Upper Arms: Non-Invasively getting rid of “wings”
Non-surgical upper arm fat injections
As women age, the fat along their upper arm begins to sag. The answer is the past to this insecurity for women has been to get a brachioplasty, or an arm lift. But today, we’re injecting Kybella into fat cells in the upper arm to get rid of unwanted fat that hangs down. By injecting Kybella into small isolated pockets of fat, we can get rid of the unwanted fat non-invasively.
How Kybella can burn upper arm fat
Kybella breaks down fat cells permanently. Kybella is an injectable that has almost no downtime with minimal side effects. Depending on how much the patient would like to reduce the size of the upper arm fat, they may need to come in for multiple treatments to get all of the targeted area. Depending on the size of the injection site, the treatment could take anywhere from 20-30 minutes.
Reduce arm fat with Kybella injections
The effects of Kybella injections are permanent. Kybella destroys fat cells immediately and they’re absorbed by the body. These fat cells do not return. If you were to gain weight, you could still see the effects of Kybella if you lost the weight again. It may take multiple treatments to get the look you desire.
Am I a good candidate for upper arm fat injections?
Kybella works best on patients with mild to moderate amounts of upper arm fat. This is a difficult area to target with diet and exercise alone. Kybella injections doesn’t tighten skin cells under the arm, so if you are someone who recently lost weight, this treatment won’t get rid of excess skin on the upper arm.
What you can expect post-op
