At our AAAASF-accredited surgical facilities in Fort Lauderdale and 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!
"This facility gets 10 stars from me!! My first experience with Inspire was for a pretty extensive cosmetic procedure that I was beyond nervous about- breast lift, reduction, and augmentation. At the age of only 29, my breasts were in very bad shape after losing a great deal of weight. However, Dr. Drew absolutely NAILED it!! I could not be happier with the outcome and am incredibly grateful for not only his expertise, but for how kind and supportive the entire staff was towards me throughout the process. If you are looking for an honest group of doctors to help improve yourself, this is the facility to check out! You will understand the second you walk in :)"- C.P. / Google / Jul 21, 2020

"I was very nervous about getting lips fillers, as it was my very first time getting any type of cosmetic "procedure" done. I had my lip fillers done by Chris... Not only is he great and passionate about what he does, he has a great comforting spirit/energy that made me feel safe and secure 🙂 And as far as Inspire Aesthetics as a whole, lovely place! Very modern, clean, and comfortable environment with a very friendly professional staff. Will definitely be returning for all future work ❤"- S.G. / Google / Jan 13, 2021

Best Candidates for Brachioplasty
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 from Brachioplasty
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.
