Arm Lift

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper arm. With age, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby, leading patients throughout Utah to seek an arm lift.

Salt Lake City area plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Rose will discuss brachioplasty with patients who want to tighten this skin and look as good as they feel. In some cases Dr. Rose may suggest liposuction to be used alone or in conjunction with your arm lift to remove excess fat in the upper arms.

The Procedure

Removal of excess skin and fat from upper arms is an outpatient procedure that takes approximately 2 to 3 hours. The incision is placed on the inside of the upper arm, and the length will vary depending on the amount of loose skin and excess fat to be removed. For patients whose arm lift includes liposuction near Salt Lake City, additional fat will be removed using small cannulas. Dr. Rose uses general anesthesia at the Riverwoods Surgery Center for optimal patient safety and comfort.

Recovery from arm lift surgery involves some swelling, soreness, and bruising as the tissues heal. Most patients can return to work after 2 weeks, and more strenuous activities in approximately 4 weeks.

Ashely and Kacey were both so sweet and nice to me as well!! Jody helped me along the way from a past surgery from another Dr. who did a horrible job but Dr. Rose explained to me in detail on what has happened and what he would do to help me look and feel better!! I can't not express the way his "ART" made me happy!! Once my tape could be removed my jaw hit the floor!! He fixed another Dr's mistake and I couldn't believe it once I saw my scars!! They are so thin now thanks to Dr. Rose!! I am so glad I found him!! I shopped around this time and I am more then 110% happy with his work!! He has the best staff who treat me so nice and they all have been amazing and easy to deal with on a professional level that was beyond my expectations!! After the way I was treated from my last Dr. from the other Dr. was night and day differeance. I will be a walking bill board for Dr. Rose and word of mouth goes a long ways in my book. It's hard to make me happy and the Rose clinic is by far the best office I have stepped foot in!!! I feel like I owe them the world!!Shannon Miller
