Excessive skin and fat tissue in the upper arm area can also provoke different health problems and people with this problem complain especially about irritative dermatitis (inflammation of the skin) in the upper arm and arm pit area.
Aesthetic surgery for brachioplasty - picture before and after surgery
Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure with which we remove the excessive skin from the upper arm area that represents a significant aesthetic, and often a health problem as well, for the person in question. It is a method that helps us tighten the skin on the upper arms.
We measure and mark the orientation points with a precise drawing before the procedure, so we can remove the optimal amount of excessive skin.
We position the scar left from the operation in the internal area of the upper arms, so that it’s as less visible as possible and well hidden after the recovery period, and the wound is precisely stitched with the top quality and finest suchers, according to the principals of aesthetic surgery.
After 6 months to a year most of the scarring almost entirely fades away.
From the technical aspect, when in the hands of an experienced and skilled aesthetic surgeon, this procedure does not represent a big problem and can be done rather quickly and with a high rate of success.
We insist on a quality choice and good preparation of patients for this kind of procedure to reduce the risk of this operation and bring the postoperative recovery to a minimum as well as to assure that the safety of the patent is on the highest level.
With these conditions brachioplasty is a very efficient procedure which results in very high patient satisfaction.
Although we remove a certain amount of fat tissue together with the excessive skin with this procedure, patients suitable for this procedure would have to have normal or moderate body weight, whether they are people who went through significant weight loss or people who genetically have excessive skin on the upper arm area.
It is also very important that the postoperative lab results and medical examinations are in order, especially the examinations with an internal specialist, ECG, blood pressure, blood test and blood coagulation.
Dr Toncic has successfully practiced this surgical procedure with his team for over 15 years and can speak from his experience over many years that this is a highly efficient body shaping method. We have a very high percentage of satisfied patients after this procedure in our Clinic thanks to everything listed above
The final result of the brachioplasty depends on the course of the operation, the experience of the surgeon and his team, precise and enhanced techniques, but to a significant extent, it also depends on conscientious and detailed postoperative monitoring and control.
To be sure of the success of the operation and wellbeing of the patient, Dr Toncic and his team insist on regular check ups and everyday contact with the patient. For our patients’ safety, successful recovery and postoperative monitoring, we recommend optimal length of stay in Zagreb. This way, we leave nothing to chance. We monitor our patient’s recovery completely, which is crucial for our patient’s health and the result of the operation.
Postoperative recovery after brachioplasty is individual, usually lasting around 14 days after the operation. The stitches are removed 14 days after the surgery, and our patients can resume their personal and professional activities, having in mind, though, to avoid harder physical activities for 30 days after the operation.
Immediately after brachioplasty, the patient puts on special compressive, elastic garments on the arms. The elastic garment is a big part of the postoperative recovery, because it makes the skin stick to the tissue as close as possible, and the effect of the operation is thus enhanced. The elastic garments are to be worn for 6 to 8 weeks after the surgery.
We provide the patients with specific garment, according to the type and size, prior to the surgery.
