Asclera®(polidocanol) Injection is an alcohol that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy (spider vein treatment) to remove unwanted veins on your legs. Asclera is injected into the vein by a trained nurse or physician and effectively treats two types of veins:
A body lift is a procedure to raise and reshape the trunk and lower body. During the aging process and with significant changes in body size, the skin loses elasticity and support. The abdomen, lower back, buttocks and thighs lose their natural shape, firmness, and integrity. This procedure is designed to remove loose skin and fat and resuspend the tissues. Liposuction may be performed to accentuate body contour.
An arm lift (or brachioplasty) is a procedure to reduce excess sagging skin that droops down from arms (also called “batwings”). Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.
Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat.
Liposuction (or suction assisted lipectomy) is a body-sculpting procedure to remove fat that is unresponsive to dieting and exercising. This procedure can be applied to nearly any area of the body. Liposuction results in a slimmer and better proportioned figure. Liposuction is used effectively to reduce love handles, saddlebags, a double-chin, a bulge around the waistline, or other unsightly fatty deposits in order to develop a better shape and create a more beautiful body.
Sometimes dieting and exercise are not enough to improve the appearance of the waistline. Pregnancies and weight gain often, followed by weight loss, result in both stretched out skin and extra skin.
