Liposuction for Arms –
Unfortunately, a woman’s body may start to deposit fat in the arms – due to heredity, weight gain or age – that no amount of exercise or diet seems to reduce. Additionally, as we age gravity takes its toll on many areas of the body – and our upper arms are no exception. If there is excess fat in the upper arm, it will often drop and become flabby.
For women with excess fat in their upper arms, tumescent liposuction can be a godsend that takes years off of their appearance. Dr. Ali is an Oakland County board certified plastic surgeon who has helped hundreds of women in Oakland County love their arms again with affordable tumescent liposuction of the upper arms.
Not only can arm liposuction make your arms smaller, it can give them a slimmer, smoother, sexier shape – so you no longer have to constantly hide beneath long sleeves!
How Arm Liposuction is Performed
A very thin tube (micro-cannula) is inserted into the fatty area through a tiny incision. Only local anesthetic is used, and the patient is not “knocked out” – which makes the procedure very safe. No stitches are needed and there is no scarring. The surgeon gently and skillfully moves the cannula slowly back and forth to break up the unwanted fat cells. Then the fat cells are sucked through the cannula and out of the body.
The entire arm liposuction only takes about thirty minutes. However, if additional areas of the body are also done, the liposuction process will take longer. You are allowed to go home shortly after the procedure.
You will be given specific instructions about wearing a compression sleeve afterwards – as well as what medications you can take for any pain. However, many women find that the discomfort is minimal and pain medication is not even needed after arm liposuction.
The actual results are “immediate” (because the fat has been sucked out) – but you may not be able to see the complete results of the slimming and contouring until the swelling gradually subsides (in few days to 4 to 6 weeks).
Upper Arm Liposuction Benefits
Liposuction can remove inches from your arms. After arm liposuction you will also have a more proportionate appearance in your arms – so your upper arms will be closer in size to your forearms. Both the loss of inches, and the better proportions, will make your arms look longer, smoother and more slender.
You will finally feel more comfortable with your arms, so you can enjoy wearing sleeveless tops and dresses – and even bathing suits!
Arm Liposuction Considerations
If you have excess arm fat in your twenties or thirties, it tends to get worse in your fifties or sixties. Catching it before the skin has gotten to loose is important – so if you are considering an arm lift it is wise to see an experienced plastic surgeon as soon as possible. For those whose skin has loosened too much, an arm lift is another viable option. But this is more invasive, requires anesthetic, and does leave some scarring.
Additionally, the accumulation of upper arm fat is accompanied by “back fat” or “bra rolls”. When performing upper arm liposuction, Dr. Ali will also examine the area just behind your armpits. To ensure a smooth contour and better proportions from the woman’s back to her arm, he may also recommend some lipo in the back area.
