Cosmetic arm lift surgery

Arm lift from Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery.

 

What is arm lift?

Arm lift or brachioplasty is an operation that tightens your arms so you can wear sleeveless tops again. Although the procedure is called ‘arm lift’ it should really be termed ‘arm reduction’ because it removes excess skin to tighten your arms. If you have excess fat as well as saggy skin then you may benefit from liposuction as well as arm lift. Research shows that facial cosmetic surgery increases body confidence and self-esteem.

Clients often ask for arm lift after massive weight loss, either through diet and exercise or gastric band or gastric bypass surgery. We often combine arm lift with breast surgery, tummy tuck and thigh lift. These procedures reshape your body after you have lost weight. 


What does arm lift involve? 

Arm lift is done with you asleep (general anaesthetic). We mark the excess skin with you in your room before surgery so you get a good idea of the amount we can remove. Liposuction is done first (if you need it) then we remove the excess skin and fat (in a suprafascial plane to protect the nerves) then close with dissolving stitches and showerproof dressings. After your procedure you can go home the same day or stay overnight, whichever you prefer. The main downside to arm lift is the scars. In most plastic surgery procedures we hide the scars (such as under your breasts in breast surgery). With arm lift we cannot hide the scars – they run down the inside of your arm from your armpit (axilla) to the elbow. So our advice is to carefully weight up the likely improvement on your arm size and shape with the scars.

Before treatment


First appointment

At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon – you will see them in clinic, they will do your procedure and see you for follow up. Your first appointment lasts around half an hour and includes specialist assessment and discussion of how we can help you improve your arms. We will go through your options for treatment and discuss what is involved and answer any questions you may have. We will show you photographs of our patients who have had arm lift to show you the type of outcome we can achieve for you.

After your appointment we will send you lots of information about your treatment options and provide you with a fixed cost for your package of care. We will then give you time and space to decide what you would like to do. When you are ready our office team will help you book a date for your procedure.


Second appointment

At your second appointment you will meet your surgeon again and discuss your procedure in more detail. We will go through all the important information about your arm lift, including how we do the procedure and the site and nature of the scars. We will discuss your hospital care, anaesthetic and recovery and your aftercare plan. We will also discuss the potential risks and complications of surgery, so you are fully informed.


Pre-assessment appointment

A few weeks before your procedure you will have an appointment with our nurses for a pre-operative medical. Our nurses will tell you everything you need to know for the day of your procedure, such as what time to stop eating and drinking, what time to come in to the hospital, and what to bring with you. If you have any questions about these details or anything else then please ask your nurse or feel free to email or call us.


Do your research

Read up on your treatment options before your appointment. Good sources of information are our website and the BAPRAS website (www.bapras.co.uk) and BAAPS website (www.baaps.co.uk). It can be helpful to read blogs written by people who have had your procedure. But bear in mind they only have experience of their own journey. Your expert Consultant Plastic Surgeon and our experienced nurses have looked after hundreds of patients and have an unrivalled level of knowledge and understanding to help you. Ask us anything you want to know.


Write down a list of questions 

In the week before your appointment make a note of any questions you want to ask. We will give you lots of useful information during your appointment. Afterwards we will email you with written information to help you make the right decision and make sure you are fully informed. Don’t worry if you forget what you wanted to ask. We will be seeing you for a second appointment or you can email us at any time.

Can I see photos of your work?

Yes of course. We will show you lots of photographs of our patients who have had arm lift to show the type of improvement we can achieve.


Take some ‘before’ selfies

You might like to take some photos before your procedure to remind you how you used to look! We will also do this on the day of your procedure for your medical records.


Can I get finance? 

The private hospitals we work with offer finance for your procedure. Please ask for further details at your consultation or click here for more information.

On the day of your procedure

 


Things to bring

Bring your phone and charger and a book or magazine. There is always a lot of waiting around in hospital so bring things to keep you amused. There is a TV in your private room and your partner, family member or friend can stay with you the whole time. Bring you dressing gown and slippers and you can stay comfortable in your favourite things whilst you wait.


Will I see my Consultant Plastic Surgeon on the day?

When you arrive at the hospital you will be shown to your private room and your nurse will get you ready for your procedure. At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon and you will see them again on the day of your procedure to go through some final paperwork, including the hospital consent form, take photographs for your medical records and do your pre-operative markings. Then you are ready to go.


Who will give my anaesthetic?

We only work with experienced Consultant Anaesthetists, all of whom are NHS Consultant Anaesthetists. You will have the opportunity to meet your Consultant Anaesthetist on the day as well. They will complete your pre-operative assessment to make sure you are safe and ready to go ahead. They will talk you through the anaesthetic and your recovery. General anaesthetic (asleep) can make people feel sick and surgery can be painful. However we take great care to make your procedure as smooth as possible and do lots of things to help you wake up without feeling sick or in pain.


Your package of care

 


All of your after-care is provided as part of your package of care, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. When you are ready to go home, the nurses will give you an appointment for your first check up a week later. Our nurses will arrange to see you again as required. You will see your Consultant Plastic Surgeon 3 months after surgery. If you have any problems in between appointments then don’t worry, just give us a call, speak to the nurses and come back to see us.


When can I go home?

Arm lift takes around an hour and a half (or a little longer if you are having liposuction as well) under general anaesthetic (asleep). You can still go home the same day or stay overnight, whichever you prefer. Some swelling and bruising is common for the first week or so. We like you to wear a lycra long-sleeved top as much as possible for the first 3 months after treatment to help your swelling and scars settle as quickly as possible.


Can I shower after my procedure? 

We use showerproof dressings after surgery so you can shower and wash your hair from day one. Just dab the dressings dry with a towel and replace your lycra top. 


When can I return to normal activities and work?

You can gently return to all your normal activities straight after your procedure. Most of our clients are back to most things (including work) a week or so after arm lift and are back to everything (Including the gym and exercise classes) in a month or so. You can drive as soon as you feel safe and able to do so.


When can I go on holiday?

This is a common question in clinic, particularly leading up to the summer. You could travel the following day if you need to. However it would be sensible to wait a couple of weeks. Most patients settle well and without any problems after surgery. But if you do have any issues then it is nice to be able to pop in and see us.


Sun protection and skin conditioning

Your skin will be more sensitive in the sun for a while after surgery. Look after yourself in the sun, particularly in the first six months after your procedure. Factor 50 suncream and lots of moisturising cream (or Bio-oil) are helpful. 


What our patients say about Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery


“Arm Lift”

“I am six months post op and extremely pleased with the results of my surgery. From the outset Mr Dunkin was very professional. He made me fully aware of the pros and cons of the treatment and the possible complications. I am very satisfied with the care I received from Mr Dunkin and the staff at The Nuffield Tees Hospital, they made it very clear that they were always available if I had any problems or worries.”
