About Arm Lifts
Reveal a sleek, well-contoured upper arm with an arm lift by one of our board-certified plastic surgeons at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa. We can provide you with a variety of advanced cosmetic surgery techniques to remove excess skin and fat deposits from your upper arms with an arm lift. Regardless of how your skin lost its elasticity (aging, weight loss, or genetics), we have a surgical solution when diet and exercise do not produce the results you want to see in the mirror. At our AAAASF-accredited surgical facility in Delray Beach, FL we create natural-looking improvements and remove "bat wings" from the upper arms so you can feel confident in anything you wear, sleeveless or not!
"Dr. Schnitt is one of the few doctors who truly provides the quality of care I expect. His front office assistant (Kristin) was highly professional and very caring. Dr. Schnitt took his time to examine my son and explain everything in detail. He was extremely patient and totally thorough. I was able to contact him directly, before and after surgery. He did an amazing job fixing my son's broken nose. I am deeply grateful and I highly recommend him. JG"- D.G. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2017
"Absolutely THE BEST experience and results throughout the state of Florida. I have been getting Botox and fillers since 2007 and my experience here was THE BEST EVER. I have always gone to highly reputable plastic surgeons for my injections but none (from Naples, Tallahassee, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, or even Palm Beach Gardens) compares to my experience AND results from Inspire. Cindy and Katie are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Supreme expertise by both of them. I love how they work as a team to make sure you look your absolute best! Not only that, but Katie was so gentle that you barely feel the injections!! I was fortunate enough to met Dr. Goodwin as well, and he's extremely nice with an amazing bedside manner. He took the time to give me a quick consultation even. I'll be seeing him in 2 weeks. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY GOING ANY PLACE ELSE BUT HERE!! Trust me! I have wasted thousands of dollars on sub-par treatments from some of the supposedly "best plastic surgery centers". Again, none compare to Inspire!!!! I must also mention the office is incredible!!!! Absolutely gorgeous and immaculate. Everyone is extremely nice, highly professional, and beautiful ! Even from the first phone call, you get phenomenal customer service!!! Cindy is the first person to tell me to stop taking certain supplements before coming in for injections. No other office has ever told me that! She also told me to buy Arnica pellets and start taking them before my appt. Amazing facility in every way!!!!!"- M.M. / Google / Aug 18, 2018

"I met Dr. Schnitt about 8 years ago when he repaired my daughter’s cleft lip. Awesome human being and plastic surgeon is an understatement for this doctor. He went above and beyond. My daughter looks amazing. I was recently researching Palm Beach plastic surgeons for myself. When I saw his name I knew I would be in great hands. He did a great job and his office staff was so friendly and welcoming. I will confidently refer him to everyone I know."- M.F. / Google / Aug 06, 2018
"Dr. Drew is amazing. He listens intently and makes you feel important and beautiful. I wouldn't go anywhere else."- C.G. / Google / Jul 27, 2018
The best candidates for an arm lift procedure are men or women who have loose and hanging skin from the underside of the upper arm. This skin keeps these individuals from wearing short sleeves or fitted clothing. Patients must be at or near their goal weight, and their weight should be stable. This surgery is not reserved for weight loss patients alone. Patients who are in good health and wish to have their arms toned and tightened may also consider this procedure.
What to Expect
The goal of an arm lift is to remove excess skin and reveal a toned upper arm. Our plastic surgeon will evaluate your skin quality and elasticity and determine how much fat, tissue and skin should be removed to attain the results you desire. The length of the incision made during surgery will vary. For example, patients who have healthy skin tone may only require a minor incision. Massive weight loss patients who present with excessively loose and hanging skin will require a more extensive approach. During surgery, the excess skin is trimmed and removed, and the underlying muscles are tightened. An armpit lift is sometimes incorporated during this procedure for patients who have additional skin and fat deposits within the armpit.
Swelling is expected after arm lift surgery, although the amount of swelling varies among patients. The swelling starts to subside during the first 1-2 weeks after surgery. A compression garment or sleeve will usually be recommended to control this swelling and to keep the skin and tissue firmly protected. Most patients can resume moderate arm activity in 3-4 weeks, with a complete recovery about 4-6 weeks after the surgery. While all surgical procedures will leave some scarring, the incision resides under the arm so that it is not as noticeable. The surgeon will provide a scar treatment plan to help the incision(s) heal in a healthy and quick manner.
