Boosting Confidence with Arm Lift
Age and significant weight loss can create loose, hanging skin on the upper arms, which are sometimes known as “bat wings.” While some types of arm exercise and resistance training can tone the pectorals, biceps, and deltoids to improve the appearance of the upper arms and shoulders, only surgery can treat excess, sagging underarm skin.
Every year, thousands of people in the United States undergo successful upper arm lift surgery to boost their appearance and self-esteem. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gabriel Salloum, M.D., F.A.C.S., performs arm lift plastic surgery in Miami Beach, FL, for men and women who wish to achieve contoured and firm upper arms for a more youthful appearance.
What is an Arm Lift?
Arm lift cosmetic surgery, also known as brachioplasty, is a body contouring procedure that is performed to reshape the upper arms by removing sagging skin and tightening lax tissue caused by age, genetics, and weight loss. An arm lift may also include arm liposuction to create a younger, firmer, fitter appearance.
There are different arm lift options that combine fat and skin-removing techniques, based on each individual patient’s needs. Dr. Salloum customizes each surgical procedure to match his patients’ goals and expectations. Depending on the patient, he may use the following techniques:
Arm Liposuction: Arm liposuction is performed alone to remove fat and sculpt the upper arms when the skin has enough elasticity to tighten on its own after the removal. Liposuction is also often performed during a standard brachioplasty procedure to remove fat.
Limited-Incision Brachioplasty (Mini Arm Lift): Dr. Salloum may recommend a limited-incision arm lift to remove crepe-like, loose skin without much excess fat that is hanging near the armpits.
Standard Brachioplasty: When sagging skin hangs freely from the armpit to the elbow, a standard Brachioplasty procedure combined with liposuction is performed to remove a large amount of hanging skin, suction out excess fat, shape the upper arm, and smooth the tissues.
Extended Brachioplasty: The extended arm lift incision runs along the upper arm and onto the chest wall. This procedure can address a large amount of stretched skin and pockets of stubborn fatty tissue after massive weight loss.
Arm Lift candidates
Dr. Salloum evaluates each individual’s candidacy during a private consultation in Miami Beach. Arm lift candidates are healthy, non-smoking men and women who are close to their ideal weight, have unwanted, sagging skin in the arms, and have realistic surgical expectations.
Patients who have recently lost a significant amount of weight must maintain their weight loss for six months before moving forward with an arm lift or other body contouring plastic surgery to help ensure long-lasting results.

During a private arm lift consultation, Dr. Salloum reviews the patient’s health history and performs a physical examination to assess the shape and condition of the upper arms, including the skin’s elasticity.

The Arm Lift procedure
On the day of the surgery, Dr. Salloum creates marks to guide him in creating the incisions. These are made under the armpits or from the elbow to the chest, based on the surgery details. General anesthesia or local anesthesia is then administered, depending on the extent of the surgery. Liposuction arm lifts require only tiny incisions to contour the arms and can sometimes be performed with local anesthesia.
During the standard or extended arm lift, Dr. Salloum creates an incision using the markings as a guideline, removes the excess skin, and tightens and reshapes the tissues. If needed, ultrasound-guided liposuction is performed to remove pockets of fat.
The doctor then smooths the skin over the new contours of the arm and closes the incision with stitches. The sutures may be placed under the skin to allow for gradual absorption. Contouring both arms during an arm lift procedure typically takes two to three hours.
Once the incisions are closed, a sterile dressing and compression garments are applied and temporary drainage tubes are placed at the incision sites when needed. Patients can typically go home after a short period of observation.
Arm Lift recovery
Dr. Salloum provides each patient with aftercare instructions, which will cover topics like wound care, medications, warning signs of complications, and tips for enhancing the healing process. Patients should follow all instructions closely to achieve the best results.
The compression garment will control swelling, and drainage tubes will remove fluid or blood. Patients typically return to work and resume most daily activities within two weeks. Within six weeks, they may return to their prior activity level and normal exercise routines.
