If you are unhappy with the excess skin on your arms, arm lift surgery may be a good option for you. Arm lift surgery, also known in the medical field as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that helps remove excess skin and fat from the arm area. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. This can cause self-consciousness and make it difficult to find clothing that fits well. Dr. Rachel Walker and her team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas in Dallas, TX is here to help patients determine if they are a good fit for this or other surgical procedures available for the face or body.
Understanding how the arm lift procedure works

The surgeon makes an incision along the arm, from the elbow to the armpit. The excess skin and fat are then removed and the wound is closed with stitches. Recovery time varies depending on how invasive the procedure is and how much fat and skin is removed. To ensure proper recovery and reduce the risk of complications, patients need to take time off of work, school, and social activities and closely follow their doctor’s post-operative care instructions. During the initial consultation appointment with our plastic surgeon, patients to learn more about the arrangements they will need to make before and after their procedure.
