Upper arm fat is a common concern among both men and women as they tend to age. In fact, the excess skin and fat between the underarms and elbow can be really inconvenient for people, who wish to wear sleeveless clothes. Flabby arm fat that are caused by factors such as extreme weight loss, heredity and aging most often do not respond to even rigorous diet and exercise programs. BodyTite Arm Liposuction is a perfect option for men and women who wish to achieve a trimmer and firmer arm. The procedure provides excellent results – with no incisions, unsightly scars, or long downtime. 

When compared to traditional liposuction, the minimally-invasive BodyTite™ on arms (ArmTite) melts the stubborn fat pockets and reshapes arms. Performed by utilizing the patented RAFL (radiofrequency - assisted lipolysis) platform, the procedure helps liquefy stubborn fat cells and gently remove the targeted fat from the body. It coagulates the blood vessels and encourages the production of new collagen by improving the skins texture. Some of the common benefits of BodyTite Armsinclude - 

  • Short downtime
  • Minimal pain, swelling, bruising and bleeding
  • Performed as an outpatient procedure
  • Performed under local tumescent anesthesia
  • Quick recovery
  • Re-contouring effects are immediately visible

The BodyTite arm lift is a suitable option for patients who – 

  • Have loose, crepe-like skin in the inner arm area (near the arm pit)
  • Are above 18 years of age
  • Are non-smokers
  • Good general health, without any underlying medical conditions
  • Have a healthy body weight

What the Procedure Involves?

BodyTite Arm lift uses bipolar radiofrequency technology for superior skin tightening effects. The device features two parallel probes, one that passes below the skin and the other that passes directly above the skin. The radiofrequency energy passes between the two probes, melting fat on the inside while simultaneously causing skin to tighten and giving it a perfect shape. 

The procedure starts with the plastic surgeon administering local anesthesia to the patient. The surgeon will further mark the area in the arm to be treated. A tiny incision is made in to the arm to insert the small cannula used for BodyTite treatment. The RF energy delivered via the cannula gently liquefies the unwanted fat cells, allowing them to be gently suctioned out. 

Generally, performed on an outpatient basis, the liposuction procedure approximately takes up to 30-45 minutes. This would again vary and depend on the specific area treated and other associated individual considerationsThe procedure simultaneously tightens the skin and coagulates the tissues, which helps the surgeon sculpt the arms to achieve the ideal shape. 

As the procedure involves minimal surgical trauma and downtime, it allows most patients to return to normal activities within 48 hours. However, the recovery time and results will vary based on the specific body area treated and the amount of fat removed. The best results are generally visible after 6-12 weeks after completion of the procedure.
