After weight reduction surgery or after liposuction, when extra skin fails to redrape or retract, it can result in loose hanging skin on the upper arms. Unfortunately, it's not easy to keep this covered all the time with clothing and is as such not very pleasing aesthetically. For females it's undoubtedly a cause of constant embarrassment and they would always be on the look out to get rid of it. This is where Brachioplasty or Arm tuck, which is a cosmetic surgery procedure, comes to the aid. This is a kind of arm surgery that improves the contours of the arm and gets them back to the lean shape they originally were in.
Brachioplasty removes the extra fat and skin using a long incision along the inner border of the arm. Where less skin resection is required an incision can be made which is well hidden in the axillary crease. The surgery is done under local or general anesthesia and patients can be discharged within the same day. Patients are briefed about the whole process at the time of counseling for this surgery. The designated surgeon will walk you through the whole process and any questions or apprehensions that you have will be thoroughly addressed. Patients are encouraged to be open with their surgeon as that will make the whole process comfortable and soothing for them.
After the surgery, usually no real complications are known to arise. In some cases however there can be some swelling in the arms, which will gradually subside in a few days or a week. Patients are advised to wear compression garments for 3 weeks. There is a scar line running from elbow to axilla which tends to fade out in a few months and almost blends with the skin around in that period.
