Many women are bothered by the excess fullness of the arms that can be due to fat deposits which do not improve with diet and exercise.
Arm liposuction surgery is an excellent way to improve the contours of the arms, without having the scars from the more advance surgery such as an arm lift or brachioplasty surgery. Arm liposuction surgery is a common procedure for Connall Cosmetic Surgery in Portland, Oregon.
Is Arm Liposuction Right For Me?
Arm liposuction is an excellent treatment for patients that have good skin quality and minimal skin excess of the arms.
If you have good skin tone but some excess fat, then arm liposuction may be a good option to reshape and thin your arms into youthful and pleasing aesthetics. If you have loose or sagging skin, then brachioplasty or arm lift is more appropriate.
Arm Liposuction And Other Procedures
Arm liposuction is often combined with other procedures. The arm liposuction procedure utilizes the Body-Jet liposuction machine. The Body-Jet is a safe and gentle way of performing liposuction where a spray of water dislodges the fat.
Arm liposuction is often combined with liposuction of other areas of body such as the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. In addition, arm liposuction can often be combined with other procedures such as aesthetic breast or tummy tuck surgery.
Considerations For Arm Liposuction Patients
Candidates for arm liposuction must be in good health and near ideal body weight.
Liposuction is not a weight reduction procedure, and therefore if you have significant excess weight, you should lose the weight with diet and exercise. After that, residual areas of fat can be removed with Body-Jet liposuction.
The procedure can be performed awake with sedation and local numbing medicine or Body-Jet liposuction of the arms can be performed under general anesthesia.
