About Non Surgical Arm Lift in NYC

by Ramtin Kassir, M.D., F.A.C.S.

No matter what age you are, the triceps can be one of the toughest muscles to build. And on top of that, many women find that the back of their upper arms is the place fat love to accumulate the most! As we age, the problem becomes the sagging skin, which not even exercise can correct. Once the aging process or significant weight loss has left the skin sagging and stretched, the only way to achieve slender, toned arms is through surgery. But if you’re apprehensive about going under the knife, there are numerous nonsurgical methods to get your arms...and your confidence back!


What It Is:


A non surgical arm lift uses noninvasive or minimally invasive treatments in order to smooth and tighten the appearance of the upper arm.


Kassir Plastic Surgery Center uses a combines a PDO thread lift with a radio frequency treatment in order to give you maximum results.


How It Works:


PDO thread lifts are a popular technique throughout Europe, Asia and especially Korea. This procedure involves the use of sutures injected under the surface of the skin. Each thread has tiny barbs on it that latch onto the loose skin and delicate tissue in order to smooth and lift the area.


The procedure is normally done under local anesthesia or with the use of a topical numbing cream. This makes the treatment practically painless. As the fine-gauged needle pierces through the skin, the thread is inserted into the skin. The excess suture is cut flush against the skin, leaving it completely invisible.


There is minimal downtime with minor side effects. Bruising, swelling and mild pain may be experienced, but will dissipate in less than a week.


As the skin heals and sutures dissolve, the body produces collagen, which builds up over time and extends the length of the results. The sutures last anywhere from 4-6 months, but the effects of the treatment are able to be extended when paired with other treatments.


Combinations For Optimum Results:

We combine the radio frequency treatment, Thermage, with PDO thread lifts for ultimate collagen stimulation and cell turnover. Thermage not only smooths and tones the surface of the skin, but it also helps diminish fat. The radio frequency treatment also improves the skin’s texture and tone by removing imperfections, reducing redness and scarring, and erasing the appearance of stretchmarks.
