When we were young, gravity dropped us to the ground when we played. Now that we’re older, gravity does different things…
Extra flesh under our arms is one of the most common signs of aging, and liposuction at my practice near Spokane could be the answer. As we age the tension under our arms starts to give way. We can exercise and diet to the best of our ability, but here’s the bottom line: Gravity usually wins. Sometimes weight loss can also leave us with more skin under our arms.
Is an Arm Lift Worth It?
So we are hearing more and more of people talk about getting an arm lift. This operation is called brachioplasty, and it reshapes the under portion of the arm from the elbow to the shoulder. Traditional brachioplasty involves intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. This will leave a scar and require some time of recuperation before returning to life as usual.
Does Smartlipo Work on Arms?
I have been recommending an alternative: Smartlipo® at my practice in Coeur d’Alene. Smartlipo liposuction uses a laser energy device that melts and destroys fat cells, making it less invasive than the traditional liposuction procedure. Plus the downtime is usually around a day since we only use localized anesthesia.
Some of the benefits of Smartlipo are:
- Fat is dissolved with laser light, a more gentle approach than traditional liposuction
- Smartlipo can be used on almost any area of the body
- The procedure stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter skin
- Because incisions are small, the procedure causes only minimal scarring
So if you are concerned with the appearance of your underarms, whether from age, weight loss, or even genetics, please contact us. Smartlipo is quicker and easier than people expect.
We can’t stop all the signs of aging – but we sure can put up a great fight!
