High definition sculpting goals of the arms varies between men and women.
High definition arm contouring requires emphasizing masculinity for men, as defined by strong biceps, prominent deltoids, and bulky triceps on the backside of the arm.
Men desire a "Popeye" looking arm with bulky muscles and a strong definition. In contrast, women want a sleek looking arm with light definition, but with the elimination of all underside fat and skin redundancy.
Whereas traditional liposuction could be used to remove underarm fat, it could not be used to sculpt the muscles, for example, by defining the anterior and posterior deltoid grooves. VASER technology now allows us to optimize arm contouring by providing the ability to create high definition arm results. Using VASER technology we have advanced liposuction regimens to treat the arms circumferentially and to define the deltoids, biceps, and triceps. Muscle girth is also maximized by utilizing optimal fat grafting techniques to add volume to the deltoids, biceps, and triceps. It is critical for your surgeon to have an intimate knowledge of muscle anatomy when performing high definition arm contouring.
The addition of the Renuvion skin tightening technology allows us to treat the excess skin on the underarms of patients and avoid potentially unattractive incision line scars following traditional Brachioplasty. Before Renuvion technology, most arm contouring patients were in the 40-50-year range, but now we are able to offer both older and younger patients arm contouring options that avoid the surgical incision lines of a Brachioplasty, i.e. arm tucking procedure. Older patients may not want invasive surgery, but they don’t want the stigma of saggy arms! Similarly, younger patients desire lean looking arms but want to avoid the stigma of surgical incision lines.
