When a nutritious diet and dedicated work in the gym are not helping you achieve beautifully toned, chiseled, and sculpted arms, we can help. The arm lift in Scottsdale is designed to enhance your musculature and tone while permanently eliminating unwanted fat deposits.

When performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ross Stutman, the arm lift is a body contouring procedure that can rejuvenate the look of your arms. This procedure is suitable for both male and female patients who are hoping to improve the cosmetic appearance of their arms.

What Is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift, medically known as a brachioplasty, aims to surgically remove excess and unwanted skin, fat, and tissue on the arms. Many patients approach our practice to fix arm skin that sags, droops, and looks flabby with this procedure. The arm lift aims to:

  • Remove excess skin and fat on your arms
  • Improve your self-esteem and confidence
  • Help you look and feel good about yourself
  • Enhance the cosmetic appearance of the arms
  • Restore the natural shape and smoothness of the arms
  • Give you the confidence to wear your favorite short-sleeve and sleeveless clothes

The art of the procedure is to perform it so the resulting scar from the arm lift in Scottsdale is as minimal and concealed as possible.

The Surgical Procedure

The essential goal of the surgery is to contour and shape the arms using liposuction fat removal techniques. The procedure takes approximately three hours and is conducted under anesthesia.

The primary surgical technique used in this procedure is liposuction. Liposuction is performed to remove excess skin and stubborn fat from the arms. After removing excess fat, Dr. Stutman will surgically remove excess skin. Any remaining skin is then sewn together, resulting in slimmer, tighter arms.

Am I A Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?

You are an excellent candidate for an arm lift in Scottsdale if you are a generally healthy adult with a stable BMI. This procedure is not recommended for those who are overweight or obese. You should be at a stable weight prior to surgery because your results are affected by your ability to maintain a stable, ideal weight.

Ideally, you are a non-smoker and do not have any chronic illnesses.

Rest and Recovery After Your Arm Lift

Your recovery period will take a few weeks, during which you must avoid overextending your arms in any way. During this time, you should:

  • Avoid straining your arms
  • Get help around the house if needed
  • Avoid exercise or vigorous movement
  • Avoid doing anything that may raise your blood pressure
  • Be aware of limitations around driving for the first one to two weeks
  • Take time off work as directed. If your work is sedentary, you may only need one week off; however, if your work is physically demanding, you may need two to three weeks off
  • Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with Dr. Stutman

Dr. Stutman will give you personalized guidance as needed, which you should follow in addition to these general pointers.
