Sagging of the exteriors and interiors of the arm occurs due to factors of : weight fluctuations, ageing, over-exposure to sunlight and gravity. Arm sagging becomes more noticeable when slightly lifting the arms while a sleeveless shirt is worn. This problem is one of the greatest nightmares for women above age 40. The sagging skin cannot be corrected with liposuction only. It is also necessary to remove the excessive skin.
Will I have permanent scars on the incision place? If yes, how will they look like?
In brachioplasty, the scars of the incision start from the elbow and reach the armpit from the interiors of the arms and they are permanent. They are not noticeable when arms are closed.
When should I have a brachioplasty operation?
If you have lost excessive weight following a bariatric surgery, you must necessarily wait for your body mass index to drop below 25. You can have this operation if you remain around that weight for at least 6 months.
Brachioplasty operation is performed in a surgery room under local or general anesthesia. Smoking should be stopped 4 weeks in advance of the operation. Aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs or herbal food supplements shouldn’t be consumed.
What about the drains and dressing after the operation?
Drains placed under the skin are generally removed out the day after the surgery. Stitches will be covered with a dressing until the wound heals.
Do I need to have the stitches removed out after a brachioplasty operation?
You generally don’t need to have the stitches removed after a brachioplasty operation since self-dissolving stitches are used.
What are the complications of a brachioplasty operation?
As in all surgical operations, there may be delay in wound healing or fat necrosis problems after a brachioplasty operation.
