Will Lipo help in shrinking the size of my arms and shoulders? (photo)

I have large upper arms and shoulders lots of flab. I'm transitioning m2f, and I would like a smaller upper body. I'm not rich but I would like to have lipo. And can the fat be placed in my butt? Thighs? Hips? Or breasts? Please help

M2F transition - will liposuction help

Thank you for asking about your liposuction.

  • In the photos, you appear to have very broad shoulders because of your underlying bone structure.
  • You need an examination to see where the fat might be removed to get you as close as possible to the look you want.
  • The fat can be placed in new areas but please be aware that results of fat transfers tend to be disappointing - once the swelling goes down and half the fat is absorbed, results tend to be subtle.
  • The amount of fat removed from an arm and upper back liposuction is  likely to be fairly small.

Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes, Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD

Shrinking the Shoulders

I suggest only seeing a VASER hi def body contouring expert for these types of treatments. Circumferential liposuction of the arms requires a 4D approach and needs a specialist. Fat can be transferred as long as it is usable. Best, Dr. Emer.
