The Risks of Arm Lift Surgery

Arm lift surgery is a form of major surgery and for that reason there are risks involved with it. It is important to bear in mind that the risks can be decreased if the patient is willing to cooperate fully with the surgeon's instructions. Risks can further be minimized if the arm lift patient faithfully goes to the doctor for the scheduled follow up checks ups. Not all patients experience complications and they should all be discussed thoroughly with the surgeon before the surgery is scheduled.

Infection

Although it is unlikely, infections of the upper arm region do sometimes occur. If an infection does take place, the surgeon will prescribe antibiotics to get rid of the infection or in some cases, more surgery will need to be undertaken.

Bleeding

Bleeding does not commonly take place during or after arm lift surgery. If you experience bleeding after surgery it might be necessary to go to the emergency room in order to have excess blood drained or in some cases, to have a blood transfusion. For ten days before surgery takes place avoid taking aspirin or any type of anti-inflammatory medications because these medications can increase the chance that bleeding will take place after surgery.

Other Risks

Sometimes the sensations in the upper arm region are diminished right after surgery and they don't always go back to the way they were before the surgery was done. Sometimes there are skin contour irregularities and depressions in the skin that take place after arm lift surgery. This may result in visible wrinkling of the skin. Scarring does occur as a result of arm lift surgery but it tends to fade with time, but does not always go away completely. However an excessive amount of scarring is very rare. There are cases where abnormal scars appear that are different colors and may be unsightly looking. Additional surgeries may be needed to get rid of abnormal scarring.

Some patients experience a reaction to the anesthesia that is used, but this is a worry with all major surgeries. Both general anesthesia as well as local anesthesia involve a certain amount of risk. Surgical anesthesia and sedation runs the risk of injury, complications and even the possibility of death. Symmetrical body appearance is not always obtained with arm lift surgery. There are a number of factors that play a role in normal asymmetry of the body and they include muscle tone, skin tone, fatty deposits, and bony prominence.

Healing is not always rapid with arm lift surgery. Sometimes healing is delayed or there is wound disruption. The upper arm region does not always heal as it should and sometimes it takes a long length of time to heal. Unfortunately sometimes there are spots of skin that die off completely and cannot return to health again. When delayed healing occurs, additional surgery might need to take place to get rid of the tissue that has not healed or else there may need to be repeated dressing changes to encourage speedier healing.
