About Arm Lift Surgery

Dr. Gary Rosenbaum, a board-certified plastic surgeon and the founder of Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. plastic surgery in Miami Beach, FL, is experienced in arm lift surgery (also known as brachioplasty). Arm lift surgery is the surgical tightening and liposuction combo which eliminates excess skin and fat deposits on the upper arm. Men and women alike can benefit from this plastic surgery procedure. Arm lift surgery is commonly the answer when weight loss and exercise do nothing to address the fat and skin on the backside of the upper arm. Find out if you are a candidate for this procedure at a private consultation with Dr. Rosenbaum.

Ideal Candidates

While weight loss can cause sagging skin to appear on the arms, some of the loose skin can also be caused from genetics. This makes it very difficult to tone the upper arm to an individual’s desire. When diet and exercise fail to tone the upper arm, a trusted plastic surgeon can create outstanding results. Ideal candidates for an arm lift exhibit:

  • Loose upper arm skin that is resistant to diet and exercise
  • Loose upper arm skin that appears after losing more than 100 pounds
  • Sagging skin that creates anxiety when wearing sleeveless shirts

What to Expect

After being put under general anesthesia, the incision for brachioplasty is made from the elbow to the upper arm. Loose skin will be trimmed away and the underlying tissue will be pulled tight. This surgery takes about two hours and there is usually no need for an overnight stay unless it is paired with other procedures. Patients should be prepared for temporary swelling and bruising after the surgery. To promote healthy healing and blood circulation, the arms should be kept elevated. Patients can usually return to normal activities in about 3 – 4 weeks.

Anticipated Results

For best results, an arm lift may require liposuction of the fat deposits within the upper arm to make the final look slim and trim. The skin tightening may not be enough to have taut arms. During your consultation, Dr. Rosenbaum will discuss the best course of action given your skin health and condition. Keep in mind that most of the stretch marks will also be taken with the skin; however, if weight is regained, it could damage the treated area. An arm lift gives patients the opportunity to have more defined arms for years to come.
