Smartlipo™ Arm Liposuction
The skin-tightening effect of Smartlipo Triplex™ laser arm liposuction treatment means not only a reduction in unwanted bulk on the arms, but a continual increase in skin elasticity and smoothness over time.
The cutting edge technology of Smartlipo Triplex™ gives surgeons the precision and control to provide more natural-looking upper arm liposuction, less downtime and a continual tightening and smoothing of the skin in the treatment area.
Traditional Treatments for the Arms
Brachioplasty: With a long incision from elbow to armpit, the surgeon removes excess skin and then closes the incision area. This could be an option for patients experiencing severe “laxity” or looseness in skin. In many cases, Smartlipo has provided patients with stark improvement in laxity and without the discomfort and downtime often resulting from traditional treatments. However, brachioplasty my be the treatment of choice if skin laxity is severe.
Liposuction: Treatments such as traditional liposuction can help alleviate unwanted fat, though arm liposuction has not historically been successful in tightening skin and improving skin laxity. Traditional liposuction also brings a greater risk of skin dimpling and the extended recovery, complications and increased costs of general anesthesia.
Coolsculpting: Cryolipolysis, or Coolsculpting, is a proven, completely non-invasive technology that has been approved by the FDA for treatment of the abdomen and flanks. However, this procedure has not been shown to address concerns about reduction in the arms and in skin laxity.
