Most patients have the highest satisfaction with arm liposuction. Tumescent liposuction can be done through micro cannulas which provide amazing results and happy patients. The procedure is mostly done by women, and having liposuction in the arms provides an overall thinner appearance. Your arms are the most visible part of the body, so liposuction of the arms gives women more confidence in wearing short sleeves.
With an Arm Lift procedure, a large portion of loose skin under the arm is surgically removed using a scalpel and other surgical instruments. This incision usually extended from under the armpit to the elbow and left a visible scar under the arm. Once the incision has been made, a traditional liposuction procedure may be used to remove excess fat. The remaining portions of skin are then stitched back together using either traditional or dissolvable sutures.
For aging patients, or those with complex medical histories, our office coordinates with your Primary Care Physician to ensure you are healthy enough to undergo this procedure. However, because our patented procedure does not use general anesthesia, many of the risks associated with traditional liposuction are avoided.
It is also a great head start for a new lifestyle of exercise and healthy eating. We advise that you do not lose weight for your procedure. We want to sculpt you as you are without trying to lose weight first.
Typically, women have fat that is softer and less fibrous than male patients. Because of this, it was often more difficult to operate on male patients.
