Losing a moderate amount of weight, as well as the natural aging process can leave behind loose skin that can be annoying and unappealing. In some areas, it becomes more bothersome, and both men and women will look at treatment options. Dr. Kesh Nawada offers an alternative solution to a surgical skin tightening arm lift, Brachioplasty, which at one time was one of the only options available. Today, using plasma technology, Dr. Nawada can perform a cosmetic procedure known as BrachioPlasma™, which uses tiny incisions to insert a device that emits plasma beams to tighten the skin without long, unsightly incisions and scarring. While a surgical arm lift (known as Brachioplasty) can offer lasting, dramatic results, it does leave scarring that cannot be avoided. For patients with minimal sag, the BrachioPlasma™ arm lift can provide the desired results without surgery.
BrachioPlasma™ Surgical Technique
BrachioPlasma™ is performed using Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) and J-Plasma® helium energy to tighten the soft tissues below the skin. Unlike traditional lasers, J-Plasma® energy can be administered under the skin (subcutaneously) because it uses energized helium to create a plasma energy field (75% less of the thermal load of a CO2 laser). When introduced under the skin, it causes immediate and often dramatic skin tightening. There is no significant scarring because only several very small incisions (~5 millimeters in size) are needed. The entire procedure is done with local anesthetic and IV sedation and usually takes less than an hour and the recovery can be as short as 3 – 5 days.
"Dr. Nawada is hands down the BEST Plastic Surgeon in Central Florida. Prior to my surgery I was well informed and given 100% confidence. In result, my instincts were spot on selecting Dr. Nawada to perform my elaborate procedure. Surgery went smooth and follow up was very caring & professional. He is an artist that helped me gain my confidence back. Thank you Dr.Nawada & Amazing Nurses!!"- J. / Healthgrades / Apr 09, 2016

"Dr. Nawada is AWESOME!! Along with his staff. I had a BOTCHED breast reduction from a surgeon at Lakeland’s Watson Clinic in 2003. I was promised the moon and back and was left mutilated. I wasn’t the only one who went too this “so called plastic surgeon “ and received botched results. My breasts were so botched I would cry looking at them in the mirror. The scars were horrendous and hurt all the time. I couldn’t wear a bra, not that I needed one anymore bc all I was left with going from a 38HHH too barely A cups which were scars. I heard so many great things about Dr. Nawada so I went for a consultation 5 years later. He is very upfront and tells you like it is which I truly liked. Some take that as he doesn’t have a good bedside manner, but it’s they want things the way they want it not reasonable for the best results. Not only did he fix the scars which when he did it left my breast concave, but he put in appropriate size, shape and form of saline implants proportionate too my body. Along with the breast reconstruction he tandemly did an apron tummy tuck and gave me the cutest belly button ever. (I had weighed almost 300lbs in my teen years and lost over 100 leaving the skin too skin touching which was removed) All I can say is everything was perfect then and still too this day 10 years later I’m still loving the way I look. My daughter who is 21 went through this with me mind you she was only 12 at the time and now she has one breast 2 2 1/2 sizes smaller. Dr. Nawada examined her when she was 18 and told her too wait until she was 21 and come back and he will augment her breast too make them fuller and even. I appreciate his honesty and telling her too wait because most would have done it back when she was 18 and as he told her her breast will be about done growing around 21-22 keeping the need of an additional surgery if she were too have done at 18. She’s preparing soon too have her surgery and I feel SUPER COMFORTABLE AND SAFE putting my baby’s life and vanity in Dr. Nawada’s and his staffs hands. It doesn’t hurt either that his head Nurse/office director was a high school classmate of mine. If you want the BEST NAWADA AND ASSOCIATES is the place too go??!!"- A.S. / Google / Nov 25, 2018
"It has been 17 years, but was an exceptional experience. I wish Dr. Nawada was here in the Atlanta area...."- V.A. / Facebook / Jun 20, 2018
What’s the Downtime?
The downtime associated with BrachioPlasma™ can vary depending on how large of an area is treated, however, most patients need only between 3 – 5 days to recover and feel back to normal. Our team of medical assistants will fit the patient in a post-surgical compression garment that should be worn following surgery. Even though patients can resume normal activities rather quickly, vigorous exercise should be held off for a couple weeks after treatment.
Does It Work ?
Yes, this treatment has been proven to work and has shown excellent outcomes. Unlike some other devices that only provide minimal improvements, BrachioPlasma™ results in immediate skin tightening with additional tightening still occurring from 2 – 4 weeks after the initial treatment. Our patients are amazed at the results! Dr. Nawada sees results similar to traditional surgical techniques that would leave much larger scars. That’s what makes J-Plasma® so great.
How Much Does It Cost?
For Upper Arm BrachioPlasma™ the cost is approximately $3,000 to $4,000. Dr. Nawada offers thorough consultations so that all of the options can be discussed and a treatment plan created to attain the right results.
