Arm Lift Scottsdale

Excess skin on the upper arms can be a huge source of frustration for patients.  Often they have to adjust their shirt sizes upwards just to accommodate the skin and tissues.  Because of the location of the necessary incisions, this can be a real trade-off of shape for scars.  Many patients scar well enough that the incisions eventually (after many months to a year or two) become difficult to see.  The traditional arm lifts removed an ellipse of skin from the elbow to the armpit, leaving a scar in the middle of the arm.  Now we frequently extend the scar to the bottom of the armpit in order to include tightening of armpit area as well as secondarily removing most of the hair, sweat glands and scent glands in the area.  We now also typically locate the scar 2/3’s of the way down the arm from top to bottom to better conceal it under the curve and shadow of the arm.  As with any of these surgeries, Dr. White works with the patient to help decide which scar or surgery best accomplishes the patient’s goals.

If the chest is loose as well, we can extend the incision along the side of the chest down to the fold under the breasts.  This would be called an EXTENDED BRACHIOPLASTY (arm lift plus chest lift)

To Our Valued Patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your loved ones in good health. Per directives by the Governor and HonorHealth we will be restarting surgery and several in-office procedures, while following new protocols to decrease the risk of transmission of any illness.

FOR SURGERIES AT THE OUTPATIENT CENTER: All patients MUST be covid negative. The hospital will coordinate the testing which must be done 2 days before your surgery and will be at NO COST to you.

We have decided to begin with our younger, lower risk patients having shorter surgeries for the first couple of weeks. Preops will of course be in person.

FOR CONSULTS AND BOTOX AND IN-OFFICE PROCEDURES: All patients must be screened for exposure to coronavirus (questionnaire) and have no symptoms or fever. We will not be doing any procedures around the mouth for the first few weeks. Patients MUST wear MASKS.

You will see some changes to our office procedures:

We are really looking forward to seeing everyone again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you and our staff safe in our practice! To make an appointment please call 480-614-3535 or visit our website at
