The laxity of the medial regions of the arms and chest below the armpit are common deformities.We present already in patients younger than 40 years and continues due to changes in the elasticity of the skin, superficial fascia laxity and excessive accumulation of subcutaneous tissue, this also associated with weight loss, excessive.
Although the arms are mainly affected the axillary regions, chest wall, breast side edges, the forearm and hand require particular attention with regard to medical or surgical treatment.
Surgical correction of these conditions requires a detailed assessment to determine the requirements of each particular case: for mild ptosis, as surgeon to the patient suggest a routine of exercise and strict nutrition before surgical correction, for cases where the accumulation of fat is mild, you canperform liposuction and placement of strips for a period less than 3 weeks, where the skin is very loose resources to the surgery itself, given that it leaves scars that even with proper healing and placement are unaesthetic and extensive. This is a limitation especially if the patient lives in a town with very hot climate where your clothing needs to be sleeveless or short sleeves. It is important to make clear to the patient the risks and benefits of this procedure, and especially discuss the resulting scars after surgery.
The techniques provide a psychological benefit to patients but they must realize that the correction of this deformity requires significant measures scars. The location and degree of sagging and dry tissue vary in each patient, either by excess fat or loss of skin elasticity. The position and extent of the cuts are in line with the deformity, there shall be no earlier or later in view of the patient.

The risks of infection are even higher when making incisions in the buttock crease. Smokers should be warned to stop, as smoking may increase the risk of complications and delay healing.Another complication that can occur is the change of the implant and causing uneven results appear.
