Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity can cause the upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. While exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, it does not resolve the excess hanging skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues and localized fat deposits.
Upper Arm Fat Reduction with an Arm Lift in Boca Raton
Excessive fullness of the upper arm can be reduced with liposuction; however, in patients where excess skin is a problem, or in patients who have lost significant amounts of weight, more is needed. A brachioplasty, or arm lift, can help reduce excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow in order to give a more toned, firm, and proportionate appearance. During an arm lift, the excess skin and tissue is removed, restoring a more pleasing, firm, fit, contour to the arm. The use of Vaser liposuction increases skin tightening, for a dramatic improvement.
Slimmer Arms Bring a Boost in Self-Confidence
An arm lift can be the perfect solution for women who, due to excess skin and fat on the upper arms, feel unable to wear sleeveless clothing. The procedure restores choices in what to wear, and boosts self-confidence and provides a more positive body image.
Vaser Liposuction: The Difference
The Vaser liposuction system functions differently than traditional liposuction. This system uses sound waves to loosen the fatty deposits prior to extraction. It is a “tumescent” liposuction system, in which a solution made up of saline (salt water solution) and anesthetic is injected into the extraction site. Rather than the traditional method in which a cannula (hollow needle) is used to extract fat by moving it back and forth beneath the skin surface, high frequency vibrations are used to break apart the fat cells, which are then extracted with a smaller cannula.
This is gentler process than older liposuction techniques, and better preserves the surrounding tissue, and typically produces less bruising or bleeding. It has the added benefit of tightening the skin in the upper arms, leading to a more defined look after the procedure.
Arm Lift: What Do You Need?
Only a personal consultation will allow Dr. Becker to determine what procedure, or combination of procedures, will produce the slimmer, trimmer upper arms you want. For some patients, it is necessary to remove excess skin. Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, or have aging skin that no longer has the capacity to shrink back, and is severely lax, may require a surgical procedure to tighten arm skin in conjunction with liposuction.
Sculpting Your Upper Arms for a More Youthful Look
