Arm lift & thigh lift in Bordeaux

Arm lift is a surgical procedure that tighten sagging skin on the arms (loosening due to aging or massive weight loss). Liposuction of the arms is often associated with arm lift.

Depending on the amount of skin excess, incision is either longitudinal (along the inner side of the arm) or horizontal in the armpit, sometimes both. Lifting of the skin of the inner side of the arm is performed after liposuction.

Arm lift with vertical scar :

This is the most common technique because it removes the most skin excess. Scar is inside of the arm (from armpit to elbow).

Arm lift with horizontal scar in the armpit: only indicated if moderate skin excess, scar is horizontal and hidden in the armpit. Result is less spectacular in comparison with a vertical scar lift, but the technique has the advantage of being “lighter”, and can be performed under simple local anesthesia.

The procedure is performed under general or local anesthesia with sedation. Duration: 1 to 2 hours.  Stay in the clinic: ambulatory or 1 night.


Thigh lift


When there is a loosening of the skin at the inner thighs, with fat excess, isolated liposuction can not be enough to correct this disgrace, and only lifting of the thighs can smooth the skin of the inner thighs , remove excess and / or damaged skin, and reduce underlying fat excess.

The thigh lift is an act of cosmetic surgery that can last 1 to 2 hours.

Scar is most often horizontal at the upper partof the thigh, from the crease of the groin to the fold under the buttocks.

In case of excessive circumferential skin, the horizontal scar may be completed by a vertical scar.
