BENEFITS OF ARM LIFT SURGERY ABROAD
Choosing to undergo Arm Lift surgery with our plastic surgeons has several advantages:
- It can save you up to 70% compared to U.S. prices
- Highest quality with U.S. Trained plastic surgeons in Mexico
- Best results with only FDA approved materials and implants
- Our surgeons offer the latest plastic surgery procedures and technology
Arm Lift surgery can cost as much as $10,000 USD in the U.S. and, because it is generally not covered by most Health Insurance plans, is typically paid out-of-pocket or financed with high interest rate loans. With Health & Wellness Bazaar, traveling to Mexico for Arm Lift surgery is safe, easy, and affordable with surgery packages starting at $4,700 USD with minimum wait times.
Our medical providers are able to offer such low pricing compared to the U.S. because of the low cost of land, labor, and materials in the destinations where they practice. The safety, quality, and efficacy of the Arm Lift surgery is never compromised despite the low pricing and the patient experience is well beyond U.S. standards. Currently we have plastic surgeons in Tijuana, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, and Cancun, Mexico. Please contact us for more information.

ARM LIFT SURGERY PROCEDURE
On the day of your surgery, you will be taken to a private surgical suite where a trained anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Once you are sedated, your surgeon will begin by making incisions on the undersides of your arms. The length and pattern of the incisions depends on how much skin will be removed.
After, the plastic surgeon will tighten your underlying tissues and secure them with stitches. He may also use a suction technique to remove fat (Liposuction).
Your skin will then be draped over the new contours and excess skin will be removed. Stitches or surgical tape will be used to close the incisions.
After an arm lift, your incisions will be covered in bandages. Your arms will be loosely wrapped in elastic bandages to minimize swelling. Small tubes might be placed in your arms to drain any excess blood or fluid.
RECOVERING FROM ARM LIFT SURGERY
After the procedure, patients should plan on resting and avoiding activity for about a week. You may experience temporary swelling, bruising, and tenderness, but any discomfort should be manageable with the medications prescribed by your surgeon. You should avoid lifting your arms above shoulder level for 3-4 weeks. You should also avoid exercising your arms of any activity that may stretch the incisions.
Flabby skin: genetics and other factors that influence
If you have loose skin in your upper arm, an arm lift in Mexico will help you. Arm lifts are often done after weight loss, but sometimes even people with average weight face this need for several reasons.
Some of us have poor genetic production of proteins that keep the skin healthy and firm. For example, Elastin is a protein that allows the skin to return to its original shape after being stretched. If the amount of elastin in your body is low, it can result in loose skin. And the same happens with collagen, which is the main structural protein of the skin. Sadly, there is no technology to correct these bad genes to this day.
However, even good genes are affected by age. As the body ages, it gradually loses elastin and collagen. Sun exposure damages the genes that contain the skin’s maintenance program, which makes the skin more rigid and less elastic. Excessive sun exposure can lead to leathery skin, sun damage, and skin cancer.
And other factors damage our genes too. For example, smoking causes thinning, stiffness, and wrinkles in all the skin, not just on the arms. Also, gaining and losing weight results in stretching the skin, relaxing elastin springs, and overstretching collagen fibers. All these factors contribute to the flabby skin in the arms.
Arm lift in Mexico: is it worth it?
Before mentioning why it would be worth undergoing an arm lift in Mexico, it is essential to remember how this procedure works. An arm lift, or Brachioplasty, is a surgical technique that removes excess skin and fat that usually appears between the armpit and the elbow.
During the process, a small amount of liposuction will likely be performed to remove fat. The remaining skin is tucked in and closed with stitches or surgical tape. The skin is shaped for a more toned and youthful appearance. During the process, the surgeon makes incisions in the arm; the size and shape of these incisions will depend on each patient, the severity of the case, and the amount of skin to be removed. The incision length is proportional to the amount of loose skin; the more loose skin, the longer the incision will be.
But why should you consider this procedure? The reasons for undergoing this procedure can vary, although in most cases, it is for aesthetic reasons. With aging, the skin on the arms becomes loose and begins to sag. Something similar can happen in patients who have lost a lot of weight and whose skin has stretched during the process. In many cases, exercise can help improve the appearance of the arms by strengthening the muscles and tightening the skin. But the problem will likely persist since the excess skin will never return to its original position by itself. In all of these cases, and probably yours, the arm lift in Mexico is the solution. So yes, it is worth it.
Arm lift in Mexico: does it have risks?
As in all types of surgery, some risks must be evaluated before deciding to undergo this surgical procedure:
- One of the main concerns is the scars that result from surgery. And, yes, there will be some small scars from the incisions. However, these are placed in areas where they are not visible. Also, redness or irritation from these scars is rare. Corticosteroid injections can be used to improve their appearance.
- Another point that generates concern is the possible asymmetry in the shape of the arms. Although there is no perfect symmetry, the experience of our professionals guarantees the best results in this regard.
- Other side effects. It is also possible to experience some numbness in the area or changes in sensitivity. These changes are usually temporary and do not represent a danger.
It is worth mentioning that there are the typical risks of any surgical procedure, such as bleeding, infection, or an unwanted side effect of anesthesia. These risks may increase if there is a pre-existing disease or if the patient is a smoker or overweight.
All these issues will be evaluated before surgery by your surgeon. Therefore, it is always important to follow the recommendations of professionals in whatever treatment or procedure you want.
Arm lift in Mexico: What results to expect?
When excess skin and fat are removed, the appearance of the arms will be more youthful and toned. Usually, these results are long-lasting and permanent. However, it is essential to consider that the skin will continue its natural aging process and may stretch again after years or due to weight gain. For this reason, taking care of your skin, avoiding too much sun exposure, maintaining a stable weight, and having a healthy lifestyle is crucial to long-lasting results.
There is no question that an arm lift is well worth the effort for patients who want to improve their appearance, as the risks are minimal. But please always follow your doctor’s recommendations since these will avoid additional complications. At Health and Wellness Bazaar, you will find the best plastic surgeons in Mexico to help you in this important step in your life.
