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.
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

"Barbara SorianoWhen I lost over 30 lbs a couple years ago, I was not happy with the way my neck and my breast looked. I started researching plastic surgeons that could help me with a neck and breast lift. I consulted a few in New York and New Jersey, but wasn’t satisfied with what they were offering. Then, after taking my cousin’s advice, I started to look for a doctor in Miami. That’s how I came across Dr. Rosenbaum I read all his credentials and reviews, and I wrote an email to his staff. From the first response I got from Gladys, I felt confident that I had found the place to have my surgery. Not long after, I flew to Miami to meet Dr. Rosenbaum. Everything was great— his office, his staff ,the way he spent time with me explaining the surgery and recuperation, the fact that he does his surgeries in Mt Sinai OR and you stay overnight. Not to mention, the personalized care and attention. I was sure I had found the doctor I was looking for. Dr. Rosenbaum is caring, professional, experienced, and a lovely person. I must also praise his staff. Nora was upfront about all costs and explained the financial aspects of the procedure in a simple, honest way. Yoli, his nurse, is lovely, and very professional , while Gladys was there for me every time I needed her before and after my procedure. I am so glad I flew from New York to Miami to have my 2 procedures with Dr. Rosenbaum, and could not be happier with the results! He’s changed my life and confidence.!"- B.S. / Google / Jun 05, 2019

"Dr Rosenbaum changed my life for the best. I got exactly what I wished for and I couldn’t be more pleased with my amazing breast reduction results. From myfirst consultation, I knew I had chosen the right surgeon. Not only is he very professional, it is obvious that he’s an expert in breast surgery from his detailed explanation of the procedure. He made me feel comfortable from the start of my journey. The staff was also incredible, Yoli was always available to answer any post of questions."- C.N. / Google / May 26, 2019
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.
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.
