Arm, one of the most important organs of the human body, is subject to sagging. The causes of sagging are aging and fattening. Aging is the primary cause of sagging of the arm. Today, aging is not possible to eliminate. Arm fat is caused by weight gain. Another factor that causes sagging is gravity. These factors cause sagging in the arms of the person. Arm lift operations are performed in order to eliminate sagging in arms. Brachioplasty is the other name for arm lift operation. This operation can be applied to non-smokers, to middle-aged people who are on a fixed weight and to middle-aged people who are uncomfortable with the looseness in the arm skin. The operation duration is 1 or 2 hours. The patient can be discharged right after the operation. As with every operation, there are some points to be considered before the operation. First of all, one has to quit smoking. Then, the person should avoid the sun. Not smoking is also necessary after the operation. The dressing is applied after the operation. There will be stitches in the arm lift operation. And these stitches can be removed on the twelfth day or fourteenth day after the operation. The effect of the operation may disappear due to weight gain and aging after the operation.
Liposuction is necessary if there is too much fat deposit in the arm. If skin sagging is present, the operation is necessary. If the patient is younger and the arms are less drooping, it is possible to perform the non-surgical treatment.
