The Plastic Surgery Center offers brachioplasty and other body lift procedures in the Maryland area.
Are you frustrated with underarm fat that never seems to go away, no matter how much you diet and exercise? You’re not alone, and that’s why hundreds of women trust Dr. Rosenberg to trim away the fat each year.
Toned, slim, tank-top ready arms are on almost everyone’s dream body wish list. However, sagging or loose arm skin can occur as you get older, as your weight fluctuates, or simply as a result of your genetics. Often, this is a problem that exercise alone can’t fix. Fortunately, Dr. Rosenberg at The Plastic Surgery Center in Maryland can help.
Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is just one of the body lift procedures that Dr. Rosenberg performs to tighten and smooth any sagging, loose, or drooping upper arm skin. It can be combined with liposuction to remove any unwanted fat in the upper arm area.
Arm lifts are a great solution to anyone who:
During brachioplasty, an incision will be made on the inside of your arm or on the back of your arm. If any excess fat remains, this will removed with liposuction. Your plastic surgeon will then tighten and reshape the tissue beneath the skin before smoothing the remaining skin over your arm’s new, slim contour.
Recovery period is not long at all, and within a few weeks you’ll be showing off your brand new arms. You should avoid any strenuous exercise for 2 – 4 weeks after surgery, or however long Dr. Rosenberg suggests based on your condition. Avoid any heavy lifting for at least 2 – 4 weeks.
Your arm lift results will be visible almost immediately!

Any surgical incision will leave a scar, but it will be placed in the post discrete location and fade dramatically over time.
