A woman showing sculpted arms after arm reduction surgeryArm reduction surgery, or brachioplasty, is a cosmetic procedure designed to reshape and contour the upper arms.

This surgery can be a transformative solution for people struggling with excess skin or fat in this area. However, like any surgical procedure, it’s essential to weigh the pros and cons to determine it is right for you.

Discover some critical factors to consider below.

What Is Arm Reduction or Brachioplasty Surgery?

Brachioplasty involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper arms, resulting in a tighter, more toned appearance. This procedure is often sought by people who have experienced significant weight loss or those who are unhappy with the appearance of their arms due to aging or genetics.

Is an Arm Reduction Surgery Right for Me?

Brachioplasty might be suitable for you if you:

  • Exhibit loose skin in your upper arms
  • Are a non-smoker
  • Do not have underlying medical conditions, like anemia, that heighten the risks associated with surgery
  • Maintain a stable weight, minimizing the likelihood of significant weight fluctuations over time
  • Can be comfortable with the visibility of a scar, typically spanning the length of the upper arm

Benefits of Arm Reduction Surgery

Potential Risks and Considerations

What is liposuction and how is it used?

When patients think of plastic surgery, one of the most commonly requested treatments that comes to mind is that of liposuction. Liposuction is a procedure that is performed for patients in the Hattiesburg, MS area to enhance the body contours with the manual removal of fat deposits. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, patients in the area will find that this treatment can help address problem areas that do not resolve well with traditional methods of diet and exercise. This targeted procedure can make a dramatic impact on areas such as the:

  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

These are the more common areas of treatment, though liposuction can be used anywhere on the face and body to remove fat cells and provide smoother contours.

Who is a candidate for liposuction?

Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot want patients to understand that liposuction is not a weight loss solution. Instead, it is recommended for patients who want body contouring benefits when diet and exercise can no longer provide results. Patients who are the best candidates for this procedure are those who are within a healthy, ideal weight and want to address targeted areas of fat deposits that are nonresponsive to other means of treatment. Liposuction does not replace healthy eating or regular exercise, so patients who are the best fit for this treatment are those who already lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

Are liposuction results permanent?

The results of treatment can be permanent, and those who enjoy the longer-lasting results are those who continue to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle to maintain a healthy weight. Patients will see even better results if they integrate mild to moderate cardiovascular and strength training exercises several days a week and eat fresh, whole foods on a daily basis.

Turn back time with Botox injections

When patients come to the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg seeking a solution to aging skin, our team of professionals have a wide range of surgical and nonsurgical options to choose from. Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot of Hattiesburg, MS may suggest the benefits of Botox injections.

What is Botox?

Most of our patients have heard of Botox, but most don’t know exactly how Botox works. Botox is a neuromodulator that is made with botulinum toxin type A. This medication is FDA approved for not only cosmetic use, but for conditions such as chronic headaches and migraines, excessive sweating, and even overactive bladder. The medication works by reducing contractions of certain muscles. When injected into muscles of the face, dynamic wrinkles will smooth. These include glabellar lines, forehead folds, and crow’s feet. While not a long-term option, results from Botox can last up to six months before reinjection is required.

Who is a candidate for Botox?

Most adult men and women over the age of 30 are proper candidates for Botox injections as an anti-aging solution. Botox is one of many injectables available in our office, and can be combined with dermal fillers for a complete and natural-looking transformation. These cosmetic injectables can turn back time and allow patients to feel confident in their appearance. Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds will diminish with Botox injections, and the overall signs of aging can be slowed.

What should I expect during my Botox appointment?

Botox is injected into the areas of concern right in our office by one of our trained professionals. In just minutes, injections are completed, and patients can return to the rest of their day without any interruption. Results are seen within a week, and continue for several months.
