As people are looking for cosmetic procedures that do not require invasive surgery and new technologies are being developed to meet this demand. The buildup of excess fat deposits in the arm pit and upper arms is a major aesthetic concern especially for women. Traditional arm lift surgery or brachioplasty, an invasive cosmetic surgical option to restore the lost arm contour, leaves scars. On the other hand, arm liposuction NYC performed using Smartlipo laser technology removes excess fat and tightens the skin with hardly any scarring. A recent article in American Health & Beauty says that laser liposuction on arms could work well as an alternative for a minimally invasive arm lift.
The article notes, “Smartlipo may offer patients a way to tighten up moderately lax skin on their upper arms, also known as Bat Arms”.
Brachioplasty involves surgery to remove fat and skin from the upper arms. The plastic surgeon choose one of three locations – medial arm, posterior arm or poster medial arm – for the final placement of the arm scar. This procedure is a practical option for those who have lost a lot of weight, through medical weight loss surgery or gastric bypass surgery. However, it involves risks from general anesthesia and longer downtime. One of the post-surgical side effects are long scars resulting from stitches along the suture line.
Smartlipo overcomes these issues and liposuction on arms using this modality helps remove arm pit flab effectively and with the least surgical trauma. This procedure is a good option patients who have moderate skin laxity in the arms as in this case, conventional arm lift may be too extreme and unnecessary. The advanced FDA-approved minimally-invasive Smartlipo Triplex workstation blends multiple laser wavelengths (1440, 1064 and 1320 nm) in a single laser output. It is specifically designed to easily melt fat, coagulate the tissues, and tighten the skin – without leaving scars.
The procedure involves making small incisions are made in the upper arm and elbow and inserting the small cannula to delivering laser energy to target and liquefy the fat cells. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. The system also works to tighten the supportive tissue and smooth the skin over the new contour. The intelligent delivery systems of this platform monitor skin temperature and control the flow of energy to prevent overtreatment. Other benefits of Smartlipo on arms are:
- The procedure can be carried out in about an hour under local anesthesia
- Patients remain awake during the entire procedure
- Minimal discomfort
- Reduced downtime
- Quick recovery
Smartlipo removes fat in a safe manner and also promotes skin tightening with good sculpted outcomes. The results of the procedure are permanent and it leaves hardly any scars or marks. Most patients can return to work within a few days, though this depends on your occupation. Results may vary from patient to patient and one should have realistic expectations about the outcome. Weight gain can affect the results and so adhering to a healthy lifestyle after the procedure is important.
