Whatis a brachioplasty?

A brachioplasty, also known as an upper arm lift, reshapes the upper arm to tighten loose skin and remove fat that often creates a “bat wing” appearance under the arm. Removing excess skin caused by weight loss or natural ageing can tighten loose skin that extends from the armpits to the elbow.

Liposuction is sometimes used in combination to achieve the best results. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful arm lift surgery and are satisfied with the results.

During an arm lift, extra skin and fat between the armpit and elbow are removed. As excess arm skin is removed and fat is trimmed away, the upper arms retain a good contour.

Brachioplasty techniques in Turkey

  • Upper arm liposuction: This is generally performed for patients who have no extra skin but who have fat on the upper arm. The patient will therefore not have an arm lift scar.
  • Arm lift with minimal incision: This procedure is generally performed for patients who have excess skin that would be considered minimal, the patient will need incisions, but minimal.
  • Extended arm lift: This technique is used for patients who were overweight, so there is a lot of extra skin. The incision will therefore be long, generally starting at the elbow, passing through the armpit and going towards the side of the chest.

Post-operative follow-up of brachioplasty in Istanbul

After an arm lift procedure, the incisions will be wrapped in a dressing. You may have drains to evacuate any excess blood or fluid. It would be a good idea for the patient to bring a friend or family member to help. For a few weeks, it is normal to feel some pain and swelling.

The doctor will remove your dressings a few days after the operation.

Do’s and don’ts:

  • For 3-4 weeks after lifting your arms, do not lift them above shoulder level.
  • For 4 to 8 weeks following an arm lift, do not do any physical or sporting activities with your arms that could stretch the incisions.
  • Take the medicines/creams prescribed by your doctor
  • Patients are allowed to walk immediately after the operation.
  • Do not jog or play contact sports for at least six weeks.
  • One month later, patients can start cycling.
  • For 1 to 2 weeks after the operation, patients should sleep with their arms raised on two or three pillows.
  • Patients should not shower until their doctor has given the go-ahead.

Ask the surgeon if the stitches will be removed. Some stitches are absorbable, so there is nothing to be done. But if the doctor has used stitches that do not dissolve, the surgeon will have to remove them.


If the patient does not gain or lose weight drastically, the results should last for many years. The human body continues to age, including the skin. This could mean that in the future, a patient who has had an arm lift may have loose skin.

If patients put on a lot of weight after the arm lift operation and then lose that weight, loose skin will return. In both cases, the resulting arm laxity will be much less than before the operation.

By getting rid of loose arm skin with an arm lift in Istanbul, patients will have a more toned-looking arm. As long as patients maintain a healthy weight and eat a healthy diet, the results of their arm lift can usually be long-lasting.
