Arm Liposuction


For upper & lower arm liposuction, the best candidate or rather the best results are achieved when the patient is of normal weight but has specific fatty areas on the arms. The main purpose of Liposuction is to smooth out uneven parts of the body and should not be used as a primary solution to weight loss. Proper diet and exercise is the best method to lose weight or to prevent fat from reoccurring. However a procedure such as upper or lower arm liposuction could be a perfect solution for a person that is having problems losing that last excess fat in their arms.

Upper & Lower Arm Liposuction: The Procedure

A normal arm liposuction procedure is usually not that complicated nor hard for a qualified plastic surgeon to perform.
Patients are first provided a light sedative to ease them through the liposuction procedure. If the sedative isn’t enough, the patient may request a local anesthetic.
The surgeon theArm Liposuctionn makes a small incision near the armpit or elbow and inserts a long metal tube called a cannula. In a standard procedure, the cannula is inserted in the incision and a high-powered suction device, which is located at the end of the instrument, begins to remove fat from the subcutaneous layer of the skin.
With a “tumescent lipo” procedure, tumescent liquid is injected into the arm before fat removal. This breaks up the fat and makes it easier for removal. This also numbs the area and helps the area heal faster and with less bruising. Upper and lower arm liposuction is among the most common form of liposuction procedure today.
The length of the overall procedures is usually between 45 minutes and 2 hours.
