Lifting de bras

ARM LIFTING

This surgery is retightening the skin of the inner arms.

It is intended for patients with sagging skin due to time, sun exposure or weight loss.

TECHNIQUE

  • Outpatient surgery or one night of hospitalization.
    General anesthesia.
  • Painless.
  • No bodybuilding on arms for one month.
  • The scar can sometimes be in the armpit (axillary scar) more often along the arm.
  • The scar that will become almost invisible a few months after the surgery (massaging and application of silicone gel will help)

To avoid the widening of the scar, avoid any sport involving the upper limbs for several months.

Jean-Marie FAIVRE

Post-operative suites:

  • Intervention under general anesthesia.
  • Ambulatory (one day hospitalization) or one post-operative night.
  • The intervention is painless
  • Postoperative swelling
  • Local treatment for fifteen days (steri-strips to dab betadine)
  • Scars evolve over several months. They tend to thicken and redden.
  • Also, it is recommended to apply silicone adhesive strips after surgery (CICACARE ®, SCAR ®-ELASTOPLASTESTOMPE, CEREDERM ®) for several months.

    For smaller corrections, the scar can be limited to the armpit.

    Most of the time though, the scar will be placed along the inner arm to tighten the total length of sagging skin.
