Why should I get an arm lift in Thailand?

Thailand has been at the forefront of medical tourism for decades now. The facilities are among the best in the world, and it has more than its fair share of those that have been accredited for the highest standards in medical care and patient safety by the Joint Commission International.

Thais are also renowned for their customer service, providing patients with everything they would ever need to make their stay as comfortable as possible.

We do always advise that before you book any medical procedure abroad that you find out a little background information for yourself. You want to be sure your doctor is qualified and experienced in the procedure you want, and it is always worth doing a quick search online for any testimonials from previous patients.

By booking through Medical Departures you are always assured of quality-checked doctors whose professional memberships and qualifications have already been verified by us. Our site also publishes clinic photos and real patient reviews, as well as other useful information to help equip you with the knowledge you need to decide whether a particular doctor is right for you.

We also have destination information, so you can search for doctors in the heart of Bangkok City, or peaceful Chiang Mai, or one of the amazing beach destinations, such as Phuket. The choice really is yours to make.

How long does the arm lift procedure take and what is involved?

Most people usually have an arm lift combined with liposuction, and some people just have the liposuction on its own. Your skin elasticity must be good enough to shrink back once the fat is removed with just liposuction, otherwise the results will be disappointing.

The arm lift surgery will take around 1 – 2 hours to complete, depending on the exact procedure you have. Your surgeon will discuss the various options with you and recommend what is best.

A standard arm lift typically has an incision running from your underarm to your elbow – excess tissue and skin is removed and the incision stitched; a limited incision arm lift has a small cut made under the armpit and the excess tissue pulled up, removed and the remaining tissue stitched and an extended arm lift extends the standard incision into the chest wall to remove excess tissue under the armpit.
What is the recovery time for an arm lift in Thailand?

There is minimal recovery time for an arm lift procedure, in comparison to some other surgical treatments. Obviously, your arms will be tender and stiff for several days but many people go back to work 3 – 5 days after the procedure. Gently moving and stretching your arms will speed recovery, and help reduce swelling – but don’t overdo it. You should avoid anything strenuous, such as heavy lifting or sports like tennis, for around 6 weeks. Bruising should start to subside after a week or two and by 4 weeks you should have full movement back. The scars will fade gradually to white and will barely be noticeable after 12 months.
