Do you hide your arms under sleeves even during the hottest days of summer? Saggy or droopy upper arms can impact your confidence and comfort. If you are unhappy with the tone and firmness of your upper arm skin and tissue, brachioplasty (arm lift surgery) may be the solution. HMS Plastic Surgery performs arm skin tightening procedures at our plastic surgery center in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL, area.

Often called “bat wings,” the sagging skin on the upper arms can be an embarrassing trait. Not only does the swinging skin affect body appearance when the arms are bare, but it can impact how clothing fits on the arms. Brachioplasty is a body contouring procedure that can remove the excess skin and fatty tissue to create firmer, youthful upper arms for improved appearance with and without sleeves.

Dr. Harry Salinas at HMS Plastic Surgery is a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in reshaping the body. His expertise has helped many patients feel more confident in their bodies, transforming and reshaping the skin and other tissues. If you have “bat wings” hanging from your upper arms, he can provide contouring through plastic surgery to create a svelte, slimmer appearance.

Upper Arm Reshaping

Brachioplasty, or arm lift surgery, usually involves removing excess skin, but also may require liposuction if there is fatty tissue that needs to be extracted. Dr. Salinas can use various methods to achieve the desired upper arm appearance. The incision location and length depend on the amount of tissue and skin that needs to be removed. Minimal skin removal with tightening can usually be performed with a small incision near the armpit. More intensive arm lifts and liposuction may require a longer incision along the underside of the upper arm.

Brachioplasty can be a transforming procedure that can help you feel more confident about your body. If you are ready to explore options for reshaping and tightening your arms, contact us at HMS Plastic Surgery. Call our plastic surgery center in Miami, FL, to schedule an arm lift surgery consultation with Dr. Harry Salinas and say goodbye to your “bat wings.”

My oncologist recommended Dr. Salinas for my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction and I couldn’t be more grateful. He is not only an excellent professional but also a very kind human being.

Dr. Harry Salinas is an absolutely amazing doctor! I am a petite woman and due to menopause, my breast became very large affecting my back, neck and shoulders. Dr. Salinas performed a breast reduction and breast lift surgeon. Dr. Salinas invested a significant amount of time explaining the procedure. He was incredibly accommodating as regards to my schedule. He and his staff were always available for prompt follow up on any questions. The results were far beyond my expectations. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the procedure. Dr. Salinas has changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Salinas for his skill, professionalism, kindness and good heart!
