“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.
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.
