What is an Arm and Leg Stretching Operation?

Sagging and loosening of the arms is the most common problem in women in middle age and older. The unhappiness experienced by women who have experienced this problem has contributed to the development of arm lift surgery in medical science. Arm stretching is a surgical method that is applied to eliminate arm sagging, especially in women over the age of 40. There is a wide range of causes of sagging in patients undergoing arm lift surgery. These can be sorted as follows: Hereditary characteristics, excessive weight gain-loss, aging. In an arm lift surgery, the goal is to thin the arm and make it tighter. 

As a result of the progression of people’s age and very frequent weight loss, deformations occur in various parts of the body. Sagging is very common, especially in the inner legs. The inner legs can rub together when wearing clothes such as skirts and dresses. As a result of this friction, diaper rash can occur in the legs. These frictions lead to bad looks on the legs over time. These problems that occur in the legs can be solved by leg stretching operations. Many people who complain about these problems resort to leg stretching operations.

How Is an Arm Lift Operation Performed? What Is Arm Stretching Technique?

Arm lift surgery is performed with local or general anesthesia according to the decision of Welles Clinic specialists. After the patient is given anesthesia, an L-shaped incision is made. After the incision is made, excess tissue in the arm is removed. Lipo-shaping is applied to patients with thick arms to make the arm more stretched and thinner. After removing excess tissues, incisions are closed without a trace thanks to Welles Clinic’s special stitches. At the end of the operation, drains can be placed in the arm area to prevent bleeding and fluid collection. After the healing process, the scar formed on the arm due to incisions get its skin color at the end of the 6th month.

If excess fat is present in the inner legs, the liposuction method should also be applied along with leg stretching operation. But if there is no excess fat in the leg, it is necessary to correct the sagging and loosening skin without liposuction. In leg stretching surgery, excess skin from the groin line to the inner leg is removed and the inner leg skin is stretched upwards and stitched. In this way, the leg stretching process is completed.
