Arm Lift in Draper, UT

One big challenge when losing weight or getting older is dealing with loose, excess skin. At Maglic Plastic Surgery, we offer arm lift surgery (also called brachioplasty) as an option for patients who have struggled to get tighter, toned arms with exercise alone. Excess skin from the elbow to the upper arm is very typical, especially for men and women who have lost weight or are advancing in age. Arm lift surgery effectively excises this unwanted skin, sometimes known as "bat wings." Dr. Dino Maglic, a plastic surgeon in Draper, UT, has extensive experience in fat removal and skin tightening methods. If you would like to hear more information about how brachioplasty can alter the shape of your arms, please schedule a consultation at Maglic Plastic Surgery.

Arm lift surgery is performed at our Draper, UT facility and may be combined with other procedures, like a mommy makeover, tummy tuck, or thigh lift (based on your goals and health). At Maglic Plastic Surgery, we use an advanced arm lift technique known as avulsion brachioplasty, which combines VASER® ultrasound-assisted liposuction with skin excision to create a more contoured appearance with little to no scarring. Once you're sedated, Dr. Maglic will inject a special saline solution into the treatment area before inserting the VASER® liposuction probes, which will break down unwanted fat using ultrasound energy. After removing the fat, he will carefully remove any excess skin from the elbow up to the armpit. Depending on your goals and the amount of loose skin on your arms, we may also perform nonsurgical skin tightening using the Renuvion® system, which utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to firm up the skin while boosting collagen production for long-term tightening effects.

Arm lift surgery is a popular procedure at Maglic Plastic Surgery due to its many benefits, which include:

  • Suitable for areas affected by stubborn fat
  • Less friction, tenderness, and pain between the upper body and underarms
  • Greater self-esteem and comfort when picking out clothes
  • Removal of loose skin caused by substantial weight loss or getting older

No matter what you call your droopy skin or "bat wings" on your upper arms, Dr. Maglic and our team at Maglic Plastic Surgery see it as a way to change your life with cosmetic surgery. This exciting procedure provides emotional and physical benefits, as well as a tighter overall appearance. If you are at or close to your goal weight and still can't eliminate the flab and skin that hang from your arms, please reach out to schedule a consultation with Dr. Maglic at our Draper, UT practice. Feel younger and fitter with arm lift surgery.

My experience with Premier Plastic Surgery and Dr. Maglic was positive from the very first visit. I had a much-needed arm lift after losing 100 pounds almost 20 years earlier. Dr. Maglic was very clear and forthcoming on the process and I felt really well prepared. The staff there at Premier was so responsive and friendly and supportive. I just couldn’t be happier with how my arms turned out! Dr. Maglic truly cares about the quality of his work. So so happy I found their office, and so glad I did it! Highly recommend!!!
