Liposuction or Brachioplasty for Upper Arm

It’s not unusual for patients to request liposuction of the upper arms. This procedure is often associated with excellent clinical results and high levels of patient satisfaction. Unfortunately, the procedure isn’t for everyone and therefore patient selection is important. In cases where skin sag is present, liposuction can actually make the problem worse. Under these circumstances, it may be necessary to perform an upper arm brachioplasty.

Although your pictures suggest that liposuction would be beneficial, it’s impossible to say with certainty without performing a physical examination. This exam would evaluate skin laxity and arm fat content. Multiple liposuction techniques are available if this approach proves to be viable. Currently tumescent liposuction represents the gold standard that all other techniques are compared to.

If you’re considering liposuction of the upper arms it’s important to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon. Ultimately, the experience and qualifications of this surgeon are more important than the technique chosen. This surgeon should be able to formulate an appropriate treatment plan for your condition.

Vaser Liposuction ( Ultrasonic) for ARM LIPOSUCTION works great.

I have found that Vaser Ultrasonic ;liposuction is perfect for arm liposuction.  You can  also get a fine result with just simple small cannula tumescent liposuction but the vaser is a bit better for helping the skin shrink in some cases.  For years we were a little timid in the arm area but that has all changed.  The arms do well.  Wear an arm garment for 10 days,  Full activity by 14 days.. Full recovery to no soreness takes 3 to 4 months but remember wound healing takes 12 months for any surgery.  Do your arms with confidence.  This is an easy way to dip your toe in the liposuction water.  Get 3 opinions from ABPS - FACS surgeons.  Do your homework. Live forward.  Dr Commons

It does appear that your are a candidate for liposuction of the upper arms.  Though there are many forms of lipo (IE laser) they all work in a similar fashion and all should give you a good result.  Awake tumescent liposuction of the upper arms is a quick and safe procedure and it what we usually recommend for liposuction of limited areas.

Upper Arm Liposuction

Judging by the pictures, you seem to be a good candidate for #upper arm liposuction. You are a candidate if you have excessive subcutaneous fat, which is resistant to diet and exercise. If you wish to change the contours of your body. You may also want to consider VelaShape or tighten your skin after the excess fat is removed.
Most patients are near normal weight and desire permanent contour changes. Patients with average weight, localized fat collections, and healthy elastic skin are the best candidates for liposuction. Seek a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who can examine you and give you the best advice.

Armed for Lipo?

From the photo, you look to be young with firm fat and no loose hanging skin. Tumescent liposuction using the S.A.F.E. technique is an ideal approach to restore proportion to your arms. Six weeks of garment wear is critical for maximal skin retraction and a natural look.

The costs for liposuction of the arms

The cost of liposuction like other procedure vary considerably across the country and even in the same area depending on the cost structure. More expensive cities such as New York or Los Angeles, or areas with fewer board certified plastic surgeons may be more expensive than South Florida. Our liposuction price starts at $2800 + MD Anesthesia.

For the highest standards and cost containment, consult with experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeons who own their own nationally accredited surgery center.

The surgeon must maintain the highest standards to maintain national accreditation, has significant interest in ensuring that all the staff are the highest quality and trained in the specifics of each plastic surgery procedure, ensures that the facility is comfortable and private so patients are more inclined to recommend friends and family, and maintain the most cost effective structure possible which eliminates waste.

Arm Liposuction

Heavy and even moderately droopy arms can be recountoured very effectively with liposuction. Liposuction modifies volume by sucking out fat and because liposuction stimulates the skin to tighten, good elasticity provides a smooth contour after fat is removed. The procedure takes about an hour and there's virtually no scarring. I use several innovative forms of liposuction, including SmartLipo, in order to contour and resculpture the area while providing the most beautiful results with minimal scarring. Liposuction as an outpatient procedure under I.V. sedation can easily reduce the bulge that some people have in their arms.
