Arm & Leg Lift
Constant weight gain and loss, overexposure to the sun, gravity and aging cause the sagging of the inside and the back of the arms. Arm lift surgery can be performed as a result of these deformations. By this means the firmness of the arms is also provided by correcting the sags.
This practice is recommended only for patients with deformation and sagging at a much higher level because it will give rise to a strut-shaped scar at the back of the arm. Arm stretching can be performed by general or local anesthesia. The incision is opened for the fat and skin tissue that will be removed from the inside and the back of the arm and then stitched from the outside with aesthetic suture. The patient can return home directly after the operation. According to expert advice, bandage wrapping is recommended for the arms to stay high for several days. The stitches are removed in the 2nd week. General anesthesia is performed in leg lifting operation. An elliptical fat and skin tissue is removed by an incision extending backwards from the groin area. The upper leg skin is released and re-erected in the groin area.
In order to collect the body and blood fluids accumulated in the inner part, the drains are placed in the area. After the surgery, it is necessary to avoid any kind of sports activity in order to be careful about stitches. The patient can return his/her normal life in six weeks. Regular medical dressing practices allow you to continue your normal sports activities as of week 7. In the leg lifting procedure, being the stitch line on a moving area and exposures to gravity in addition to that may cause the scar to expand.
