Brachioplasty in Turkey

Brachioplasty Turkey

Brachioplasty or upper arm lifting surgery is a plastic surgery type for enhancing the appearance of the arms in the upper arm area by correcting issues such as sagging skin and excess fat and reshaping the underlying tissue.

Brachioplasty Procedure

Brachioplasty takes from two to four hours and is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Incisions are made either on the back or inside the arm, and excess fat is removed by liposuction or excision. Excess skin is removed, and underlying tissue is reshaped.
Patient profile
Brachioplasty is usually sought by patients seeking to achieve a slim, toned appearance of the upper arms by removing sagging skin and excess fat.
You should be healthy, at a stable weight, and ideally a nonsmoker in order to have an upper arm lifting.

Brachioplasty Costs

Costs of brachioplasty can vary widely according to the surgeon’s experience and the exact type of procedure. Costs of brachioplasty in Turkey and many other cosmetic procedures are much lower compared to Europe and the US.
In most cases, upper arm lifting is considered cosmetic surgery and, therefore, not covered by health insurance.
Always inquire about the full price, which considers the price of surgery and additional costs such as anesthesia fees, operating room facilities and hospital costs, examinations, second procedure cost if necessary, etc.


During brachioplasty consultations, the following is discussed: surgical goals; medical history; substances used currently, including medications, supplements, alcohol, drugs, and tobacco; current health status; the expected outcome; postoperative care and potential complications.
The arms are measured and examined, and photographs are taken. Options for the upper arm lifting are discussed, after which the surgeon recommends an appropriate course of treatment.
It is advised to make full use of the consultation appointment in order to make as informed of a decision as possible. It is essential for the upper arm lifting’s success to honestly answer all of the surgeon’s inquiries and openly ask about anything requiring clarification.

Before Brachioplasty

The following may be requested from you before having your brachioplasty:

  • Getting tests for medical evaluation
  • Abstaining from nicotine
  • Abstaining from aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements
  • Taking specific medications or adjusting current medication

Postoperative Care Recovery

After brachioplasty, the arms are covered with bandages as the incisions heal. Thin tubes might be placed under the skin for draining any build-up of excess blood or fluids. You are instructed on what medication to use for healing and how to take care of the treated area during your recovery. A follow-up appointment is arranged. The stitches are removed within one to two weeks after the upper arm lifting.

The skin in the incision area should always be handled gently without exposure to any abrasive motion. Any form of physical strain should be avoided at the beginning stages of your recovery.
Significant swelling is expected in the first 10 to 14 days after the brachioplasty. The results of the upper arm lifting are noticeable immediately after the surgery. Still, you should expect to see the final results only after external and internal healing is complete and the swelling and bruising go down entirely.
Scars remaining after the upper arm lifting are permanent but fade over time.
It is advised to inquire with your surgeon concerning the period immediately after the brachioplasty and during recovery. You may have questions about where you will be placed after the surgery, what medications you will be given, and when to arrange an appointment for follow-up care.


In some cases, multiple surgeries are needed for the best results.
The results of brachioplasty are permanent but can be altered through significant weight fluctuations, aging, and gravity. You should be able to preserve your upper arm lifting results if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight.

Brachioplasty Frequently Asked Questions

If there is a marked slackening of the skin, our specialists can ensure that the skin is tightened. The highly qualified doctors use proven tightening techniques to remove excess skin and subcutaneous fatty tissue. An upper arm lift represents the natural shape of the arms and ensures a sporty and slim figure.

Even with an upper arm lift, risks cannot be completely ruled out. After-bleeding, swelling, impaired wound healing, bruising, infections, or thrombosis can occur in isolated cases. However, the high-quality conditions combined with the high level of expertise of our specialists minimize the risks.

An upper arm lift is often associated with larger skin incisions. Therefore, longer scars are challenging to avoid. However, the scar line runs as far as possible unobtrusively along the inside or back of the upper arm. This creates harmonious body proportions.

We carry out an upper arm lift on all patients who are in good general health. However, our medical team recommends that a patient should be at least 18 years old. Female patients must not be pregnant at this time.
