What Exactly to Expect from Dr. Yates’ Arm Lift Surgery Utah

If done properly by a trained and talented surgeon, you can experience a surgical miracle in your drooping, fatty arms. The technical term of the surgery is brachioplasty, but it is better known in common parlance as arm lift surgery.

Due to genetic makeup and other factors such as lack of exercise and significant weight fluctuations, you may experience sagging of skin in the under portion of your upper arms – specifically, the lower region between your elbow and armpit. Salt Lake City Plastic Surgeon Dr. York Yates combines his innate artistry and precise surgery hands in performing one of the finest brachioplasty procedures on this side of Utah.

Being accomplished and highly skilled surgeon, your upper arms are definitely in good hands with Dr. Yates. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and has years of impressive brachioplasty practice. You are an ideal candidate for Arm Lift Surgery Utah if you have excess skin and fat in the upper arms that appear disproportionate with the rest of your body. More importantly, you are seeking to improve the shape of your upper arms and a scar on the inner arm is an acceptable trade off. You can set up a personal consultation with Dr. Yates by contacting their Salt Lake City Office at (801) 525-8741.

At the consultation, he will examine you thoroughly to devise a precise surgical plan applicable to your aesthetic condition. If the standard brachioplasty is not the ideal procedure upon examining your condition and considering your cosmetic goal, Dr. Yates may recommend for a liposuction, combination of brachioplasty and lipo, or  a mini arm lift surgery.

If any surgery is necessary, you will be instructed as to pre-op preparations, like avoiding cigarette smoking or possibly fasting hours before the procedure. You will also be informed and given option as to the anesthetic to use, which is normally either general anesthesia or sedation with local anesthetic. Brachioplasty is generally an outpatient procedure, so you don’t have to spend a day in the hospital. But if you live within considerable distance from Salt Lake City, you may choose to stay in a nearby aftercare facility or in a hotel. Having a private duty nurse to take care of you right after surgery is also an option. Furthermore, you will be given clear instructions regarding fast recovery from brachioplasty. It is the desire as well of Dr. Yates that your work and normal routine are less disrupted as possible.
