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.
Brachioplasty 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

"This review is for the serious consumer that is interested in empirical research and not just heartfelt narrative self-testimonials, although those subjective measures certainly do validate the objective facts of why Dr. Rosenbaum systemically rates excellent in knowledge, expertise and all aspects of his medical practice. I get to say this because I have a Ph.D. and my background is research, ethics and best practice in clinical standards. As a patient, I am a tough critic, so to please my stringent expectations, I need to see "gold standard" care which I received from Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff. In 1978, I had my first cosmetic surgery when I was 18 years old and my surgeon was internationally recognized. In fact, he was the pioneer in developing certain surgical techniques/procedures that are common practice today. He referred me to my breast imagery M.D., and between the both of them, I had tremendous care over the years! However, after my 60th birthday, I required surgery. I was immediately referred to Dr. Rosenbaum by my elite physicians. Despite the referral, I had the monetary means to access the services of any cosmetic surgeon I wanted, so I thoroughly vetted many, but after conducting a complete background check of Dr. Rosenbaum's clinical experience and then meeting him in person for my initial consultation, I was convinced, that indeed, Dr. Rosenbaum was my top pick. He was knowledgeable on how to accommodate my surgical needs, he explained the procedure and educated me about the benefits and the risks. The second time I met with him, I had a list of questions that we discussed thoroughly and he listened carefully and gave me his full attention. He answered all of my questions in a manner that I could completely understand. His demeanor was patient, attentive and caring. Although it was obvious he had a office filled with patients, however, when you are in the room with him, he makes you feel like all his focus is on you, which is a superior quality. This attribute is high on my list because I am absolutely terrified of surgery , which I conveyed to him. However, he exuded such a sense of confidence that he put me at ease and I remember at the conclusion of my consultations saying to him, "okay Dr. Rosenbaum, I going to have the surgery and I am putting my complete trust in you"! It was a great decision on my part because the entire process was excellent from the beginning to the final outcome. In conjunction to Dr. Rosenbaum's professionalism, his staff is also exceptional. From the very beginning both Nora and Yoly addressed every question and need that I brought to them and did it with the utmost courtesy, kindness, expediency and accuracy. They also knew my angst about having surgery, and having them a phone call, text, or email away, they too, put me at complete ease. Having professional assistants as these two, certainly cause the Rosenbaum practice to significantly exceed his competitors! Nora and Yoly served as a strong support system every step of the way, from the beginning to post surgery. They were absolutely fabulous! So, in conclusion, if you are a smart savvy consumer like I am, then do your research, and if you are looking for excellence with finding a plastic / cosmetic surgeon, you will concur with my findings,Dr. Rosenbaum and his staff represent the true meaning of "Best Practice" and "Gold Standard of Care"!!!

"I am so grateful to have found Dr. Rosenbaum. I had a nipple sparing double mastectomy with reconstruction on 2/3/20 and couldn’t be happier with my experience and results. He takes his time with you, making you feel like you are his only patient. With his vast experience and knowledge he thoroughly explains your options so you can determine the right procedure for you. My reconstruction came out better than I had even anticipated. He is not only knowledgeable and caring but highly skilled. By choosing Dr Rosenbaum you will feel at peace every step of the way. In addition to him being an amazing doctor, his staff is just as great. They are all friendly and accommodating. His assistant Yoly went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed throughout the whole process. Nora was also very helpful in assisting me with my FMLA and insurance paperwork. I highly recommend Dr. Rosenbaum."- M. / Healthgrades / Mar 05, 2020
"I don't normally write reviews, but felt compelled to recommend Dr. Rosenbaum after a flawless breast reduction experience. He and his staff (esp. Yoly) surpassed my expectations in every possible way. I was extremely nervous about the surgery, but was in good hands as Dr. Rosenbaum is detail-oriented and focused on successful, realistic outcomes. Guess what? It shows in his work. One of Miami's top surgeons for post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, he's highly experienced in all aspects/challenges of breast surgery. Dr. Rosenbaum also answered my (many!) questions both before and after surgery with kindness, patience, and substantial good humor. The end result: I had a breast reduction with zero complications, healed wonderfully, and for the first time in my life, feel comfortable in my own body. Not to mention the relief from constant upper body and neck pain. After surgery, I asked myself why I had waited so long for this gift to myself. This has truly been a life changing experience. Thank You Dr. Rosenbaum!"- C. / Google / Jan 31, 2020
What to Expect with Brachioplasty
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.
Brachioplasty 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.
