Excess skin and fat in the upper areas of the arm are one of the biggest challenges for individuals, affecting their confidence and self-esteem. Many find themselves covering up with long sleeves while avoiding any activity that reveals too much of their arms. More and more patients are choosing the Arm Lift procedure to treat sagging skin and excess fat around the upper arms.
Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti Aging offers two Arm Lift procedures that treat flabby and sagging arms, including Vaserplazty (Vaser and Renuvion® Technology) and Brachioplasty. Both surgeries can be used to take away fat in the arms and tighten the skin, with the Vaserplazty procedure delivering amazing results with NO SCARS.
This no scar advanced procedure uses ultrasound-assisted liposuction to help get rid of fat cells by liquefying the existing fat cells so they can be suctioned out easily. The procedure uses a special device that rapidly vibrates, giving off ultrasound energy, and helping to liquefy the fat cells. The Renuvion® technology procedure is then applied for skin tightening. This technology uses plasma energy (or radiofrequency) to tighten and sculpt the arms, revealing a high definition and toned appearance, without extensive surgery, and no scars.
This procedure is best for patients who are not candidates for the Vaserplasty. During this procedure, an incision is made in the arm, generally on the inside or back of the arm, and excess fat is directly removed liposuction. The underlying tissue is then tightened and reshaped to tone the arm. The skin is then smoothed over the arm and the incisions are enclosed. This surgery is used to remove fat and tighten skin.
The Arm Lift procedures at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging can help a range of patients who have concerns about their arm conditions. Arm Lifts can be most beneficial when the patient has a large amount of excess skin and fat on the upper arm. The best patients for this procedure are in general health and at a stable weight. By scheduling a consultation appointment, we can ensure that this procedure will be beneficial for you.
The cost of the Arm Lift procedure depends on how extensive your procedure will be, and any other procedures such as fat transfer, that you would like to have at the same time. At your free consultation with our team at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti Aging, our surgeon will take your arm condition, skin type, and goals into consideration when determining the cost.
The Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging Patient Safety Program involves our patients, surgeon, nurses, staff, and patient families or other caregivers all working together toward a common goal: Assuring the safest possible surgical experience.
