Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) in Dallas, TX
Your arms show the effects of aging and weight gain more than most people realize. When was the last time you went out sleeveless to a special occasion? Is it because too much fat and excess skin have gathered on your arms? Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles A. Wallace, M.D. performs arm lift surgery for Plano and Frisco area residents, including anywhere in Dallas, TX, who want to tone their arms for a more youthful and sexy self.
What is an Arm Lift?
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is the ideal way to tone and shape your arms, so they look youthful and slim. Unfortunately, sometimes things have “headed south” and your arms become the scene of drooping skin and excess fat, or you have had major weight loss, and your skin has not contracted enough to keep up with the new you. In these cases, an arm lift from Dr. Wallace is the state-of-the-art body contouring experience. Now is the time to change and update your appearance. So why wait to enjoy the benefits?
The Best Candidates for Arm Lift
Do you need help to improve droopy, sagging upper arms resulting from weight loss, the natural aging process or even heredity? If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin, this procedure may be right for you. By addressing excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissue and localized fat deposits, an arm lift can enhance and reshape your arms, offering a more toned appearance. If this sounds like you, set up your complimentary one-on-one consultation with Dr. Wallace.
Planning Your Arm Lift Surgery
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, removes excess hanging skin from the underarm and reshapes the under portion of the upper arm – from the armpit area to the elbow. Even regular exercise and strength training cannot get rid of excess sagging skin in this area. Exercise can tone and tighten muscles, but it cannot tighten your skin and frequently thin people may also have sagging upper arms due to the effects of prior weight loss, aging, and genetics. If any of this applies to you, then don’t hesitate to set up your consultation with Dr. Wallace.
Preparing for Your Arm Lift Surgery
Preparing for your arm lift with Dr. Charles A. Wallace, M.D. will include discussing a number of questions about your health, desires, and lifestyle. Dr. Wallace will give you all the necessary instructions, so you are prepared for your arm lift surgery.
The Arm Lift Procedure
With Dr. Wallace, the incision length and pattern during arm lift surgery depends on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. Incisions are generally placed by Dr. Wallace on the inside of the arm or on the back of the arm and may extend from the underarm (axilla) to just above the elbow. Excess fat may be directly excised or treated with liposuction. And depending on your specific condition, your incisions may be more limited. Then, the underlying supportive tissue is tightened and reshaped with internal sutures by Dr. Wallace. Finally, the skin is smoothed over for a new contour of your arm.

After Your Arm Lift Surgery
Your incisions will be closed by Dr. Wallace either with absorbable sutures or stitches that will be removed within one to two weeks following your arm lift. During your recovery from arm lift surgery, dressings or bandages may be applied to your incisions and your arms may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling following surgery. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid. You will be given specific instructions on how to care for the surgical site and drains, medications to apply or to take orally to aid healing, specific concerns to look for and when to follow up with Dr. Wallace.
Getting Back to Normal Following Arm Lift Surgery
The smoother, tighter contours that result from brachioplasty are apparent almost immediately following your procedure, although there will likely be some swelling and bruising. Dr. Wallace will advise you on when you can resume your normal activities, but before long you will be showing off your new toned and fit arms!
