With age or after weight loss, the skin of the arm may stretch and this area sometimes keeps fat deposits that are resistant to diet and sport.
It is now possible to tighten the skin of these areas and have the unsightly fatty tissue removed.
For a detailed analysis of the morphology of arms and thighs, and depending on your age and the tone of your skin, the surgeon will advise you different solutions:
– Only liposuction from inside the arms;
– Retightening the skin from inside;
– Association of liposuction + skin retightening called lipo lift.
Whatever method you choose, it is a simple intervention; it is not very painful and enables fast recovery.
To make your choice, the most important criterion is skin tone. If it is well toned, it may tighten itself with a simple liposuction without scarring.
On the other hand, if your skin is loose, you will get a better cosmetic result with a retightening of the inner arms.
Your weight is the main factor of success and choice of your remodeling technique. If you are currently considerably overweight (over 100 kg), it is preferable to avoid having a remodeling surgery.
If you already had a sufficient weight loss, remodeling your arms, thighs, belly and breasts is possible. The technique above aims to tighten the loose skin and remove the extra fat.
If you do not have a weight problem, but only a localized accumulation of fat, liposuction is the best solution.
These procedures are usually performed at 30-40 years old. Most doctors recommend not have them after 60 years old: results are better if the skin is still firm and elastic.
