Nearly everyone out there wants to achieve sculpted, toned arms that signify a healthy body. That muscle definition is a sign of fitness and health. Unfortunately, the arms are one of the hardest area to slim and tone. Often, we struggle with those “bat wings” that can also be accompanied by “bra fat” or “side boobs.” Many who have excess fat on the inner arms will become self-conscious and wear clothing that covers up these areas.
Liposuction of the upper arms, along with the bra line and mid-back areas can help you achieve a smoother, more sculpted look. The underarm area is actually two areas: the posterior axillary and the anterior areas. Liposuction can be used on both these areas to create a smoother upper body profile and reduce upper arm fat.
At the Laser Lipo and Vein Center, we use a gentle tumescent liposuction procedure to reduce the stubborn fat deposits, which will in turn create firmer, more toned looking arms. The tumescent liposuction procedure is a gentle technique that is performed under a local anesthetic. A solution of saline, epinephrine, and an anesthetic is injected into the treatment area. The epinephrine has the added benefit of reducing bleeding and bruising. This tumescent fluid will loosen and dissolve the fatty deposits, which are then suctioned away using small cannulas.
The recovery process is quick and most people will be able to return to work and their normal schedules the day after the procedure. Compression garments may be advised to allow for an even faster healing process. These garments will also help shape the arms.
Dr. Thomas Wright, medical director at the Laser Lipo and Vein Center says, “I’ve found that arm liposuction is very beneficial to the self-confidence and self-esteem of my patients.” He continues, “By reducing and contouring the arms, clothes will fit better and will make you feel better about your overall look.”
