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.

Testimonials

I have been meaning to send you an email and let you know how happy I am with my results and experience with you. I went to 5 different doctors and chose you. Knowing different results with people that I know, I am pretty sure that those other doctors would have done a fine job. After going to your office and the experience that I had with you and your staff, I knew that you were the doctor for me. You are the most professional doctor that I saw. It was so much more comfortable for me to go over all of the information about breast augmentation with you at your desk and me fully dressed. I didn't have that experience with any of the other doctors. You have a way of making people feel at ease as much as possible. It was nice to have a doctor tell me sizes to consider that would be proportionate to my body frame.

Your staff is so wonderful. Each person in your office is so pleasant to deal with. I don't think that you could have better staff and it helped make my final decision to go to you to have my procedure done.

You did an amazing job!! This is confirmed to me each time one of my friends or family members tells me how natural and great I look. I have decided, if you have something about yourself that bothers you and can be fixed, fix it! The confidence boost that this breast augmentation has given me is awesome. My husband said Dang, I have never heard you talk about any part of yourself like this before. I replied with, Have you ever seen any part of me look so great? We both said that you must have been very gentle during surgery, because I had one tiny little bruise and I felt great quickly after.

I am very happy with my results and I would recommend you to anyone. I have found myself trying to think of people that I could tell to go to you and I realized it probably wouldn't be very nice to tell people that they need to improve their looks if they hadn't even thought of it before. Two of my friends have come to you already and feel the same as I do. We need more surgeons out there like you.

Sincerely,K
