Alternatives to Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)

In some cases, liposuction can be used as an alternative to arm lift surgery. This is the case when the problem is not one of loose skin but instead one of extra fatty tissue in the arms. If the issue is one of extra fatty tissue and skin tone is good, liposuction may be an excellent approach to contouring the arms while leaving only minimal scars. Liposuction of the arms requires only very small incisions and has a faster recovery. It is important for patients to understand that most individuals are a good candidate for either liposuction of the arms or arm lift surgery but not both. Extremely minor cases of loose skin on the arms may be treatable by means of non-surgical techniques including laser skin tightening procedures. Dr Backstein works in conjunction with Malibu Sugar and will be able to direct candidates best treated non-surgically for expert advise on laser treatments.
