Before the Operation

Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.

We will do lab testing or a medical evaluation

During the Operation

  • During the arm lift operation, the surgeon will make incisions on the undersides of the arms and your armpit with the length and pattern depending on how much skin will be removed. This incision may only remain under your armpit or extend to your elbow. After the incisions are made, underlying fat tissue is removed and skin is tightened and closed with aesthetic stitches. To drain excessive blood or leakage, small tubes might be placed. After bandages were applied over the stitches, a special arm corset was dressed up.

After the Operation

After the arm lift operation is complete, you will see the incisions on your arms covered in special corsets. Medical personnel from our institution will remove the bandages and the small tubes after one day.

You should avoid lifting your arms above shoulder level for three days after the arm lift surgery. Physical activities such as exercises and sports will have to wait for three weeks after the operation. Our expert will be prescribing some medication including painkillers and antibiotics.
