Very skilled plastic surgeon. I had a great experience with Dr. Schaffner and his team. I felt at ease going into the surgery and everything went perfect. I always felt listened to and never rushed, which gave me even more confidence that he is the right surgeon for me. He followed up after the surgery and made sure I was recovering well. I highly recommend him. LOVE my results! ~ Google

Please note: When you consider this plastic surgery procedure, both arms are operated on so you will need assistance for the first few days after your Arm Lift surgery – during the recovery process until you become independent and able to comfortably use your arms.

  • For NYC Arm Lift Plastic Surgeon, Adam Schaffner MD, FACS’ patients – women or men – with a relatively mild amount of fat content in the posterior part of the arm (the fat that hangs below the arm when the arm is stretched out straight -without significant excess of skin), significant improvement can oftentimes be achieved with Liposuction alone as opposed to a traditional Arm Lift Surgery / “Brachioplasty”. The Plastic Surgeon will discuss the Liposuction Arm Lift Surgery option with you during your consultation
  • For patients with a significant amount of loose skin on their arms and fat accumulation, the best surgical solution is to have a tradition Arm Lift Surgery / “Brachioplasty”  along with liposuction.

Arm Lift Plastic Surgery tends to be a very common surgical procedure sought out by patients who have dedicated themselves to achieving a significant amount of weight loss and as a result have loose hanging skin on their under-arm. Massive weight loss tends to be common in patients that have undergone bariatric surgery such as gastric bypass or laparoscopic band surgery. As a result of the patient’s significant weight loss, there is a significant amount of loose arm skin. With this type of weight loss, the loose or sagging skin is removed surgically by the NYC Plastic Surgeon, Adam Schaffner, MD, FACS from the elbow up to the armpit. On occasion, additional tissue is taken beyond this area. This is a more extensive procedure but results in a great patient satisfaction.

The NYC Arm Lift Plastic Surgeon – Dr. Adam Schaffner will examine you during your Arm Lift Surgery consultation and discuss your various  surgical options with you. Every effort is made to minimize scarring and yield an optimal result.

The results from Arm Lift Surgery are permanent provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness, but most of your improvement are immediately apparent and will be appreciated for many years to come.
