Upper Arm Liposuction Beverly Hills – Lipo of the Upper Arms
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.
