Liposuction for thin arms?
- Based on the photos, you do not appear to have a lot of fat -
- And a small cannula liposuction may work very well.
- But you do need an examination -
- If the skin is loose in the arm pit, then it will need to be removed.
- If you lift weights to bulk up your arms, it may help.
- You already look fit and toned thought - and bulking up too much, unless you can maintain it, will leave loose skin when you stop exercising.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Lipo for arms
Although stretch marks are indicative of impaired elasticity, your arms should not get loose or lumpy, but would only benefit from liposuction performed by a ABPS certified/ASAPS member surgeon expert in body contouring.
Best of luck!

Getting great results from arm Lipo
Based on your pictures your skin looks relatively good so you should have it for really good result.
With your arms and in stretched out position you should not expect the skin to contract higher than it is currently but at the same time it will probably not get worse either.
Most of the results will probably be more noticeable when you have your arm in the down position in which case the gravity does not cause a hanging effect on the skin.
We can to spend most of her hours with our arms in the down position not walking around holding our arms up.
Still most people were self-conscious of their arms tend to view them in and out right position.
This is not as scenario or a question that has a yes or no answer but rather it's a matter of degree.
This really requires an honest in person discussion.
Educating patients to what's achievable it an honest manner followed by good surgical technique generally leads to Overo high patient satisfaction.
I suggest having several in person consultations.
Arm liposuction can be difficult to appreciate and photographs.
The reason for this is almost all before and after pictures are taken with the arms and the stretched out position. Even if results are impressive the skin in this anatomic position can hide results. Consult with several board-certified plastic surgeon who have expertise in liposuction in your area.

Liposuction of arms versus lift
Liposuction results are based on technique and amount of fat removed and depth of fat removal. So it is all operator dependant. Lifting results in scar that is permanent and could be thick and unsightly. You don't seem to be a good candidate for lift however as you state having stretch mark you may have lower elasticity of skin and would have improvement with expert liposuction technique and adequate and precision removal to get results that you want.
