The Results

It may or may not be combined with liposuction to remove excess fat in addition to the skin. The operation involves an incision on the inside of the arm and removal of excess skin.
This incision heals leaving a scar that runs more or less from the elbow to the axillary area.

This scar, although thin, remains visible.
It is performed under general anaesthesia.

Duration of the operation: 1-2 hours.

Post-surgery

Healing period: 15 days for removal of stitches and return to work. 6 weeks to return to sport.

During the 6 weeks it will be necessary to wear an elastic sheath around the arms.

Advantages: volume reduction and remodelling of the arm, which will return to a toned appearance.
Risks: the scar, even if hidden on the inner side of the arm, may be hypertrophic and noticeable or aesthetically unattractive.
