Upper Arm Liposuction
Sometimes even with hitting the gym and dieting, upper arm fat can be stubborn. It may seem that no matter how hard you try, your upper arms still remain flabby and toneless. Liposuction of the upper arm is an effective way to remove the extra fat and tone the area.
What to Expect with Upper Arm Liposuction
During a liposuction procedure for the upper arms, a cannula is inserted under the skin and into the fat tissue that is to be removed. The doctor moves the cannula to break apart fat cells and to suction up the fat.
At Apex Medical Spa, we use vibration-supported liposuction. During vibration-supported liposuction, the cannula is moved in a fast vibrational mode. This helps to gently and microscopically cut and remove unwanted fat tissue. This liposuction method needs less force and effort to move the cannula, and this allows the doctor to work with higher precision.
Along with removing the fat that droops down when you hold your arm horizontally, fat located in front of the armpit and behind the armpit can also be removed.
Depending on the amount of fat removed, recovery can take a week or two. You may have swelling and bruising. Compression sleeves are usually advised to wear to help with the swelling. Make sure to follow your doctor’s post-procedure instructions in order to ensure a safe and quick recovery.
Many patients notice some results immediately. However, there may be swelling and bruising for a few days after the procedure. Your appearance should continue to improve over the following weeks.
Both men and women can have the procedure done. Good candidates for an upper arm liposuction procedure are people with good skin elasticity. Skin elasticity is the skin’s ability to stretch and then return to normal after being stretched.
