The loss of elastin and collagen, ageing and weight loss cause the skin on the inside of the arm to become loose and flaccid, which is difficult to eliminate with a healthy diet and exercise. Therefore, the brachioplasty operation in Malaga is the only solution to this problem.

This procedure is recommended for people with excess fat or sagging skin on the inner arm. The patient who is going to undergo the treatment must have a healthy and stable weight.

High blood pressure, lung or heart disease are cases in which additional precautions should be taken and will be discussed in consultation with Dr. Maribel Ruiz.

If the patient is a smoker, we recommend quitting smoking as soon as possible before surgery due to all the problems and limitations it causes.

The surgery lasts between 1 and 2 hours. It is performed under general anaesthesia or, in some cases, it can be performed under local anaesthesia. Patients must stay overnight in hospital after the operation.

Dr. Maribel Ruiz makes an incision on the inside or back of the arm (the size varies depending on the volume of fat to be removed and the extent of loose skin) and excess skin is removed (excess fat can also be removed by liposuction).

Dr. Maribel Ruiz Ruiz will ensure that the incision is as small as possible so that the scar is minimal and discreet.

After brachioplasty surgery, the patient will leave the hospital the next day with bandages.

Depending on whether they have drainage or not, after 3 or 4 days they will be checked, the bandage will be changed, etc. After approximately 15 days, the bandage and stitches are removed and a special compression garment for the arms is placed, which must be worn for approximately 3 months.

The patient will be able to carry out normal daily activities one month after the operation.

The results of arm lift surgery are immediate, with a noticeable and immediate improvement in the contour of the patient’s arm. The final results will be visible approximately 3 months after surgery, once the patient is fully recovered.

Healing is a very important part of this surgery. Dr. Maribel Ruiz will give guidelines on aftercare and treatment to reduce the appearance of scars over time.

The main benefit that patients report after brachioplasty is the aesthetic benefit and the comfort they feel after the procedure.

The scar depends on each patient (amount of tissue, skin elasticity…) The scars are located on the inside of the arm, Dr. Maribel Ruiz will make the incision so that when the patient closes the arms, the scars are practically imperceptible.

In a normal posture, the scars will not be visible (unless the arms are raised). Dr. Maribel Ruiz will give you treatment guidelines with moisturising creams and silicone patches that will quickly improve your appearance.

The stitches from the brachioplasty are removed after approximately 15 days, after which time the scars begin to fade and blend into the skin.

The price of brachioplasty in Malaga depends on factors such as the extent of the arm lift to be performed, whether or not there is a need for additional liposuction, the hospital chosen for the intervention, etc…, although we can say that the cost is from €3,500.
