Our 31-year-old female patient came to Aristocrat with excess skin and fat in her upper arm region. The condition can affect women especially as a result of weight loss surgery or due to advancing age. It is not uncommon for women to have excess fat in the upper arm that’s difficult to reduce, even with exercise, and the large amount of skin drooping from the upper arms is what some refer to as “bat-wings.” From her consultation with Dr. Kevin Tehrani, our patient underwent a brachioplasty — or arm lift. It’s a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arm region. It’s often performed in combination with liposuction.
Our patient underwent 6 Emsculpt Neo treatments on her arms to give them more tone and definition. Emsculpt Neo is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that harnesses the powers of radio frequency (RF) and high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to simultaneously tone muscle and melt fat. It causes rapid muscle contractions that build muscle fibers to improve strength and tone. The results for our patient were subtle yet visible, showing the kind of tone and definition she wanted.
