Arm lift Tunisia
Arm lift or brachioplasty is a surgical procedure to tighten and improve the contour in the area of the upper arms. It is a purely cosmetic procedure performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. The reasons for an upper arm lift are unsightly excess skin that appears saggy and wrinkled and shows up in the area of the inner sides of the upper arms, especially when the arms are raised at a 90° angle. This blemish can be a psychological burden for patients and is caused by the following factors, among others :
Natural aging process with sagging of the skin
Congenital weakness of the connective tissue
Severe weight loss.
So, this intervention improves the contours of the upper arms by :
Removing excess skin
Tightening underlying tissues
Achieving better definition and shape.
Moreover, this surgery allows the patient to regain self confidence and feel comfortable.

The best candidates for this surgery
Arm lift surgery can be performed on many types of patients. Both men and women of normal
weight with more excess skin than fat are very good candidates for brachioplasty.
It is ideal for people who have lost large amounts of weight, but whose skin has not adapted to their new body shape. You might also consider an arm lift if :
You have lost the desired weight, but have been left with redundant excess skin underneath
You have significant skin laxity in your upper arms due to age.
You are a healthy person with no medical conditions that would prevent you from healing or increase the risks if you undergo this surgery./p>
You do not smoke.
You are committed to a healthy diet and lifestyle and have realistic expectations.
How to prepare for a brachioplasty ?
It is the surgeon who will determine if arm lift surgery is ideal for you. If you have certain health problems, the surgical risks may not be worth it. He will also ensure that you have realistic expectations for the outcome of brachioplasty. You will also need to commit to a healthy lifestyle to promote healthy healing afterwards.
You are also not an ideal candidate if you are not at a stable weight. If you lose a lot of weight after your plastic surgery procedure, new areas of sagging skin may appear. If you gain a lot of weight, you can significantly damage your weakened skin which can cause stretch marks and wide scars.
If you smoke, you will have to refrain from smoking at least a few weeks before undergoing your arm lift Tunisia. Smoking significantly increases the risks of complications and can delay the healing process. The plastic surgeon will ask you to stop taking any medications before undergoing the procedure. It is worth asking about over-the-counter medications such as aspirin. You should also avoid eating and drinking anything after midnight the night before the day of the intervention.
How is it realized ?
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia. If liposuction is to be done as well, it
happens first. For a limited incision arm lift, it is made in the crease of the arm, near the
armpit. For a full arm lift, the incision extends from the elbow area to the armpit. This is
determined by the amount of excess skin you have.
A compression bandage is then applied.
