How Can I Reduce the Fat on My Arms Without Surgery?

Upper arm fat can be notoriously difficult to treat – especially if you’re doing it through diet and exercise alone.  While lifting weights and eating healthy meals can help, the truth is that genetics and the aging process can make it that much more difficult to lose arm fat.  Yet given that we often show off our arms with shirts, tank tops, and dresses, it’s no wonder many of us are concerned with reducing arm fat without surgery.

Fortunately, there’s CoolSculpting for arm fat – and this innovative procedure is now available at Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD in Knoxville, Tennessee!

You may already know that CoolSculpting is one of the most popular FDA-approved, non-invasive body contouring procedures available today.  When it was first introduced to the market, CoolSculpting was initially used to treat excess fat on the abdomen, waistline, and thighs.  However, new advances in CoolSculpting hand pieces have made it possible to treat smaller body areas – including the upper arms.

CoolSculpting uses a specific hand piece designed for the upper arm, which allows it to transmit more freezing energy to fat cells than with its larger, more traditional hand pieces.  The freezing energy penetrates the deepest dermis layers to target and crystallize fat cells.  Once these fat cells have been frozen and destroyed, they’re removed over time by the body’s metabolism; this process usually takes about eight to twelve weeks.

CoolSculpting is highly effective, with visible results.  In fact, clinical studies have shown that CoolSculpting reduces fat in the targeted area by up to 21%.  That means you’ll enjoy significant inch loss from your upper arms – all without requiring surgery.
