Arm reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgery also known as brachioplasty or an arm lift. Patients with heavy upper arms may simply have surplus subcutaneous fat, which can be effectively reduced by liposuction. Sometimes there is no fat, but loose hanging skin. In these cases, arm reduction surgery to remove the surplus skin is the most suitable treatment.
Many people however, suffer from both surplus fat and surplus skin on their arms. In these cases there are two options:
- The first is to treat by liposuction alone.The healing process causes some tightening of the skin, but patients need to be aware that this tightening is only enough to compensate for the amount of fat removed. This is the preferred option for patients who want to avoid the necessary scars associated with arm reduction surgery that requires skin excision.
- The second plastic surgery option for this group is to carry out liposuction combined with skin excision (brachioplasty). Liposuction causes extra contraction of the skin for patients looking for smoother tighter arms.
What Are the Results From Arm Reduction Surgery?
Before they come in for arm reduction surgery, London based patients are advised to meet with one of our consultants to discuss their individual case.
Arm reduction surgery improves the contour and shape of the upper arm increasing. Following the procedure, patients feel more comfortable in their own skin, allowing them to wear clothes and swimwear that they would have previously avoided.
After arm reduction surgery involving liposuction, patients may experience some bruising for about three weeks. There are some tiny scars, which are virtually invisible. With arm reduction surgery involving skin excision, there are scars from the armpit down the back of the arm, but they are well hidden and remain red for only a few months.
