This experience far exceeded my expectations. I had my initial consult on February 23, more out of curiosity than anything, thinking if all went well I could have my surgery the following year when I returned to Mexico. From the moment I walked into the San Javier Hospital I was impressed by the clean, state of the art building design and staff. I saw Dr Alejandro in his clinic on the third floor and he answered all my questions and left it with me to contact his office if I wished to proceed with the surgery. To my surprise the office advised they could do the surgery as early as March 9, when I arrived I was greeted by a team of highly qualified staff, all of whom were friendly and spoke English and made me feel completely comfortable and at ease. I was monitored closely postoperatively and released within five hours of entering the hospital. The recovery has gone well and I saw Dr Alejandro at one week and again at two weeks prior to my return home to Canada. He will continue to follow me via video conference and photos after my return for a period of six months or longer as necessary. I would not hesitate to recommend Elaen Clinic and Dr Alejandro and would not hesitate to return for other procedures.

What is Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?

The objective of the arm lift (also known as Brachioplasty) procedure is to improve the contour in the upper arm by lifting and removing excess fat and skin that has lost its elasticity due to age or fluctuation in weight.

 

A Good Candidate for Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Good Candidates for arm lift surgery are healthy non-smoking individuals that are over the age of 18.

 

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon who will discourse with you the best method(s) to achieve your desired end results. Incisions are made on the inner part of each arm. The lengths of the incisions depend on the amount of skin that needs to be removed. Occasionally, incisions are made from the inside of the upper arm, all the way down to the inner elbow.

 

Excess skin is either cut out surgically, or if stubborn fat deposits are present, the surgeon may choose to remove them via liposuction. Incisions are closed with dissolvable or removable stitches, in which case the patient may or may not be required to return to the hospital for a follow-up visit to have the stitches removed.

 

This procedure is outpatient, which means that the patient can return home the same day of the surgery, unless advised otherwise by the doctor.

 

Average Duration of Arm lift Surgery: 2 hours
