Arm reduction & arm tuck in Kerala

Most women consider the shape of their arms a critical factor in the overall look. In the younger ages, it is the bulky arm that bothers women and as the decades progress, there may be drooping / looseness of the skin to deal with. In extreme cases as seen following massive weight loss, it may be called bat wing arms denoting the extent of excess skin. മലയാളത്തിൽ വായിക്കുവാൻ ഇവിടെ ക്ലിക്ക് ചെയ്യുക There is a definite upswing in the demand for better looking/ slender arms; most women opting for this treatment express a frustration in the inability to wear fashionable tops.

Methods of arm reduction

Reshaping of the arms is a rewarding procedure in terms of the results achieved. The treatment plan will depend on the balance between fat deposits and the skin tone.  In the 20’s, 30’s and early 40’s (unless there has been considerable weight loss) the aesthetic problem is the bulk due to excess fat deposits. The areas that are usually disturbing are the upper outer arms and the inner arms. If the skin tone is good, fat removal by Liposuction will help to achieve thinner arms. In the later decades of life, there will be some degree of skin sagging coexisting with excess fat. When the skin tone is not adequate, Liposuction alone will not create as aesthetically acceptable outcome. An arm lift/ arm tuck/ Brachioplasty will be required then. In this procedure, the excess skin is assessed and removed to achieve well toned thinner arms.

Liposuction of arms 

Liposuction is required in most cases of arms reshaping. The instruments used are much finer and a gentle technique is employed. The access points are only about 1 mm long and hardly visible. Following Liposuction of the arms, a well supportive dressing is done. The access point is left open for fluids to drain out faster. Swelling and bruising will resolve over 2-3 weeks. There is minimal discomfort for a few days.

 

How is the decision made?

A clinical examination will reveal the ideal treatment plan for reshaping the arms. A thorough discussion regarding the expectations, predicted outcome, risks and benefits is also equally important. 

Scars after arm reduction 

Liposuction alone leaves only tiny pin prick marks. In case of an arm lift where loose skin has to be removed, there will be a fine line running down on the inner aspect of the arm where scars are most well hidden. There are many modifications in arm lift depending on the extent and amount of loose skin. Short scar techniques are preferred whenever possible.

Recovery after armplasty

Arm reducion is usually a daycare procedure without hospital stay.  Fluffy bandages on the arms will be removed on day 3 and then will be followed by light supportive ace bandage/crepe bandages. Heavy exercises are not allowed for 6 weeks. Following arm lift upper body exercises are not allowed for 8-10 weeks. There may be numbness along the suture line which gradually improves over 3-6 months.
