Even after weight loss and exercise many people are left with excess fat that is hard to get rid of. This fat often collects around the hips, thighs, abdomen and upper arms. Upper arm fat—sometimes referred to as “bat wings” can be especially frustrating.
Epstein Plastic Surgery, located in Stony Brook, Long Island offers a new technology to address the “bat wing” phenomenon. Using a minimally invasive technique called LipoSelection VASER liposuction upper arm fat can be targeted and removed.
The state-of-the-art method effectively reduces subcutaneous fat and offers definition and contouring to otherwise difficult areas, “says Dr. Mark Epstein of VASER lipo.
VASER lipo is precise technology that essentially liquefies fat before suctioning it out. This advanced procedure, years in the making, is less painful and has a shorter recovery time than traditional liposuction.
By emulsifying the fatty tissue prior to extraction, aspiration can be performed with less tearing of the tissues. The VASER uses a specially designed aspiration cannulae to remove the emulsified fluids and minimize avulsion and other tissue trauma associated with standard devices.
“With this procedure the patient can expect definition in the arm that might be difficult to achieve with just exercise,” says Dr. Epstein. “It’s a targeted treatment that presents great results.”
