Arm Lift

Contact us

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.

Arm Lift Procedure

Arm Lift Salt Lake City and Provo Utah

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.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update April 1st, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 25th.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until April 25th.
  • The office will be fully staffed, and we will see our urgent post-surgical follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • Many surgeries are rescheduled and some of the ones that are committed will occur on a per case basis.

No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • The staff has been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although COVID-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
