A beautiful and impressive appearance cannot be achieved without arms with a tapering contour. Sadly, aging and weight gain take their toll and result in the accumulation of fat deposits in the posterior compartment of the arm. This adds weight and heaviness to it and gradually the skin in this portion of the arm loses elasticity. Moreover, rapid weight loss can hurt the arms resulting in a 'bat wing' deformity, composed of some excess fat and a great deal of excess skin.
In these cases, the best solution is an arm lift operation, also known as brachioplasty. It significantly improves the laxity and sagging of the arms, removes your arms’ excess skin, makes your arms firm and completely rejuvenates the upper arm, upper thorax and arm pit regions.
Dr. Charalampos Lemonas ensures that you will look stunning on your sun-dresses and tank tops!

Before Arm Lift surgery
Belgravia Medical Centre and Dr. Charalampos Lemonas are taking the best possible care of both your health and your appearance.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Lemonas will describe in detail the arm lift procedure with you. He will listen and evaluate your desires, thus ensuring that they are compatible with your lifestyle and medical history. Additionally, your initial consultation is the best opportunity for you to ask every question you might have.
Initial consultation includes topics such as discussion on your desires and expectations, medical conditions and allergies, use of medication, alcohol and tobacco and previous surgeries.
Afterwards, your personal plastic surgeon will evaluate your general health status, discuss the options available to you and the likely outcomes, examine and measure your face and show you before and after photographs of past patients who have undergone the same surgery as the one you want. This way we ensure that you have a complete understanding of the results you will attain.
After the procedure
The Belgravia Medical Centre team will be at your side before, during and after your arm lift cosmetic surgery. Your preoperative visit will be arranged to take place one week before the operation and during it, you will receive a handout of instructions to follow after the operation. Dr. Lemonas will make sure that you will receive all the care required for a smooth recovery.
After surgery, you will go home the same day. In order to reduce swelling and improve the contour of the arm, you will wear a pair of lightly compressive arm sleeves for two weeks post-op. Your arms will feel 'tight', but you will be able to bend them at the elbow. You should avoid any type of weight lifting exercise for 4 weeks post-op. You are encouraged to walk after surgery, and to do light aerobic exercise one week after it.
It goes without saying that we design a schedule of follow up appointments to closely monitor your progress and make your recovery fast and easy.
