For smoother, tighter contours of the upper arm, patients may consider a procedure known as brachioplasty, or an arm lift. This procedure removes excess skin and fat along the underside of the arm, as well as the space between the armpit and elbow. At our facility, we work to re-contour the arm and to reveal smoother skin for a more toned appearance.
Albany, NY patients should understand the importance of working with a trained professional known for an artistic eye and precision. As an aesthetic surgeons, Dr. DeLuca and Dr. Tauber have worked with thousands of patients, helping men and women achieve the look they want. Our office works to help patients work toward the most natural appearance, and strives to minimize scarring. Some reasons you should choose DeLuca Plastic Surgery:
Before surgery, you may take medications to relax. Depending on your health and risk profile, sedation or general anesthesia will be used for the duration of the surgery. Incisions will be made along the inside or back of the arm. These incisions will provide sufficient access for the removal of excess fat using liposuction techniques. Depending on how much skin will be removed, there may be minimal or extensive incisions. Sutures are typically taken out after one or two weeks.
With this type of body lift surgery, it usually takes between two to three hours to complete both arms. It is recommended that you take two to three days of bed rest immediately following the procedure. Patients should not over extend their arms until sutures are removed, so help is necessary for the first couple of weeks.
Because every surgical plan is different, costs vary from patient to patient.Financing plans are available should you choose to finance your surgery.

I previously weighed 300 pounds and after losing 140 lbs my arms were left with “bat wings”. These were depressing and I could not wear any short sleeved shirts because the skin would hang out from under the sleeve. I was very self conscious of these.
When I met with Dr. DeLuca I immediately felt comfortable with him. He was professional and listened with COMPASSION to my concerns. I felt like I had known him for a long time! He explained everything about the surgery in detail and gave me plenty of time to ask questions. I was NEVER pressured into anything.
My surgery was uneventful (complication-free). During my recovery I called with a question and my phone call was returned promptly! The office staff is professional and friendly.
My arms look absolutely beautiful! Dr. DeLuca has a special gift… most people don’t even notice the scars and my tattoos are perfectly placed in the center of both my arms! I am BEYOND happy with the outcome… he far exceeded my expectations!
As an RN- I would recommend Dr. DeLuca by far to anyone. I will be back to have my belly procedure this fall!*
