Body Contouring for Your Arms By Vishnu Rumalla on August 28, 2015

Woman showing her bicepAs you have gotten older, the skin on your upper arms may have lost flexibility. Excess fat deposits may also have gathered in the area, even though you are at a healthy weight. Alternatively, you may have lost a large amount of weight. Now you struggle with stretched, hanging skin on your arms. In either case, Dr. Rumalla can improve your appearance with body contouring procedures for the arms. If you have a significant amount of excess skin, and you desire a dramatic change, consider an arm lift (brachioplasty). Dr. Rumalla can also perform liposuction if your primary goal is to remove excess fat. In addition to traditional liposuction, he proudly offers Smartlipo TriplexTM. This technique uses advanced lasers for more precise, minimal-discomfort care. After a complete consultation, Dr. Rumalla can help you choose the right treatment for your needs.

Arm Lifts for a Dramatic Enhancement

Dr. Rumalla can use several techniques to perform an arm lift. The one he selects for you will depend on the severity of your skin damage and how much of a lift you desire.

  • Standard arm lift: To remove a large amount of skin and fat, Dr. Rumalla may recommend a standard arm lift. Typically, he will create an incision from your arm pit to your elbow. Through this opening, he will remove unwanted tissues.
  • Extended brachioplasty: If you have severely drooping skin under the uppermost part of your arm, Dr. Rumalla can create a longer incision that extends along the side of your body.
  • Limited-incision arm lift: Dr. Rumalla can also create a short incision inside your arm pit. This technique will result in nearly invisible scarring, but it will eliminate a smaller amount of skin. 

Liposuction for Subtler Results

If you have fat deposits in your arms, but you do not have any excess skin, liposuction may be a good option. It is important to remember that liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss. You should only undergo this treatment if you are at a healthy weight and if exercise has not been effective in toning your upper arms. To perform liposuction, Dr. Rumalla will insert a small tube, or cannula, through tiny incisions. Manually loosening the fat deposits from the surrounding tissues, he can carefully suction them out with the tube. Liposuction involves minimal discomfort and a short recovery time. Dr. Rumalla can also perform liposuction in conjunction with an arm lift.

State-of-the-Art Smartlipo® TriplexTM

Smartlipo® is similar to traditional liposuction, and it can achieve comparable results. However, this innovative method uses laser energy to melt the fat cells before removal. In this way, the treatment can minimize discomfort, as well as the effects on your nearby tissues. Smartlipo® also stimulates the natural production of collagen. This naturally-occurring protein gives your skin firmness and elasticity. Because of this effect, Smartlipo® can have long-lasting, rejuvenating effects.
