Learn more about how CoolSculpting could help your arms look more youthful and toned.
Where Did My Flabby Arms Come From?
Before you can understand why CoolSculpting can help address those flabby arms, it’s important to know how you got them in the first place. For some, genetics plays a factor in how much fat will collect in the upper arms and how elastic the skin will be as you age. The aging process breaks down the collagen that gives the skin its firmness and elasticity, so bat wings are sometimes an unavoidable consequence. Fluctuations in weight can also play a role, especially if you have lost a significant amount of weight quickly.
What Is CoolSculpting?
There are many surgical methods through which patients can address their concerns about fatty deposits in the upper arms and elsewhere on the body. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary new way to banish fat cells permanently without needles, incisions, and long recovery times. CoolSculpting works by applying special cold temperatures that will only freeze fat cells without harming surrounding tissues and skin cells. Once these fat cells are frozen, they will die and get flushed from the body gradually. While it is not yet proven, many patients report that CoolSculpting also helps to firm their skin as the fat cells are removed gradually over a period of several weeks to four months.
How Does CoolSculpting Help Flabby Arms?
CoolSculpting is an ideal choice for many prospective patients looking to remove pockets of fat cells from the upper arms. Your procedure can be performed without anesthetics and with only minimal discomfort as the tissue of your arms is pulled between two cooling panels. The cold temperatures will be applied via these panels as you relax with a book, work on a laptop, or just take a light nap. Your results will emerge slowly as the dead fat cells are slowly metabolized and flushed from the body. You may also see some of your loose skin tighten, but you will need to have an arm lift procedure to help with large amounts of sagging skin. On average, CoolSculpting can remove around 20% of fat cells from the treatment area. If you’re hoping to achieve more dramatic results, talk with your plastic surgeon about follow-up treatments or additional liposuction procedures.
