I would consider myself someone that is in the gym often and wanted my arms to be better sculpted so I decided to have what little fat I had left in my arms removed. It's only been 33 days since surgery and I have not been able to get back into the gym yet but soon. I am really looking forward to pumping up my arms and seeing the real results come to life.
I am very happy I had it done although I am bummed that I am losing my established muscle fast. It takes 30 days to lose the muscle and will take me 60+ days to build it back. But I do think in the long run I will be happy with what I chose to do.
The downsides to having liposuction done to my arms is the garment I had to wear for the first 3 weeks was awful, I am tall so my arms are longer than usual and it did not fit right, it irritated my elbows so they became raw. The other thing I disliked was it was visable to everyone since the strap came right across the collarbone. So needless to say I didn't want to leave the house. My arms are still a numb and VERY stiff as though the muscles and tendons shrunk so when I bend my arms or lift them it is very painful. I can't complain though I did choose to do this.
