Experts in Arm Lift

An arm lift is a surgery that consists of removing excess fat and skin from the arms that have grown too much due to age or weight changes. When a person stretches their arms and notices a flap of skin and fat, they are a candidate for an arm lift.

There are two different types of facelift: for people with a slight excess of fat and skin, in which case the scar will be made in the armpit and will be completely hidden, or for those people in whom the excess of fat and skin extends almost to the elbow. In these cases it is necessary to combine a scar in the armpit with a longitudinal scar along the inner side of the arm up to the elbow. In some cases, the facelift can be combined with liposculpture of the arms, which will reduce the volume of fat around the arms and improve the result.

In these techniques, cosmetic surgery sutures are applied, which allow very good results to be obtained and are barely visible, as well as being placed on the inner side of each arm. In some patients who have undergone massive weight loss and have a large excess of skin on the chest contour, both surgeries can be combined, arm lift and chest lift, which will allow us to reduce the skin on the chest and back, extending the scar from the arm towards the armpit and from the armpit along the lateral edge of the chest to the abdomen.

Dr. Jesús Lago explains the arm lift or baquioplasty

arm lift or baquioplasty

There is a simple manoeuvre to find out and it consists of standing with your arms stretched out in a cross, if the skin hangs a lot from the arm and reaches up to the elbow it will be necessary to make the longitudinal scar from the armpit to the elbow, if on the other hand the skin does not hang a lot and is close to the armpit generally the scar can be limited to the axillary plane and can be combined with liposculpture.

Yes, it is necessary to wear pressotherapy sleeves on the arms to better support the wound and to give a definitive shape to the arm.

Generally it is not necessary if the procedure is performed in the morning. Most arm lifts can be performed as major outpatient surgery, i.e. under general anaesthesia but with a hospital stay of no more than 12 hours.

No, the scars, including the longitudinal scar hidden on the inside of the arm, are made with aesthetic sutures and fade with the passage of time. Of course, if we look for them we will find them, but in a normal situation with a person facing us, this scar is not visible.
