Male Arm lift (Brachioplasty)
Dr. Kaplan has extensive experience performing male arm lifts as well as numerous other types of surgeries. In addition to his considerable skill and talent, which yields excellent results for his patients, he is also understanding and listens carefully to your wishes and hopes for your surgery.
One of the side effects of losing a significant amount of weight is loose skin that no amount of exercise can fix. For many people, one area where this is typically very apparent is right under the arm. If you are a male and are troubled by loose skin caused by weight loss or aging, a male arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, may be the best solution.

Preparing for Your Male Arm Lift with Fort Lauderdale Surgeon Dr. Kaplan
Once your male arm lift is scheduled, Dr. Kaplan will review your pre- and post-op self-care instructions with you. These instructions are extremely important and should be followed carefully to ensure the best results and fastest healing with the lowest risk of complications.
Fort Lauderdale surgeon Dr. Kaplan will also need to review any medications you are taking. Some medications can increase your risk of bleeding and bruising both before and after your male arm lift. Dr. Kaplan will make any necessary changes and will prescribe additional medications needed to reduce discomfort and swelling following your male arm lift. These medications can be picked up at any Fort Lauderdale pharmacy.
The Male Arm Lift Procedure
Fort Lauderdale surgeon Dr. Kaplan will begin your male arm lift by making an incision. Depending on the amount of tissue that needs to be removed, your incision may be located along your inner arm, along the back of your arm or in your armpit. Dr. Kaplan will be careful to keep your incision as small and unnoticeable as possible.
Working through your incision, Dr. Kaplan will remove excess fatty tissue, reposition other tissues to a more aesthetically pleasing location and trim away excess skin. Absorbable sutures may be used to hold tissues in place. Once this is complete, your skin will be redraped over your new arm contours and closed with sutures.
Following Your Male Arm Lift
In the days and weeks following your male arm lift, you will need to return to our Fort Lauderdale office for follow-up appointments so Dr. Kaplan can check your progress, make sure you are healing well and remove your sutures, if necessary.
Get plenty of rest in the days following your male arm lift. Take your medications as prescribed to keep discomfort and swelling to a minimum. Clean your incisions as instructed by Fort Lauderdale surgeon Dr. Kaplan to prevent infection.
It will take time for the swelling to recede and for your true results to become apparent. Follow Dr. Kaplan’s instructions for returning to a normal level of activity; don’t try to rush the process. It’s important to give your new arm contours time to properly heal.
