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

First and foremost I would like to express my sincerest appreciation and thanks to Dr. Rose. As I've come to realize from the many nurses, physical therapist and other staff at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, we were very fortunate to have had Dr. Rose be the attending surgeon for wife's injury. As I understand now, he is one of the country's best in this field of expertise. Everyone that we've spoken with about him has had nothing but praise about his medical talents and ability. We feel very fortunate to have had Dr. Rose to do her surgery. By the way, I had my first opportunity to see the surgical incision and his work today when my wife was at her physical therapy appointment. His suture work could probably qualify him to be a seamstress for Armani Clothes! Wow! Nice Work!

Please let Dr. Rose know of our great appreciation and admiration for him.J
