If you’re considering an arm lift…

See your procedure in 3dAn arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow, reshapes your arm to result in smoother skin and contours, and results in a more toned and proportionate appearance. The procedure is performed to:

  • Reduce excess sagging skin that droops downward
  • Tighten and smooth the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
  • Reduce localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

Where Your Surgery Will Be Performed

Your operation may take place in an office-based facility, a freestanding surgical center or a hospital outpatient facility. Sometimes Dr. Beals may require that you stay overnight. In such instances, the Paradise Valley Overnight Recovery Center is available for patients to have round-the-clock care post-operatively in a comfortable setting next to the Surgery Center.
