Brachioplasty Arm Lift

Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center

Brachioplasty Arm Lift Surgery

Serving clients near Mansfield, Arlington, Fort Worth & Dallas, Texas

Brachioplasty or arm lift is a procedure to improve the aesthetic contour of your upper arms.  Clients may commonly refer these excess skin areas as “bat wings”.  Liposuction only brachioplasty is an excellent procedure for clients with good skin quality and mild fat, as liposuction alone may provide a high level of satisfaction without unsightly incisions or scars. However, those clients with loose skin and moderated to severe fat will require a surgical arm lift or skin excision brachioplasty procedure to provide the most ideal result.

A brachioplasty procedure will result in a scar along the inner portion of your upper arm between the elbow and armpit and there are occasions where the brachioplasty incision may need to extend a short distance from the axilla down to the chest wall to remove excess lateral chest skin (along the bra strap) in a surgical procedure known as an extended brachioplasty or “L” brachioplasty.  This extended brachioplasty procedure is typically used in those individuals who have undergone massive weight loss and are desiring post bariatric body contouring surgery.

What can I expect during my brachioplasty consultation?

During your brachioplasty consultation, you will meet privately and exclusively with Dr. Michael L. Thornton where you will collectively share in the decision making process about your personal needs, desires, and expectations.  Although well qualified, we choose not use patient coordinators, nurse practitioners, or physicians assistants to perform your consultation.  Dr. Thornton will complete a thorough medical history and perform a careful examination to determine if you are a candidate for either liposuction brachioplasty, full brachioplasty, or extended brachioplasty procedure.

Where will my brachioplasty surgery take place?

All skin excision and extended brachioplasty procedures are performed at Baylor Surgicare at Mansfield, a AAAHC certified out-patient surgery center, located in Mansfield, Texas. On average, the procedure will take 4 hours to complete, depending upon the complexity of the case.  Liposuction only brachioplasty may be performed in our private operating room as a minimally invasive procedure using our laser liposuction technology.
