Brachioplasty in Cyprus
The excess fat that is stored in the arm and makes many people feel self-conscious about it is caused by genes, extreme weight loss, or simply aging. This stubborn fat does not go away with exercise or healthy diets.
Brachioplasty in Cyprus aims at removing the saggy skin and fat from the arm area. The surgeon removes excess skin and fat and tightens loose skin.
Arm lifts in Cyprus can be performed in combination with liposuction to offer patients the maximum results. Sometimes brachioplasty may not be enough for patients who have more fat pockets, so liposuction is added to the procedure to remove that stubborn fat.
Surgery time: 2 – 3 hours
Long-lasting results of 10 years or more
Anesthetic: General or local anesthesia
Downtime: 1 – 2 weeks
During brachioplasty in Cyprus, our talented surgeon makes incisions on the inside or the back of the arms. The incision size depends on the amount of skin that needs to be removed.
Once the incisions are made the doctor tightens the skin and then stitches it up. Given that the patient needs it and there is stubborn fat, our surgeon removes it using liposuction. The pairing of arm lift surgery and liposuction gives amazing results.
After an arm lift surgery, you should sleep on your back with your arms a bit elevated. You can add pillows under your arms to achieve this elevation as well as between your arms and your body to make sure that you do not apply pressure to the operated area.
We always give detailed guidance to our patients as to what to do before or after their surgery. Find more information on what to expect after plastic surgery procedures.
Brachioplasty scars can be long if the skin that needs to be removed is a lot. However, the scar is thin and our surgeons try to hide them as much as possible. At first, the scar will be very obvious and visible and it will not fade right away. It might need a year to take its final colour that will be similar to your skin colour. You can take care of your scars using the cream that your doctor gives you and by applying sunscreen.
Firstly, we will ask you to get lab tests done so that we are sure everything is ok with your health. Two weeks before the surgery you should avoid smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages. Moreover, you should stay hydrated and avoid sun exposure. Make sure you have a good night’s sleep the night before the arm lift surgery in Cyprus. Finally, arrange for someone to transfer you home after the surgery, because you will not be able to drive.
