Arm Lift Oklahoma City: Brachioplasty

Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and even heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance due to excess skin and localized fat deposits. That is where the arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, comes in. The arm lift, Oklahoma’s most popular solution for sagging arms, works to reshape muscle tissue and remove excess fat giving you toned and shapely arms.

What to expect from an arm lift

When looking for an arm lift, Oklahoma City patients sometimes get confused by the empty promises floating around television commercials and physician websites. Here is what you can expect your arm lift to accomplish:

  • Reduce excess sagging skin
  • Tighten supportive tissue
  • Reduce localized pockets of fat
  • Redefine the shape of arms

In order to achieve optimum results from the arm lift surgery, patients can expect to see a fine scar on the inside of the upper arm.

Good candidates for arm lift surgery

When looking for arm lift surgery, OKC is full of surgeons that will promise optimum results on just about anybody, but that simply is not the case. Before you get an arm lift surgery, Oklahoma doctors should be looking for the following signs of a good candidate:

  • Relatively stable weight
  • Relatively normal weight
  • Non-smokers

Step 1 – Anesthesia

Anesthesia will be administered by a board-certified M.D. anesthesiologist.

Step 2 – The Incision

Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, as well as the best judgment of your plastic surgeon. Incisions are generally placed on the inside of the arm or on the back of the arm, depending on the surgeon’s preference, and may extend from the underarm (axilla) to just above the elbow. If fat is to be reduced during your arm lift, it will be excised or treated with liposuction.

Depending on your specific conditions, incisions may be more limited. Then, underlying supportive tissue is tightened and reshaped with internal sutures. Finally, the skin is smoothed over the new contour of your arm.

Step 3 – Closing the Incisions

Your incisions will be closed with sutures.

Step 4 – See the Results

The smoother tighter contouring that result from brachioplasty are apparent almost immediately, although initially obscured by some swelling and bruising. Your new shapely and toned upper arm is dramatically improved both in appearance and feel.
