Arm lift in Tijuana, Mexico, also known as brachioplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure used to remove excess skin of the arms and the skin look smooth and firm.
Arm lift surgery has become important due to the increase of weight loss surgical procedures for quick weight reduction. Unfortunately, fast weight loss may usually leave sagging skin.
The brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that can solve this problem. When there’s not a lot of excess skin, you can practice a mini arm lift; it consists of a smaller incision made in the armpit and is less visible.
Surgery is simple! General anesthesia is applied and an incision is made in the upper arm, provided on the inner side. The shape and location of the incision varies on amount of skin to be removed.
In more complex cases, the cut may extend from the armpit to the elbow and arm on the side next to the body. The surgeon will make a Z-shaped incision so that the scar is not visible.
After sucking fat, arm skin will tighten and excess skin from the top is removed. It is closed with stitches. Finally, elastic bandages are placed in the arms and medicine is given to prevent pain.
After the first week, it is usual that the area starts to reduce swelling together with visible results. It is possible that the surgeon may suggest a routine of gentle exercises to strengthen the muscle.
Patients should avoid excess movement and sun exposure. The length of use of elastic bands will be indicated by Dr. Manuel Gutierrez.
