Upper Arm Liposuction Beverly Hills - Lipo of the Upper Arms

Posted By

'What is the difference between a tummy tuck and liposuction, Dennis Dass, MD
Liposuction, often called lipo, is a great tool for removing fat from virtually any area of the body. Particularly stubborn fat deposits unresponsive to diet and exercise.

A common area of concern for women is the upper arms. Many women complain of large upper arms. Arm liposuction in Beverly Hills can be performed to contour this trouble area, and to remove the excess fat from those pesky undersides or "batwings." Once the swelling resolves, you will notice that the circumference of the arm will be smaller.

How to shrink fat in the upper arms - with surgery

Small diameter cannulas are used to remove the fat, so that you will only need one or two very small incisions for effective removal. Although arm lipo is a relatively small procedure, it requires a surgeon's extensive skills to ensure a good result. It is easy to get irregularities and skin laxity or sagging skin if the liposuction is over-aggressive. This is why arm liposuction is reserved for women with good, quality skin. Arms with loose skin and a significant number of stretch marks will be incompletely treated with liposuction alone. Excess arm skin is removed by way of an upper arm lift, or brachioplasty. Brachioplasty can sometimes be performed at the same time as liposuction, or can be performed later in a staged fashion once swelling from lipo is resolved.

Be proud of your arms, in no time

The recovery from arm liposuction is rather quick. You may feel sore for about 3 or 4 days. You can resume most non-strenuous activities right away. You will need a compression garment on your arms for about 4 weeks to help with the swelling and ensure skin heals smoothly. Keeping the arms elevated also helps with swelling.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
