What is an Arm Lift?

If your diet and exercise regimens aren’t reducing the sagging skin on your upper arms, an arm lift may help. At Dermacare Plastic Surgery, we are here to help you regain confidence with our arm lift procedure. The plastic surgery professionals of Dermacare understand that it is more than an arm lift; it’s a lifestyle lift, and you deserve the best.

An Arm Lift, or Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that helps Phoenix patients get rid of excess sagging skin that droops downward. It tightens and smooths the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm and reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.

Arm Lift Candidates

Fluctuations in weight or extreme weight loss, growing older, and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. While working out will help improve the muscle definition in the arm, having an excess amount of loose skin can often hide these results. Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms is sagging or appears loose and full due to excess skin and fat.

In general, ideal arm lift surgery candidates in Phoenix and surrounding areas are:

  • Healthy adults without medical conditions that may impair healing or increase the risks associated with surgery.
  • Adults with flabby or sagging upper arm skin or significant upper arm skin laxity.
  • Adults of any age who have a relatively stable weight and are not significantly overweight.
  • Non-smoking individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations.

Dr Rod is a very skilled surgeon. After losing more than half my body weight, I had several different procedures done. A lot of extra skin removal and reconstruction. My results were fantastic! His staff is so friendly and pleasant to work with. His nurse Julie is incredibly kind and helpful. I highly recommend this place.

I wouldn’t hesitate to come here again or refer friends and family. Everyone is so kind and they take time to answer all questions. My surgery went so smoothly and the results were exactly what I was told they would be.

Couldn’t be more happy with the results I found from this experience. Fantastic staff and people over all. Would recommend.
