This Scar-less Procedure Gives You Firmer Arms in 30-45 Minutes With Minimal Downtime!

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 simply be a part of the aging process. But younger patients can be affected, too!

Whatever the cause, wouldn’t you love 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, no scarring required.

A Scarless 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 miniscule incision will be barely noticeable in just a few months.

The procedure leaves you a firming and toning effect on the upper arms, without scarring, which was previously impossible.

Who is a Good Candidate for the Scarless Arm Lift?

If you have moderate sagging or loose skin on your upper arms, you might be an excellent candidate for a Renuvion Scarless Arm Lift.

However, if you have a large amount of excessive 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 can consult with you to determine if you are a good candidate for this non-surgical procedure.

Other Benefits of the Scarless 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 scarless 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 Scarless 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.

If you want a more accurate estimate of the costs you can expect to pay for a Renuvion Scarless Arm Lift, contact an experienced cosmetic body contouring surgeon like Dr. Moein of Moein Surgical Arts.

The Arm Lift Process

Are you too busy staring at the sagging skin under your arm to feel confident? Are you struggling with diets and weight loss programs, to no avail? Have you been searching for the right doctor for an arm lift, but don’t know who to trust? Look no further — Moein Surgical Arts provides top quality arm lift procedures that will have you enjoying your new shape before you know it.

What Is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift is a surgical procedure that tightens the supportive tissue in the upper arm by removing excess skin and reducing any unwanted fat. Adding shape to the arm enhances the arm’s appearance, making you look younger and fit.

Oftentimes, traditional exercise and dieting don’t always help us get the shape we desire, which is where an arm lift comes in. When we gain weight, the skin accommodates by stretching to fit our shape and ends up losing some of its natural elasticity. When that weight is shed, excess skin remains, and you are left with the irrefutable sag of skin under your arm. At Moein Surgical Arts we take care of this baggage and get your arms back into the shape you desire.

What to Expect

Before the procedure begins, patients will meet with Dr. Moein to determine the specific incision that is right for them. Based on their desired outcome and body type, Dr. Moein will discuss the possibility of other procedures used in conjunction with the arm lift, such as liposuction, to remove excess fat. After this consultation, patients will schedule their surgical appointment.

To guarantee maximum comfort, the patient will be put under regular anesthesia. An incision is then made by Dr. Moein to remove the excess skin.

Is It Safe?

Moein Surgical Arts is here to help you get the best arm lift experience, which is why we focus on providing extra care in our post-surgical procedure. To ensure you heal properly, Dr. Moein will keep you under the care of his staff for a determined amount of time. There may be some discomfort after the procedure, but nothing more than some minor bruising or swelling. In order to guarantee the best results, the patient will be scheduled a check-up appointment. At that time, Dr. Moein will go over the results and make sure you are getting exactly what you need in your recovery process.

Is an Arm Lift Right For Me?

The best candidate for Dr. Moein’s arm lift procedure is anyone looking to exchange their drooping arm skin, for tighter, smoother arms. There are many causes of sagging skin — drastic weight change, genetics, and old age can all affect the skin’s elasticity. This elasticity decrease cannot always be fixed with exercise and dieting alone, and, with genetics, it may even be an inevitable part of your body composition. If you are a healthy individual without any severe medical conditions that may be affected by surgery, and obtain positive outlook, an arm lift with Moein Surgical Arts is for you.


Though there may be some minor swelling following the procedure, the tighter, smoother skin results are almost immediately noticeable. The droop will have disappeared, and you are left with more confidence and a new you.

It is important that the patient follows Dr. Moein’s plan of recovery process to ensure the best results and maximum healing. Patients should expect to lose some firmness as they age, but overall the procedure is permanent. Of course, general exercise and maintaining a healthy weight will help you retain your new physique as well.

How Long Does it Take to Recover from an Arm Lift?

With the New Year rapidly approaching, it is time to start envisioning all that comes with it. For some that means setting up their annual New Year’s resolutions, but for others it is a clean slate and a chance to pursue what they have always wanted. Whether age, weight gain, or a recent pregnancy has left you with arms that you are insecure about, this is the time to visit Moein Surgical Arts for an arm lift. To get more information on the procedure, view our patient gallery, or find out more about the recovery process, get in touch with us at your earliest convenience.

What is an Arm Lift?

Before delving into the recovery process, it is important to know what the procedure entails. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a brachioplasty (or arm lift), “reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow.” This reshaping results in a decrease in sagging skin, a tightened supportive tissue that leads to a beautiful shape, and removal of pockets of fat that reside in the area. Since there are aspects of the look of your arms that diet and exercise cannot help (i.e. heredity), having the option to undergo an arm lift is crucial. For more information on the procedure, contact Moein Surgical Arts today.

Recovery Information

Assuming that there are no complications or special considerations, the recovery time for an arm lift is relatively short. According to Real Self, patients can expect to return to their desk job between 1 and 2 weeks. However, it is important to note that each professional has their own recovery regimen. Therefore, it is important to make sure to consult with them during your initial consultation about expected time off. For example, Dr. Moein conducts a postoperative appointment to evaluate the healing process and answer any questions that have come up after the procedure. To schedule your initial consultation or find out more about recovery time for an arm lift, contact the professionals at Moein Surgical Arts today.

Other Considerations

Now that you know more about the procedure itself, along with the recovery information, it is important to note other considerations regarding the process. The first thing to discuss with your surgeon is whether you are a good candidate for the procedure (i.e. are you in overall good health and have realistic expectations). Another important aspect to consider is when you will be able to undergo the procedure with realistic recovery time. In addition, having an idea of what look you would like the result to be so that your surgeon can design the best way to help you. Since there are a multitude of considerations, and this is likely your first arm lift, trust the professionals at Moein Surgical Arts for your procedure. Dr. Moein has years of experience helping clients get results they love, and also has information on how to make the results last for years and years to come.
