Arm Lift in Philippines

The Ultimate Guide to Arm Lift in Philippines

If you have upper arms that have sagging skin or are just heavy, then an arm lift in the Philippines may be the way to get shapelier upper arms. It is very difficult to dislodge fat and tone your upper arms particularly if loss of skin elasticity, ageing and weight loss are involved Even if you do lose weight, the skin can sag and some women even develop drooping skin that makes their upper arms look like bat wings.

Medically called a brachioplasty, this surgery can be done in different ways, depending on the condition of your upper arms and the desired results. You can have a mini arm lift or a more extensive one, with or without liposuction. When you get an arm lift you will be able to wear sleeveless and strappy clothes without feeling conscious of your arms.

Why consider an arm lift in the Philippines?

Often plastic surgery may at the top of your wish list, but may not be possible because of simple economics. This surgery is expensive when you have to pay for it and it is not covered by insurance. In your mind, too, you may consider it a vanity procedure that is unaffordable. If you live in Australia or other countries nearby in South and East Asia or even America, Europe and the Middle East, then the Philippines offers this procedure at reasonable rates, making it an affordable option.

The Philippines is a big medical tourist destination. It has many top quality hospitals and clinics in cities and resorts and you can select one according to where you want to go for a holiday, since you can easily combine a holiday with some plastic surgery. Among the places that are medical tourism hotspots in the Philippines are Manila, Cebu City, Makati, Quezon City, Pasig City, Mantinlupa, Angeles City and many other places.

How much time does arm lift take and what is the estimated recovery period?

At the initial consultation the doctor will check your physical condition and see how much surgery is actually needed. For instance if you are young, and have good skin elasticity, you may get by with just liposuction. If there is very little drooping skin, then liposuction can be combined with tightening of the skin. For more extensive work the liposuction may be combined with tissue and skin removal. It also depends on whether only the top half of the upper arms needs work or the surgery should extend to the elbows. Sometimes it may also cover some of the underarms and a little above the chest. For extensive procedure, it will take up to three hours and is usually done under general anesthesia.

You will need help for the first 48 to 72 hours and you may need to stay in hospital overnight. As the surgery involves the arms, you will have limited movement in your arms following the surgery and you can estimate up to two weeks off work. You will have bandages and possible drains that you will need to take care of. You may have compression garments after liposuction. You will have to sleep with your arms in an elevated position for around two weeks. You should be able to resume most activities after six weeks.
