Arm Reduction or Brachioplasty Salt Lake City, UT

Feel confident in your clothing with a brachioplasty in Salt Lake City!

As we age, skin starts to sag, even on the arms. Loose, flapping skin on the arms can be very unattractive and make people avoid wearing clothing that shows their upper arms. Brachioplasty addresses this condition.

What is brachioplasty?

Brachioplasty in Salt Lake City

Also known as an arm lift, brachioplasty reshapes the upper arm — the area from the shoulder to the elbow, making it thinner and more contoured. Sagging in this area is remedied by removing excess skin and fat. The change is immediate and readily seen.

Who are good candidates for a brachioplasty?

An arm lift may be recommended by Dr. Dunkley for patients uncomfortable with the way their upper arm looks. Complaints of shirts fitting too tight or skin drooping on their arms are common. Individuals who can achieve optimal results from the procedure are those who have significant skin laxity in the upper arm and are at a stable weight.

How can I prepare for my brachioplasty procedure?

Certain medication may need to be stopped a week before surgery in Salt Lake City. Smoking impedes blood circulation and the healing process. You will be asked to quit smoking three weeks before surgery. For patients with multiple medical problems or heart conditions, you may need clearance from your regular doctor prior to surgery. Make arrangements for someone to take you to and from surgery.

What can I expect during my brachioplasty surgery?

An arm lift usually takes two to three hours, depending on the extent of the area being treated. Liposuction is done to remove excess fat from the arm. A standard arm lift involves removing skin from the elbow to the armpit area. The incision varies in length but can extend from the armpit to the elbow.

What happens during my recovery from brachioplasty?

Since it is an outpatient procedure, you return home the day of surgery. Results can be seen immediately, though there will be some swelling and bruising that lasts for two to three weeks. A compression garment will need to be worn to support the underlying tissues and help the arms adapt to their new contours. While you recover, you’ll need to refrain from strenuous exercise.
