SAFELipo Arms Case #213
This active, 40-year-old woman had persistent areas of excess fat in the upper arms, axillas (armpits) and shoulders despite exercising and dieting. Bothersome, genetically predetermined areas such as these, which are frequently seen on the arms, inner thighs and waist, can be effectively treated with SAFELipo™, usually without need for more extensive skin reduction procedures. This woman is shown 6 months after treatment of the circumferential arms, axillas and shoulders with SAFELipo. No skin needed removal, and she has no visible scars – something which was very important to her. The tremendous amount of skin retraction frequently seen with SAFELipo has made the need for brachioplasties (skin reduction of the arms) very rare in our plastic surgery practice in Louisiana.
