Arm Lift

Too much arm fat or loose skin on your upper arms can cause your arms to appear disproportionately soft, rounded, and out of shape. An arm lift can contour and remove excess volume on your arms, leaving you with slim, sculpted, and youthful arms you'll love to show off.

What concerns can an arm lift correct?

When performed by an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Pellegrino, an arm lift will:
  • Correct any sagging arm skin
  • Sculpt excess arm fat
  • Remove hanging arm skin - also known as "bat wings" or "chicken wings"
  • Define arms after substantial weight loss, pregnancy, or aging

An overview of an arm lift

At your initial consultation, Dr. Pellegrino will discuss your expectations, perform a thorough evaluation of your arms, give you a comprehensive explanation on what to expect from the arm lift procedure. He will carefully evaluate your unique concerns and desired outcome, and make recommendations to ensure that you are fully satisfied with the result of your arm lift.

What to expect during recovery

An arm lift is a significant procedure, so allowing yourself the correct amount of time to recover is extremely important. As you recover, normal side effects consist of swelling, bruising, and pain in the area. Throughout the healing process, Dr. Pellegrino will advise you to avoid strenuous exercise or physical activity after your procedure to promote optimal healing. Dr. Pellegrino and his staff will offer a custom treatment plan and guidance for your individual recovery period throughout your post-operative follow-up appointments.

Is an arm lift right for you?

If you are considering an arm lift, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pellegrino for an expert's opinion on what procedure will be best for you. Generally, most men and women are candidates for an arm lift if sagging arm skin, loss of skin elasticity in the arms, or excessive stubborn fat are causing your arms to appear disproportionately large or soft. Additionally, candidates for this procedure should be healthy overall. It is important to have a realistic expectation of what an arm lift can accomplish. When performed by a seasoned plastic surgeon like Dr. Pellegrino, an arm lift can make a considerable difference in the appearance of your arms and body overall, however, individual results may vary based on a variety of factors.
