What are bat wings?
You may have heard people talk about hiding their bat wings, particularly when choosing what clothing to wear on a warm day. This is a reference to hanging fat and loose skin on the upper arms that creates a flabby or sagging appearance. Some of the most common causes of loose skin on the arms include:
Extreme weight loss
Traditionally, liposuction and/or surgical arm lift (brachioplasty) were the only reliable treatment options for reducing hanging arm skin and stubborn fat. However, arm lift surgery can be fairly extensive, requiring a lengthy recovery period and prominently visible scarring. Fortunately, the development of BodyTite by InMode has revolutionized the arm tightening process and now allows patients to achieve slimmer, firmer, more attractive arms without the need for extended downtime or visible scarring.
How does BodyTite for arms work?
BodyTite is an FDA-approved treatment option for removing fat and tightening loose skin in a single step. During BodyTite in Shreveport, which can be performed under local anesthesia, Dr. Sanders will make a tiny incision in the arm through which the BodyTite applicator is inserted. Next, radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) will work to dislodge stubborn fat cells, making them easier to remove than with traditional liposuction. Simultaneously, the heat-based energy delivered to the area will stimulate tissue remodeling and skin tightening for stunning, visible improvements. In some cases, a series of BodyTite treatments will be required to achieve your desired outcome.
Do I need arm lift or BodyTite?
BodyTite offers a number of compelling benefits for patients seeking an alternative to extensive plastic surgery, including:
Can be performed under local anesthesia
Quicker recovery than cosmetic surgery
Virtually no visible scarring
Typically more affordable than extensive surgical procedures
Offers stunning, long-lasting results
However, patients with a significant amount of hanging skin or pronounced skin laxity may be better suited for traditional arm lift and/or liposuction to correct bat wings. During your initial consultation for BodyTite in Shreveport, Dr. Sanders will evaluate your remaining skin elasticity, assess the severity of your concerns, discuss your ideal result, and determine whether minimally invasive BodyTite or traditional arm lift may be most appropriate for you.
