Known as a brachioplasty, an arm lift is a surgical procedure that reshapes the under portion of the upper arm from the underarm region to the elbow. It is performed to reduce excess sagging skin that droops downward and tighten the underlying support tissue that defines the shape of the arm.
Dr. Jack Peterson performs various body surgery procedures, including the abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”), the Brazilian Butt-Lift and the thigh-lift to treat areas where sagging tissue, stubborn fat and stretched-out skin persist after significant weight loss or as a result of getting older.
But there’s another body area that is often affected by significant weight loss, aging and genetics: the upper arms. When the arms are affected by these factors, the result can be flabby arms, also known as “bat wings.” But this doesn’t mean you’re sentenced to a life of buying long-sleeved shirts or shirts that are too big so your arms fit. There are options.
In addition to performing lift procedures on other body areas, Dr. Peterson performs the brachioplasty or arm-lift procedure, too.
BodyTite™ is a new sophisticated technology that will revolutionize facial and body contouring by achieving surgical results with minimum scar or the extended recovery time. It accomplishes these significant, long-lasting results in a single procedure utilizing radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) which melts the fat and unparalleled contraction of the dermis and underlying connective tissue.
Now, patients have an option to excisional surgery (such as a tummy tuck or arm lift) which leaves visible scars and requires a longer downtime. The answer for many patients will be found using the BodyTite system which provides a safe and minimally invasive procedure.
While procedures such as breast implants, liposuction and tummy tucks are popular for women who want to improve their shape, buttock-enhancement procedures have also increased in popularity in the last decade.
Buttock-lift procedures can reshape the buttocks and can give you the curves you want, a better fit for your clothing and more self-confidence about your body.
Dr. Peterson offers patients seeking to improve the appearance of the buttocks two options:
Buttock-Lift: The buttock-lift procedure, also called a gluteal-lift, is typically ideal for individuals who have lost buttock volume and/or tone and have sagging or loose excess skin in the buttock region. Common causes of this include aging, significant weight fluctuations, massive weight loss, prolonged sun and genetics. Learn more about the surgical buttock-lift here.
The Brazilian Butt-Lift (BBL): The BBL is a fat-grafting procedure designed to use excess, unwanted fat from another body area to add volume and shape to the buttocks.
If you want to feel great about how your butt looks, Dr. Peterson can help. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, his skill and experience in performing the butt-lift procedure have helped many men and women feel confident about their bodies once again.
Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jack Peterson, offers patients seeking to enhance their buttocks two different procedures to achieve their body goals: the surgical buttock-lift and the non-surgical Brazilian Butt-Lift (BBL).
While both procedures are popular, many patients ask about which procedure would be the most beneficial for achieving the look they desire for their buttocks.
Buttock Lift: The buttock-lift procedure, also called a gluteal-lift, is typically ideal for individuals who have lost buttock volume and/or tone and have sagging or loose excess skin in the buttock region. Common causes of this include aging, significant weight fluctuations, massive weight loss, prolonged sun and genetics.
Brazilian Butt-Lift (BBL): The BBL is a fat-grafting procedure designed to use excess, unwanted fat from another body area to add volume and shape to the buttocks. Learn more about the BBL here.
Want to resculpt your body? Consider liposuction surgery!
Liposuction is a body-sculpting plastic surgery procedure designed to reshape your curves. Dr. Jack Peterson is a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience in liposuction and other cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures.
Dr. Peterson performs a type of liposuction known as tumescent liposuction to help patients who are near their ideal weight sculpt away stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
A lower body lift combines several procedures to achieve results desired after massive weight loss. Each procedure is customized for every patient’s needs. Not only will a lower body lift improve your appearance but it can also improve your ability to move more freely and exercise more comfortably. Not to mention the enormous confidence boost!
Losing weight can mean many positive changes in your life! You look better, you feel better and your clothes fit better in most instances. But weight loss can also bring new challenges as your body adjusts to its new size.
One of those challenges is loose, sagging skin in the thigh area. If this is your experience after significant weight loss or aging, Dr. Jack Peterson can help you achieve your body goals with a thigh lift procedure.
Thigh lift surgery is designed to reshape the thighs by surgically removing excess skin and fat, which leaves your thighs smooth, firm and better proportioned to your body.
Significant weight loss, aging and other factors can also affect the buttocks. Many patients who undergo thigh-lift procedures also choose to combine their procedure with a Brazilian Butt Lift treatment at the same time to restore lost volume and shape to the buttocks area.
