We’ll help you reduce unwanted fat and excess skin along your upper arms so that you can look your best and live more confidently.
This operation is ideal for patients with:
- Changes related to aging and after fluctuations in weight including substantial weight loss
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction canula placed surgically into the subcutaneous fat to permanently remove fatty tissue with some skin tightening. There are minimal scars associated with this procedure. Patients have liposuction to one or several body areas alone, or in combination with other surgical procedures. Most patients that have liposuction alone will have same-day surgery, meaning they will be discharged home the same day as the operation. Dr. Platt will discuss the recovery process and establish a follow-up schedule with you.
If you experience discomfort, chafing, irritation or embarrassment from the excess skin and fat on your arms, an arm lift will benefit your overall wellbeing.
Our method includes directly removing excess skin and fat from your arms, as well as firming and tightening the area for a noticeably more toned and defined shape. During your initial consult we’ll do a comprehensive assessment and discuss your personal desires and aesthetic goals. We need to understand your medical history and your expectations to ensure we deliver the results you want. Our mission is to make you feel beautiful and confident in your own skin. Most of the time hard work pays off, but sometimes it doesn’t matter how many times a week you do “arm day” your arms still jiggle. Buy that sleeveless top, we’ll worry about your arms, you just make sure the top matches the shoes.
Once we examine your skin, soft tissue, muscles, how your body functions and your unique characteristics, we can determine how to execute an arm lift for your individual needs. Sometimes we may combine procedures with liposuction for optimal results. This is something we can discuss in-person. Our procedures are always customized to match your specific desires. If you have excess skin and fat around the arms, it’s likely paired with excess skin or fat around the back, chest and neck. We’ll assess what procedures will give you the look you want. We’re more than happy to help and offer our expert opinion so that your reflection matches your inner beauty.
