Underarm Liposuction Spotlight

Are you suffering from those annoying “bat wings?” You know, that under arm area that has excess fat or skin, making your arms appear less than toned. This often appears with age, and unfortunately this area does not respond well to diet and exercise. You are probably very frustrated with this problematic area.

Additionally, another area located near the armpit and between the shoulder and bra line can also be a problem area, causing “side boobs” or “bra fat.” This area is called the anterior axillary, while the under arm area is the posterior axillary. By reducing fat and loose skin in these areas, you will experience high self-esteem and self-confidence, as you may find yourself more comfortable wearing sleeveless tops and strapless dresses.

The liposuction procedure is a great procedure to help reduce these pesky fat deposits. In fact, liposuction of these areas is often done in conjunction with other areas, such as the back, to create an overall smoother, more contoured profile.

The Liposuction Procedure

Underarm liposuction area is done using a safe, nearly pain-free tumescent liposuction technique. In the first step, an anesthetic solution will be injected into the treatment area. This solution will numb the area and reduce bleeding, as well as actually loosen the fat deposits. After the tumescent solution takes affect, the loosened fat will be gently suctioned away via tiny needles or cannulas. There are many benefits associated with this type of procedure, including:

  • A more self confident feeling
  • Your clothing will fit better as you will lose inches from the treatment area
  • It is a relatively quick procedure, with a short down time. Most patients can return to their normal routines within 24 to 48 hours.

Says Dr. Thomas Wright of the Laser Lipo and Vein Center, “I have found that liposuction of these areas are truly a wonderful way to increase your self confidence. This quick procedure will simply get rid of those pesky problem areas you’ve probably spent a lot of time trying to cover up.”
