Arm lift Tunisia : aesthetic surgery of the arms

Arm lift in Tunisia: what is arm surgery?

Arm lift in Tunisia is a cosmetic surgery of the silhouette that aims to treat the problem of sagging and loss of elasticity of the skin on the arms. Natural aging and weight fluctuations over time lead to sagging skin on many parts of the body, including the arms. This excess skin tends to be accompanied by an accumulation of fat.

Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift allows us to remedy these imperfections by removing the excess skin on the arms and re-draping the skin on the inner side of the arms. Liposuction of excess fat can be associated with brachioplasty to improve and harmonize the overall figure.

Arm lift in Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step in a brachioplasty procedure in Tunisia is the pre-operative assessment. The surgeon establishes a thorough medical examination of your health but also of the skin characteristics of the area to be operated (the inner arms). This will allow him to decide on the mode of operation, the type of anesthesia and whether or not liposuction is necessary. He will then be able to present his diagnosis and inform you of the risks, the recovery time and the cost of the operation.

Are you a good candidate for an arm lift in Tunisia?

The ideal candidate for an arm lift in Tunisia is a person who has excessive and loose skin on the arms with an unattractive appearance and is resistant to diet and exercise. The procedure can also reduce the size of the arms by reducing the volume of fat in addition to the excess skin. During a consultation, one of our top plastic surgeons can best determine the suitability of the procedure for you.

What are my options?

Your options will be determined by the quality of your skin and the amount of excess fat and skin under your arms. Your surgeon will help you make the right choice based on your anatomy and preferences.

Liposuction: Liposuction of the arms is an option for you if your skin has enough elasticity to shrink around the remaining tissue after your fat is removed. If your skin has low elasticity, the sagging of the tissue will be even more pronounced after the fat is removed. Liposuction can also be combined for fat removal in a brachioplasty procedure.

Limited Incision Arm Lift in Tunisia: If the excess hanging skin is near the armpit, your surgeon may be able to pull up and tuck this excess skin into the armpit. This works best if you have loose skin in the lower inner arm area near the armpit and do not have too much excess fatty tissue.

A Standard Arm Lift: If your excess skin extends like a “bat wing” from the armpit to the elbow, the only option is complete removal of arm fat in a standard brachioplasty.

*Disclaimer: results may vary from one person to another depending on the morphology of the patients.

Procedure of the arm lift in Tunisia

The arm lift in Tunisia is done under general or local anesthesia. The procedure lasts between 1h30 and 2h30 and may require an overnight hospital stay. If the brachioplasty is associated with a liposuction, the surgeon begins by aspirating the excess fat (both on the inner and outer arm).

Once this step is completed, the surgeon proceeds to the brachial lift. The latter can be done using different techniques:

– Longitudinal incision. This is an incision that is made along the inner side of the arm. It concerns patients who have a significant 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 it is necessary to think about the advantages of this type of operation in relation to the after-effects.

– Horizontal incision. This is an incision that is made in the armpit. It concerns patients with a moderate skin excess. The scar is horizontal and hidden in the fold of the armpit.

Once the incisions are sewn back together, a bandage made of elastic bands is put in place to protect the arms.

  • *Before leaving the clinic, the dressing is replaced by compression 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 an edema (swelling) and bruises, which disappear after 10 to 20 days.
    *The return to work should be done after 1 to 2 weeks (depending on the type of professional activity). Sports activities can be resumed after one month. In all cases, it is recommended to avoid any sudden or brutal stretching.
    *It is recommended to avoid exposing the operated area to the sun during the first 6 months.
    *The final result is visible after three months.
  • As long as your weight does not fluctuate, you should expect that the results of your arm lift in Tunisia can last for many years. Your body will continue to age, including your skin. This can lead to loose skin in the future. If you gain a lot of weight after surgery and then experience weight loss, loose skin will return. In such a case, the sagging skin on the arms will be much less than before your surgery.

With regard to anesthesia:

During the consultation, the anesthesiologist will inform the patient of the anesthetic risks. It is important to know that anesthesia 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 anesthesiologist, practicing in a truly surgical context, means that the risks incurred have become statistically very low.
It is important to know that techniques, anesthetic products and monitoring methods have made immense progress over the last thirty years, offering optimal safety, especially when the operation is performed outside of an emergency and on a person in good health.

Regarding the surgical procedure:

By choosing a qualified and competent Plastic Surgeon, trained in this type of operation, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however eliminating them completely.
