Brachioplasty (Upper Arm Lift)

Increasing fat levels coupled with the effects of aging affects the look and shape of arms as well. There is a variety of factors that affect the arms from a cosmetic point of view and each case may require a different approach.  The most important thing to know is that arms form their own unique cosmetic part in one’s body and the number of patients visiting Plastic Surgeons is increasing. The surgery is particularly helpful to people who have:

  • Excess fat in the upper arms which is consistent with other areas such as buttocks, thighs etc.
  • Arms with hanging skin and muscles after undergone a massive weight loss diet.
  • Arms with wrinkles and loss of elasticity due to aging and sun exposure 

Techniques and Healing Process

In cases, where there is excess fat but with good skin elasticity, Dr Zavrides uses Liposuction methods for fat removal. This approach does not leave any scars since is performed through the insertion of a thin cannula (3-4mm in diameter) which leads to the fat layer beneath the skin. After the operation you will be wearing a surgical garment for best moulding. Most patients can return home the same day or the following morning at the latest if they went through a more extensive surgery. Most patients return to work after one week. Other cases are performed with Brachioplasty, where Dr Zavrides makes an incision in order to remove the fat and improve the tone of the muscle. Inevitably, this approach leave a scar in the inner part of the arms but it is not easily visible by others. The healing period for these types of procedures is around 7-10 days.
