Arm Lift Procedure

When you are consulted with one of our plastic surgeons, we will determine what type of reduction will be most suitable for you.  Liposuction intends lifting droopy skin of the arm. Two types of brachioplasty are carried out in Turkey.

A partial arm lift requires only a small incision in the armpit region, which may extend a short distance onto the inside of the upper arm. A full arm lift may require a longer axial incision down the medial arm to the elbow.

Both types of arm lift surgery involve liposuction. The removal of excessive tissue encourages the skin to shrink and to conform to the contour of the new arm.
