Upper Arm Liposuction
From you photo, you appear to be a good candidate for arm liposuction. The expertise of the surgeon is primary, and the type of liposuction is secondary. All techniques are good, if performed by an excellent surgeon. GOod luck!
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.
Liposuction of upper arms
You will probably benefit by upper arm liposuction as there is an abundance of fat in the tricpes. Some or most if not all the skin may contract and give you a wonderful result, but realize that some people have inelastic skin that does not retract and the fat may be diminished but the skin may hang. If this is the case, then an arm lift is in order but unfortunately, this means that there will be a large, and possibly, unsightly scar. Lipousction and Thermage may be helpful to decrease the need of an arm lift.

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.
The costs for liposuction of the arms
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 Liposuctioning Candidate?
Thank you for the question and picture.
It is hard to know whether you are a good candidate for liposuction surgery of the upper arms without direct examination.
Generally, the “Ideal” liposuction patient candidates present with isolated diet and exercise resistant adipose tissue collection, with overlying skin that demonstrates adequate elasticity ( to “bounce back” after the adipose tissue has been removed).
Furthermore, good skin elasticity is an important attribute of the patient undergoing liposuction surgery. As we age we generally lose some skin elasticity. After the liposuction procedure we are depending on the skin elasticity to allow the skin envelope to “shrink” to fit the reduced contour resulting from the liposuction procedure.
I would suggest in-person consultation with a well experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.

Liposuction of the Upper Arm: Improving contour without an incision
Liposuction of the upper arm is great for extra fat in the inner arm area if your skin is of good quality. I would stick to tried and true liposuction technology; either standard suction assisted, power assisted or ultrasound assisted liposuction. The outer arm is difficult to contour secondary to the increased density of the fat. If you have excess skin, liposuction will not cause skin retraction, despite what the companies tell you, and in this circumstance the liposuction can be combined with skin excision, which is called a brachioplasty. I hope this helps. Dr. Trussler
