There are several operational options to return the skin of the hands youth and elasticity:
The tightening of the skin of the hands (brachioplasty) is indispensable for reducing the tone and volume of the triceps and biceps muscles, which is a result of age-related changes. It will help with the loss of elasticity of the skin in the shoulder area, a significant decrease in the volume of subcutaneous fat caused by sharp weight fluctuations.
Arm tightening will be effective in case of refusal to exercise, resulting in muscle dystrophy. It is used for obesity, as a correction after liposuction.
Muscle tonus and the general condition of the skin of the hands, as well as the hands, are also affected by bad habits, the lack of cosmetic care. Until a certain age, such skin transformations are completely reversible and without surgery. It is enough to adjust the diet and lifestyle, add massage courses and cosmetics (nutritious and with a lifting effect). In the case when it is impossible to correct the situation on your own, a full-fledged operation can be replaced with a hand-tightening with the help of special threads. But, It is worth noting that such a sparing correction will be effective only with a slight sagging of the skin.
Among the contraindications to the surgical procedure for the restoration of the contour of the hands are obesity, diabetes, diseases of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, oncology, regardless of location. In addition, the doctor may refuse to perform brachioplasty in the presence of operations on the axillary lymph nodes, excessive sweating in the armpits, as well as the presence of dermatological diseases in this area.
A personal meeting with a plastic surgeon is obligatory in preparation for contouring hands. This is due to the fact that the consultation doctor will determine whether you need surgery, or else the problem can be solved more gentle method. If an operative intervention is indicated, a specific technique will be selected depending on the complexity of the situation, the individual characteristics of the patient.
While choosing a suitable clinic, pay attention to patient reviews.
At the stage of preparation for the operation “brachioplasty”, a routine examination is carried out, which consists of taking the necessary tests (blood, urine), conducting an electrocardiogram, consulting support from the therapist and anesthesiologist. In the case when the patient has chronic diseases, additional examinations and consultations of relevant specialists may be added.
The operation itself is performed under general anesthesia, so preparation requires refraining from eating on the eve of the procedure.
It is recommended to stay in the hospital after surgery. The duration will be determined by the surgeon in each particular case, but not more than two days.
The postoperative dressing and sutures (if no absorbable sutures were used) are removed after 1.5-2 weeks.
The norm is the short-term formation of edema and hematomas, feeling of tightness of the skin.
Full recovery occurs in one and a half – two months. At this time, it is worth refusing to exercise the hands and wrists, swimming, tanning, bad habits. Be sure to wear compression underwear and control the weight of your body. Complying with all the prescriptions of the doctor, controlling the weight of your own body guarantees a long-term effect from the operation (about 10 years).
The price of the procedure will be determined by the surgeon during a personal consultation. The price depends on the scale and type of the proposed operation and individual peculiarities.
