Are you thinking of undergoing an arm liposuction? If so then like so many people you probably have a problem with “bat wings” or flab on the upper arms due to stubborn fat deposits. Fat on the upper arms are some of the most difficult to eliminate even with regular exercise and a strict diet program. Such a problem often shakes people’s confidence forcing many to shy away from sleeveless garments or anything that exposes their upper arms.
Now unsightly fat deposits on the upper arms often come as a result of weight loss from obesity which causes the skin on that area to sag. If that pretty much sums up the predicament that you’re struggling with then you might want to look into arm liposuction as a viable and effective solution. However is it really worth the trouble?
About arm liposuction
Arm liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical operations sought after by thousands of people every year from all walks of life. Thanks to such a procedure, anyone can quickly and effectively have toned and lean looking arms without having to bother with strict diet and rigorous exercise programs in which fat in the upper arms has often proven to be highly resilient. If you are thinking of undergoing such a procedure though, it would be best to know a thing or two about what the operation entails.
How is the operation performed?
An arm liposuction typically starts out with a small incision done in the upper area of the arm as an access point for sucking out the fat deposits on the problem area. The immediate fat loss on the upper arms naturally results to sagging skin which is then tucked away and concealed unto the shoulders. The incisions are closed near the arm pit and heal over time.
Some degree of scarring is to be expected but it can be greatly minimised with skill and cosmetic surgical expertise. Hence it’s important to opt for a qualified and reputable cosmetic surgeon for the procedure with a reputation for safe and excellent results.

Arm liposuction operation typically takes around 30 minutes to 3 hours to complete depending on scope and complexity of the area being treated. The procedure may or may not require the use of general anaesthesia which also depends on the area to be treated.
The latter often requires patients to stay on the clinic overnight if only to guarantee safe results. Patients will need to don a prescribed garment for a period of 3 weeks following the operation for optimal recovery. Some bruising is to be expected and can take about ten days to disappear. Cuts from the incisions typically heal less than 5 days after the procedure.
Now the great thing about arm liposuction is that it gives patients the results that they want in just a few short hours. The recovery process is also fairly short and more manageable compared to other cosmetic surgical operations. Patients can expect to get back to their regular routine in 3 weeks. For best results, your cosmetic surgeon may recommend that the procedure be performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck procedure to eliminate excessive skin sags.
