Say Goodbye To Bat Wings
As women age, it’s not uncommon to notice sagging skin on the arms. Skin that was once tight and smooth tends to become loose and flabby as the force of gravity imposes its will. Despite physical activity like targeting your triceps and biceps in the gym, it’s inevitable that we reach an age where we begin to notice sagging in the thin skin of the upper area of the arm. When you add weight gain and/or weight loss into the equation, it can lead to droopy, flabby arms or deflated, loose skin that lacks its previous structure.
How Liposuction Can Help
Traditional Brachioplasty Tends To Bring The Best Results
The Laser Assisted Liposuction Approach
However, the traditional brachioplasty scar is not something everyone can deal with. The Laser Assisted Liposuction Approach is a procedure where you introduce heat to create something like a thermal injury to the subcutaneous fat. Compared to a traditional brachioplasty the tightening is still minimal, but to some women, it is still a viable approach that will get them positive results.
How Can You Make The Best Judgement Call?
Brachioplasty is ideal for patients who have lost a massive amount of weight, and it’s one of the few procedures that can help patients see an adequate degree of improvement. Take a woman in her fifties with a little extra weight as an example – it comes down to a judgment call based on the surgeon’s professional experience. Boca Raton’s Dr. Jason Pozner says “I look at a patient, and I can tell if they need a bigger surgery.”
Chicago’s Dr. Laurie Casas says “There’s a continuum of care,” and the person best equipped to determine where you fall on the spectrum is a formally trained surgeon. It’s important to find a board certified plastic surgeon who takes into account your goals and body type to determine the best possible procedure. Working hand in hand with your preferred surgeon is vital for a successful outcome.
