Arm Reduction (Brachioplasty)
Thick arms are embarrassing. The arms appear convex while wearing a blouse. Liposuction can reduce the size of arms without leaving prominent scars. However if there is a lot of loose skin and sagging arms one may have to undergo brachioplasty to reduce the size of the arms. Here the surgeon will have to excise the excess skin and fat.
Do you need arm Reduction?
However if there is loose excess skin then it is removed usually in the shape of either an ellipse or a triangle. Sometimes a liposuction is also done on the arms to achieve smoother results. Once the excess fat and skin is excised, the incisions are sutured and left to heal. Sometimes a drain may be used to help the healing process.
If you are considering getting your love handles removed, we would recommend that you visit us for a personal consultation with your surgeon. This would give you an opportunity to discuss your aims and outcomes that you hope to achieve. The surgeon will explain the best options available, his/her recommendations and help you understand better the long-term benefits of this procedure.
Every patient’s need and expectation is different. Your surgeon will tell which surgical technique would be most appropriate for your needs and explain the treatment plan in detail. During this initial consultation you are expected to:
- Provide a detailed medical history including any previous surgical procedures; past and present medical conditions and a list of all medications or herbal supplements that you are currently taking.
- Have a complete examination of your face, including the skin and underlying bone.
- Discuss possible risks and complications of the procedure(s).
- Get an X-ray done possibly to determine the right procedure.
Following your initial consultation and decisions about the procedure(s) to be carried out, our surgical team will update you on pre-operative information, which tells you everything you should do and know before the procedure. Ideally, you may want to make arrangements for someone to help you for a day or two while you heal.
We will ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Usually we use general anesthesia enabling you to sleep throughout the procedure. Of course, local anesthesia with intravenous sedation is also an option in some cases.
Following your surgeon’s instructions to the letter during the recovery process is very important. This will not only promote the healing process but will also help you adapt to your new physical appearance. Do attend all follow-up appointments so that your surgeon can assess your long-term results and answer any concerns or queries.
