How to Get Great Arms This Short Sleeve Season

Plastic Surgery Phoenix Arizona


Because fat can stubbornly cling to the upper arms, you may notice that even a healthy lifestyle is insufficient to slim your arms. If diet and exercise do not get the job done, liposuction can help by suctioning out excess fat cells and creating nicer contours. You will need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks, so you should expect to postpone those trips to the pool until the healing process is complete. Fortunately, the results are considered permanent as long as you maintain a steady weight in the future, so you should be able to continue enjoying the benefits for many summers to come.

Arm Lift

Meanwhile, if the main problem with your arms is the loose skin that hangs from your upper arms, a lift procedure may be the best solution. Diet and exercise can burn calories, but they cannot do anything to change loose skin, which makes surgery the only real option for improving this problem.

To perform arm lift, Dr. Genaro Valladolid makes an incision that hides well along the underarm so that he can remove the excess skin and create upper arms that look trimmer and firmer. Patients generally take a week or two off from work to recover from this surgery. Results are long-lasting, but eventually the aging process can make the skin sag again.


If the sound of a full plastic surgery is more than you are looking for, you may be a good candidate for Renuvion. This is a less-invasive procedure that relies on radiofrequency and helium plasma to tighten the skin by heating subdermal tissue. Since this procedure stimulates collagen production, the results continue to improve in the months that follow. You may choose to combine Renuvion with liposuction to maximize your results for great-looking arms.
