Excess fat and loose, sagging skin in the arms is a major concern, mostly among women, resulting in arms that are out of proportion with the rest of the body. Arm liposuction in Manhattan, NYC and arm lift surgery are effective ways to slim and tone your arms. Sagging arms can be the result of factors such as aging, significant weight loss, reduced physical activity, sun damage, and genetics.
While arm liposuction surgery removes extra arm fat and doesn’t address loose skin concern, a brachioplasty or arm lift is designed to remove both excessive fat and extra skin and tighten any remaining loose skin. These procedures can be combined to maximize fat removal and give the arms the best cosmetic shape possible. NYC plastic surgeons use advanced energy assisted devices to contour the arms.
Choosing between these procedures depends on whether you need to remove excess fat or tighten sagging skin.
Arm liposuction in Manhattan, NYC is an effective way to improve the disproportionate appearance of the arms.
Skilled plastic surgeons perform arm liposuction using the FDA approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation, the advanced laser liposuction modality from Cynosure. This minimally invasive laser workstation combines three laser wavelengths (1064nm, 1320nm and 1440nm) to liquefy excess fat prior to extraction, coagulate the tissues, and tighten loose skin.
An effective alternative to traditional liposuction surgery, this laser liposuction procedure is designed to provide you with firmer, toned and attractive upper arms. The procedure involves delivering laser energy to the upper arm area via a small incision which breaks up the fat deposits, allowing them to be safely suctioned off. For faster recovery, your plastic surgeon may recommend wearing a compression garment around the arm 24×7 for up to 2-4 weeks. Most patients return to work and light activities within a few days after the procedure.
Brachioplasty or arm lift is an arm reshaping surgery that can remove extra skin and fat from the area between the armpit and elbow. The procedure gets rid of bat wings, and makes your arms look thinner and tighter. It is an ideal option to tone saggy arms – which cannot be done using liposuction – smooth the skin and upper arm tissues, and remove extra folds of skin. When performed by an expert, the procedure can provide you with beautiful, sculpted arms.
