Arm liposuction with my breast reduction?
Thank you for asking about your arm liposuction.
- I agree with you that your arms have little fat.
- I am not sure what you mean when you say you hate their 'posture.'
- I suggest you show your surgeon exactly what you want changed to be sure that liposuction will give you the improement you want.
- If you want them slimmer over all, then liposuction is the right choice.

Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you are a good candidate for arm liposuction. You appear to have good skin elasticity and this will generally translate into a good result if appropriate technique is used. Make sure you
specifically look at before and after pictures of real patients who have
had this surgery performed by your surgeon and evaluate their results. The
most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I
recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic
surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.

You appear to be a reasonable candidate for arm liposuction. However, I would not combine this with the breast reduction. It will make recovery difficult and the increased surgery time will add to potential morbidity in the breasts. You do not need arm lift surgery.
It looks like you are probably a good candidate for arm lipo. It does not look like you have loose skin of the arm based upon your photos. Best to be seen in person.
I think liposuction is a good place to start. Sometimes the arms have prolonged swelling after liposuction, but your skin looks like it could retract nicely. You could always progress to the brachioplasty if you have some loose skin you don't like.
