Brachioplasty, Arm lift

A brachioplasty or brachial lift removes excess skin from the armpits to the elbow crease. An arm lift can improve the shape to achieve a more toned and slender appearance. This surgery can get rid of loose skin on the arms caused by weight loss, aging or even heredity.

How does the procedure work?

This operation is generally performed under general anaesthetic and lasts between 1h30 and 2h30. It does not necessarily require hospitalization.

The procedure consists of a liposuction of the fat and an excision of the excess skin. The brachioplasty procedure, or arm lift, is performed in Lausanne, Switzerland.

After a brachioplasty, the patient may experience soreness and pain in the arms. Bruising and swelling are also noticeable. The bruises usually take 2 weeks to disappear. Taking painkillers will ease the pain.

When will the results be visible?

The results of an arm lift are noticeable immediately after the operation. This result is definitive 90 days after the operation: the swelling has completely disappeared and the skin of the arms is more toned. The results of a brachioplasty are long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and exercise. As your body ages, it is natural for your arms to lose some of their firmness, but most of the improvements made by your arm surgery will be permanent.

What are the after-effects?

During the first month, it is recommended to wear a support garment to improve the results. There are no stitches to remove as they are made entirely with absorbable thread.
You can start to exercice and be active between 4 and 6 weeks post-op. Work can be resumed after 2 weeks.

What are the possible complications?

The most frequent complications related to this operation are healing problems. To a lesser extent, hematomas, seromas, and infections. These are complications that delay healing but remain benign.

The arm lift specialists at our practice are available to you on site in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Je ne peux que vivement recommander la doctoresse Nordback et la doctoresse Miles pour leurs compétences dans leurs domaines. J’ai eu à faire à plusieurs médecins dans la région et aucun ne m’ont apporté les réponses dont je ne cherchais, ni les soins dont j’avais besoin. Je suis très contente des traitements que j’ai fait chez Maison Toa !
