About Arm Lift Surgery
As a natural part of aging or from losing a significant amount of weight, you may experience excess, loose skin. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we offer arm lift surgery for patients who have difficulty toning and tightening their arms with diet and exercise. Also known as a brachioplasty, an arm lift removes excess skin from the elbow to the upper arm and tightens the remaining tissue. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is experienced at performing skin tightening and fat removal procedures. If you want to learn more about brachioplasty, please call us and schedule a consultation at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery.
"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

Is An Arm Lift Right For You?
An upper arm lift uses innovative techniques to slim and excise excess skin. If you feel self-conscious about excess skin on your arms, and you prefer them to look trim and contoured, you are a great candidate for an arm lift. Before undergoing surgery, you should be in good health and near a stable weight. One of the most common symptoms for arm lift candidates includes hanging skin on the upper arms. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will assess your condition and develop a detailed treatment plan that aligns with your goals.
We will perform your procedure in one of our private, AAAHC-accredited operating rooms. Depending on your needs, we can combine an arm lift with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck, mommy makeover, or thigh lift. If we combine multiple procedures, you may require an inpatient stay for additional monitoring. Usually, an arm lift is done with general anesthesia and takes a few hours to complete. We begin your procedure by excising the excess skin from your elbow to the underarm. As we make the incision, we will try and conceal it as much as we can; however, you will have a visible scar. In some cases, patients may also need liposuction to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. If needed, we will perform liposuction before tightening the remaining skin. After the skin is pulled tight, Dr. Mang places the sutures. You will need to care for the incisions by keeping them sanitized, covered, and wrapped with compression garments.
What to Expect
Typically, you need about two weeks of recovery time. The most important thing is to rest with lots of arm elevation. You use your arms for more than you think so you should ease your way back into normal activities. Ten days after surgery, we will remove the sutures at a follow-up appointment. Until you receive permission from Dr. Mang, you will need to wear compression garments. For at least a month, patients should avoid all strenuous activity. However, to help with healing, you will need to incorporate short walks into your routine. If you experience excessive swelling, uncontrolled bleeding, fluid retention, infection, numbness in the hands or arms, or heavy scarring, please contact Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery for assistance.
Get Back Your Shape
Weight loss and aging can cause droopy skin underneath the arms. To combat this issue, Dr. Mang is proud to offer arm lift surgery, which can help improve your confidence. During your consultation, we will create a treatment plan that aligns with your cosmetic needs. To help you get the results you want, we accept several payment options. Instead of selecting a doctor based on cost, our payment plans can help you choose an experienced doctor, like Dr. Mang. We will also provide information on low-interest financing. If you are close to a healthy weight but still have issues getting rid of excess skin or stubborn fat, please call to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Mang at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL. Look and feel better with arm lift surgery.
