Consultation: The process begins with a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon. During this consultation, the surgeon evaluates the patient's medical history, discusses the goals, and examines the condition of arms. The surgeon will explain the procedure, including potential risks and expected outcomes.

Anesthesia: Patients will be administered anesthesia to ensure they are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure. Depending on the extent of the surgery, general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation may be used.

Incision: The surgeon makes an incision on the upper arm's inner or back part. The location and length of the incision depend on the amount of excess skin and fat to be removed. Sometimes, a shorter incision may be made if the sagging is minimal.

Removal of Excess Skin and Fat: Once the incision is made, the surgeon removes excess skin and fat from the upper arm. Liposuction may also be used to contour the area further. This step helps to create a tighter and more toned appearance.

Incision Closure: After the desired improvements are made, the surgeon meticulously closes the incisions with sutures, stitches, or other techniques to minimize scarring.

Some patients may choose to combine arm lift Turkey  with other cosmetic procedures, such as breast augmentation or body contouring, to achieve more comprehensive results.

  • Following an arm lift surgery, it's common to experience swelling and bruising, and it can take several weeks to months for these symptoms to diminish and for the ultimate results to become visible.
