Harmonious contours of the upper arms

What is brachioplasty?

Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure used to reshape the upper arms by reducing their circumference and removing excess loose skin and subcutaneous tissue. This procedure can restore your confidence and comfort in wearing sleeveless clothing without discomfort.

Ideal candidates for brachioplasty?

  • Individuals with significant weight loss whose skin couldn’t naturally tighten
    Those feeling insecure due to loose skin on the upper arms
    Individuals with sagging arm skin due to natural aging

Preparation and procedure

Preparation for brachioplasty?

Complete preparation for surgery is done at our clinic and is included in the price.

It includes the following:

  • Laboratory tests
  • Internal medicine and cardiology examination with ECG
  • Anesthesiologist consultation

How is brachioplasty performed?

Brachioplasty is performed under general anesthesia. The procedure involves making an incision within the armpit and/or along the inner side of the upper arm, followed by the removal of excess skin and fat tissue. The results are immediately visible, with full effect achieved once swelling and bruising subside.

Recovery after brachioplasty?

After surgery, patients can expect mild pain, swelling, and bruising that reduce over several weeks. Stitches are removed between the 10th and 14th day. Recovery involves wearing a special compression garment and limiting physical activity for 4-6 weeks.

Risks after brachioplasty?

As with any operation, there are risks of an allergic reaction to anesthesia, bleeding and infection, but they are minimized when they are performed in a completely sterile room and when the procedure is performed strictly according to the protocol by an experienced surgeon.


How Long Do Brachioplasty Results Last?

Brachioplasty results can be long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable body weight.

As with any surgical procedure, there are certain risks, but these are minimized with the high standards of sterility and experience of our surgical team.

Recovery after Brachioplasty usually requires 2 to 4 weeks, during which it is important to limit physical activity. In the first days, you can expect a feeling of discomfort, swelling and bruising, which are alleviated with appropriate painkillers. Wear a compression medical belt to reduce swelling and support the new shape of your upper arms. Most patients can return to light daily activities after 2 weeks.
