What is Arm Lift?
Arm Lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper arms. It involves removing excess skin and fat, tightening the underlying tissues, and reshaping the components for a more toned and contoured look. Arm Lift is designed to address concerns such as sagging or loose skin, excess fat deposits, and lack of arms definition. Arm Lift helps individuals achieve firmer and more proportionate arms, ultimately enhancing their overall body shape and boosting their self-confidence.
Who is a good candidate for Arm Lift?
Good candidates for Arm Lift are individuals who have excess skin and fat in the upper arms that do not respond to diet and exercise. They may have experienced significant weight loss or have naturally sagging or loose skin due to ageing. It is important for candidates to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.
What should you expect during the consultation?
You will meet our team members, and your surgeon will personally evaluate your condition and will ask about your health history. You will have an opportunity to discuss treatment options and the recommended course of treatment, explore outcomes of procedures and the potential risks and complications associated and get your questions answered.
What should you expect during the treatment?
The anaesthesia team assesses your medical fitness before surgery. They can prescribe some diagnostic testing and medications. Once the medical fitness is declared, instructions for the day of surgery are given. On discharge, postoperative care and follow-up instructions are explained.
What should you expect during the recovery?
There can be some discomfort, swelling and pain after surgery. Post-surgery medications are prescribed for faster recovery. Our team will advise you on the care of the surgical site and feeding or activity restrictions that may be necessary to promote normal healing. Also, you can discuss specific general health issues to be monitored during recovery with your doctor. Periodic follow-ups are advised to monitor the patient’s health status.
How much does Arm lift cost?
Treatment cost varies based on the type of procedure planned and many other factors like other medical conditions, choice of operative facility, room choice etc. We also offer short-stay surgeries (like same-day surgeries) to save costs. While cost is an important consideration from your perspective, it should not override clinical considerations, and that’s why a balanced approach is advisable.
Will my insurance plan cover it?
Arm Lift surgery is typically considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance, as it is performed for aesthetic purposes rather than medical necessity.
