If you’re looking for a way to improve the appearance of your arms without the fear of visible scars, a scar-less arm lift procedure may be the answer. In this article, we’ll explore what this innovative procedure entails, its benefits, and how it compares to traditional arm lift surgery.
Are your upper arms loose and saggy?
Does the thought of going “Sleeveless” fill you with anxiety and dread?
Also referred to as “Bat Wings” or “Bingo Wings,” loose upper arms can affect both men and women and are usually caused by extreme weight gain or loss. Or genetics. Or they may be a part of the aging process. But younger patients can be affected, too!
Whatever the cause, wouldn’t you love it if your upper arms didn’t swing back and forth with every movement?
Wouldn’t you like to wear tank tops now and again?
Now you can.
You can develop smaller and firmer upper arms by choosing a new technology that is hitting the cosmetic surgery circuits.
This scar-less alternative to the arm lift will give you enviable arms in as little as a single appointment, with no scarring required.
A Scar-less Arm Lift? How Does That Work?
Known as Renuvion, the procedure works like this:
Your cosmetic surgeon wields a hand-held device that emits a highly controlled burst of energy at the affected source.
The technology uses what is called J-Plasma, which is a mixture of helium gas and radiofrequency energy.
This produces what is known as “Cold Plasma,” which is produced when the helium gas becomes energized by the radiofrequency energy.
Since helium gas is quite stable, it can be ionized at low energy levels to enable a targeted and predictable delivery.
The J-Plasma heats the tissues underneath the skin, causing the tissues to contract.
At the same time, the helium gas cools the surrounding tissues so that they remain untouched.
What you are left with is firmer upper arms with no visible scarring afterward.
The technology was originally developed to remove lesions and tumors. But cosmetic researchers were surprised to find that it also produced cellular rejuvenation.
Sadly, only a few surgeons offer this technology at this time.
Dr. Moein of Moein Surgical Arts is one of the first, which means you now have a chance to experience this cutting-edge cosmetic body contouring procedure at one of three locations in Los Angeles, Glendale, and Encino, California.
How Does a Scar-less Arm Lift Compare to a Traditional Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?
During a traditional arm lift procedure, your cosmetic body contouring surgeon will administer a local anesthetic to numb your upper arm.
This step ensures your comfort throughout the procedure.
Your surgeon will then make an incision on the inside of your upper arm.
The incision typically runs from the elbow to the armpit.
The excess skin will be cut away, and, in most cases, the surgeon will combine the surgery with liposuction to remove excess pockets of fat.
The surgeon will then reposition and tighten the underlying muscle tissue.
Following surgery, your surgeon will recommend that you wait for up to two weeks before returning to work.
You should avoid heavy lifting for at least a month. This rest period is necessary for allowing the upper arm area and surrounding tissues to heal.
Renuvion isn’t like a traditional arm lift at all.
There is an incision, but it is incredibly small and will be hidden within the natural contours of your body.
Your surgeon will insert the hand-held device into the opening created by the incision to emit the energy necessary for the skin-tightening to take effect. With just a few passes, you will notice instant results, with full results realized in six to nine months.
After your Renuvion appointment, you may feel some discomfort around the surrounding area, but you’ll be able to return to work in just one to three days. The best part? The scar from the minuscule incision will be barely noticeable in just a few months.
The procedure leaves you with a firming and toning effect on the upper arms without scarring, which was previously impossible.
Who is a Good Candidate for the Scar-less Arm Lift?
If you have moderate sagging or loose skin on your upper arms, you might be an excellent candidate for a Renuvion Scar-less Arm Lift. However, if you have a large amount of excess skin on your upper arm from extreme weight loss, for example, a traditional arm lift might be a better solution.
A qualified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Moein of Moein Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, CA can consult with you to determine if you are a good candidate for Scar-less arm Lift.
Other Benefits of the Scar-less Arm Lift
While an incision is made, the Renuvion procedure is considered minimally invasive. There is also no scarring.
As if that weren’t enough, you will experience immediate skin tightening on and around the upper arm.
Compared to other cosmetic body contouring procedures, you will experience very little swelling and bruising. The procedure only takes around 30 to 45 minutes, and there is minimal downtime and little discomfort or pain.
The most amazing benefit is the surge of confidence you can experience with the Renuvion procedure.
In some cases, the scar-less arm lift can be combined with other procedures like traditional liposuction or HD lipo to remove excess fat, giving you even more impressive contours.
You may even find yourself wearing tank tops to show off your new and improved arms.
In fact, many patients report that their clothing options improve immensely with this short but amazing cosmetic surgical procedure.
How Much Does a Scar-less Arm Lift Cost?
The cost of Renuvion varies, but the average cost is anywhere between $5K and $9K.
This makes it more affordable than treatments like the traditional arm lift.
The costs may increase if you have more areas treated or you require more passes due to excessive skin laxity.

Disclaimer: The FDA has not approved using Renuvion for cosmetic use. The FDA has approved Renuvion for coagulation of tissue only. The specific advanced use of this new technology for skin tightening still remains investigational.
The off-label use of Renuvion is only suitable for specific groups of patients with minimal skin laxity. Many devices initially have general use approval, and, with time, the expanded indications are approved to popularize usage.
If you are a suitable candidate for Renuvion, Dr. Moein will discuss this information with you to ensure your understanding and comprehension before opting for the Renuvion procedure.
