Wings That Won’t Help You Fly: Getting Rid of Arm Fat

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to fly? If only humans were born with wings. Unfortunately, the only wings that you may ever have are less than attractive and won’t help you fly. These are called “bat wings” and refer to excess fat and skin of the upper arms. Brachioplasty can get rid of upper arm fat and skin to improve the tone and shape of your upper arms.

Who Can Benefit From Brachioplasty?

Fat Dissolving Injections Vs Liposuction
“Bat wings” most often develop for massive weight-loss patients. Skin that has been stretched due to excess weight does not revert to its original tightness and firmness after weight loss. Therefore, weight-loss patients will often have sagging upper arm skin. Other individuals may develop “bat wings” due to the natural ageing process, which causes skin laxity and the storage of localised fat in the upper arm area. Brachioplasty can eliminate “bat wing deformity” and create a more toned arm shape with no sign of unnatural wings.

What to Expect and What You’ll Achieve

First, Dr Zoumaras will perform liposuction to remove excess fat from the upper arms. Then, he will excise the remaining fat and skin to correct the shape and contour of the arms. Dr Zoumaras helps to conceal the surgical scar by placing the incision in the bicipital groove. After a period of recovery, patients can expect their arms to look more natural. You may not ever have the ability to fly, but with brachioplasty, you can reverse the negative effects of ageing or massive weight loss and achieve beautifully contoured upper arms.

Elimination of “bat wings” through brachioplasty will make your arms look more attractive, natural, and shapely. Schedule your consultation with Dr Zoumaras by calling 02 9327 1700 or by filling out our online contact form today.
