The upper arms tend to droop down and sag after significant weight loss, aging or due to genetics. This can make some people feel very self-conscious and unable to wear clothing that exposes their upper arms. People often find that this excess skin is difficult to lose through exercise and a healthy diet alone, and therefore choose to have an arm lift to correct it.

. Boost your self-esteem

How is an arm lift procedure performed in Iran?
The arm lift procedure usually takes between 90 to 120 minutes. It may be done as a day case, but is more commonly an overnight stay in hospital. Before you come in for your arm lift, you must follow your surgeon’s instructions for eating, drinking and taking medications the night before your surgery. It is essential that you follow this guidance.
You will have to sign a consent form before having your surgery. You will sign this either on the day of your surgery or during your pre-operative assessment a week before. After you sign your consent form, your surgeon will draw some lines on your arms, and discuss the goals of the arm lift.
Your anesthetist will then give you the anesthetic. For an arm lift, you can either have a general anesthetic or local anesthetic with IV (intravenous) sedation. The type of anesthetic you are given will depend on your surgeon’s practice. You and your surgeon will discuss which anesthetic to use during your first consultation.
After your anesthetist gives you your anesthetic, the surgeon will clean and put drapes over the treatment area before making the incisions.
The incisions for a brachioplasty can either be made in the armpit or along the back of the arm. These positions allow your surgeon to conceal these scars well.
There are three types of incisions that your surgeon can use:
For a mini brachioplasty, your surgeon will make a single incision in the shape of a crescent under the armpit. The surgeon may, however, extend the incision into the arm. This is a T-line lift.
This technique is most suitable for people with minimal excess skin and fat in the uppermost region of the arm.
A mini brachioplasty results in a smaller amount of scarring than a standard brachioplasty. Your surgeon will hide the scar well within the armpit. However, the results are only effective in patients with minimal excess skin and fat.
This technique involves making two separate incisions:
Inner arm incision – this goes from the armpit to just above the elbow, between the biceps and triceps.
Back of the arm incision– this goes from the armpit to just above the elbow along the tricep region.
It is most suitable for those with a moderate amount of excess skin and fat. Your surgeon will remove the excess skin and fat, then tighten and reshape the underlying tissues.
The scar is well hidden when the arms are held at the side, and this technique is thought to achieve a better result.
The incision for an extensive brachioplasty runs from the elbow, through the armpit, and into the side of the chest.
After your surgeon makes the incision, they will remove excess skin and fat, then tighten the underlying tissues. They will either remove the excess fat directly, or use liposuction to remove it.
As this technique results in maximal scarring that extends to the side of the chest, surgeons do not often use it.
Your surgeon will discuss the different techniques and suggest which one will achieve the best results for your body.
Your surgeon will close the incisions using external stitches. They will then wrap a tight bandage around your upper arms. You may also have some small drainage tubes put under the skin to help reduce swelling and bruising. Usually, you surgeon will remove these drains before you go home.
After your arm lift procedure, you will be taken to the ward to recover from the anesthetic. You will either be able to go home on the same day but it is likely that you will have to spend one night in hospital following the procedure. You should be able to go home to rest the next day.
What are the main arm lift risks & complications?
Before you consent to having surgery, it is important that you consider the arm lift risks and complications. Our surgeons recommend that you take two weeks after the initial consultation to think about all aspects of an arm lift procedure before you have the surgery.
Educating yourself on the risks of this procedure is really important and will allow you to make a fully informed decision. The risks are as follows:
A seroma is a pocket of fluid that collects under the skin. This pocket often develops under or around the area where you have your incision. To reduce the risk of this developing, your surgeon will put drains into your arms after surgery to collect the fluid. Although not very harmful, if a seroma becomes too large, your surgeon may have to drain the excess fluid.
As an arm lift requires your surgeon to make surgical incisions, you will definitely be left with a scar. The incision lines for this procedure are purposely put in places that are as discreet as possible. If scarring is a particular issue for you, you may wish to consider having the mini brachioplasty which produces the least amount of scarring.
You should also be aware that there may also be some asymmetry in the scars between the two arms, but your surgeon will do their best to reduce this.
Some patients experience more severe forms of scarring called keloid or hypertrophic scars. It is important to notify your surgeon if you have had this type of scarring in the past.
After an arm lift, there may be a large amount of swelling and bruising in the arms. The skin area around the wound may appear darker or lighter in color. You may also find that you experience some swelling of the hands. This should all resolve over time, typically within two to three weeks.
You must take any sort of infection seriously if it occurs. In most cases, the infections are only mild wound infections that your surgeon can treat with some antibiotics. If a more serious infection occurs, you may need to go back to the hospital for treatment. It is important that you flag up any signs of infection which can include:
. Any fluid or pus coming out of the incision
. An increasing amount of pain that is not relieved by medication
. Foul smelling discharge
. A temperature greater than 38°C
. Redness or swelling that is starting to spread away from the incision line.
During an arm lift procedure, areas around the arms might lose their blood supply. If this happens, the area that is affected may die. This is a very rare complication and is called necrosis. It can happen in the fat, tissue or skin of the arms. The necrosis makes the area under the skin firm and uneven in appearance. You will need further surgery to remove these areas if they do develop. The risk of this happening increases if you are a smoker. This is one of the reasons why you must be smoke and nicotine-free for at least 6 weeks before and after your arm lift.
After your procedure, your surgeon will close the incisions with either absorbable or non-absorbable sutures. There is a risk that these may cause irritation, poke through the skin or become visible. If this happens, your surgeon will remove them.
It is common to experience some minor bleeding after your operation. Bleeding can, however, become more severe. This tends to happen during or immediately after your operation, but can occasionally occur up to 2 weeks later. You may need to have surgery to correct this.
Arm lift aftercare
It is important that you know what to expect after your treatment. Our surgeons will give you specific instructions for your arm lift aftercare process. This will include timeframes for when you can go back to work, exercise andbnb driving.
Before you are sent home, a post-operative appointment will be arranged for you. During this appointment, your surgeon will remove any non-absorbable stitches, examine your arms and see to any complications that may have risen.
Postoperative scar care is also important with this type of operation. The patient must be monitored for 24 hours after the surgery and the special compression dressing can be removed after 8 days. The scars are treated with ointment and silicone dressing.
