Arm Lift in Dubai
Arm lift or brachioplasty is designed to help change the shape of a droopy, sagging upper arm into a sculpted one. Due to aging the soft tissue in this area of the body becomes lax. The condition may also result from massive weight loss. The genetic factor is another reason why some individuals may develop an ill-defined, toneless upper arm.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons arm lift is one of the top four most popular plastic surgery procedures performed usually after massive weight loss.
An arm lift procedure is performed with or without liposuction. The object is to reshape the under portion of the upper arm to just above the elbow. The technique is safer and the scars are less visible than they used to be in the past.
Like any other cosmetic surgery procedures, an arm lift is performed in a highly planned manner with the person in mind. However, broadly speaking, an arm lift occurs in two variations according to the amount of incision required.
A person with a small amount of extra skin located near the armpit is the candidate for what is known as “minimal incision arm lift”. The one with more excess skin may need a more elaborate procedure with incision that runs from the elbow to the arm pit and even further onto the side of the chest. This is more frequently the case with persons who have lost massive amounts of weight following a bariatric surgery as they are left with significant amounts of skin hanging under their arms.
Depending on the extent of the surgery an arm lift typically takes one to three hours and likewise within one to two weeks of the surgery there is smooth skin over the new contour of the arm.
So if you are one of those for whom exercise is not proving helpful in your attempt to firm your droopy or sagging upper arms, an arm lift, not a gym, has a promise.
