Arm Surgery or Brachioplasty

Arm surgery or brachioplasty is necessary when the skin of the inner arms loosens and looks flabby, usually due to age or after weight fluctuations, resulting in preventing us from wearing what we want. Especially when we raise our arms, the looseness and excess fat on the arms look quite unsightly.

With arm surgery or brachioplasty, the excess skin is removed and a more harmonious appearance is given to the arms. In case the excess fat of the inner arms presents the image of plump arms, the problem may be corrected with the liposculpture method.

The brachioplasty operation.

During brachioplasty, excess skin is removed from the inner arms, leaving a thin scar which is usually not visible, due to the incision. As much skin and fat as possible is removed to achieve an arm lift and give the desired shape. The incision starts above the inside of the elbow and ends near the inside of the armpit, and there is a possibility that it will become red after the operation.

After brachioplasty.

Recovery for arm surgery or brachioplasty happens within a few days after the operation and the sutures are absorbable.

A week off work is recommended. Gradually, you return to all your previous activities two weeks after the operation. You will need to wear an elastic bandage for a two week period. After arm surgery or brachioplasty, there is a possibility of slight swelling of the extremities, as well as mild bruising, which will gradually subside by the end of the first week.

Indications: looseness, localized fat or a combination of both.

Contraindications: serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, healing disorders.


In case the doctor wants to add a tightening element to the area of the arms and there is no intense looseness, the new Bodytite method may be used, as RF liposuction with the help of radiofrequency is called.

Until now, the non-invasive application of radiofrequency helps us improve the contouring of body lines, either by shrinking fat cells or reducing cellulite.

There is now a new technique, in which the doctor first makes a small hole in the skin, as with conventional liposuction, and before proceeding to liposuction, uses a special, thin canula of the RF machine.

Initially, he places this thin canula under the skin and with the help of radiofrequency -which produces heat- the fat under the skin melts as we continue with the liposuction, while finally removing the melted fat.

The advantage of this new method is that no extraordinary recovery time is required for the patient.

It can be administered in select cases, for which fat removal is difficult and we need to cause some degree of tightening of the skin with this heat, so the doctor may be more aggressive in fat removal and achieving tightening.

Even with the classic method of liposuction, a type of skin tightening is created because, by nature, the skin has the ability, after fat removal, to shrink and “contract”. Thanks to radiofrequency, a more intense tightening is achieved.

The duration of liposuction with the help of RF radiofrequency is similar to that of conventional liposuction and recovery time is less than 3-7 days.

Indications: localized fat, moderate or slight looseness.
Contraindications: serious diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, as well as the presence of a pacemaker.


Αν η χαλάρωση στα μπράτσα δεν είναι πάρα πολύ έντονη τότε μπορεί να εφαρμοστεί η μη επεμβατική θεραπεία με το μηχάνημα Accent που με τη βοήθεια των ραδιοσυχνοτήτων προσφέρει σύσφιξη.

Η θερμότητα που διαχέεται στους ιστούς από τις ραδιοσυχνότητες, έχει σαν αποτέλεσμα τα λιποκύτταρα να συρρικνωθούν, ενώ παράλληλα ενεργοποιούνται οι ινοβλάστες για την παραγωγή κολλαγόνου.

Έτσι βελτιώνεται η ποιότητα του δέρματος και επιτυγχάνεται η βελτίωση της κυκλοφορίας.

Σε περιοχές που εμφανίζεται τοπικό πάχος – μόνο του – ή σε συνδυασμό με κυτταρίτιδα μπορεί να εφαρμοστεί η θεραπεία Accent στο σώμα.

Το Accent διαθέτει για τις θεραπείες σώματος δύο κεφαλές την μονοπολική (Unilarge) η οποία μεταφέρει τη θερμότητα στους ιστούς.

Καθώς επίσης και η κεφαλή (Uniform) η οποία συνδυάζει την μονοπολική ραδιοσυχνότητα με μασάζ για καλύτερη λεμφική παροχέτευση.

Η θεραπεία με τις ραδιοσυχνότητες (Accent) επαναλαμβάνεται κάθε 10 μέρες περίπου.

Συνήθως χρειάζονται συνολικά 4-6 συνεδρίες, ανάλογα με το μέγεθος του προβλήματος και την περιοχή.

Τα αποτελέσματα είναι άμεσα, αλλά επέρχεται βελτίωση και κατά τους 3-4 πρώτες μήνες μετά την εφαρμογή.
