THROUGH VARIOUS SURGICAL TECHNIQUES WE CAN IMPROVE THE SILHOUETTE OF YOUR ARMS TO ELIMINATE THE EXCESS OF TISSUES (GREASE AND SKIN)
We all want to have well-defined and stylized arms. For some people, the upper part of the arms lacks definition, presents flaccidity and accumulation of fat.
In less severe cases, this is due to the natural changes that aging brings, to the loss of elasticity of the skin, to the hereditary factor and to the effect of the force of gravity.
In more severe cases, the upper arm presents with an exaggerated excess of skin, possibly combined with lumps caused by the accumulation of fat. These symptoms are more common in patients who have experienced marked weight fluctuations or who have lost many pounds after bariatric surgery.
For those people with a slight accumulation of fat and who have good skin elasticity, losing weight and exercising can be the answer.
In Nubody we have different surgical techniques with which you can improve the silhouette of your arms to eliminate excess tissue (skin fat) one of these techniques is brachioplasty
The brachioplasty allows to eliminate the excess of skin and the accumulated fat in the upper part of the arms. The skin of this area has several problems; It is extremely thin, has little elasticity and is not exactly vulnerable to exercise. Therefore, the last alternative available to correct the flaccidity of this area is brachioplasty, which removes excess skin and fat to restore the shape of the arm. This surgery has several modalities which differ according to the type of incision that is made. The selection of the type of incision will depend on the amount of excess skin and accumulated fat that the patient has. It must be taken into account that the length of the incision is proportional to the amount of loose skin that exists. That is, the more loose skin the longer the incision will be.

How to know if I am a candidate for this procedure?
A good candidate has significant excess skin on the upper arms. Most complaints from patients are that they need to use larger shirts to accommodate excess skin or that they do not feel comfortable wearing sleeveless clothing.
What are the care that must be taken?
It is necessary to use a bolero-type girdle on the arms, which provides compression. The girdle is worn for about three to four weeks after surgery.
The wounds need at least a year to mature. During this time you have to help them to make the best possible. We recommend the use of sunscreen and silicone patches as postoperative therapies. The sunscreen protects wounds from ultraviolet rays, which can cause them to become dark.
Massages with lymphatic drainage are integrated to accelerate the process of inflammation.
When can you return to perform physical activity?
The patient can begin to do cardiovascular exercise after the third week. Exercises with weights, for the arms, is recommended after the sixth week to avoid putting more strain on the wounds, which are still maturing.
When can you return to normal activities?
The time required to return to work is one to two weeks, depending on how extensive the surgery is. By then, all sutures have been removed and the primary inflammation has decreased. The first days, after surgery, you can experience inflammation, bruising, moderate pain, numbness of the area and little flexibility, which will recover little by little.
