Every woman’s dream is to wear clothes dug without exposing undesirable fats on the arm and be able to wiggle out without the movement swinging from the armpit to the elbow. As with the legs, the natural aging of the tissues and the variations in weight also leave their marks on the arms, requiring the use of long sleeves, even in the heat, to hide greasy skin and flabby skin.
This problem can be solved with plastic surgery on the arms, also called brachioplasty. If there is no flaccidity, liposuction is indicated. You can also perform the arm lift with liposuction.
Brachioplasty is indicated for patients who want to rejuvenate their arms, improving their contour and flaccidity. Plastic surgery on the arms has evolved a lot, with good results and scars becoming smaller and better disguised. In the arm lift, excess skin is removed through an incision made along the inside of the arm. The procedure lasts around two to three hours. The length of hospital stay is 12 to 24 hours.
It is worth mentioning that Dr. Rodrigo performs all his surgeries with all possible attention and calmness. Following an individualized surgical plan minutely for each patient, using all their technical capacity and resources to arrive at the best possible result, and only then, the surgery can be finished. Dr. Rodrigo only leaves the surgical center when he is sure that he has reached the maximum, the desired result.
In plastic surgery on the arms, the scar is on the inside of the arm, from the elbow to the armpit. The suture of the stitches has to be very strong so do not open later because it is a part that moves a lot. It is a somewhat controversial surgery because many patients question whether it is worth having a scar on their arms or not, because the scar is in a very apparent place, different from the breast or abdomen. But it still has a very good acceptance. For most patients, excess skin and sagging cause a lot more discomfort than scarring, which, though apparent, well done, is almost imperceptible.
For those who only have fat accumulation in the arm and want to make it thinner, liposuction is the best option. The skin retracts easily in this region, ensuring an excellent result. The procedure lasts around two to three hours. The length of hospital stay is 12 to 24 hours.
