Upper Arm Lift - your professional Upper Arm Lift in the Czech Republic

During an upper arm lift superfluous fat at the upper arm is removed. Inevitable scars are at inconspicuous areas at the inner side of the upper arm. This surgery can be combined with a liposuction. This can additionally improve your figure.

Especially women know the problem of limp skin on the upper arm area and it is no secret that the skin loses its elasticity in the natural aging process. In addition to that, weight loss can lead to remaining skin that contributes to a limp appearance of your upper arms. This can be especially burdening in the summer when you would love to wear sleeveless shirts and blouses.

A correction with an upper arm lift can harmonize your appearance. Under certain conditions the upper arm lift can be combined with a liposuction on contiguous areas.  This can improve the appearance of the contours of your body.

The doctors in our clinics in the Czech Republic are experienced in the upper arm lift and we from cosmetic-op are happy to support and accompany you during your upper arm lift.

About 4 weeks before the surgery, you should reduce smoking. Moreover alcohol should be avoided. On the day of the surgery you should not have your menstruation. About 2 weeks before the surgery you should not take anticoagulants (Aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid containing drugs). Not later than 3 weeks before the surgery the birth control pill must be discontinued. Before the surgery armpit hair must be shaved.

In order to conduct the surgery you need a blood count and an electrocardiogram. In case you want to have the results before your appointment with your surgeon, your general practitioner can provide you with them. In this case you can bring the results with you (the results should not be older than two weeks). However, it is not mandatory to conduct these tests beforehand. The tests that you need in order to decide if you are ready for the operation will also be made directly at the clinic.

Before the surgery you will be informed during a detailed consultation talk on how the surgery is done. During this consultation you will be informed about possible complications and risks. It is advisable that you write down all the questions you have concerning the surgery, before your appointment at the clinic.

The surgery will be conducted under general anaesthesia. Before the anaesthesia you will be advised by an anaesthetist about the risks, complications and possible alternatives to a narcosis. The anaesthetist will be present during the surgery. During narcosis risks or complications can occur, depending on previous diseases and your general state of health.

The affected areas are measured and marked on the skin before the surgery. The necessary incisions for removing superfluous skin are placed in a way that makes them inconspicuous.  Upper arm lifts of a larger scale are often combined with an additional liposuction. The remaining skin is then tightened by the sutures. To make sure that blood can flow off, drainages are inserted. After the surgery the affected area is bandaged with compression bandages.

Usually the drainages can be removed one to two days after the surgery. In order to support the affected area and the wound healing, you should wear the compression bandages about 6-7 weeks constantly. During this time you should avoid sports and other exhausting activities. Before you go home you will have a follow-up examination. During the first few days after the treatment the mobility of your arms will be limited. After about 2 weeks you can take up your ever-day activities again.

Usually your general practitioner can take out the stitches after about 10-14 days. You should only apply special scar ointment or crème on the scars. You can take showers again, as soon as the wounds are completely closed. Sunbaths and sauna should be avoided for 8-12 weeks.
Usually in the first few days after the surgery you feel some pain and a slight feeling of tugging pain at the sutures. This however subsides after a few days in the course of the wound healing. Pain can be alleviated by pain killers.

Like after every surgery secondary haemorrhages cannot be excluded. Therefore you should avoid taking acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin) and other acetylsalicylic acid containing drugs two weeks before the surgery. Despite aseptic measures inflammations can occur. Preventively you get antibiotics.

After a surgery there can occur blood clots in the main veins (thrombosis), these can be carried further and thus block a blood vessel (embolism). As prevention it can be considered to take anticoagulant drugs (i. e. injections of heparin), however these cause an increased bleeding tendency and in very rare cases grave dysfunctions of blood coagulation.

Even when the wound healing is normal, scars can initially become red or harden. After a while they will fade, they become inconspicuous. You will be informed on further risks and possible side-effects in a comprehensive handout 

The description of the operation is generally phrased and can’t replace the personal consultation with the cosmetic surgeon. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to show before/after pictures, due to the fact that this is forbidden by the Law on Advertising in the Health Care System.
