Weight loss and aging can cause the tissue of the upper arms to become lax. Unfortunately, diet and exercise often have no effect. An arm lift is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess fat and skin from the upper arms, making them firmer and removing that "bat wing" look.*
While this procedure is performed on both men and women, especially forpost-weight loss (bariatric) surgery, it is a particularly common complaint among women. All of our surgeons have performed many successful arm lifts, making it possible for our patients to feel comfortable and confident when baring their arms.
We believe you need to be well informed about arm lift surgery so that you can make an informed decision about your procedure and your surgeon. This includes the process of preparing for the surgery and the recovery period. One of our surgeons will meet with you about your concerns and personal goals. The doctor will examine you and tell you what they can accomplish for you. They will also advise you what the arm lift will involve in terms specific to your case.
Choosing a surgeon is an intensely personal decision. We encourage you to ask questions of our team. We want you to feel comfortable with us and your decision to have surgery at The Waldorf Center.

The incision for an arm lift is usually made on the inside, or the posterior part, of the upper arm, where it will remain hidden. Liposuction is used to suction out any excess fatty tissue, and the loose skin is trimmed, contouring the arm. The procedure is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia in our accredited surgery center.
The experienced surgeons at The Waldorf Center for Plastic Surgery are committed to educating patients and providing them with high-quality, ethical care. We believe that cosmetic surgery is as much an art as it is a science.Learn More
You should take one week off from work after your surgery and restrict your activity for four to six weeks. The recovery period involves some bruising, soreness, and swelling. You can take pain medication to manage any discomfort. Some mild residual swelling will remain for a few weeks to months.*
You will be fitted with a compression garment for six weeks, which will aid in swelling reduction and promote faster healing.
Our clinical staff will remove your sutures during a post-surgical examination and will monitor your progress carefully to make sure you are healing properly.
I was displeased with my breast size. We did the 3D Vectra imaging and Dr. Waldorf concluded that 220 or 255cc silicone implants would give me my desired results. Everything went extremely smoothly on the day of my surgery ... I was back to normal activity within 1-2 weeks. Overall it was an excellent experience!Learn More
From the very first visit, all my experiences with Dr. Waldorf have been great. I was always self-conscious of my small chest but never as much as after having 2 kids & nursing each of them for 1 year. I had no cleavage at all & finding a swimsuit that could conceal this was very difficult. I went from 32A to 32C which fits my body perfectly & looks very natural. The surgery & my recovery went very smooth & I'm very happy with the result.Learn More
