Arm Lift: Brachioplasty

Are you struggling with loose skin and access fat underneath your arms? With an arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, Dr. Tahernia can remove this loose skin from the upper arm to create a more refined and toned look. Patients that have lost a massive amount of weight will usually require an arm lift due to the excess of skin left behind. For some people, fat pockets in the upper arms are due to genetics and will simply not go away with diet and exercise alone. Having loose hanging skin and an excess of fat can cause people to feel self conscious and limit a person’s clothing options.

Dr. Tahernia would be happy to meet with you to discuss your arm lift options and the factors that go into being a good surgical candidate. You can set up your consultation by calling our office at 310-614-9701, or request an appointment online.

Arm Lift Techniques:

As each patient has their own individual needs, Dr. Tahernia will customize your arm lift surgery to cater to your aesthetic goals for the procedure. A patient seeking an arm lift may undergo one or more of the below techniques used for a brachioplasty:

Arm Liposuction - For patients that have good elasticity in their skin, they may be able to have liposuction performed on their arms to remove the excess fat. With this procedure, Beverly Hills patients will see a great improvement, but not as much as they would if the skin was completely removed.

Mini Arm Lift - Patients are good candidate for this technique if the excess skin and fat they want to get rid of is located only in the upper part of the arm. This technique also involves less scarring because there is a smaller incision.

Elbow Lift - Less commonly, patients may also suffer from an excess of skin and fat directly above or below their elbow. Patients of this type can benefit from a combined arm and elbow lift while preserving their range of motion.

Elbow to Armpit Lift - Dr. Tahernia will make an incision from the elbow to the armpit to achieve improvement. In most cases, this procedure is combined with liposuction for optimal results.

Arm & Armpit Lifts - As people fluctuate in weight or as people age, the skin on the upper arm begins to sag. Due to lose in elasticity in the skin, the skin can hang low even from the armpits causing a decrease in confidence and limits in what to wear. Using a combined technique of an arm and armpit lift, Dr. Tahernia can get optimal results.

Body Lift: Post Bariatric Body Contouring

Body lift surgery is a procedure used to tighten the skin of a patient all over their body. Typically after weight loss, a large amount of excess skin is left behind that will drag a person down and having them not completely feel the results of their weight loss. A body lift can transform a person’s body back to a normal appearance so that they can truly enjoy the effects of weight loss.

If you are ready to take control of your life and body, then call our Beverly Hills office at 310-614-9701, or request a consultation online.

Body Contouring After Bariatric Surgery

After undergoing surgical weight loss such as bariatric surgery, patients are left with an unflattering shape and unsculpted contours. Even with rigorous diet and exercise the person will be able to tone their body because of a loss in skin elasticity. This excess skin can cause the breasts to flatten, skin on the abdomen to hang below the belt line, and make skin on the arm and thighs sag. Body lift surgery will help in shaping the body by removing an excess of fat and skin and then tightening the remaining skin. Dr. Tahernia is able to give his patients beautiful results that are immediately apparent. However, the results will continue to develop and improve over the course of a year. The results of the procedure are long lasting and can be maintained by the patient easily if the follow a healthy diet and exercise plan.

Body Lift Techniques:

In some cases, a patient may not need a complete body lift and an upper or lower body lift alone will suffice. The lower body lift is the most common for patients after weight loss to seek out. A lower body lift will normally include a tummy tuck and buttocks lift that is performed simultaneously. The incision is then concealed around the waist line so that a scar will not be visible in a bikini. Patients that suffer from extreme skin laxity in the upper torso will be most benefited by an upper body lift. During an upper body lift an upper abdominoplasty and a bra line back lift are performed together to achieve the optimal results. However, each technique is individualized to the patient dependant on their needs.

Liposuction: Liposculpture

The liposuction procedure is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the United States. Many Beverly Hills men and women are unable to shed unwanted fat with diet and exercise alone and will seek out liposuction to have the contours of their body refined to meet their desires. Dr. Tahernia will selectively remove fat from the body that is loosely attached, leaving nerves, blood vessels and skin mostly intact.

If you are unhappy with stubborn fat located on your face, neck, abdomen, buttocks or other trouble starts, Dr. Tahernia would be happy to meet with you and discus your liposuction options. Call our office to set up your consultation at 310-614-9701, or you can request your appointment online.

Liposuction Techniques:

There are a variety of different techniques that are used for liposuction. Dr. Tahernia will discuss with you which technique is best to meet your cosmetic aesthetic goals. Each technique has its advantages and disadvantages over each other, but Dr. Tahernia will ensure that you can make an informed decision. Some liposuction techniques include:

Tumescent Liposuction - This liposuction technique uses a dilute local anesthetic solution that is composed of lidocaine and epinephrine which can treat the fat regions before the liposuction is performed. As the tumescent solution acts as an anesthetic, there is no need for general anesthesia making this procedure safer over traditional liposuction. This procedure also minimizes the amount of blood loss as the epinephrine in the solution constricts blood vessels temporarily.

Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) - PAL uses a vibrating cannula tio that can gently break up fat and suction it away in one step making it a more efficient liposuction technique. The fact that the cannula is vibrating also allows for it to easily move through fatty layers using a minimal amount of force. Dr. Tahernia can use the more efficient method giving him more precision and control, while allowing him to focus on sculpting a beautiful figure.

Laser-Assisted Liposuction - Using a small laser, Dr. Tahernia is able to melt away unwanted fat. Often times, this technique is performed in conjunction with tumescent liposuction for optimal results. The small laser allows for a higher accuracy and also allows for a Dr. Tahernia to treat hard to reach places.

A tummy tuck should not be considered as a weight loss alternative and is optimal for patients close to their goal weight and looking to tighten their contours.

Dr. Tahernia can then redistribute the upper abdominal skin over the entire abdomen for the tightened appearance. Lastly, the doctor will create a new belly button in the tightened skin and tighten the pubic area below. Results of a tummy tuck can vary from patient to patient and it is important that you find a doctor that is skilled in abdominoplsaty to achieve the most optimal results.
