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

"The first time I met the doctor was on the recommendation of my GP who suggested to visit Dr. Gary Rosembaum because I needed to have my breast implants changed; on that first occasion I had the prosthesis replaced, the surgery was a total success and recovery very fast!On the following visits, I told the doctor that I wanted to have my eyelids lifted, he told me that this type of surgery is very simple, that it is done in his office that it takes only 40 minutes with a speedy recovery. From that moment I didn’t hesitate for a moment to do the surgery and I cannot be happier!3 months have passed since the blepharoplasty as of today I don't have any scars and the eyes are more open.Thank you Doctor Rosembaum and thanks to your assistant Yoly since you really make me feel super comfortable and safe.I truly recommend Dr Gary Rosembaum for all your plastic surgery needs."- R. / Healthgrades / May 28, 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
"I had an upper eyelid blepharoplasty with Dr. Rosenbaum to correct sagging eyelid skin. I am so pleased with the results! Dr. Rosenbaum was wonderful. His entire staff is great too especially Yoly who assisted him during the procedure. I would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend Dr. Rosenbaum to anyone seeking the services of a plastic surgeon."- R.B. / Google / Dec 11, 2020
"I was referred to Dr. Rosenbaum last year after receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer. Dr. Rosenbaum was part of my surgical team, completing breast reconstruction immediately following the mastectomy. I recommend Dr. Rosenbaum not only for his excellent surgical skills but for his approach to working with patients. I appreciated that he met with me twice prior to any decision being made about my surgery and thoroughly answered all my questions. I also liked his staff who were extremely helpful and supportive. It was a difficult time for me but having a doctor who was helpful and kind (inclusive of his team) made it a little bit easier."- K.C. / Google / Dec 07, 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.
