Loose sagging skin under the arms is a major concern among many women. Caused by factors such as excessive weight loss, heredity, and natural aging, flabby arms most often do not respond to even rigorous diet and exercises. Scarless arm lift surgery in NYC has emerged as a popular option to resolve this aesthetic issue. Performed using the advanced, FDA approved BodyTite liposuction device, this minimally invasive radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) treatment can provide you with well-shaped arms – without the scars associated with surgery. Leading NYC plastic surgeons Drs. Spero Theodorou and Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT in NYC are the inventors of the innovative BodyTite on arms / scarless arm lift procedure.
BodyTite in NYC utilizes patented RFAL technology to provide safe, gentle, and effective body contouring. The treatment removes unwanted fat from various areas of the body and tightens the skin, all without the prolonged downtime associated with conventional liposuction surgery. BodyTite liquefies subcutaneous arm fat, coagulates the blood vessels and tightens the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissues intact. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia.
BodyTite on arms is a “gap” procedure for many patients for whom liposuction alone may not provide the desired results, but are not severe enough for traditional arm lift surgery. BodyTite is generally suitable for patients who have mild or moderate skin laxity due to aging, weight loss, or other factors. For instance, if you have lost a significant amount of weight that has resulted in excess loose skin on the underside of your upper arms, then you might be a good candidate for this procedure. Similarly, if you have skin laxity due to aging or if you are uncomfortable or displeased with loose or sagging skin, this scarless arm lift can help. Regardless of these reasons, you would be a good candidate for scarless arm lift surgery in NYC only if you meet certain criteria:
- Are in good health with no medical conditions that could cause problems with healing or recovery
- Are close to your ideal weight
- Don’t smoke
- Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about the results
- Are committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a proper diet
Ideal candidates can expect to achieves lim, toned arms with scarless arm lift surgery in NYC.
International pop icon Paula Abdul, who is also brand ambassador of InMode, had BodyTite on arms as an alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. Though she maintained a healthy lifestyle with fitness and skincare routines, she wanted to tighten and tone her arms. The procedure helped her restore a sleeker, more youthful look without invasive cosmetic surgery.
As the procedure involves only minimal surgical trauma and downtime, most patients return to their routine activities within 48 hours, without experiencing any risks or complications. One study found that 81% patients returned to work within 1-3 days of the procedure. However, actual recovery time can vary depending on the correction required – the amount of fat removed and the extent of the area treated. Arm exercises should be delayed for at least 6-8 weeks.
The BodyTite scarless arm lift is a specialized liposuction technique, so it’s important that you choose a plastic surgeon who is an expert at it. An experienced plastic surgeon in NYC can provide you with effective, long-lasting arm contouring results. In an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice, you can expect end-to-end care and support all through the treatment, right from initial consultation till full recovery
