TIGHTER ARMS: ARM TUCK
What is Arm Tuck? What conditions may be treated?
Arm Tuck, or Brachioplasty, tightens and contours the saggy arms by removing excess skin and fat.
The surgery takes about two to three hours in a surgery center. Most procedures need general anesthesia, while some may require only local anesthesia.
When and What Results Might Be Expected? How long does the results last?
Immediate and dramatic improvement of arm shape and excess skin are expected. Results generally last years to decades.
What is the recovery like? When can I return to work and activities?
Postoperative garment is necessary for few weeks after surgery. Drains are usually removed within one week. Temporary tightness of the lower abdomen is expected. The usual recovery time is 2 weeks.
Any treatments to help maintain or enhance my results?
Minor adjustments, maintenance, or further enhancements can often be done non-surgically with VelaSmooth™ for cellulite, LipoSmooth MesoTherapy™ for residual fat, or LipoTight for lax skin. More extensive or permanent changes require further surgical shaping.
