Intro to Brachioplasty

Those “bat wings” on your upper arms can fly and go away! Not literally, of course, but practically and by a surgery! Bat wings are another name given to the deflated rolls of fat on your upper arms. Apparently, you can let them go away by undergoing a surgery called brachioplasty.
A brachioplasty, also called arm lift or arm reduction, is a popular body sculpting procedure that reshapes and tightens the back of your upper arm, from the arm to the elbow. Although brachioplasty is not a substitute for weight loss, it is still very helpful to remove excess skin and tissue and get a smoother appearance for the upper arm.

    • Having enough loose skin and elasticity.

    Preparation for Brachioplasty

    To get the best out of this surgery, you need first to find a good plastic surgeon with a proven record. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will review your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate. In addition, they might do the following:
    • Order lab tests to ensure that you are in good health condition.
    • Tell you to quit smoking because smokers are more likely to experience difficulties during and after surgery.
    • Check your arms and take clinical pictures to evaluate the results after surgery.
    • Tell you to stop taking certain medications, such as aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs.
    • You need to plan for someone to pick you up after the surgery and assist you during the first couple of days.
    • You need to avoid shaving or waxing your arm during the week before the surgery.

    Steps of Brachioplasty

    Your surgeon will need two to three hours to complete the surgery and they usually follow the next steps:

    1. Anesthesia

    During arm lift surgery, your surgeon gives you medications to help you relax and feel no pain at all. Intravenous sedation and general anesthesia are two main options.

    2. Incisions Making

    Your surgeon will make an incision on the inside or back of your arm. Sometimes, the incision runs from the underarm (axilla) to just above the elbow. The length and pattern of the incision are determined by the amount and location of excess skin that your surgeon intends to remove.

    3. Incision Closure

    Finally, your wounds will be closed with absorbable sutures or stitches, which will be removed within one to two weeks later.

    Recovery After Brachioplasty

    You may be able to return home the same day, but in some circumstances, you may need to stay overnight in the hospital. Luckily, you will be able to see the results of your brachioplasty (arm lift) immediately, and they will last as long as you maintain an ideal weight. The recovery phase after brachioplasty also includes:
    • You are expected to resume normal activities after one or two weeks, but you still need a few weeks to fully recover.
    • Your doctor may attach a drainage tube to the wound to prevent fluid build-up.
    • Avoid intense activities or anything that puts too much strain on your arms after the surgery.
    • Expect to see some bruising or swelling in the site during the first couple of days after surgery.
    • You can wear compression garments to reduce swelling.

    Risks of Brachioplasty

    Brachioplasty (arm lift) is a relatively safe surgery. However, as the case with all surgeries, brachioplasty still carries some potential risks, such as:

    • Anesthesia-related complications
    • Infection, blood blots, or bleeding
    • Swelling and damage to lymphatic tissue
    • Numbness or nerve damage
    • Persistent pain
    • Poor wound healing
    • Visible scars

      The day we contacted the clinic they explained everything to us very thoroughly and took care of all the bookings for us. I didn't have to stress about were I'll be staying or if it's close/far from the hospital or how will i get there, it was all taken care off. From the moment we arrived in the airport we were taken care off very nicely. There was a driver waiting for us outside, he took all our luggage and he drove us to the hotel. The next morning the driver was waiting patiently downstairs, we needed a chash machine & a place to exchange ...

      I would highly recommend this centre due to my excellent experience with my rhinoplasty surgery and everyone who was involved including the doctors, assistants, nurses and drivers. They are super friendly, helpful and understanding and available to contact whenever needed. I would especially like to thank Mr. Feras and Mr. Hashim for their help and support throughout the time of my surgery. The environment of both the hospital and the clinic was really clean and organised. Overall I had an outstanding experience and have no complaints.
