What is an Arm Lift?
With arm lift surgery, the ultimate goal is to create a more visually appealing aesthetic for the upper arm by reducing excess fat and skin and smoothing out the underlying supportive tissue. Oftentimes, no matter how much exercise you commit to or how good your diet is, stubborn fat just won’t go away, and by targeting this stubborn fat, a much more toned and defined upper arm can be realised. In cases where there’s quite a bit of excess fat, liposuction may be additionally employed to assist with the procedure.
When you choose to undergo arm lift surgery, any cellulite, excess fat deposits, excess skin resulting from major weight loss, or drooping skin resulting from genetics or ageing can be removed safely and effectively.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for an Arm Lift?
There are many ways in which someone could be the ideal candidate for an arm lift, and equally many reasons why someone may not be. If you’ve been thinking about undergoing arm lift surgery and are wondering whether you’re the ideal candidate, you’ll want to be sure that you meet the following criteria:

What are the pros and cons of arm lift surgery?
There are a number of great benefits that come with having arm lift surgery, but as with any form of surgery there are some negative points you should be aware of too. The pros and cons of arm lift surgery break down as follows:
The most obvious reason for undergoing an arm lift is to improve on your arms’ appearance, presumably because you’re unhappy with the way that they currently look. Flabby or drooping skin on the arms can lead to self-consciousness and discomfort, and even in extreme cases depression. An arm lift is a safe and effective way to slim down and tighten up your arms, and help you to feel more comfortable when wearing certain clothing.
Improved self-esteem and confidence
The ultimate goal of any form of cosmetic surgery is to improve appearance, and in turn self-esteem and confidence. When we start to lose our self-esteem and confidence we start to lose the drive to engage in certain activities, meeting people, and many other parts of life that many may take for granted. If your arms are causing you to feel a lack of self-esteem or confidence then an arm lift could restore it, and get you happy with yourself again and back out in the world doing the things you love.
It can compliment weight loss
It’s not at all uncommon that when we lose a lot of weight it can leave behind excess saggy skin. While there are a number of toning exercises that can help to tighten up any loose skin you may have, it won’t always do the trick. Therefore, an arm lift can be an effective method for complimenting any weight loss you’ve recently experienced, and help to further tighten and tone up your body’s overall appearance.
Greater options for clothing
If you’re feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your arms then you’ve no doubt been avoiding sleeveless or maybe even short sleeved tops. Even long-sleeved clothing is an issue for some, as it can accentuate flabby arms. With an arm lift, any self-consciousness can be overcome, therefore opening up your wardrobe for greater selections of clothing.
One of the unfortunate by-products of cosmetic surgery is the unavoidable visible and permanent scarring. Typically the incisions needed for brachioplasty are made either in the armpit or along the back of the arm, but the good news however is that every effort will be made by your surgeon to make the scars as discreet as possible. There will also be a number of ways to help minimise their appearance too as they heal, which your surgeon will recommend.
Risks and complications
There are a number of risks and complications associated with brachioplasty that it’s important to be aware of before going into your procedure, including:
- Bruising and swelling
- Seroma (a small pocket of fluid that forms underneath the incision site)
- Changes to sensation (when nerve damage occurs it can lead to increases or decreases in sensation)
- Excessive bleeding
- Necrosis (when an area of tissue, fat or skin loses its blood supply and dies)
- Blood clotting
- Blood loss
Why You Should Have Your Arm Lift Surgery in Turkey
In recent years, Turkey has become something of an international hotspot for cosmetic surgery, and there are a number of great reasons why thousands of people are making the trip year after year in their droves for cosmetic procedures such as arm lifts. Included among the many reasons are:
- Cosmetic surgery in Turkey is much more affordable when compared to other countries
- Turkey has strict medical guidelines that all clinics must adhere to
- The country has a vast number of clinics that are internationally accredited
- There are many highly skilled and experienced specialist surgeons performing thousands of procedures across the country each day
- Aftercare treatment continues once you’ve left Turkey and returned home
- Many clinics are offering patients some of the best international care and hospitality in the world
- The whole industry is constantly striving to better itself
- Untold numbers of successful cosmetic surgeries are being performed year after year
It’s much more affordable when compared to other countries
Perhaps the number one reason above all else why so many patients love to travel to Turkey each year for their cosmetic surgery is for the huge savings they stand to make. When contrasted with undergoing an arm lift in the UK where you could be spending anywhere in the region of around £2,000 to £5,000—plus consultancy and aftercare expenses—for your arm lift, if you instead went to Turkey for your procedure you could conversely be paying around £2,000 for an all-inclusive package. All-inclusive packages are readily available and popular, and they typically include air travel, accommodation, transfers and all previously additional consultation and post-operative care costs, all while still maintaining the same high level of expertise, quality and care you’d expect.
There are a number of reasons why there is such a huge difference in price, and it has nothing to do with a lack of quality or low standards. In the UK, as with many other countries, there is a far greater need for higher profits in order to cover costs, such as a higher cost of labour and medications, for example. In addition, the Turkish government provides subsidies to the cosmetic industry in order to further promote the booming cosmetic tourism that the country has been seeing, and furthermore the exchange rate between the Turkish Lira and British Pound leans heavily in our favour, which helps to further bring prices down.
There are strict medical guidelines clinics must adhere to
Another reason why so many patients are choosing to travel to Turkey each year for their arm lifts and other procedures is the strict medical guidelines that clinics have set out for them by the medical institutions of Turkey. In order to keep a tight ship, spontaneous inspections are carried out frequently by the Ministry of Health, which has ensured that only the best levels of quality care are being given to patients, that all practicing doctors and surgeons are fully credible and licenced to be practicing, and that generally all sterilisation and decontamination guidelines are being adhered to when it comes to matters such as medical equipment and the clinical environment. Some of the best standards in the whole world for cosmetic surgery can be found in Turkey, so you know you’ll be in safe hands when you visit for your arm lift.
There are a vast number of clinics that are internationally accredited
When it comes to performing arm lift surgery—or any form of cosmetic surgery—in Turkey, it’s necessary to acquire accreditation from both the government and the Ministry of Health. The majority of clinics and hospitals however opt to seek additional accreditation from international medical associations too, in order to help you feel satisfied, comfortable and safe knowing that you’ll be trusting your care to a reputable provider.
It can often be a fairly intimidating experience undergoing an arm lift at home, let alone going all the way to Turkey for it, but with so many clinics and hospitals that have been internationally accredited, it’s one more reason why thousands of people year after year are comfortable knowing that travelling to Turkey for their arm lifts and other cosmetic procedures is a safe choice.
There are many highly skilled and experienced specialist surgeons
With so many people travelling to Turkey each year for arm lifts and all sorts of other cosmetic surgeries, you can be sure that the ever increasing demand has put thousands more procedures at the feet of the average Turkish surgeon than the average British surgeon, or the average surgeon from anywhere else for that matter. On top of this, the rapid growth of the industry has brought with it the most intense levels of training, so you can therefore rest confident in the knowledge that your Turkish surgeon will be as highly qualified and experienced to perform your arm lift surgery as they come, and likely even more so than here in the UK or anywhere else, where they will not only have performed fewer surgeries, but will be charging vastly more than their Turkish equivalents too.
Aftercare treatment continues once you’re home
You may be wondering what happens when you return home from Turkey after having your arm lift surgery, since you won’t exactly be able to visit your surgeon again for follow-up appointments should you need to. Well, just because you’ve gone home it doesn’t mean your treatment is over. With all of the marvels of the modern age at our fingertips, the vast majority of clinics will be available to you once you get home via a variety of different methods, whether its over the phone, via email, instant messaging or through video calls.
Some of the best international patient care in the world
Perhaps one of the best by-products of going to Turkey for your arm lift is that you essentially get a little holiday out of your procedure too. Most clinics are keen to play this up by providing as many luxury services as they can, and in order to ensure that your trip is as comfortable and enjoyable an experience as it can possibly be, especially considering the relatively invasive surgery you’ll be undergoing, you can expect perks such as airport collections and drop offs by VIP transfer, being put up in luxury 5* accommodation, being driven to and from the clinic or hospital for any consultations and your procedure (again by your VIP driver), or being provided with your own designated host. There are numerous ways to make you as comfortable and relaxed as possible during your time in Turkey, and make sure your experience is as enjoyable as it can be all around, and you can receive all of this for less than the cost of undergoing the procedure at home. You’ll also find most clinic and hospital staff speak fantastic English, and whenever the language barrier is an issue, your designated host is on hand to help out wherever he or she is needed. Luxury service packages such as these are built around each patient with the sole purpose of making sure each and every need is fully catered to during the entire duration of their stay in Turkey.
A constant striving for the best
Since more and more people are travelling to Turkey in their thousands year after year for arm lifts and other such forms of cosmetic procedures, more and more clinics have been opening up to cope with the ever increasing demand. This has lead to some fierce competition in the country, with each and every clinic striving to be the best of the best. This constant striving for improvement and to progress beyond the capabilities of the other clinics has lead to some of the best in the world, and not just when it comes to doing a good job and looking after patients. The industry as a whole is dedicated to constant research, learning all there is to be learned about the latest techniques and methods, and keeping up to date with the latest facilities and state of the art technologies available at their disposal.
Untold numbers of successful surgeries year after year
With each year that goes by, thousands upon thousands of cosmetic surgery patients are making the trip to turkey for their cosmetic surgery needs, whether it’s for an arm lift or anything else, and the results can speak for themselves. As previously mentioned, the average cosmetic surgeon in Turkey has performed thousands of successful procedures over the course of their careers, so you can be safe in the knowledge that when you undergo your arm lift surgery in Turkey, you’ll be in some of the best, most skilled, and above all else experienced hands that perhaps the whole world has to offer.
Arm Lift FAQs
No matter what form of surgery you choose to undergo there’ll always be some degree of risk involved. On the whole though, you can rest assured knowing that your arm lift is a safe procedure, and the chances of any complications occurring are fairly low. Furthermore, there are a number of steps you can take to ensure that your procedure is as safe as possible. By asking your surgeon for their qualifications, along with before and after photos of previous arm lifts, you can ensure that you’re in a safe and qualified pair of hands.
Your surgeon will suggest a number of things you can do both pre- and post-surgery to help achieve the best results of your arm lift. Whatever he or she suggests, make sure you follow it closely, and always remember to be open and honest about anything they ask you. Some things they may advise you on include:
— Smoking: If you smoke, then it’s vital that you stop no fewer than 6 weeks prior to your arm lift. Smoking can lead to a number of complications, including necrosis, so it’s important that any smoking is stopped right away.
— Medications: If you’re taking any prescription, over the counter, or herbal medications then your surgeon may ask you to stop prior to your surgery. In addition, any drugs with anticoagulation properties should especially be avoided, due to the levels of bleeding that they could cause.
— Illness: If you’ve become ill in the run up to your surgery, whether a cold, a fever or infection, be sure to let the medical team or your surgeon know ASAP so your surgery can be postponed to a later date.
