An arm lift is commonly performed alongside similar surgeries that reduce excess tissue to create a toned, youthful appearance. Liposuction may be combined with your arm lift or used to further sculpt your body. Dr. Murphy is well experienced in the many different forms of liposuction offered at Pearwood Plastic Surgery.
This form of liposuction is very popular and has been used for over three decades. Allowing plenty of time for it to be tweaked and improved. Tumescent liposuction begins with a solution of lidocaine, saline, and epinephrine being injected into the subcutaneous fat layer of your treatment area. The tumescent fluid swells and firms the fat, allowing it to be easily removed and reduce blood loss. This solution eliminates the need for sedation and helps to shorten your recovery time.
PAL implements a specialized cannula (a thin hollow tube) that moves on its own to remove fat more precisely. One of the problems with traditional liposuction is that it requires the surgeon to remove the fat in a repetitive wrist move. This movement becomes tiring after a while as well as causes trauma to surrounding tissue. PAL removes fat efficiently and is better for the surrounding tissues than a traditional procedure.
UAL is a revolutionary form of liposuction. This technique administers tumescent fluids first. After the application of the fluid, UAL utilizes a special cannula that emits ultrasound energy. This energy fluctuates the air bubbles in the tumescent solution. These bubbles agitate fat cells and gently remove them from the tissue they are attached to. This process helps remove fat in a precise form while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissue.
This form of liposuction uses laser technology to liquefy fat cells. A small laser is inserted into the treatment area and will remove your desired fat deposit. The laser will help remove fat as well as tighten your skin. This treatment will help provide a slimmer, tighter result.
Liposuction uses miniscule incisions and can occur virtually anywhere on the body. This procedure removes unnecessary fat to provide you with an ideal, slim body. Ask Dr. Murphy about your options to combine liposuction with an arm lift.
