This slimming of the arms provided by aesthetic medicine makes it possible, if necessary, to reshape the contours, to gain thinner and firmer arms. And to walk around without shame with bare arms. How to slim down your arms for certain?
The causes: why is arm slimming so tricky?
The gradual formation of fat deposits in the arms has different reasons They are mostly genetic, hormonal or lifestyle related (diet, sedentary lifestyle...). Arms that are too fat and too big are causing major clothing problems.
For hormonal reasons, the android model of men causes fat to grow more in the upper body, such as the thorax or arms. In women, the gynoid model favors fat deposits in the lower part of the body, except after menopause, when all areas may be impacted. In addition, arms cellulite is more prevalent in women than in men.
But slimming the arms in such a localized way is almost impossible, on the one hand, because slimming is always a complicated process. And on the other hand, because it is always hard to target specific areas.
This thinning of the arms is often aggravated by two other aesthetic imperfections.
1-The first case is skin sagging, which occurs in both sexes and is accentuated by fat deposits. It is usual when the skin loses its collagen and firmness.
On less toned skin, gravity will pull the skin folds down, occasionally resulting in bat-like arms.
In case of a considerable excess of skin tissue, however, only an arm lift or brachioplasty will deliver a harmonious result.
2 – The second issue is that of arm cellulite in women. The excess fat is coupled with water retention, with an orange peel appearance. Slimming arms therefore also involves the treatment of oedema, whether it is oedematous cellulite or fat cellulite.

Faced with a prominent skin slackening, your aesthetic doctor may favor a thermolysis, to associate a neocollagenesis that remodels the dermis.
