Procedure Match Tool

Welcome to Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery for an arm lift in NYC on Park Avenue.

Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms. Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani’s ultimate goal as a plastic surgeon is to deliver personalized care that not only enhances his patients’ physical appearance but also improves their overall well-being. An arm lift can leave you feeling more confident with more contoured upper arms.

A Slimmer Appearance

The arms are a common place for people to feel self-conscious about. You may hide your arms by only wearing clothing that covers them, which is less than ideal in warm weather or for special occasions.

It can also be a particular problem area for some whose weight gained accumulates more in their arms than other areas of the body.


With hard work, you can partially reduce fat in the upper arms, but you cannot get rid of excess skin through exercise. Excess skin can make it feel difficult to enjoy the results of your achievements. An arm lift in NYC at Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery is the perfect solution to get rid of both excess skin and fat in your upper arms to give you an overall more slender, sculpted look.

How it Works




You’ll visit our New York City office for a confidential consultation. Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani will listen to your concerns and goals for brachioplasty surgery, with his top priority to provide individualized care. Based on your goals, concerns, and examination, your surgeon will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to you.

We highly encourage you to ask questions during your arm lift consultation. Our team will walk you through every step of the procedure and recovery process so you can feel comfortable and confident in your decision.

Your procedure will take place at our luxurious in-office facility in Manhattan. The surgery process takes between 1 to 2 hours.

Your surgeon will liposuction the upper arm, then make an incision under the arm, near the axilla. This is to remove any loose or excess skin. This technique provides a lifted and tighter arm, with less of a “bat wing” appearance.

The recovery period is 1-4 weeks depending on the technique, and you cannot work out for 1 month after surgery.

Dr. Bassiri-Tehrani, our Patient Care Coordinator, and the rest of our team will be there to guide and support you throughout your post-surgery care. We will schedule follow-up appointments to assess your recovery and results.
