Get Those Sculpted, Toned Arms with Liposuction

Pic Arm lipoMany people — both men and women — desire sculpted arms and biceps. They workout and diet regularly to achieve that prized muscle definition. However, many people find that no matter how much exercise they put into this area they just cannot achieve the look they want. This is due to exercise-resistant fat deposits.

Advanced liposuction techniques will permanently remove fat from the arms and will give you a more toned look. You will also find that with slimmer arms your clothes will fit much better! Older liposuction procedures often included skin removal from the inner part of the arm that resulted in scars. With the newer liposuction procedures that use smaller instruments, this skin removal is not necessary, and provides better results without scars.

The Arm Liposuction Procedure

The first step of the procedure will be marking the treatment areas. Once the areas have been marked, you will receive an injection of a local anesthetic. Once the site is numbed, an additional injection of a solution consisting of a local anesthetic, epinephrine and saline is made. This solution will plump up the area and loosen the fat, making removal easier, as well as minimizing blood loss and bruising. Then a tiny suction device gently and permanently removes the fat. Because a local anesthetic is used and patients are awake, they can move their arms assisting the doctor to ensure that a symmetrical look is achieved.

Arm Liposuction Recovery

Recovery from arm liposuction is quick and has very little down time. In fact, most patients return to work and their normal schedules the next day. Compression bandages placed on the area can help patients recover more quickly, as well as helping the area gain its new, more toned shape. There is little to no pain or discomfort. Any pain can usually be alleviated with an over-the-counter pain reliever.

While little weight is lost by the fat removal process, the results are improved and sculpted. In fact, in order to achieve the same look, a person would have to lose many pounds. Arm liposuction can help you achieve the look you want almost immediately, rather than through months of hard work.
