Fatty deposits in the upper arms can be effectively removed with laser liposuction. Through several small incisions, excess fat can be permanently removed, for a youthful, toned appearance and more shapely upper arms.
Some patients ask Dr. Galumbeck for his solution for loose, saggy skin of the upper arms. The excess skin may be the result of aging. The most extreme examples of "batwings" often follow extreme weight loss, particularly common after bariatric surgery.
The skin has lost its elasticity, and like a deflated balloon, the lax skin is slack and sagging. The only tightening procedure for large amounts of excess skin is an arm lift, or brachioplasty.
This is a common procedure for Dr. Galumbeck to perform.
