Arm Lift, Body Lift, and Liposuction are three cosmetic procedures commonly used to enhance the body and improve its shape. They are designed to reduce excess skin and fat and to tone and contour
Each procedure may require multiple sessions and should be tailored to the individual's needs, weight, and desired outcome. Candidates should be close to their ideal weight and not plan future pregnancies to get the best results.Contact Us
This procedure explicitly targets loose skin and fat on the upper arm. Although diet and exercise can reduce the size of the upper arm, excess skin cannot be removed, and an arm lift might be indicated.
The procedure will help reduce excess skin and fat in the upper arm and reshape the arm, resulting in smoother skin and contour and a more toned and proportionate appearance. Sometimes liposuction might be used during the same procedure to remove excess fat.
This procedure does leave patients with a scar along the whole length of their upper arm.
Although this is mostly hidden, it will be visible with normal arm movement, and patients should be aware of this.
A body lift is usually performed in patients who have undergone bariatric surgery or lost significant weight through diet and exercise. The excess skin and underlying tissue resulting from such massive weight loss can be uncomfortable, leaving patients self conscious and finding it difficult to embrace their new bodies.
Excess skin, fat, and other tissue are removed during this procedure. An upper, mid, or lower body lift or a combination is performed, depending on where the excess skin is located.
Body lift surgery cannot necessarily be completed in one procedure. Multiple procedures might have to be performed to reach optimal body contouring. Liposuction might also be necessary to refi ne results.
A body lift is usually performed in patients who have undergone bariatric surgery or lost significant weight through diet and exercise.
You could consider this procedure if:
Sometimes weight loss and exercise are ineffective in removing unwanted lumps, bumps, and fatty deposits in certain areas, such as the neck, the hips, the bra line, under the arms, on the thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, and arms.
Liposuction can effectively remove these stubborn fat deposits, at the same time contouring or sculpting the shape of the body.
The procedure is often performed to refi ne the results of abdominoplasties and breast reductions or body lift procedures after massive weight loss.
Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure.
Typical areas suitable for liposuction are the abdomen, back, buttocks, chest, inner knees, hips, flanks (love handles), neckline, and areas under the chin, inner and outer thighs, and upper arms.
Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and ideal candidates should be very close to their ideal weight to benefit most from it.
You could consider this procedure if you have reached your ideal weight (within 30% of the ideal weight) but are left with pockets of fat in certain areas.
The following cannot be corrected/improved with this procedure:
A tummy tuck removes excess abdominal skin and tightens the abdominal muscles at the same surgical sitting, if necessary.
Excess abdominal skin and lax muscles could result from childbirth or weight loss, aging, or hereditary and cannot be removed by diet or exercise alone. In some cases, liposuction could be performed in the same surgical setting.
Female patients should not plan future pregnancies and should be close to their ideal weight.
An abdominoplasty procedure is not a weight loss procedure.
You could consider this procedure if:
Patients with a tight, “beer”-belly type appearance will not receive any benefit from this procedure.
