I have fat fairly evenly dispersed all over my body but it is really only the arms that I care about. I would like liposuction on my upper arms. I am 67 years old. Do you think that the skin will retract and tighten?
The SlimLipo procedure is a wonderful procedure that exceeds the expectation of my patients. I spend a great deal of time with my patients so that they understand not only what SlimLipo can do for them, but, in many cases, what SlimLipo or any other liposuction procedure cannot accomplish. Although SlimLipo will definitely tighten the skin surrounding the area that fat was removed, there are definite limitations. It is not a procedure that is a substitute for surgical excision of skin if you are really a candidate for the brachioplasty procedure. SlimLipo will definitely help tighten the areas if loose skin is not the only issue and it is more of an issue of fat in your upper arms accompanied by some excess skin.
