About Arm Lift

Loose upper arm skin is most often related to extreme weight loss, often with individuals who have already undergone gastric bypass. If you were ever overweight, you more than likely developed heavy upper arms. The skin stretches over time to accommodate the increased volume of the upper arms. After weight loss, the skin often fails to tighten enough, and so it sags. The only way to improve this problem is through an arm lift, also called brachioplasty or arm lipectomy. Liposuction is sometimes warranted in these situations, but if your problem is due to loose skin, it is not the correct solution. The only time lipo is a better choice is when there is a lot of fat and the skin is tight. When the skin is loose, an arm lift is usually the best choice. Incisions and scars in Arm Lift are the greatest drawback of this operation. They extend from the armpit to the elbow, along the inside of the arm. This operation exchanges one cosmetic problem (loose skin) for another (scars). In general, those with very loose saggy skin are most likely to find this exchange worthwhile. Those with a small amount of looseness will probably not want the scars. In addition to surgical bracheoplasty, there is also a nonsurgical arm lift procedure available using either {!Body Thermage} or {!Titan Skin tightening lasers| Titan}.

Dr. Tim Zelko

Dr. Timothy Zelko is a Board Certified Physician who has been in practice for 24 years. In the Fall of 2005, he became interested in adding liposuction procedures to his aesthetic practice.

Liposuction has been and still is the
 most common aesthetic procedure performed in the US, averaging approximately 500,000 procedures per year. Dr. Zelko realized that this huge demand was significantly tempered by the fear of pain, complications and cost of the procedure.

Dr. Zelko’s due diligence led to the discovery of Office Liposuction 
technologies. These procedures addressed this huge demand while
 simultaneously delivering a new a level of safety, comfort and 
acceptability. And even though the anesthetic technology to allow this procedure to be done painlessly in an office setting had been available for the previous 20 years; the liposuction technology was just starting to develop.

Dr. Zelko is a faculty member of The Society of Aesthetics in Medicine and offers monthly courses to physicians in Tumescent Technique and Office Liposuction. He takes great pride in this appointment and feels personally responsible for the success of his students.

His years as an obstetrician/gynecologist has allowed him to develop a gentle and empathetic bedside manner, has enabled him to hone his surgical skills and enhance his ability to communicate and educate his patients. All the above translates into an exceptional experience for his current aesthetic patients, both men and women alike.
