Toning flabby arms is a major fitness goal, next to shaping abs out of tummy fat and love handles. Ask anyone! No one wants the extra skin and fat flapping in the wind when they raise their arms or wave to say hi.
The thing about it is, it’s not easy to get rid of flabby arms, aka bat wings. Traditional exercise methods dictate that it demands a lot of bicep curls, deadlifts, pushups, and even TRX workouts. It can take up to a few months to see progress.
What this means is that you may be a little hesitant to wear sleeveless shirts. Tight sweaters are also a no-no since the fabric might emphasize the lack of definition more.
Many people fall victim to flabby arms. And there are just so hard to get rid of, on top of the fact that they are so common. Why is that?
Flabby Arms: It’s not just fat!
According to Dr. Marie Roxanne Velasco, flabby arms aren’t just caused by excess fat or weight gain. Flabby arms are also caused by sagging skin. “The natural aging process can also cause the skin to lose elasticity, resulting in sagging and flabby arms,” Dr. Velasco says.
In this fact, we find double jeopardy. You may be exercising often to create definition in your arms, but aging will come for you. If you’ve lost weight, the excess skin will still flap around and that can’t be solved by your usual gym routine.
Fight the Flab with Belo Medical Group
With this knowledge about flabby arms, Belo Medical Group offers several approaches to getting rid of flabby arms. Dr. Velsaco takes us through them and describes what they can do. Which one will best suit your condition?
Belo 360 Liposuction: Dr. Velasco calls this the “gold standard of treatment to take away excess fats, effectively and safely.” Belo 360 Liposuction takes into consideration how every party of your body is a sculpture. If you truly want to shape one part, you have to look at it from all angles. This is true especially when getting rid of your flabby arms.
The circumferential approach makes sure that after your 360 Liposcution, your arms are proportioned and well-sculpted.
Any Belo 360 Liposuction is followed up with Bodytite. This procedure uses a non-invasive Radio Frequency Assisted Lipo Tightening (RFALT) device. Bodytite tightens the skin especially since it’s been stretched by the fat. Hence, no more sagging!
Onda CoolWaves: One of the newest radiofrequency treatments at Belo Medical Group. This non-surgical procedure eliminates fat while tightening the body, firming up skin tissues. This is advised to get once a month for optimal results.
V-contour: This treatment is for those who don’t want to go under the knife. V-counter utilizes strategically placed injections to dissolve the fat. Once the fat is dissolved, it is drained via the lymphatic system.
Exilis: Coupled with V-counter is Exilis. This radiofrequency treatment melts your fat and triggers collagen production to create youthful and tighter skin. Exilis takes up to four sessions.
Aftercare and Waving Flabby Arms Away
Once you’ve achieved the arms you want via any of Belo Medical’s options, you just need a little bit more patience so they’ll stay toned and looking good.
For those who opted for the Belo 360 Liposuction, you will need to wear a binder for two weeks. Don’t skip on this. Plus, you just need to go back to the clinic for an ultrasound consultation, just to make sure your arms are healing the way they should.
Once the binders are gone or once you’ve finished your V-contour and Exilis sessions, don’t forget that keeping those arms sculpted still requires dedication. “One of the most important lifestyle changes you can make to maintain the results is to exercise regularly,” says Dr. Velasco. After your Belo procedure, there is a chance that you won’t get fat in that area again. But that fat could travel and settle in a different part of your body.
It’s then always the best to compliment your Belo Medical treatments, whether for flabby arms or other concerns, with a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise.
