Loose, sagging, and excess skin in the upper arms or thighs?

Get arm or leg lift surgery in Istanbul

Severely loose and sagging skin in the upper arms or thighs may develop due to various factors. These factors typically include natural aging, weight fluctuation, excessive weight loss, or genetic factors. In some patients, excess arm or thigh skin can cause physical problems like chafing, rashes, and skin irritation. 

Sometimes, a healthy diet and physical workout may not be effective. In such cases, arm lift and leg lift procedures in Turkey can help get rid of sagging excessive skin and regain your confidence

What is an Arm or Leg/Thigh lift?

An arm lift (brachioplasty) or leg lift is a surgical procedure designed to give you firm, toned and well-defined arms or thighs by removing downward-drooping excess skin and fat. In some cases, it can be combined with targeted liposuction to improve overall arm or legs contours. 

At Body Clinic Turkey, we provide a full range of advanced arm lift or leg lift procedures customised to patients’ specific needs. 

The benefits of these procedures are:

About The Procedure

Before The Surgery

Before planning the surgery, we will evaluate and investigate the patient in detail to determine whether s/he is suitable for the procedure. 

It is performed under general anaesthesia so they do not feel any pain during the procedure. Patients are anesthetised, and necessary procedures are carried out to remove the excess skin. We may also perform some blood tests before the surgery if required. 

Arm lift or leg/thigh lift is a very comfortable procedure. The surgery is performed by our specialist physician at Body Clinic Turkey. There may be minor pain afterwards, but it can be relieved with painkillers. As long as there is no general health problem, anyone (men and women of all ages) can have arm or leg lift surgery in Turkey. 

Remember, the initial consultation is your time to get answers to all your questions related to the treatment. So, do not hesitate to bring your list of questions and ask without any fear. A good doctor always listens to their patients. 

Important Note: If you still have excess weight and you are planning weight loss, we recommend having this surgery after shedding excess weight. Thus, the result you get on your arms and legs will be perfect. 

Also, it is important to quit smoking at least two weeks before the surgery. Smoking causes narrowing in the veins, thus impairing blood supply in the treated surgery area and delaying the recovery period. For this reason, quitting smoking before thigh lift surgery allows you to recover faster, as in all surgical interventions.

Step-by-Step Procedure for Arm Lift or Leg/Thigh Lift Surgery in Turkey

Day 1: Pre-Operative Procedure & Examination 

We gather your expectations, take your photos at our clinic, and plan the surgery to give your arms and legs the desired shape. While planning, we consider the patient’s skin quality, thickness of the fat tissue, the amount of sagging and your expectations. In addition, you will have your pre-operative laboratory tests and anesthesia consultation at our clinic. Then, you will be dropped off at your hotel. 

Day 2: The Surgery & Overnight Stay At The Hospital 

At 07:00 the following morning, you will be admitted to the hospital, and your procedure starts. The surgery is carried out under general anesthesia and lasts for 3-3.5 hours. Sagging skin and fat tissues are surgically removed. The operation ends with stretching the skin and suturing and bandaging. After the operation, you will stay in the hospital for one night. Necessary nursing and care services are provided here. 

Day 3: Discharge From The Hospital 

The next morning, your doctor will examine you, and you will be discharged. Before the discharge, you will be provided with all your medicines as well as post-operative care. Then, you will be dropped off at your hotel, and you have enough free time to take rest. 

Day 4: Control Examination 

Your control examination will be carried out at the clinic. 

Day 5 - 8: Free Time 

Now, you will have enough free time to travel and explore the city if you want. It is safe. During this time, your nurse will make follow-up calls several times to gather information about your general condition. 

Day 9: Final Examination & Post-Operative Care 

You will visit our clinic for the final examination. We will remove your band-aids, allowing you to return to your country safely. Our nurses will inform you about your post-operative care and give you information sheets. 

For the first, third and sixth months after the surgery, we will provide online consultation to you.

Am I The Right Candidate of Arm Lift or Leg Lift in Turkey?

Yes, you are if you:

Post Procedure / Recovery

The recovery period varies from patient to patient, depending on the extent of lift. Typically, patients should be able to recover between 1-3 weeks after the procedure. Patients should be able to walk the day after surgery. Brisk walking for a few minutes several times a day is encouraged to prevent blood clots in the legs. 

Patients should sleep with their arms or legs elevated on pillows for the first couple of weeks to reduce swelling. Any scars should lighten in colour after 9-12 months of the procedure.


The duration of the operation may vary for each person. However, it is generally planned to be completed in 3-5 hours. The procedure is applied to both arms or legs. After removing excess skin, the surgeon places stitches very carefully. Since the stitch mark will remain on the inner side of the arm or thighs, it can be hardly noticed from the outside. 

After the surgery, patients stay in the hospital for one or two nights. If there is not a problem with their general health conditions, they are discharged with recommendations.

Except for a very unusual situation, it is not expected to sag again after a successfully performed surgery. The thigh area has recovered considerably well after the surgery.

There is no specific chronological age to have this rejuvenating procedure. When you look in the mirror and notice sagging or excess skin dropping downwards and it truly bothers you, you can contact Body Clinic Turkey for a consultation. Remember, it should never be decided under pressure from others.

Each patient has a unique anatomical configuration and expectations. Accordingly, we provide a clear and accurate price quote for arm or leg lifts during the initial consultation.
