About Arm Lift Surgery
A frustrating side effect of losing weight or getting older is dealing with loose skin. At our Baltimore, MD facility, Dr. Ben Schultz, ABPS Certified, offers arm lift surgery (or brachioplasty) as an option for people who cannot seem to tighten and tone their arms through exercise and diet. Lax skin from the elbow to the shoulder is very common, particularly for people who are advancing in age or have lost weight. Arm lift surgery effectively excises this loose, hanging skin, commonly called "bat wings." Dr. Schultz is very experienced in skin tightening and fat removal surgeries. If you would like to hear more information about how brachioplasty can enhance the appearance of your upper arms, please contact us for a consultation.
"How do I even begin to say how wonderful Dr. Ben Schultz is … he is simply the best physician/surgeon I’ve ever encountered! He is extremely knowledgeable, cares deeply about his patients, and has an impeccable bedside manner! He provided excellent care before, during, and after my nasal surgery. He is very attentive and always answered all of my questions. I know he has several patients, but he made me feel like I was his only one! I had a few complications after the surgery and he was very accommodating and understanding. It's rare to find a physician so caring and concerned about my health!"- K.W. / Google / Jun 02, 2023
"Right from the beginning I knew I would be in good hands with Dr. Ben. I was really nervous about my surgery but he put my mind at ease. From initially meeting him he was friendly, compassionate and easy to talk to. He was very thorough and answered any concerns I had. You can tell he truly cares for his patients. He would always check up on me to see how I was doing and was available when I needed him. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me. Dr.Ben is truly an amazing surgeon!"- E.H. / Google / Apr 17, 2023
"Wow...where should I start??!! I was diagnosed with breast cancer July of 2022. My GYN referred me to Drs. Ben and Michael Schultz (I will leave a separate review for Dr. Michael). From the time of my first consultation until today, Dr. Ben has been a God send. He is meticulous, and set realistic expectations. He texted me daily after my surgery to ensure I was feeling ok and healing properly. He did an amazing job on my reconstruction. EVERY doctor and staff person that has seen my results say, "Wow, your surgeon did an amazing job!" I usually question EVERYTHING I am told. However, he provided information in a way that was clear and concise. and.... best of all... his work proved exactly what he said he was going to do. Thanks Dr. Ben! ~Chevel God Speed!"- C.V. / Google / Apr 07, 2023
"Dr. Ben is amazing at what he does. And, amazingly, he gets back to me immediately with every question and concern. He always has a smile on his face to put you at ease. He and his father are the kindest doctors I’ve ever dealt with."- R.L. / Google / Mar 24, 2023
"Dr Ben, I can’t even put in words how appreciative I am of this man. I’ve been wanting a reduction for over 8 years now, I was at the point where the size literally weighed me down. He sympathized with me so much immediately and set himself apart from other surgeons I’ve met with by not downplaying my pain. I was so nervous about my surgery but he reassured me at every single step, he gave me his personal number for any post op questions which made me feel even better about choosing him. Every time I had a question, I waited no more than 30 mins for a response which was surprising given the amount of patients I’ve met at his practice. As a black woman, anything dealing with medical professionals is scary but Dr. Ben is the best I’ve ever interacted with. He restored my confidence in my body, went from a 36H to about a D cup. I have had absolutely no complications with my surgery, I felt like I was back to myself about 3-4 weeks post op. Thank you so much Dr. Ben! May God bless you infinitely"- M.M. / Google / Mar 18, 2023
How is an arm lift performed?
In most cases, your upper arm lift surgery will take place in an outpatient setting. An arm lift can be done with other procedures, including a mommy makeover, tummy tuck, or thigh lift — if Dr. Schultz considers it safe. Arm lift surgery is usually done with the patient under general anesthesia and may take a few hours to complete. The excess skin will be surgically excised starting at the elbow up to the armpit. The incision will be placed as inconspicuously as possible, although it will most likely leave a visible scar. If liposuction is needed to remove stubborn fat, this can be performed as well. After the skin is pulled taut, it will be sutured together. You will have to care for the incisions by keeping them sanitized, covered, and wrapped with compression garments. Our team will also provide any necessary aftercare instructions.
