Arm Lift for Men in Manhattan, NYC
If you’ve put on excess weight around your upper arms and now have “bat wings” in place of toned muscles, a male arm lift performed by board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. may be able to resolve these issues and give you the stronger-looking physique you’ve always wanted.
What Is an Arm Lift for Men?
Brachioplasty, more commonly known as arm lift surgery, involves the removal of excess skin and fat tissue from the underside of the arms. After the procedure, you can expect a more chiseled look that draws attention to existing muscle mass. An arm lift for men is the fastest way to achieve a trimmer, sexier physique.

Arm Lift for Men Before and After
We proudly maintain an extensive catalog of past cosmetic surgeries, and we encourage you to have a look at the results that Dr. Swift achieves on a regular basis. However, not all results are typical. Your results will depend on a number of factors, and you will have a much clearer idea of what to expect once you have consulted with Dr. Swift.
How is an Arm Lift for Men Performed?
Brachioplasty is typically performed after significant weight loss to remove excess skin. When you force a sudden calorie deficit on the body, the body may respond by cannibalizing muscle tissue. Naturally, this means that the existing skin no longer sits on the body as it once did. Genetics, age, and skin elasticity are primary factors. Dr. Swift will consult with you to determine how much tissue to remove. The doctor will answer any questions that you have at this time, including any questions about local anesthesia.
During the procedure, medical personnel will give you a local anesthetic to prevent discomfort. Dr. Swift will then use a cosmetic marker to note problem areas. He will then make small incisions in the areas indicated, removing excess tissue. However, whenever possible, Dr. Swift will make incisions near the armpit to minimize visible scarring. The incisions are then closed and bandaged. As the body heals, your skin will naturally tighten.
Preparing for an Arm Lift For Men
An arm lift is major surgery and appropriate preparation is needed. You will be instructed to avoid smoking, blood thinning medications, and all aspirin, aspirin-containing products, and anti-inflammatory products at least 10 days before surgery. You will need a friend or family member to escort you home after the procedure. You should plan to have some help with household chores, such as cooking and cleaning, as these activities are fairly difficult in the immediate postoperative period. Get plenty of rest and dress in comfortable layered clothing.
Arm Lift for Men Recovery
You may experience minor scarring where the incisions are made, but these should fade with time. During recovery, it is crucial that you keep arm movement to a minimum. Avoiding strenuous activity will ensure that the incisions remain closed while they heal. You may feel discomfort during this process.
Dr. Swift will show you how to care for your incisions. You will likely receive self-dissolving sutures, in which case you will just need to keep the area clean. A few days after the procedure, you should be able to resume sedentary activities such as watching TV and using the computer. After two weeks, you can resume exercise. If you experience any discomfort, your doctor will prescribe a pain reliever.
Is an Arm Lift for Men Right for Me?
Candidates for an arm lift typically have significant excess skin due to extreme and rapid weight loss. However, individuals with fat pockets in the upper-arm region are also candidates. If fat pockets are your primary concern, liposuction might be a more cost-effective option. Dr. Swift can determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure, so don’t hesitate to arrange a consultation.
How Much Does an Arm Lift for Men Cost?
Costs for your arm lift will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
