Arm Lift Gone Wrong     

If you've Suffered Brachioplasty Negligence, you Need the Arm Lift Expertise of Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors

An arm lift or brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces excess sagging skin sometimes referred to as ‘bingo wings’ that droops downward. The arm lift also tightens the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm to improve the arm’s contour and appearance.

The sagging skin is caused by substantial fluctuations in weight and heredity. Simple ageing is also a cause. As we age skin becomes looser and less elastic and begins to droop and sag, most commonly in the upper arm. A brachioplasty is seen by cosmetic surgery patients as an alternative to pure liposuction and appropriate diet and exercise.

During an arm lift procedure, the cosmetic surgeon makes a long surgical incision extending from the elbow to the armpit or axilla. The plastic surgeon then cuts away excess skin and fat from the underside of the upper arm. This procedure may be combined with liposuction if there is a considerable amount of surplus fat. The remaining skin is pulled taut over the arm and the arm skin edges are then stitched together using internal stitches.

However when an arm lift goes wrong due to cosmetic care that has fallen short of acceptable medical standards then the patient can be left with distressing results. If that is the case then the patient may be able to make a claim for financial recompense.

If this has happened to you, then call on the arm lift negligence experts at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors. Speak to us on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our dedicated arm lift solicitors when your arm lift has gone wrong.

What Can Go Wrong with an Arm Lift?

Depending on the extent of the arm lift procedure the patient’s recovery time can be quite extensive. If both arms are ‘lifted’, then both arms are immobilized to ensure proper healing. The sutures from the arm lift surgery are normally removed after three weeks but the swelling and bruising as a result of the brachioplasty will take up to two months to subside.

So while it is normal for patients to feel some pain and discomfort following a brachioplasty procedure, when an arm lift goes wrong, then the patient may experience the following additional complications:

  • Damage to the muscles and nerves in the arm causing numbness in the arm
  • Asymmetry
  • Fat necrosis – the fatty deposits underneath the reconstructed skin may die.
  • Inappropriate scarring

If any of these symptoms of an arm lift surgery gone wrong have happened to you then you may have suffered brachioplasty negligence and we may be able to assist you in making a claim for financial compensation.
