What Is an Arm Lift?

Published on February 17, 2017

Excess skin on the upper arms can be caused by significant changes in body weight, age, or genetics. It can be a frustrating situation to deal, especially when the skin hangs to such a degree that it forms an unsightly phenomenon known as bat wings.

Many people who struggle with the onset of bat wings often feel insecure about their appearance and lack confidence. If this sounds like you, a plastic surgery procedure known as the arm lift may be your answer.

An arm lift is a procedure that can be used to eliminate excess skin on the upper arms. During the procedure, your surgeon will make the necessary incisions in order to remove the excess skin and fat causing the problems. After the procedure, your arms will be more toned and pleasing to look at.

As an excellent board-certified plastic surgeon and a specialist in face and body procedures, Dr. Deborah White is dedicated to providing the best results possible for every patient. Contact our office to arrange a consultation, where the two of you can speak about the surgery and develop a personalized plan to get the arms you desire.

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
