Dr. Mosser have helped clients deal with the dreaded bat wings and banish them for good.
A Call to Arms!
The demand for arm contouring procedures such as an arm lift alone or an arm lift combined with liposuction have skyrocketed for the past few years. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported last year that arm lifts have increased to a whopping 4,378 percent for the past decade. Plastic surgeons accredited such increase to two primary factors: media’s focus on celebrities with well-toned arms such as Michelle Obama and the introduction of newer technologies which have made it easier and less invasive to improve the appearance of the upper arms.
The Killer Arm Contouring Combination: Liposuction and Upper Arm Lift
Dr. Mosser recommends combining liposuction and an arm lift procedure to achieve satisfactory outcomes. First, liposuction targets lumpy pockets of fat that have proven to be resistant to countless attempts of diet and exercise. Here at our practice, we employ various liposuction techniques to help get rid of localized pockets of fat in the upper arms and improve the dreaded lumpy or dimpled look.
Meanwhile, an arm lift alone is appropriate for getting rid of flabby, excess skin which typically occurs in individuals who just lost significant amounts of weight or have recently undergone childbirth. Many individuals who seek skin tightening options specifically for the upper arms feel that their upper limbs is not in proportion with the rest of their body.
Majority of our patients are truly satisfied when merging both an arm liposuction and an arm lift to significantly improve the appearance of bat wings and finally go sleeveless with confidence!
