Loosening and sagging occurs as a result of the thinning in the skin fatty layers in the arms and thighs and the reduction in the elastic fibres. This sagging is corrected with arm and thigh lift surgery.

Arm and Thigh Lift Surgery: Loosening and sagging occurs as a result of the thinning in the skin fatty layers in the arms and thighs and the reduction in the elastic fibres. This sagging is corrected with arm and thigh lift surgery. If there is not a great deal of sagging in the skin of the arms and thighs, and only excess fat, it will be sufficient to remove the fat with liposuction. Arm and thigh lift surgery can be performed under local or general anaesthesia. Where there is not a great deal of sagging in the skin, the marks left by surgery will only be in the armpits or the insides of the legs.

Post-Surgery: Arm or thigh corsets will need to be worn after surgery. Patients who have been subjected to local anaesthesia do not need to remain in hospital. However, where general anaesthesia has been used, they will need to remain in hospital for 1 night.

Hospitalisation period: 1 day
Procedure time: 2 hours
Return to Normal Life: Stitches are removed in 12-14 days. Normal life can be resumed in 4-5 days.
