Over time, you may experience a loss of elasticity and sagging of your upper arms. Your genetics and fluctuations in weight can give your skin a drooping, sagging appearance. While diet and exercise can help tone some areas of your body, they are less likely to be effective for loose skin. A surgical body contouring procedure such as an arm lift is the best solution for sculpting this region and tightening loose skin.
Brachioplasty is a cosmetic surgery to improve the appearance of your upper arms. It involves tightening sagging skin and supporting tissue. With an arm lift, you can regain the slender, fit arms of your younger years. For a more sculpted look, Dr. Steele can perform simultaneous liposuction on your arms to remove excess fat deposits. If you are self-conscious about your arm’s appearance, schedule a consultation for arm lift surgery in Parker County today.
You will receive exceptional service in our accredited outpatient surgery center.

To stay comfortable during your arm lift procedure in Parker County, we can provide you with either general anesthesia. In some cases, a liposuction or a mini-brachioplasty may be performed under local anesthesia. The brachioplasty procedure involves making incisions on the back or along the inside of your arm. These incisions will extend from your armpit to your elbow in a full-incision brachioplasty. With a mini-brachioplasty, the incision will be hidden in the armpit. Dr. Steele can remove fat accumulation with liposuction and get rid of sagging skin before the underlying tissue is tightened and the incision is closed with sutures.
During your recovery, we will apply sterile gauze or bandages to your incisions to minimize infection risk, and a compression bandage or garment to help minimize swelling. We may temporarily place a small drainage tube near your surgical sites to prevent excess fluid accumulation. You will receive specific instructions on caring for the surgical sites, taking your medications, identifying any concerns, and scheduling follow-up visits with Dr. Steele.
If you are a healthy adult who is not substantially overweight, and undergoing only minimal weight changes, you may be a suitable candidate for arm lift surgery. Brachioplasty is beneficial if you have significant upper arm skin laxity, provided you do not have medical conditions that could complicate healing or increase surgical risks. It is important to maintain a positive outlook and have realistic expectations throughout the arm lift process, including treatment and recovery. By maintaining a healthy weight and engaging in regular physical activity, you can expect long-lasting results from your arm lift surgery in Parker County. Should you ever desire revision surgery to further enhance the look of your arms, you can always meet with us again.
During your consultation, we will assess your health and physical condition. We will also discuss important topics such as financing, risks and benefits, recovery time, and expected outcomes. We can answer any questions you have and Dr. Steele will provide access to our database of before and after photographs, so that you have realistic expectations from an arm lift in Parker County.
