Slims Unsightly Arms and Boosts Patient Confidence

Learn more about this popular cosmetic procedure from Tampa's premier triple-board certified plastic surgeon

Excess or sagging skin is a natural result of aging and weight loss, but it’s not something you need to live with. A brachioplasty, or arm lift, can reduce and eliminate underarm skin, cellulite and flab, and help you regain a desirable arm tone and shape.

Dr. David Halpern performs arm lift procedures as a single procedure, or combined with a liposuction treatment to help mitigate the appearance of extra tissue underneath the arm. Come to our office for a consultation about how this procedure works and what kind of results you can expect. The treatment is typically completed in a single session, with a simple incision made in the armpit, and excess tissue removed. Remaining skin is tightened to suit your contours and closed with absorbable sutures.

Arm lifts can create beautiful results for both men and women

Arm lifts are recommended for both men and women following dramatic weight loss, or for patients who have experienced a loss of skin elasticity and increased cellulite as a part of the natural aging process. Results are typically more desirable for patients who are at a stable weight, and who don’t anticipate any major fluctuations in fat or muscle content.

Combat the signs of aging and eliminate flab

While an arm lift can help combat signs of aging, over time patients may experience some loss of elasticity in the treated areas, and possibly some loosening of the skin. These recurrences typically don’t occur for several years, however, with patients enjoying the full extent of their results in the meantime. Dr. David Halpern will explain what you can expect and how to best maintain the shape and tone achieved through your arm lift.

Get ready for the Florida beach season with an arm lift

An arm lift doesn’t just offer taut, contoured arms for patients. It brings them the self-confidence that comes with renewing your physical appearance. As a Triple Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. David Halpern works with each patient individually to determine the right procedure or combination of treatments to achieve your beauty goals. Many of our patients combine arm lift surgery with a body lift, liposuction, tummy tuck or breast augmentation.

We look forward to helping you achieve your beauty goals
