ArmTite: An Exceptional Option for Arm Contouring

“Bat wings” or flabby arms are a major concern among many women. Caused by factors such as age-related hormonal changes, weight fluctuations, reduced physical activity and gravitational pull, this aesthetic concern does not usually respond to even rigorous diet and exercises. Brachioplasty or traditional arm lift can address this concern and remove a large amount of fat, but it involves extensive downtime and long scars which are difficult to camouflage. Fortunately, we now have an exceptional arm contouring option – BodyTite in NYC. BodyTite is a minimally-invasive FDA-approved liposuction device that provides excellent results without incisions, unsightly scars, and long downtime. ArmTite or BodyTite™ on arms is an ideal option for tightening skin with minimal to moderate sagging.

ArmTite

Invented by plastic surgeons Dr. Spero Theodorou and Dr. Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT® in NYC, ArmTite can provide you with smooth, shapely arms without the unavoidable visible scars associated with traditional arm lift surgery. If your concern is just getting rid of excess fat, then liposuction on arms would be enough. When excess fat and excess skin are both concerns, BodyTite liposuction is the most reliable solution. This innovative, minimally-invasive procedure uses Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology to selectively remove excess fat deposits from the upper arms and also provides efficient skin tightening. The procedure can provide your upper arms with a toned, youthful look, with minimal side effects and discomfort, and importantly, no visible scars. And unlike traditional surgery, ArmTite helps you achieve the well-shaped arms you desire without extensive downtime.

The procedure begins with administering local anesthesia to numb the treatment site. A tiny incision is made in the skin of the upper arm to insert the RF-assisted cannula used for BodyTite treatment. The device features two parallel probes, one that passes below the skin and the other that passes directly above the skin. The RF energy passes between the two probes, melting fat on the inside while simultaneously causing skin to contract and tighten, allowing the surgeon sculpt the arms to achieve the ideal shape.

Benefits of ArmTite include:

  • Arm lift without scars
  • Outpatient procedure
  • Recontouring effects are immediately visible
  • Significant skin tightening
  • Minimal pain, swelling and bruising
  • Short downtime
  • Quick recovery

However, only a good candidate can enjoy all the benefits of ArmTite or scarless arm lift surgery. Ideal candidates are those who have sagging upper arms, good skin elasticity, and a stable weight.

Paula Abdul, International pop icon, who is also brand ambassador of InMode, had BodyTite on arms (ArmTite) as an alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. The procedure helped her restore sleeker, more youthful looking arms without invasive cosmetic surgery.

As this scarless arm lift surgery in NYC involves minimal surgical trauma and downtime, most patients return to their regular activities soon. Recovery time and results vary based on the extent of area treated and the amount of fat removed. Larger areas will require a longer recovery time and best results usually appear 6-12 weeks after the procedure.

Whether you have a surgical or a minimally invasive procedure, it’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions on exercise and other matters after arm lift surgery to obtain optimal results. Importantly, a healthy lifestyle is necessary to maintain the outcomes.

Are you a Good Candidate for a Scarless Arm Lift?

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.

Scarless Arm Lift

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 slim, 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

Recently, International Pop Icon Paula Abdul joined InMode Ltd. as a brand ambassador to share her positive experience with the Company’s BodyTite, FaceTite and Morpheus8 technologies for her arm and lower face as an alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. Dr. Theodorou discussed the choice. He said, “Paula is an excellent candidate for InMode’s innovative technology using Radio-Frequency (RF) to provide a natural tighter appearance. She exercised regularly, was healthy but had some areas that troubled her due to past injuries and the effects of aging.”

Leading NYC plastic surgeons Drs. Spero Theodorou and Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT in NYC are inventors of innovative BodyTite on Arms, a scarless arm lift procedure that enhances the contour of your arms under local anesthesia to tighten and remove the excess skin under the arms, without leaving any scars. Similarly, invented by Dr. Theodorou in conjunction with InMode, two powerful technologies from InMode – FaceTite and Morpheus8 are combined together for a breakthrough procedure EmbraceRF in NYC that uses RF energy to get rid of unwanted fat in the lower face. This unique one-time facial rejuvenation solution effectively treats the subdermal adipose tissue of the face – without surgery.

Scarless Arm Lift Surgery – The Latest Advancement in Brachioplasty

Sagging, flabby upper arms are a major aesthetic concern among many women, and one which often intensifies as they age. Caused by factors such as excessive weight loss, heredity, and natural aging, flabby upper arms most often do not respond to even rigorous diet and exercise. The only option that was available to address the problem was a traditional arm lift or brachioplasty. However, while the procedure can remove a large amount of fat, it involves extensive downtime and long scars which are difficult to camouflage. But now, scarless arm lift surgery in NYC provides patients with excellent results without incisions, unsightly scars, and long downtime.

NYC plastic surgeons perform this highly efficient minimally-invasive procedure using the FDA approved BodyTite device. BodyTite uses Radiofrequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) technology to selectively remove excess fat deposits from the upper arms and provides you with well-shaped arms without incision scars.

Traditional invasive arm lift surgery or brachioplasty requires administering general anesthesia to create a long incision to extract the unwanted fat from the upper arm region, which would involve surgical trauma, longer downtime, and slow healing. On the other hand, BodyTite RFAL melts the subcutaneous fat, coagulates the blood vessels, and tightens the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissues intact. The procedure requires only local anesthesia and comes with minimal pain and downtime. Unlike traditional liposuction, BodyTite arm lift leaves no scars and is recognized for its special ability to tighten the skin up to 40% more than conventional liposuction. This is a “gap” procedure for many patients who may be turned away for liposuction alone but are not severe enough for the traditional brachioplasty.

BodyTite in NYC begins with the surgeon marking the treatment site and administering local anesthesia to numb it. Once the area is numb, a small incision will be made to insert the BodyTite hand piece to deliver focused energy into the site. The radiofrequency (RF) energy liquefies the unwanted fat cells quickly, allowing them to be easily removed. As the procedure tightens the skin and coagulates the tissues, it helps the surgeon sculpt the arms to the ideal shape. The scarless arm lift takes approximately 30-45 minutes, though this would depend on the extent of the area treated and other individual considerations. The procedure improves sagging, wrinkled skin with less downtime and provides long-lasting, attractive results – with no scars.

BodyTite™ on arms (ArmTite) is a procedure done under local anesthesia and its uniqueness is that it can remove the excess skin under the arms and tighten the skin without leaving any scars. Downtime and side effects are minimal.

Alyssa says she was comfortable during the arm liposuction surgery and did not feel any pain. The surgery didn’t take very long.

Results

Post operation, she was sore for a few days but was able to go back to work and continue with her daily routine quickly after surgery. After the swelling subsided, she was able to see the results, while healing and final results were more of a gradual process. Even one year after the surgery, she says that she feels great.

Alyssa says, “I had a wonderful experience at bodySCULPT® for my liposuction procedure on my arms. Dr. Theodorou made me feel 100% comfortable before, during, and after surgery. He is meticulous with his work and gave me the beautifully sculpted arms that I have always wanted.  I am so happy with my results!”

Virtually Scarless Arm Lift – Correct Batwings without Long Incisions

The virtually scarless arm lift is an innovative technique that addresses sagging skin in the upper arms or batwings without creating any visible surgical scars. Leading plastic surgeons perform scarless arm lift in NYC using the advanced, FDA approved BodyTite liposuction device. For the right candidate, the procedure can provide slim, toned, and sculpted arms. This is an ideal option when even stringent diets and strenuous workouts cannot address saggy upper arms, which are usually the result of factors such as excessive weight loss, heredity and aging.

Scarless Arm liftBodyTite uses RFAL (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology which liquefies subcutaneous fat, coagulates the blood vessels and tightens the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissues intact. The procedure requires only local anesthesia and can be performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. It involves minimal pain and downtime. This is a “gap” procedure for many patients who may be turned away for liposuction alone but are not severe enough for the traditional brachioplasty operation.

The surgeon will first mark the area to be treated. A local anesthetic will be administered to numb the site. Once the area is numb, a small incision will be made to insert the BodyTite hand piece and radiofrequency energy delivered to emulsify (“melt”) the fat. Once the fat is liquefied, it will be gently suctioned away. The procedure also encourages collagen production, providing great skin tightening effects. While traditional arm lift surgery leaves scars, this innovative radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technique does not. BodyTite improves sagging, wrinkled skin with less downtime and long-lasting, attractive results.

The distinct benefits of the BodyTite arm lift procedure are:

  • Well-shaped arms – without invasive surgery and scars
  • Controlled and focused energy delivery
  • Careful monitoring of skin temperature
  • Coagulation of blood vessels to minimize bleeding
  • Less patient downtime
  • Fewer risks and complications
  • Minimal post-operative discomfort and bruising
  • Reduced pain and swelling
  • Reduced tissue trauma
  • Up to 40% skin contraction
  • Rapid recovery and faster healing

The ideal candidate for scarless arm lift surgery is a person with moderate amounts of fatty tissue, loose skin in the upper inner arm area due to aging, heredity or weight loss.

The actual recovery time can vary among patients depending on the comprehensiveness of the procedure – the amount of fat removed and the extent of the area treated. Most patients are able to get back to routine activity without experiencing any risks or complications within 48 hours. Light activities can be resumed immediately and normal activities in a few days time. However, arm exercises should be delayed for at least 6-8 weeks.

If you are considering a virtually scarless arm lift, then do your research well and choose a surgeon who has extensive experience in performing this procedure. After confirming your candidature for the treatment, a reliable surgeon will explain the procedure to you, including its risks and the benefits. You will be given specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure as well as about recovery. With a surgeon who is trained and skilled in performing BodyTite virtually scarless arm lift, you can expect beautiful sculpted arms, though following a healthy lifestyle would be necessary to maintain long-lasting results.

Dr. Spero J. Theodorou performs Scarless Arm Lift under Local Anesthesia Successfully

Flabby arms or batwings are a common aesthetic concern among many women. Underarm fat does not usually respond to even strenuous diets and exercise. Plastic surgeons offer the solution with arm lift surgery or brachioplasty. Today, advances in technology and plastic surgery techniques make it easy to get rid of that excess fat. Invented by plastic surgeons Dr.Spero Theodorou and Dr. Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT® in NYC, the innovative scarless arm lift can provide you with smooth, shapely arms without the unavoidable visible scars associated with traditional arm lift surgery.

Watch this video of Dr. Theodorou performing a minimally invasive scarless arm lift using BodyTite radiofrequency assisted liposuction platform on a 27 year old patient, Daniela.

Video player from: Scarless Arm Lift under Local Anesthesia

The patient was awake as the procedure was performed under local anesthesia. She had flabby arms and was not confident enough to wear sleeveless shirts and tank tube dresses. She tried hard to address this concern through diet and exercise, but realized that it’s harder to workout, especially targeting specific areas. So she decided to undergo this arm contouring procedure that would make her comfortable in her own clothes. She says that she felt 27 is the right time as it is not too young and not too old to undergo this procedure.

When patients request a procedure, the plastic surgeon will first perform an assessment to determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure. A good candidate for the scarless BodyTite liposuction in NYC would be a person with sagging upper arms, but good skin elasticity and a stable weight. After evaluating Daniela, Dr. Theodorou determined that she was a good candidate because no matter how much weight she lost, her arms would always be fuller. She could not get rid the fat from her arms with just exercise and she also had loose skin. The surgeon performed this procedure on the whole upper arm of this patient, and not just on the under part.

As procedure was performed using local anesthesia, the patient was awake and she talked with the surgeon as her arms got done. Moreover, down time is minimal as she didn’t have much pain and she could lift her arms and felt normal.

In the scarless arm lift procedure, the patient is first administered local anesthesia. The surgeon then inserts the BodyTite radiofrequency probe through a small incision made in the upper arm. The radiofrequency energy gently liquefies the unwanted fat cells, allowing them to be easily removed using a cannula. In addition to removing fat, the procedure simultaneously tightens the skin and coagulates the tissues, which helps the surgeon sculpt the arms to achieve the ideal shape. Other benefits of this procedure include:

  • Immediate skin tightening
  • Efficient body contouring
  • Less swelling and bruising
  • Minimal discomfort and pain

Recovery after the surgery is faster and easier than with the conventional technique. Immediately after the procedure, a slight difference is visible and after six weeks the patient felt more confident as the results were noticeable. She was happy that the people she met noticed the change in her arms, like the definition and how they had shrunk.

Daniela is very happy with the results of her BodyTite scarless arm lift in NYC. She recommends the procedure for women who have self-esteem issues, as it would make them feel really confident about their body.

The ideal place to have the BodyTite scarless arm lift in NYC is bodySCULPT®.

New York City Plastic Surgeons Develop ArmTite, a Minimally Invasive Scarless Arm Lift

New York City Plastic Surgeons Develop ArmTite“Bat wings” or flabby arms are an aesthetic concern that many women face. Flabby upper arms are resistant to diet and exercise. Till recently, brachioplasty or invasive arm lift surgery was the only option to address the issue. Today, advances in technology and plastic surgery techniques make it easy to get rid of that excess fat with a scarless arm lift. Invented by plastic surgeons Dr. Spero Theodorou and Dr. Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT® in NYC, this innovative technique can provide you with smooth, shapely arms without the unavoidable visible scars associated with traditional arm lift surgery. The minimally-invasive procedure, BodyTite™ on arms (ArmTite), is performed using the FDA-approved BodyTite radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) platform.

Saggy underarms are usually the result of weight fluctuations which cause the skin to stretch, not exercising the upper arm area, aging, reduced muscle tone, and gravitational forces. Most people find that those unwanted deposits of fat in the upper arms refuse to go away even with stringent diets and rigorous exercise.

If your concern is just excess fat, then liposuction on arms would be enough, but it would offer very little in terms of skin tightening.  When excess fat and excess skin are both concerns, then BodyTite liposuction is the most reliable solution. BodyTite in NYC removes the unwanted fat pockets and tightens the excess skin between the underarm and elbow. The procedure can provide your upper arms with a toned, youthful look, with minimal side effects and discomfort, and importantly, no visible scars. Unlike traditional arm lift surgery or brachioplasty, ArmTite helps you achieve the well-shaped arms you desire without extensive downtime.

The procedure begins with administering local anesthesia to the treatment area, avoiding the usual risks associated with general anesthesia that can affect your heart rate and blood pressure. A tiny incision is then made in the skin of the upper arm to insert the cannula used for BodyTite treatment. The RF energy delivered via the cannula gently liquefies the unwanted fat cells quickly, allowing them to be easily removed.

BodyTite uses bipolar radiofrequency technology for superior skin tightening effects. The device features two parallel probes, one that passes below the skin and the other that passes directly above the skin. The radiofrequency energy passes between the two probes, melting fat on the inside while simultaneously causing skin to contract and tighten, allowing the surgeon sculpt the arms to achieve the ideal shape.

The key benefits of BodyTite for arms are:

  • Arm lift without scars
  • Outpatient procedure
  • Recontouring effects are immediately visible
  • Significant skin tightening
  • Minimal pain, swelling and bruising
  • Short downtime
  • Quick recovery

Due to minimal surgical trauma and downtime, most patients return to routine activities soon. Depending upon the area treated and the amount of fat removed, the recovery time and results vary.  Larger areas will require a longer recovery time and results is patient specific. Best results appear 6-12 weeks after the procedure. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions on exercise and other matters after arm lift surgery to obtain optimal results. Importantly, a healthy lifestyle is necessary to maintain the outcomes.

As there are limits to the amount of fat that can be removed and the extent of skin that can be tightened, not everyone is a good candidate for the BodyTite arm lift. If you are a suitable candidate, ArmTite is the ideal option to resolve those saggy upper arms before summer arrives.

The procedure involves delivering a controlled amount of energy to treated tissue, liquefy the fat, and tighten the skin – without any scarring. The plastic surgeon will insert the BodyTite radiofrequency probe through a small incision made on the skin of the upper arm. The radiofrequency energy gently liquefies the unwanted fat cells quickly, allowing them to be easily removed using a cannula. The procedure simultaneously tightens the skin and coagulates the tissues, which helps the surgeon sculpt the arms to achieve the ideal shape. The procedure requires only a small incision, it is virtually scarless.

A good candidate for the scarless BodyTite liposuction in NYC would be a person with sagging upper arms, but good skin elasticity and a stable weight. Down time is minimal and recovery faster and easier than with the conventional technique. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions on exercise and other matters after arm lift surgery.

As the BodyTite scarless arm lift involves a specialized liposuction technique, it is important that you choose a plastic surgeon who is an expert at it. An experienced surgeon can provide you with effective, long-lasting arm contouring results.
