Arm Lift in Boca Raton, FL
An arm lift, known as brachioplasty, is a body contouring procedure to remove excess skin and fat of the upper arms. With age or weightloss, the skin and fat loosen, creating a “bat-wing” effect. This issue can be embarrassing and prevent you from wearing short sleeved or sleeveless tops.
Targeted exercises build muscle and tone the upper arm, but cannot reduce the amount of accumulated fat and excess skin. An arm lift tightens and contours the upper arm, leaving a thinner arm with greater definition.
There is a huge boost in confidence in Dr. Dabbah’s patients following an arm lift. The contoured and slimmer arm gives them a sense of freedom to wear the clothes they want, to raise their arms without the excess skin, or place their arms against their side without a flattening of the arm against their body.

What Is an Arm Lift in Boca Raton, FL?
There is no amount of exercise that will help arms with excessive laxity of the skin, with or without fat and an arm lift is the ideal procedure to help with this. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is the surgery to remove the draping of the upper arm skin. Dr. Dabbah addresses the arm by removing the accumulated fat and excess skin. The result is a toned, slim upper arm.
Dr. Dabbah's Approach to Arm Lift Surgery
Dr. Dabbah determines the best placement of the scar, excising the skin and fat from the armpit to the elbow. Through these incisions, Dr. Dabbah will remove excess skin and fat and shape the arms. He will close the incisions using dissolvable sutures and surgical glue and tape.
Patients who have excess skin and fat under their armpits extending to their back can opt to have it removed, resulting in a brachioplasty scar extending through the armpit to their back. While the scar is long and the recovery is long, the patients are thrilled with the results.
Dr. Dabbah performs the arm lift as an outpatient under general anesthesia. Generally, an arm lift requires three hours in the operating room and you may go home with drains.
