Arm Reduction (‘Bat-wings’)

Arm Reduction (‘Bat-wings’)

Arm Reduction (Brachioplasty) procedure is an operation to remove excess sagging skin and fatty tissue on the under surface of the arm between the armpit and elbow. This problem is common following massive weight loss. The operation is performed under general anaesthesia which takes up to two hours. Skin and soft tissue is removed from just above the elbow level to the armpit. The skin is stitched together with dissolvable sutures and a dressing is applied with bandages. Post operatively pain relieve is required for a few days.

The scar is placed on the under surface of the arm and armpit which matures over one year’s time. A small tube (drains) may be put in to drain any fluid or blood from the wound and you usually stay one or two days in the hospital. You may need to wear pressure garments for a few weeks. Patients usually recover from this operation after 2 weeks. Driving is allowed after 2-3 weeks and active sport after 2 months.

Complications: Bleeding, infection, wound breakdown, pain, bruising and swelling, seroma, dog ears, scarring (hypertrophic, keloid and stretched), numbness, asymmetry, blood clots.
