My experience was exceptional. The doctor was very thorough and explicit giving detailed explanations on the procedure. His communications skills and kind personality immediately put my husband and I at ease and assured us that he was the correct doctor to choose for my elective procedure.

I am very happy with my full facelift procedure that was performed in January 2020 by Dr. Alejandro and his professional team at Elaen Clinic in Puerto Vallarta. The procedure was performed in a 'state of the art' hospital with round the clock care following the procedure. From the initial consultation to my final post-op visit I was treated with respect and kindness. Dr. Alejandro is a consummate professional.

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
