The upper arms are a trouble fat area for many people, especially women. “Matronly” arms are usually a genetic trait and have little to do with your body weight. Heavy upper arms can make it hard to wear certain shirts or coats that are too tight, even though the rest of the garment fits perfectly. If you desire sleek and slender arms, you may want to consider a lipo procedure. Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body offers arm liposuction to reshape the upper arms at our plastic surgery center in Johns Creek, GA.
If you hide your arms under half, three-quarter or full sleeves even in the summer, you may want to explore liposuction for arm shaping. Lipo is wonderful for those who have areas of stubborn fat that do not go away with diet or exercise. You cannot determine where your body will burn or store fat, but you can have the fat removed with plastic surgery. Dr. Myla and our team at Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body can help you achieve beautifully sculpted upper arms with liposuction procedures.
Are You a Good Candidate for Arm Lipo Reshaping?
The best candidates for arm liposuction are those who are within a normal weight range for their height and body frame but have thick or fatty upper arms. It is also important to have good skin elasticity so the skin will shrink and conform to the smaller arm size. Those who have the infamous upper arm “bat wings” with sagging skin may require an arm lift procedure that includes lipo with removal of excess skin to create the desired size and shape.
Arm liposuction surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. The small incisions can be easily hidden under the arm near the armpit, making them almost invisible once they heal. During the procedure, the fatty tissue is liquified and suctioned out with a small cannula. Once the fat is removed, the cells do not regenerate, making the arms permanently smaller.
If slimmer arms are your goal, liposuction may be the right procedure to give you the shapely arms you desire.
