This 55-year old Virginia Beach woman has been bothered by large arms her entire life and she feels they are disproportionate to the rest of her body. It is a trait among women in her family, however she is looking for as much improvement as possible. Upon exam, she had significant fat accumulation in her arms. I explained the best result would be two stages of surgery, liposuction first, followed by removal of excess skin months later. With the first surgery I planned to use a newer liposuction technique that has the potential of shrinking the skin. With this method, Power Liposuction is performed and then followed by a Power cannula passed under the skin circumferentially around the arm to stimulate collagen production. She returned four months after this initial surgery so that we could plan her second stage of skin excision resulting in a long scar down her arms. At this point she was already extremely happy, as the skin had shrunk more than she expected. She decided not to proceed with the skin removal. Skin contraction cannot be totally predicted, but this certainly is more skin shrinkage than I would expect with traditional liposuction.

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
