Even if you made it your New Year’s resolution to get more fit and toned in 2014, there are some frustrating areas that just don’t respond to a healthy diet and exercise. One of those stubborn fatty areas is the arms–but there is help!
Arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) is a procedure that tightens loose or sagging skin around the upper arms, sometimes not-so-affectionately called “bat wings”. Arm liposuction is often conducted at the same time as the arm lift.
At Vinings Surgery Center, Dr. Robert Colgrove uses some of the most advanced liposuction techniques to remove localized fatty tissue deposits and create beautiful body contours. He customizes each treatment according to the unique needs of each patient, an approach that allows him to consistently deliver remarkable liposuction results. Because each patient’s situation is different, only a personal consultation with Dr. Colgrove can help you determine which liposuction method is the best for you.
Liposuction precisely breaks apart and emulsifies fat deposits for easy, safe removal. The result is a more beautifully sculpted appearance with less time off for recovery. The length of the surgery is generally 2 to 3 hours, depending on the extent of the surgery, and is typically performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Recovery time is 1 to 2 weeks. Strenuous actives can be performed within 2 to 4 weeks after procedure. The results of this procedure are permanent when accompanied by an appropriate diet and exercise.
Here are some happy words from a recent patient of Dr. Colgrove’s who had an arm lift:
“Dr. Robert Colgrove did a arm lift and took off excess skin from my elbows. Both turned out better than I expected. Downtime wasn’t painful. Only took two weeks off work.
I would definitely recommend this procedure. My arms look 20 years younger than before. The scars are looking better everyday and should not be noticeable by summer when I get in to my tank tops.”
