 3 weeks to heal. However, patients who undergo arm lift surgery do not have to take a step back from their daily lives for a long time, and can do light exercises.
