Fixing Flabby Arms After Weight Loss

Fixing Flabby Arms After Weight Loss

Flabby arms are common after weight loss as a result of excess fat deposits and laxity of the muscle and soft tissue fascia. There are several procedures available to address flabby arms, including many which are non surgical. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a specialist plastic surgeon who performs surgical brachioplasty (armlift) surgery and liposuction; as well as non-surgical Coolsculpting to Freeze the Fat, Exilis Elite to tighten loose skin, Ultherapy to tone loose soft tissue, and Liposonix to eliminate pockets of excess fat. 

"Brachioplasty and liposuction are surgical procedures to reduce sagging arm skin and contour the upper arms," says Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian. Not all patients are candidates for surgical arm lifting, and non-surgical tissue tightening are excellent for those patients who desire minimal downtime and recovery.
