Liposuction for Arms
You work hard to keep your body toned and in good shape, and that includes your arms. Frequently for women (and some men), a layer of fat covers your sculpted, shapely arms and shoulders, hiding good muscle tone and all your hard work.
You know your muscles are healthy and sleek, but they’re hidden from the world. Fortunately, you can get liposuction on your arms to help reveal your arm shape. Let’s take a closer look at how it works, including if you’re a good candidate for arm liposuction.
How Liposuction of the Arms Works
Commonly referred to as “bat wings,” the flab on the backside of the arm jiggles any time the arm is lifted and waved. Thankfully, arm liposuction can effectively and smoothly address this issue. This procedure involves using tumescent liposuction techniques to gently but effectively remove the upper arm fat to reveal your beautiful, shapely arms to the world.
In other words, arm liposuction can make it possible for patients to finally achieve arms that they can’t wait to show off.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you’re tired of working out only to have your efforts hidden from the world because of stubborn fat on the backside of your arms, you may be a great candidate for arm liposuction. Women, in particular, complain about this issue when they know beneath this layer of fat lurks the arms and shoulders they’ve always wanted.
Recovery, Downtime, and Results
Recovery from arm liposuction is minimal. Patients may experience some soreness or tenderness, swelling, and bruising for about 4-5 days following the surgery. Patients will be required to wear a compression garment following the surgery and can return to work and other light-duty activities, in just a few days.
