Fluctuations in weight, natural aging, and even heredity can cause your upper arms to have a sagging appearance due to excess skin and localized fat deposits. That is where the arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, comes in. An arm lift offers a 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 considering an arm lift, Oklahoma City patients can expect to accomplish:

  • Reduce excess sagging skin

  • Tighten supportive tissue

  • Reduce localized pockets of fat

  • Redefine the shape of arms

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. For best results, a patient should have:

  • Relatively stable weight

  • Relatively normal weight

  • Non-smokers

The Surgery

When getting an arm lift in Oklahoma by Dr. Tim Love, rest assured he will fully explain the procedure. He will ensure you are comfortable and will help you set realistic expectations for the outcome of your arm lift.

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.

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.

Body Fat Grafting
When the contours of your breast or buttocks need some fine tuning, body fat grafting may be the right technique to ensure smooth lines, symmetry and full volume in these areas of your body. Body fat grafting utilizes your own fat cells to enhance targeted areas and provide a more aesthetic overall appearance. Dr. Love can even perform body fat grafting in concert with other treatments like a tummy tuck or breast augmentation/reconstruction, in order to fine tune your results.

Tummy Tuck
For those who don’t like the effects that pregnancy, aging, weight fluctuations or prior surgery have had on the appearance of their abdomen, a tummy tuck may provide desirable results! A tummy tuck is not primarily designed to reduce weight. Instead, Dr. Love focuses on shaping the tummy area to reduce the appearance of sagging or loose skin in the abdominal area. Before surgery, Dr. Love will help you understand realistic expectations from your tummy tuck procedure and answer all your questions. Many patients are very happy with their appearance after a tummy tuck from Dr. Love.
