Arm Lift in Winnipeg, MB
Do you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable about your arms’ appearance? Some people develop loose, excess, saggy skin due to weight fluctuation, the natural effects of gravity and aging, loss of skin elasticity, or genetics while others have healthy firm skin with excess fat in their arms. Regardless of the issues, many people feel uncomfortable wearing short sleeves or tighter tops due to the size of their arms.
Arm Lift surgery also known as brachioplasty surgery is popular for both men and women who want to eliminate excess skin and improve the overall definition, contour, and underlying muscle tone of their arms. If you are tired of hiding your arms due to loose-hanging excess skin and fat, an Arm Lift may be an excellent solution for you.
For those patients with excess fat that is resistant to exercise or weight loss, liposuction alone or liposuction combined with BodyTite to sculpt and slim the upper arms into better proportion with their bodies may be the best option.
An arm lift is performed to:
- Reduce excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow
- Reshape your arm to result in smoother skin and contours
- Results in a more toned and proportionate appearance
Dr Islur performs a special & unique type of arm lift called a Preservation Arm Lift surgery.
A Preservation Arm Lift surgery results in a more defined, contoured upper arm with little to no loose skin or fat remaining between the elbow and armpit. The incision line is strategically placed in hidden areas on the underside or inside of your arm. Your incision lines will fade and smooth out as you heal over time. Combining skin removal with significant liposuction to the entire upper arm and shoulder area this technique allows greatest preservation of lymphatic circulation, blood supply, and sensation to the upper arm versus traditional arm lifts. This leads to the greatest possible outcome in terms of contouring the entire upper arm with the least risk of complications. Preservation arm lift surgery typically takes 2.5 to 3 hours to complete and is performed under general anesthetic. You will be able to go home shortly after surgery.
Your procedure will take place at Dr. Avi Islur’s state of the art cosmetic surgery centre, The First Glance Aesthetic Clinic & Surgery Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
What is Recovery Like After Arm Lift Surgery?
As with most aesthetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period will be different for each patient, depending on the extent of the surgery and the patient’s health. Following your surgery, dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions, and a compression garment will need to be worn to minimize swelling and bruising. You will be able to return to work within 1-2 weeks, taking into consideration not to do any heavy lifting or strenuous exercise involving your arms for the first 8 weeks. This will help to improve the healing and minimize scarring.
