Liposuction of the Arms

Liposuction of the Arms

Upper arms have a reputation for being flabby or floppy no matter how many arm-targeted workouts you undertake. Even if you strengthen your biceps and triceps, a persistent layer of fat will still obscure the muscular definition. Unfortunately, the arms are genetically inclined to accumulate fat deposits, and diet and exercise do nothing to combat this layer of fat deposits and sagging skin. Aside from heredity, additional factors contributing to fat accumulation in the upper arms include the patient`s age and gender. 

A Houston Liposuction Center arm liposuction procedure will reduce resistant fat deposits in the upper arms. Arm liposuction can not be used as a substitute for regular exercise and a healthy diet. This treatment is designated for people who have not seen benefits from their strenuous efforts to tone their arms. Not everyone is a good candidate for arm liposuction.

 How Is Arm Liposuction Done?

Arm liposuction surgery is an invasive but not too tricky procedure. Your surgeon`s office is most likely where the process will take place. (Make sure that the surgeon you choose is a board-certified plastic surgeon with a reputation for competent, professional outcomes.) Dr. Mowlavi will take exact measurements of the regions of your body to be treated before beginning the surgical procedure. 

In the arms, two incisions are made: one at the elbow joint and the other in the rear of the underarm. This helps you to get rid of unwanted fat while still having control over your arm slimming. As soon as the lacerations are created, Dr. Mowlavi will implant a cannula, a steel tube used during liposuction operations. He uses the cannula in a smooth backward and forward motion along the skin`s surface area to help break up fat cells, which are subsequently sucked out of the body.

This therapy preserves the skin, capillaries, nerves, and muscles, minimizing healing and scarring to the greatest extent feasible. As a result, you will be sent home on the day of the therapy. However, it would help if a friend or spouse drive you home because your arms will be bruised and swollen following the procedure. 

Recovery / Downtime

Following your arm liposuction surgery, you will require some downtime. Bandaging or compression garments are placed over the upper arms to assist the skin in adapting to its new contour and decrease any swelling or bruising; this must be worn 24 hours a day for the next two weeks. Work and moderate activities can be resumed soon, but heavy lifting should be avoided for the first couple of weeks. Discomfort is rarely reported, but pain medication can be provided if needed; we want you to be as comfortable as possible. When ideal results are achieved in 1-2 months, most arm liposuction patients report an immediate boost in self-esteem and the confidence to wear sleeveless shirts. 

Getting the Best Outcomes

Arm liposuction removes extra fat but does not tighten sagging skin. In just a few cases, does the skin have enough elasticity to tighten on its own? If you require tightening following liposuction, your surgeon will advise you on any additional procedures that should be performed. A tuck is usually a possibility. Most skin types will benefit from Renuvion J-Plasma tightening. To achieve the most outstanding results, extra skin may need to be surgically removed. 

Where Can I Find the Best Cosmetic Surgeon?

You are responsible for selecting the best cosmetic surgeon for your arm liposuction. You might seek advice from friends and family members who have previously gone through the procedure. They can offer you an honest assessment of the entire process and how they were able to recover. You may also take a look on the internet to find the best surgeon for you. You may read reviews that will allow you to learn from the experiences of past patients.
