Upper Arm Aesthetic: What is it?
Upper arm aesthetic procedures are surgical procedures that address arm sagging, stretch marks, the fact that the rear of the arms is bigger or more swollen than the front, and fat accumulation in the armpit. Particularly in persons who lose or gain a lot of weight, the appearance and shape of the arms can be a serious issue. Additionally, people who do not exercise a lot may have sagging arms.
How Are Procedures for Upper Arm Aesthetic Performed?
Although these procedures are typically performed for cosmetic reasons, the plastic surgeon determines during the consultation whether the patient is a good candidate for the procedure.
The rate of skin sagging and the thickness of the subcutaneous fat tissue are used to decide the arm lift procedure’s approach.
The skin may be too thick if the person’s skin tends to sag with frequent bouts of weight loss and gain. Liposuction can be carried out in these situations before upper arm cosmetic operations. The sagging skin is then surgically removed after this treatment.
Some persons experience this sagging of the skin from the armpit to the elbow; in such cases, a surgical scar runs longitudinally down the inside of the arm.
What Actions Need to be Taken in Preparation For Arm Lift Operation?
- If you smoke, you should stop at least one to two weeks before the procedure, and you shouldn’t start smoking again for at least two weeks after the procedure.
- You should stay away from strict diet plans because they can affect the healing process.
- Avoid exposing the surgical site to too much sunshine.
- Your doctor will give you instructions on how to get ready for the procedure, including what to eat, drink, take or not take in terms of vitamins and drugs.
