Patient reviews are very helpful when deciding on a plastic surgery procedure and surgeon. People want to see positive proof of a surgeon’s expertise. Before and after photos will give you an idea of the results you can expect. Leading Manhattan plastic surgeon and medical director of bodySCULPT in NYC, Dr. Spero Theodorou is an expert in performing a wide variety of cosmetic surgical procedures.
Dr Theodorou had performed BodyTite scarless arm lift on a 27-year-old patient, Daniela. Daniela had shared her previous experience dealing with unwanted skin under her arm. Now after her successful surgery, Daniela shared her experience about getting that stubborn fat (or batwings) removed.
Here’s what she had to say:
“I try to always have some sort of sleeves so my arms aren’t fully exposed now that I’m getting older it’s harder to work out that exact area so I’m really excited to have this procedure done and I could be more comfortable in my own clothes. Even if I do diet and exercise, I mean, If I do like a really a hard core diet my arms will be a little flabby and it’s hard to exercise in that part specifically because it takes a longer time it’s just harder now that I’m older to have my arms more toned.”
When Daniela came to bodySCULPT for her procedure, Dr. Theodorou determined that Daniela would be a good candidate for BodyTite on Arms because no matter how much weight she lost, her arms would always be fuller. She could not get rid the fat from her arms with just exercise and she also had loose skin. The surgeon then performed the scarless arm lift procedure on the whole upper arm of this patient (not just on the under part).
What the Procedure Involves
The scarless arm lift in NYC begins with the patient being administered local anesthesia to numb the site. As the procedure requires only local anesthesia, Daniela was awake and talked with the surgeon as the procedure was being performed. Also, as it involved minimal down time and she didn’t have much pain, she could lift her arms and felt normal too, twenty minutes post-procedure.
The results were noticeable after six weeks. Daniela was happy with the outcomes and said that the people she met noticed the change in her arms, like the definition and how they had shrunk.
Here’s what she had to say about her current experience, six weeks after the surgery: “It’s been six week since my underarm liposuction and I feel great and confident the people that I see the most like my family have definitely noticed the change in my arms like the definition and just how much they shrunk. The day after the surgery I thought I was going to be in a lot more pain than I was, it wasn’t that bad just lifting my arms up it wasn’t anything drastic that I couldn’t handle. It was a little numb for a couple of days after the stiches came out I was totally fine and didn’t have aware. I ‘m excited for the summer time to be wearing bathing suits and showing off my arms. Before I used to feel not so confident but now I’m excited I feel great”.
Arm Lift Before and After Photos
Two years after the procedure, Daniela shared a current photo of her smooth, scarless and toned arms.
Daniela recommends the procedure for women who have self-esteem issues, as it would make them feel really confident about their body.
BodyTite on arms is a “gap” procedure for many patients for whom liposuction alone may not provide the desired results, but are not severe enough for traditional arm lift surgery. It takes approximately 30-45 minutes, though this would depend on the extent of the area treated and other individual considerations. The procedure improves sagging, wrinkled skin with less downtime and provides long-lasting, attractive results – with no scars.
In 2018, Harper’s Bazaar filmed Dr. Spero Theodorou, the leading Manhattan plastic surgeon and medical director of bodySCULPT, performing BodyTite on Arms on this 27-year-old patient, Daniela. The video of the patient undergoing BodyTite on Arms was published on September 20, 2018 in Harper’s Bazaar’s The Plastics, an inside look at personal stories about going under the knife.
