The arms and the inner surface of the shoulders are one of the most problematic areas in the body. Usually there is an excess of adipose tissue, a lack of skin tone. All this is combined with sagging skin. All this can be observed due to hormonal changes in the body, sudden weight loss or age-related ptosis. The brachioplasty procedure helps to correct the situation.
Brachioplasty is a type of plastic surgery that allows using a longitudinal incision to reach soft tissues, effectively tighten them and make hands attractive. It goes well with other body procedures:
Indications are the presence of unaesthetic folds in the arms and shoulders, sagging skin or excess body fat. In this case, the procedure can be performed both thin and suffering from obesity and overweight patients. Experts recommend resorting to brachioplasty after a sharp weight loss and sagging skin in this area.
Surgery is prohibited for those who suffer from chronic diseases of the respiratory and circulatory system, disorders of the heart muscle, and diabetes. Patients who have previously undergone surgery related to the lymphatic system should also not use brachioplasty to correct the appearance of their shoulders and arms.
Possible complications include scarring, an unpleasant sensation of tightness of the skin, loss of sensation at the sites of the operation, as well as the appearance of bruises and seromas.
The operation is carried out in several stages:
Intervention occurs through a long longitudinal incision extending from the elbow to the armpit itself. The doctor imposes cosmetic seams with self-absorbable threads, simultaneously pulling up soft tissue. The operation lasts 120 minutes under local anesthesia.
During the recovery of soft tissues after lifting the shoulders on the part of the patient, it is important to ensure maximum peace for cell regeneration. It is imperative to wear compression knitwear on your hands, which will protect against the occurrence of local puffiness. During the first 14 days after surgery, you can not engage in sports and other serious physical exertion. Give up bad habits and alcohol.
After a quality operation, the effect lasts about 10 years. It depends on the presence of provoking factors - a sharp weight loss, the presence of bad habits, inadequate skin care after surgery.
The cost of surgery depends on the volume of tissue being tightened and other factors. Tightening can be done in a clinic in Kiev, Poltava and other cities of Ukraine. Numerous positive reviews with photos indicate that this procedure helps fight saggy skin and retains the effect for a long time.
