Arm lift Tunisia: what is arm surgery?
Arm lift is an aesthetic surgery of the silhouette which aims to treat the problem of sagging and loss of skin elasticity in the arms.
Natural ageing and weight fluctuations over time lead to sagging and sagging skin on several parts of the body, especially the arms. This excess skin tends to be accompanied by an accumulation of fat.
Also known as brachioplasty, the arm lift can therefore remedy these imperfections by removing the excess skin located on the arms and by reapplying the skin on the inner side of the arms. A liposuction of the excess fat can be associated with the brachioplasty in order to improve and harmonise the whole figure.

Arm lift in Tunisia : what you need to know before you start
The first step in a brachioplasty operation in Tunisia is the pre-operative check-up. The surgeon establishes a thorough medical examination of your state of health but also of the skin characteristics of the area to be operated on (the inner face of the arms). This will enable him to decide on the operating procedure, the type of anaesthesia and whether or not liposuction is necessary. He can then present his diagnosis and inform you of the risks, the recovery time and the cost of the operation.
How the arm lift operation is performed in Tunisia
The arm lift in Tunisia is done under general or local anaesthesia. The operation lasts between 1h30 and 2h30 and may require an overnight stay in hospital. If brachioplasty is associated with liposuction, the surgeon begins by aspirating the excess fat (both on the inner and outer side of the arm).
Once this step is completed, the brachial lift is performed. This can be done using different techniques:
– Longitudinal incision. This is an incision that is made along the inner side of the arm. It is used for patients with a fairly large amount of excess skin. A vertical scar will be placed on the inner side of the arm. Just like a thigh lift or an abdominoplasty, the removal of excess skin leaves visible scars and one must consider the advantages of this type of operation compared to the after-effects.
– Horizontal incision. This is an incision that is made in the armpit. It concerns patients with moderate excess skin. The scar is therefore horizontal and hidden in the fold of the armpit.
Once the incisions have been sewn up, a bandage made of elastic bands is put in place to protect the arms.
The post-operative follow-up of aesthetic arm surgery in Tunisia
- Before leaving the clinic, the bandage is replaced by support sleeves that the patient will have to wear for a few days.
- Tightness and pain are generally felt. Painkillers are prescribed to alleviate them.
- There is usually swelling and bruising, which disappears after 10 to 20 days.
- You should return to work after 1 to 2 weeks (depending on the type of work you do). Sporting activities can be resumed after a month. In any case, it is recommended to avoid any sudden or brutal stretching.
- It is advisable to avoid exposing the operated area to the sun for the first 6 months.
- The final result is visible after three months.
As far as anaesthesia is concerned:
During the consultation, the anaesthetist will himself inform the patient of the anaesthetic risks. It is important to know that anaesthesia induces reactions in the organism that are sometimes unpredictable and more or less easy to control: the fact of having recourse to a perfectly competent Anaesthetist, working in a truly surgical context, means that the risks incurred have become statistically very low.
Indeed, it is important to know that techniques, anaesthetic products and monitoring methods have made immense progress over the last thirty years, offering optimal safety, especially when the operation is carried out outside the emergency room and in a healthy person.
As far as the surgical procedure is concerned :
By choosing a qualified and competent Plastic Surgeon, trained for this type of intervention, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however completely eliminating them.
