If you are tired of covering up your arms because you are embarrassed to show them off, having an arm lift in Mexico City could give you the toned upper arms you desire. Many people have sagging, drooping upper arms that no amount of exercise and diet can seem to correct. An arm lift, also referred to as a brachioplasty, can correct this problem and give you the confidence you need bare your arms. To achieve the best results, this procedure is sometimes performed in conjunction with liposuction, resulting in toned, sculpted upper arms.
Both men and women can be good candidates for an arm lift. You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you have lost a significant amount of weight and have large amounts of sagging skin left behind as a result. This is sometimes referred to as bat wings. Other factors that may contribute to an abundance of soft tissue in the upper arms include aging and genetics. Before having an arm lift performed, you will first meet with your physician to determine whether you are a good candidate for an arm lift.

You should expect your arm lift procedure to take between one and three hours. Your doctor may use general or local anesthesia, based on the amount of tissue and skin to be removed to complete your procedure. If a large amount of tissue needs to be removed to achieve your goals, your surgeon may recommend liposuction to be performed in addition to your arm lift.
The amount and location of the skin to be removed will also determine the length of your incisions. Incisions are typically placed on the inside or the back of the arm. In addition to removing excess skin, your doctor will also reshape and tighten underlying supportive tissue. In some cases, internal stitches may be required to achieve desired results. Most patients are able to see the full results of an arm lift immediately following their procedure. You should expect some swelling and bruising following an arm lift.
After your procedure, your arms may be dressed with bandages. You may also be advised to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling. Small tubes may also be inserted on a temporary basis to drain excess fluid. If you experience any discomfort, your doctor may prescribe oral painkillers. You will need to avoid heavy lifting for a while after your procedure.
