The term scalpel-free or bloodless brachioplasty refers to the tightening of the arm area without the surgical dermolipectomy that takes place in traditional brachioplasty. The method is performed using the Smartlipo Laser Lipolysis laser and has excellent results in selected patients.
A suitable candidate for lipolysis with the Smartlipo Laser method is one who has excess fat in the arm area without severe sagging. Bloodless brachioplasty is performed under local anesthesia only, a small, invisible hole is made in the back of the arm and through this hole a xylocaine solution is injected into the subcutaneous fat. The laser fiber then enters the subcutaneous tissue and serves a dual purpose. It melts and liquefies the excess fat and through the specific wavelength it achieves tightening and neocollagenesis in the arm area. With this method we can get the results of an arm lift without the hassle of surgery and the scars it leaves.
