Arm Lift

An arm lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the under portion of your upper arms. During an arm lift — also known as brachioplasty — excess skin and fat are removed from between the armpit and elbow.

Why Choose An Arm Lift?

With age, exercise and fluctuation in weight the skin on our arms can become loose or flabby, often leading to what some refer to as “flags” or “bat wings”. During the aging process our arm skin loses elasticity and begins to sag or dangle. Loose or dangling arm skin can be the cause of body insecurity; even the thought of wearing a simple arm-exposing t-shirt can cause anxiety. An arm lift addresses all concerns of excess hanging or loose skin and sagging skin on the arms, reduces arm size and shape and creates a smooth and even contour.

Excess skin can have a huge impact on the way you feel about yourself, and it can influence basic everyday decisions such as what to wear in the morning.

Perfecting Your Shape

It’s common to feel your underarm shape dropping as you age due to the changes in elasticity of the skin as we get older. Choosing an arm lift will allow you to restore your youthful, natural arm shape and definition.

Scar Minimizing

We utilize a number of techniques for removing excess arm skin and minimizing scarring. Each technique depends on how much skin exists for removal and where the incisions should be made. You will be advised of the procedure that will bring the best results for you.

Kind Words From Happy Patients

We are so privileged to have been able to look after so many patients that are thrilled with their results.

I went here for chin and neck liposuction and it's only a week post operation but the results are already so dramatic in my opinion and look amazing. My double chin definitely was not huge or anything and I have gotten so used to sticking out my jaw in a way where often you can't even notice it but it was a huge problem for me. With that said when I went in for my consultation, Dr. Wali at first was very hesitant and basically telling me he wouldn't do it since I don't have enough extra fat there for this to make sense until I finally was able to relax and my natural chin appeared. But I appreciate a lot that he will keep it real and not be willing to do surgeries that aren't necessary or wouldn't be beneficial enough! But a week later and all the fat is gone, with the easiest recovery imaginable and the results are better than I could've dreamed possible. Dr. Wali was very patient with me as well throughout the procedure especially with my borderline phobia of needles and so nice and calming throughout the whole process. Everyone that works there is so genuinely kind and welcoming and provide the best experience. I couldn't be happier with my experience or results and highly recommend.

After looking around for several months, I chose Dr. Wali because of his personality. He was very kind, realistic, and knew what I wanted to achieve and understood my worries (such as dimples or ripples ) Staff was super nice, and the price was reasonable, and then after everything and almost a year and half later I'm SUPER happy with my results, just remember fat has to go somewhere since it can't go where you had lipo and no matter how much lipo you have you need to be active and live a healthy lifestyle for the BEST results. I did it because I was frustrated with that stubborn baby fat. All in all I would recommend Dr Dev Wali to anyone who's done all they can and would just like a little help to bring sexy back lol

Tummy tuck results - is he a magician, artist or amazing surgeon? Most likely a combination of all three. I have been carrying around saggy belly skin for decades. I saw ads in magazines for his work and I finally stopped in his office one day. I am only sad I didn't do it twenty years earlier. His front office staff was kind and welcoming with every single visit. His back office staff were caring and compassionate. The doctor himself was patient to answer all my questions and make me feel comfortable. I have never had any prior surgery, except for wisdom teeth so this was a big deal. I am so happy with the miraculous and natural looking results. 🙂

My husband recently had a procedure done and we are very pleased with the outcome! We were both referred to Dr. Wali by some of our coworkers. He is known for his great work in reconstruction and is very meticulous. At the Pre-op appointment, Dr. Wali was on time, he was very honest and informative in what to expect before and after surgery. He is very clear on what and what not to do in order for a successful outcome. My husband had his surgery at Pomona Hospital's outpatient pavilion which was a pleasant experience from start to finish. The nurses, anesthesiologist were all wonderful there. The staff at Dr. Wali's office are very kind and helped with the disability online forms. I can tell my husband is very satisfied with how everything turned out. I definitely recommend Dr. Wali! He is very dedicated, professional and is excellent at what he does.

I had a tummy tuck with muscle repair and breast augmentation with Dr. Wali and am beyond happy with my results even being less than 2 weeks post op. His staff consists of some amazing women who are always professional and genuinely helpful. I always feel like they listen and understand my concerns and are always happy to answer my questions and I don't feel intimidated walking into the office. Dr. Wali is an incredible surgeon and I've recommended him to a lot of my family and friends who are on the fence about plastic surgery. He really took the time to explain the procedures I was having and how they would affect my body. He listened to what I want and didn't want in terms of my breast augmentation and I'm honestly so obsessed with my breasts now! Don't even get me started on how amazing and natural my belly button looks. I'm so grateful to have been able to have my surgery with Dr. Wali and to have his staff, especially Tanya, there for me to answer all of my questions pre and post op.

After weight loss, this 55 year old WANTED the arms gone! Gone they are. The scar is so thin it is barely noticeable! Had my upper lids done as well. 5 weeks post operation and the scars need to be hunted for. I seldom recommend doctors but I highly recommend Dr. Wali. AWESOME. I am coming to do a mini lift as well. I am that pleased!

Went to Dr. Wali for a tummy tuck and I couldn't be happier with my results. I'm only 3 weeks post op and there is still a lot of swelling but he did an amazing job. He is so detail-orientated and walked me through everything. He took his time during the consultation and answered all my questions. I love my belly button he created, trust me you will want to look into this during consultations. His offIce staff are very friendly . I will definitely be going back to him in the future.

Dr Wali is amazing! After two c-sections and losing 50 lbs I decided to get a tummy tuck to get rid of the excess skin. I had my tummy tuck done about 3 weeks ago and I couldn't be happier with the results so far. I have already received so many compliments. Dr Wali has given me a confidence that I will forever be grateful for.

I had consultations with 2 other surgeons. Dr Wali made me feel the most comfortable. He answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease. I did not feel rushed at all. His staff was also extremely helpful and welcoming. Definitely recommended.


During your consultation, Dr. Wali will discuss the different options and techniques used for anesthesia, and the type of anesthesia used will depend on the extent of the surgery. For those with excess fat on the arms, the surgery will begin with liposuction to remove the necessary excess fat cells. Dr. Wali removes the fat from the arms and carefully sculpts the area before he moves on to the next stage of the procedure which is the actual arm lift surgery.

The day prior to the day of surgery Dr. Wali will assess where to mark the arms for incision. Incisions will be made at the underarms or along the inside of the upper arms and any options and preferences will be discussed during the pre-surgery appointment. After the liposculpture is completed Dr. Wali uses the markings made prior to surgery, to remove excess skin. The skin is then re-draped and closed. Dr. Wali applies a multi-layered technique to close the skin in order to minimize scarring and ensure that the scar is as thin and invisible as possible. Dr. Wali and his team will apply a compression garment to the arms at the completion of surgery and direct you on how to remove it every 4 hours until your first visit back to the facility.

Following your procedure, you will experience moderate pain and discomfort typically associated with surgery. It is important to take the medication prescribed and to follow the post-surgery instructions provided by Dr. Wali and his staff. You will be coached in-depth by the team prior to surgery but should expect walking around with assistance and limited use of arms after surgery. Rather than using your arms to lift yourself, focus on using your abdominal muscles to get up. On the day of surgery be sure to drink lots of fluids and advance your diet slowly. On the first day after surgery Dr. Wali will suggest that you walk around as much as possible and actively avoid lying in bed for prolonged periods of time so as not to become stiff and to promote blood flow throughout the body. Again, follow the instructions referring to the first day after surgery and remember to remove your compression garment every 4 hours while you are awake. During the next week you should be walking as much as possible. The office team will be checking in regularly during the first week to answer any questions and to check on your recovery. If you feel any need to call outside of regular check-up, please feel free to call the office with any questions or concerns.
