Men may decide to undergo a fat transfer to the shoulders and upper arms to create a more muscular and masculine body contour. By taking donor fat from a problem area (typically the stomach, love handles, or back) and injecting it into the shoulders and upper arms, men can achieve a broader upper body and slimmer midsection. This is why fat transfer to shoulders and upper arms is a great option for patients who desire a more athletic but still natural-looking result.

Fat transfer stands out from other cosmetic procedures because the plastic surgeon does not introduce any permanent foreign materials into your body. There are also fewer and smaller incisions than procedures which use implants—meaning that healing may be faster. Whether it is due to genetics, the natural aging process, or another factor, some men seem to have narrower shoulders and an underwhelming contour of the biceps and triceps. This can cause men to feel self-conscious about their bodies. While some men may opt for silicone implants, others may want a procedure that can create a more chiseled contour using their own natural tissues. This is why many men prefer fat transfer over other techniques.

Where can fat be extracted from? At the Body Sculpting Center of NYC, we tell our patients that any area with excess fat can be suctioned and harvested. Most commonly patients request: 

  • Stomach (belly)
  • Inner thighs and Outer thighs (saddlebags and banana rolls)
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Lower back (muffin top)
  • Arms (batwings)
  • Submental (double chin)

During your initial consultation for fat transfer to the shoulders and upper arms, you will discuss your post-treatment aesthetic goals with the plastic surgeon. A medical exam is performed to determine your eligibility. He will explain the procedure, and you will have ample time with the plastic surgeon to address any questions or concerns you may have about the fat transfer procedure. Individuals who desire to slim a problem area of the body and bulk up the shoulders and arms are ideal candidates for fat transfer to the shoulders and upper arms procedure with our best in class Manhattan, NYC plastic surgeon.

During the procedure, your NYC plastic surgeon makes a small incision at the donor site and uses liposuction to extract fat from the problem area (commonly the stomach, waist, back, or inner thighs). Once the fat is purified, your plastic surgeon injects the fat into the shoulders and upper arms to achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals. After the procedure, patients recover in a private recovery room before returning home on the same day of surgery. The procedure takes about 2 hours, and patients can expect to make a full recovery within 2-3 weeks.
