What are the risks with arm lift (brachioplasty) surgery?

There are risks with any surgical procedure. Fortunately, there not any extra risks specific to this operation. Your surgeon will be more specific when the procedure is applied to you.

The risks of surgery whether it be a minor mole removal or major heart surgery include slow healing, infection., poor scars, blood clots and bleeding, and changes in sensation. We do not keep patients overnight, which most prefer, but also reduces the risk of infection and the rare blood clot.

Patients generally prefer to be asleep during the operation. At the Cadogan Clinic we use TIVA, where you are only lightly asleep and are monitored using BIS, which records the brainwaves to accurately measure the depth of anaesthesia. TIVA is even safer than IV sedation.
