Arm Lift

You will become more youthful with firmer looking arms. By taking away excess and unnecessary skin, the sagging appearance of your arm will disappear.
How will surgery be performed?

Depending on the amount of skin and the degree of excess, the surgical incision can be totally hidden within the armpit or be of variable length located on the inside of the arm in an unremarkable position.

Our medical team will assess your needs, carefully determining which procedure is most suitable.

Liposuction, as well as a combination of liposuction and an arm lift, are among the options.

Arm lift surgery can also be combined with other procedures.

What kind of anaesthesia will be needed?

Local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia in consultation with your anaesthetist.

How long will surgery take?

About one and a half to two hours.

Will I feel pain afterwards?

Pain will be slight, dissipating normally within three days, which can be medicated if persisting.

How long is recovery?

Two nights in hospital are usually required for rest and recovery. Bandages and a light compression garment are required for some days. Some dizziness is to be expected, but most activities can be undertaken within the first week and total recovery will be within three weeks.

Will there be bruising and swelling?

Bruising will be minimal and swelling disappears within three weeks.

Will I have to remove the stitches?

Stitches will be removed after ten days.

Will there be scars?

Scars will run from the armpit to the elbow on the inside arm.

    • The Reunification Palace: This is one of the most important buildings in the city. Here on April 30th 1975 the ‘American War’ officially ended when tank number 843 of the North Vietnamese Army crashed through the gates of what was, at the time, the residence of the President of the Republic of Vietnam.
    • War Remnants Museum: Formerly known as the Museum of American War Crimes, this is a poignant display of the futility of war. Some of the black and white photography in the ‘Requiem’ exhibit is particularly touching, dedicated to both foreign and Vietnamese journalists and photographers who perished during the conflict. The courtyard outside contains the spoils of war, namely rusting jets, tanks and cannons captured from the American military machine.
    • Notre Dame Cathedral and Old Post Office: Built between 1877 and 1883 this is one of the city’s best examples of classical French colonial architecture. Remarkably, every stone used in its creation was shipped from France to Vietnam. Her two 40-metre towers, topped with iron spires, dominate the city’s sky line. The Old Post Office is another example of French colonial architecture and is also the country’s largest working post office.
