Has recent weight loss or the natural aging process created loose, excess skin around your upper arms?
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a kind of plastic surgery that can contour your upper arms so you can wear what you want with confidence.
Tijuana Bariatrics in Tijuana, Mexico, can coordinate an arm lift by an experienced surgeon for a fraction of what you would pay in the U.S.
What Is Arm Lift Surgery? A Common Plastic Surgery Procedure
Brachioplasty is a body contouring procedure that removes excess skin and fat from your upper arms and tightens the remaining tissue. An arm lift is typically performed on older patients or patients who have recently lost weight.
The Arm Lift Procedure In Tijuana, Mexico
The entire arm lift procedure can typically be completed within two hours.
Recovering From Arm Lift Surgery What To Expect
You can expect swelling and bruising for about six weeks following your procedure; however, keeping your arms elevated while you sleep and during periods of inactivity can help reduce inflammation.
Your doctor will prescribe medication to help manage your pain and reduce your risk of infection. These should be taken as directed by your physician.
Avoid Strenuous Activity
You should avoid strenuous activity for four to eight weeks and restrain from lifting your arms above shoulder level for three to four weeks while your body heals. This will help keep the swelling and bruising to a minimum and allow your incisions to heal properly.
Monitor Treatment Site
While mild swelling, bruising, and pain are normal, you should still be monitoring your incisions and arms for abnormalities. Contact Tijuana Bariatrics if you develop a fever or notice redness or excessive drainage.
