What Is Arm Lift Surgery?

A frustrating side effect of getting older or losing weight is excess skin. At Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss & Gulf Coast Aesthetics in Gulfport, MS, we offer upper arm lift surgery (also known as brachioplasty) as a treatment for patients who cannot seem to tighten and tone the arm with natural methods. Lax skin from the elbow to the shoulder is prevalent, especially for men and women who are advancing in age or have lost weight. An upper arm lift removes this loose, hanging skin sometimes called "bat wings." Dr. Donald Balder is very knowledgeable in skin tightening and fat removal procedures. If you want to hear more about how brachioplasty can change the shape of your upper arms, contact our office to schedule an appointment today.

What Should I Expect with An Arm Lift?

Your recovery period may take around two weeks with lots of elevating the arm. Permit yourself time to heal. You use your arms for many things so most patients are encouraged to ease their way back into their daily activities. If needed, a suture removal appointment will be scheduled around ten days after surgery. Compression garments should be worn until Dr. Balder releases you. All exercise should be eliminated for at least one month except frequent, short walks. If you observe excessive swelling, uncontrolled bleeding, fluid buildup (hematoma), signs of infection, loss of feeling in the hands or arms, or unusual scarring, please get in touch with our office for help.

I have been a patient of Dr. Balder for the last 10 months and cannot say enough good things about him and his practice. My office visits have consisted of hormone replacement therapy, threads, and Opus Plasma for acne scarring. I left each visit pleased with the positive effects of the treatment provided. He has taken the time to listen to my concerns and formulated the best plan for me. His office staff is extremely pleasant and knowledgeable as well. If you are looking for a Doctor that has patience, understanding and provides what you are actually looking for, I HIGHLY recommend Dr Balder.

Just have to say a big thank you for all that Dr. Balder and his amazing staff have done. I recently had some neck threading done and I loved the results. A couple of days after I had some minor issues. I called the office and immediately they had me come in. Dr. Balder was outstanding and made sure that I was ok with zero complications. He took amazing care of me and I am beyond grateful. Thank you Dr. Balder to you and your staff you guys are amazing.

Dr. Balder has a good bedside manner. He explains what is happening and why. He is patient, conscientious, and even keeled. Not only to his patients, but from what I can tell, to his staff as well. His prices are very reasonable. You can tell he’s providing quality for a fair price for elective type services. Definitely recommend.
