If you have always wanted tight, toned upper arms, having an arm lift in Phuket could be just the solution you need to get the confidence to wear sleeveless shirts. Sagging, drooping arms are a common problem for many people. Unfortunately, exercise alone is often not enough to create the toned arms you would like. Having an arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty could be the right solution.
An arm lift may be performed with or without liposuction and can transform sagging underarms into beautiful, sculpted upper arms.
Arm lift surgery is appropriate for both men and women. Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight often suffer from large amounts of skin left hanging from their underarms. This soft tissue is sometimes referred to as "bat wings." Other factors that can affect the presence of sagging underarms include genetics and aging. Prior to having your procedure performed, you will have a consultation with your surgeon to determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure.
Traveling to Phuket for an arm lift can offer a number of advantages. Interest in medical tourism has increased significantly in recent years as patients are opting to travel abroad to save on the cost of their procedures while enjoying a relaxing getaway. Located in southern Thailand, Phuket is the largest island in Thailand and offers a wealth of activities. Beyond snorkeling, swimming, and diving, Phuket is also home to beautiful waterfalls, interesting museums, and is a renowned spa destination. By booking an arm lift in Phuket, you can enjoy the chance to save on your procedure and vacation in one of the most interesting and exotic locales in the world.

An arm lift procedure generally takes between one and three hours to complete. The procedure may be performed using local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the surgery. Individuals with a large amount of flab may benefit from having an arm lift performed in conjunction with liposuction.
The length of the incisions made in an arm lift will vary based on the location and the amount of excess skin to be removed. Your surgeon will place the incisions on the back or the inside of the arm. Along with removing excess skin, underlying supportive tissue will also be reshaped and tightened. Internal sutures may also be used to achieve desired results. Patients are usually able to see the results of their procedure immediately, although it is important to expect some bruising and swelling following the procedure.
Your arms may be dressed in bandages following your procedure. It may also be necessary to wear a compression garment following your surgery to minimize swelling. In some cases, small, thin tubes may be inserted temporarily to drain excess fluid. Oral painkillers may be prescribed to alleviate any discomfort you may experience. Patients may be advised to avoid heavy lifting for a period of time following their procedure. The nature of your work will dictate when you will be able to return to work.
