Arm Lift Surgery in Turkey


What is an Arm Lifting?

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure aimed at removing excess skin and fat from the upper arms. It is typically performed on individuals who have lost significant weight, causing their upper arms to sag and appear loose, or on those who naturally have excess fat in the arm area. It is so popular nowadays as both men and women from all over the world would like to gain a younger appearance.

How is Arm Lifting Performed?

The arm lift procedure typically involves making an incision on the inner side of the upper arm, where the scar will be hidden. Depending on the needs of the patient, the incision length can differ. The surgeon will then remove excess skin and fat, and tighten and smooth the remaining skin. In some cases, liposuction may be used to remove stubborn pockets of fat. Once the excess skin is removed, the surgeon will close the operation site with dissolvable stitches, so you don’t need to get them removed afterwards.

The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and may take several hours, depending on the extent of work needed. After the procedure, the surgeon covers the area with bandages to provide compression that will help with swelling and encourage recovery. After the anesthesia’s effect wears off, the patient might feel sore, swollen and dizzy, but they are all temporary effects and are expected to heal gradually.

Are the Arm Lift Results Permanent?

Even though it permanenly removes the excess skin from the arms, the results of an arm lift are not permanent, and the upper arms may continue to age and change over time. Maintaining a stable weight and engaging in regular exercise can help to prolong the results of the procedure, but a touch-up procedure may be necessary in the future to address any new sagging or excess skin.

It's important to have realistic expectations and understand that while an arm lift can significantly improve the appearance of the upper arms, it is not a cure-all solution and will not stop the aging process. It's also important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in arm lift procedures to ensure the best possible outcome.

Is Arm Lift Surgery Painful?

Arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. That means the patient is asleep during the procedure and feels no pain at all. When it comes to the pain in the recovery period, there’s nothing to worry about. Once the surgery is done, your surgeon will prescribe pain-relief medications to help you handle the post-operative discomfort. The extent of pain experienced after the procedure can vary based on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Most patients report that the discomfort is bearable and subsides within a few days to a week after the procedure. Your surgeon will discuss pain management options with you and provide post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

How long does Arm Lift Surgery Take?

The duration of arm lift surgery can vary depending on several factors such as the extent of the procedure and the individual's specific needs. On average, arm lift surgery can take anywhere from 1-3 hours to complete.

What Happens after Arm Lift Surgery?

After arm lift surgery, it's normal to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the treated area. The extent of these symptoms will depend on the individual and the extent of the procedure. In this period, it is important to take short walks around the house as well as getting enough rest to encourage blood circulation to accelerate healing.

Your surgeon will provide you with post-operative care instructions and may prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort. Arm lift patients are generally not required to wear a support garment after the surgery. The surgeon will cover the operation site with bandages, which will help with the swelling.

It's important to follow your surgeon's instructions carefully and attend all follow-up appointments to ensure a smooth recovery. You should also avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities for several weeks after the procedure to give your arms time to heal.

It's also important to maintain a stable weight and engage in regular exercise to prolong the results of the arm lift. Your surgeon will discuss your options for maintaining your results and may recommend touch-up procedures in the future if necessary.

Like any other surgical operation, arm lift surgery comes with some risks. The risks include infection, numbness, necessity of an additional surgery or results that are not satisfying. So as to prevent any unwelcome situations, you need to contact your healthcare provider as soon as you notice the symptoms below:

  • Excessive swelling or redness on the operation site
  • Inflammation
  • High fever
  • Any opening on the incision line and/or weeping.

When Can I Go Back to Work and Other Activities?

Most people can return to normal activities, such as work and light exercise, within a few days to a week after arm lift surgery. However, it's important to follow your surgeon's instructions and avoid lifting heavy objects, or engaging in strenous physical activities. If your job requires you to use your arms too much, like if you are a chef, it might be preferable to take a month off. The exact timeline for returning to normal activities will depend on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Your surgeon will provide a more accurate estimate during your consultation and post-operative care.

Is Arm Lifting Safe in Turkey?

The safety of any cosmetic surgery procedure, including arm lifting, largely depends on the qualifications and experience of the surgeon performing the procedure. Turkey is known for having experienced and skilled plastic surgeons who offer high-quality arm lift procedures. However, as with any surgery, there is always a risk of complications. It's important to thoroughly research potential surgeons, including their qualifications, experience, and patient reviews, to find a qualified and trustworthy surgeon. Additionally, it's recommended to have a consultation with a few different surgeons to determine which one is the best fit for you and your needs. It's also important to have realistic expectations for the procedure and to understand the potential risks and side effects, such as scarring, infection, or dissatisfaction with the results. In summary, arm lifting in Turkey can be safe, but it's important to carefully research and choose a qualified and experienced surgeon and to have realistic expectations for the procedure.

How Much Is Arm Lift Surgery?

Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, can be a significant investment for those looking to improve the appearance of their upper arms. The cost of the procedure can vary depending on several factors, such as the extent of the procedure, the location, and the surgeon's experience.

Arm lift Turkey prices are generally considered more affordable compared to other countries, making it a popular destination for medical tourism. When evaluating the cost of arm lift surgery, it's important to consider not just the arm lift surgery cost, but also the cost of any post-operative care, such as pain medication, compression garments, follow-up appointments, and the aftercare service.

Bu makalenin amacı, söz konusu cerrahi müdahale hakkında size genel bir bilgi vermektir. Bilgiye dayalı bir karar verebilmek için bu seçilen prosedürün olası komplikasyonları ve riskleri hakkında daha fazla araştırma yapmanız gerekir. Komplikasyonların obez, sigara içen ve öyküsü veya akciğeri veya altta yatan diğer kronik tıbbi durumları olan hastalarda daha sık meydana geldiğini lütfen unutmayın.

Sigara içenlerin ameliyat ve ameliyat sonrası kanamanın yanı sıra daha yüksek bir enfeksiyon potansiyeli ile ameliyat sonrası yara iyileşme sorunları açısından önemli ölçüde daha yüksek bir riske sahip oldukları kabul edilmektedir. Hastalar ameliyattan iki hafta önce ve iki hafta sonra sigarayı bırakmalıdır. Ameliyat öncesi ve sonrası sigarayı bırakmaya yardımcı olsa da bu, uzun süreli sigara içiminden kaynaklanan artan riskleri tamamen ortadan kaldırmaz. Sigaranın ayrıca cilt ve yaşlanma süreci üzerinde uzun vadeli olumsuz etkisi vardır.
