Old age, intermittent weight loss, gravitational sagging may occur in the back and inside of the arms due to gravity. Patients can get rid of these defects caused by daily life by arm stretching operation.
With this operation, an elliptical incision is made in the inner and posterior part of the arm (in the drooping area) to remove sagging skin and excess fat tissue. Aging, weight gain, weight loss, sun exposure reasons may harm the back and inner parts of the arm. These sagging and deformations are corrected with arm stretching surgery and tension of the arms is ensured.
This is a recommended method for patients with advanced deformation and sagging, as a mark will form at the back of the arm. Arm stretching is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. The elongated elliptical skin and fat tissue are removed from the inside and back of the arm.
The incision site is sutured with two seams, internally and externally. Then an elastic bandage is wrapped around the arms. The patient can return home on the same day. It is recommended that the arms are kept high especially in the first days after surgery. Stitches are removed after 1 week. The patient may start his daily activities within a few days.
Permanent weight gain, old age, and genetic structure like reasons can cause sagging on upper arms. One’s exercises can help to strengthen the arms and allow the arm muscles to develop. But the skin has lost its flexibility and does not provide any benefit to the accumulated fat. If your arms are sagging, the arm stretching operation is ideal for you.
