Arm Lift Procedures for Patients in Tampa

arm-lifeAn arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reduces excess skin on the upper arm and under arm areas. People typically experience sagging or loose skin around their arms following dramatic weight loss, or as a result of the natural aging process. When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, an arm lift can tighten and smooth this excess skin, making the arms appear firmer and more defined. This can especially beneficial for people living in the Tampa Bay area, where the Florida warmth and sunshine make short-sleeved or sleeveless tops a necessity nearly year-round.

At Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, cosmetic surgeon Dr. John Roach can perform arm lift surgeries for patients from Clearwater, Tampa, Lutz, Palm Harbor, and other nearby communities. A brachioplasty procedure from Dr. Roach usually involves the following steps:

  • Incisions are made either on the inside or the back of the arm, and may run from the upper underarm area to the elbow
  • Excess skin is removed, and Dr. Roach tightens and reshapes the underlying tissue to form new contours
  • Liposuction may also be used to remove any excess fat from the area

Arm lift patients should expect to experience some scarring, though Dr. Roach takes great care to minimize the appearance of scars.  Dr. Roach may also incorporate personal physical training or yoga sessions before and after your surgery, so that you can experience optimal results and help keep your arms looking slim and toned in the years following your plastic surgery procedure.
