Arm lift and correction of the arms

It is possible to restore the former attractiveness to the hands, eliminate flabbiness, restore tone with the help of plastic correction of the skin of the hands

Arm lift and correction of the arms

Arm lift

There are many reasons why our hands lose their attractiveness over the years. This can be, for example, the abuse of high-calorie foods, which leads to a rapid set of adipose tissue. In addition, over the years our skin also loses its elasticity. This is the reason for the formation of the so-called “wings” (flabby areas concentrated on the inner surface of the shoulder).

Also,  arm lifting and correction may be needed in the absence of proper care. To make your hands look as attractive as possible, do not forget about comprehensive care. The ideal option is the regular use of moisturizers and nourishing products in combination with massage. This is the ideal prevention of sagging skin on the inner surface of the shoulder.

The presence of bad habits has a detrimental effect on the condition of the hands. Excessive alcohol consumption combined with smoking is very harmful to the skin. Beyond that, don’t forget about physical activity. The impact on the triceps zone will delay the process of sagging skin.

Arm lift and correction can be carried out by a highly – qualified plastic surgeon in Kiev Andrey Kharkov.

Indications for arm lifting

  Arm lift and correction is an ideal variant if you have the following indications:

  • Decreased volume and tone of the pectoral muscles (small and large), biceps and triceps muscles.
  • Decreased elasticity and firmness of the skin in the shoulder area.
  • Excessive amount of adipose tissue in the area of ​​the hands.
  • A rapid decrease in the volume of the subcutaneous fat layer on the back and inner surface of the shoulder.

Varieties of arm lifting correction

Before setting the date of the operation, the plastic surgeon of the clinic  Andrey Kharkov necessarily conducts a preliminary consultation.

The patient must necessarily pass a general blood and urine test, a blood clotting test. Allergic reactions to the used drugs are carried out.

Depending on which surgical method is used,  lifting and correction of the arms can be performed under general or local anesthesia.

The duration of the surgery is within 90 minutes. After the incision the excess fat is removed. In addition, excess skin is excised. By the way, the cut can be a classic T-shaped, elliptical or S-shaped.

After that, the surgeon slightly pulls and sutures the skin with a cosmetic suture. Absorbable materials are used for this.

In some cases, hand plastic surgery can be performed using special threads. These threads are composed of lactic acid or polypropylene. They are inserted through small punctures and, thus, perfectly tighten the tissue. However, this method is advisable to use in cases where excess skin is presented in a small amount.

Plastic surgery clinics practice two options for the classic arm lift – brachioplasty. This is, first of all, elepsy tissue removal. This option can significantly reduce scars after the surgery.

As far as extensive brachioplasty is concerned, it can be applied even with a large amount of tissue being removed. In this case, the scar is quite long. It runs from the armpits to the elbow. If there are appropriate indications, liposuction of the arms and shoulder girdle is performed together with brachioplasty.

In the first and second cases, the wound is closed with cosmetic stitches. Over time, they become almost invisible. The operation is performed under general anesthesia.

Rehabilitation period

During the first days after the plastic surgery, the patient stays in the hospital of the clinic under the supervision of plastic surgeon Andrey Kharkov. In the future, the rehabilitation process continues at home (the main stage lasts 14-16 days).

After brachioplasty, the stitches do not need to be removed, they dissolve on their own. It is imperative to use special compression garments for 4 weeks. Within a month, the patient returns to her usual life.

You must adhere to all the recommendations of  the plastic surgeon. Among these recommendations:

  • Sports and physical activity should be excluded.
  • Banned – visits to saunas, baths, solariums, swimming in public pools.
  • The area of ​​the arms and shoulder girdle must be sterile clean.
  • Contact sports are prohibited for two months.

If the patient follows all of the above recommendations, the recovery period is quick and easy.

  1. Diabetes mellitus.
  2. Problems with blood clotting.
  3. Hyperhidrosis.
  4. The presence of chronic and acute infectious diseases.
  5. Problems with breathing, heart and blood vessels.
  6. Previous surgery in the armpits.

    Frequently asked questions and answers about plastic surgery and hand correction

    Everything you need to know about plastic surgery

    Is it true that body surgeries are the most painful?

    It all depends on the individual characteristics of the organism, the patient's pain threshold. But if we take into account that most of the corrections in the body are done in moving and fixing tissues, eliminating excess muscle and adipose tissue - of course, this type of surgical intervention is more traumatic and causes more pronounced pain.

    Why wear underwear after surgery for 4 weeks?

    Special underwear after body plastic surgery creates additional compression (pressure) on those parts of the body that were amenable to correction. Compression is needed for the correct fixation of the result, for the fusion of all layers with internal fibrosis for proper tissue nutrition and blood circulation.

    When can the result of the operation be assessed?

    The complex result of hand plastics can be assessed after 3 months, since the healing process and fixation of the result are quite long.

    What affects the cost of a lift and arm correction?

    Of course, the volume and choice of methods for correcting age-related changes, their severity, an integrated approach to rejuvenation, affect. These operations are quite lengthy in terms of operating time, since the task of the surgeon is not to lead to complications, not to violate the individual characteristics of the patient.
