As we get older the spring and tautness of our skin diminish and regardless of our shape or weight, this can leave us with sagging arms, sometimes known as bingo wings. Our cosmetic consultants in Glasgow are delighted to offer surgical or non-surgical arm reduction treatments that can vastly improve how you feel.
Traditionally, an arm lift or brachioplasty operation was the only reliable way of reducing the size of the upper arms. It still gives the best results in terms of the amount of tissue removed but at the expense of a long scar, which can be difficult to hide.
At Elanic Clinic we are using Smart Lipo Triplex to remove fat from the arms whilst also causing some skin tightening. We have invested in the most advanced equipment available and are among only a handful of clinics in the whole of the UK to offer Smart Lipo Triplex Liposuction.
The advantage of using Smart Lipo Triplex is that it involves minimal scarring. However, in some patients, the skin of the arms has been so stretched that it can no longer contract and shrink after the fat has been removed and for these patients, surgical removal of the skin and fat is required.
For patients with lots of extra skin and fat, we are now increasingly combining Triplex treatment with surgical removal as the use of the laser reduces the length of the scar required and this new technique is becoming increasingly popular
