Get inexpensive Arm lifts in Mexicali to help you get rid of the sag and make your arms look shapelier and toned. For North Americans, the location makes sense as it’s just over the US-Mexico border, and easily accessible - perfect if you don’t want to travel too far.
Sometimes weight loss and sagging skin makes the arms look like bat wings, with a significant droop in the middle. This excess skin can only be taken care of with an armlifts or brachioplasty, which is what you may need if you don’t want to feel self-conscious about exposing your upper arms.
Both men and women get this surgery done, though women outnumber men for the procedure. Brachioplasty does leave scars as there is no way to hide them, but these are on the underside and a good surgeon will make sure that they are minute and with time they fade significantly, becoming barely visible.
Arm lift surgery is done for cosmetic reasons and insurance does not pay for surgery esthetic surgeries. When you have to pay on your own, it can work out to be quite a bit of money. If you find the rates unaffordable at your place of residence then you can check out places that are more affordable and Mexicali is one of them. It is easily accessible from the U.S. and Canada and is, in fact, driving distance from some of the states (Arizona, Nevada). It is just across the border from Calexico in California and people can theoretically walk across. Many flights also land at the airport so it is among the closest places where you can get cosmetic surgery done at an affordable rate.
Mexicali is the capital of Baja California in Mexico. It is a busy and prosperous city and there is a lot that you can see and do here. You can go to museums, parks, gardens, take part in sports like golf, go hunting, fishing, and racing and watch basketball. You can also go shopping at one of the many plazas, go to a casino, and indulge in food of all kinds and specialty craft beers. Mexicali has a huge Chinese population so you get excellent Chinese food and handicrafts as well.
It would seem simple enough to book on your own. But be warned – just as Mexicali has very good medical facilities it also has its share of those that are not so good and if you land up at one such, you may face problems. Although all surgery carries some risks as it is, why would you want to compound your risks by not checking your surgeons credentials. A simple check should reveal their qualifications and if they are members of professional organizations such as ISAPS?

There are various arm lift techniques, depending on the condition of your arms and your desired results. A mini arm lift involves only the skin on the top of the arms being surgically reduced. In standard arm lifts the cuts are made from the elbow to the armpit. The extended arm lift will go below the armpits and include some part of the chest wall as well. At times liposuction may be used to remove the fat and then the skin is tightened and stitched. Usually, the time taken varies from one and a half to three hours and this surgery is often done under general anesthesia.
Sutures are covered by tight bandages and sometimes drains may be used for excess fluid and blood. You will need to rest for few days and your downtime will be at least two weeks. Recovery can take as much as six weeks and final results may take up to a few months.
In the U.S. you can expect to pay USD 4,000 to USD 11,000 for arm lift surgery. The same surgery in Mexicali will range from USD 2,300 to USD 5,000.
