How it works:

Liposuction (Arms)

The duration of the procedure will vary from patient to patient and how much fat they're having removed. Typically though, liposuction will take between one to two hours. The procedure can be performed using local anesthesia, to numb the area that will be treated, and sedation. If the procedure is more invasive and time consuming then the patient will be put under general anesthesia.

The surgeon will insert a cannula into either the crease of the armpit or near the elbow. The cannula is manipulated to break up the layer of fat, which allows the fat cells to be sucked out. The surgeon may also introduce large quantities of fluid to help break up the fact. This is called the 'tumescent' technique, or the ‘wet’ method.

Post surgery a patient has to wear pressure garments and bandages to reduce swelling and bruising.

Preparation before

Liposuction (Arms)

Pre - treatment

You will talk with their doctor about the surgery. This will normally include talking about technique, expectation, your preferences and any potential risks. You will then undergo tests to ensure you are fit enough for surgery. Your doctor will also recommend any medication you need to take or temporarily come off. Certain painkillers, anti-inflammatory drugs or herbal medications, shouldn’t be taken a week before surgery, as they can thin the blood. It is also recommended that you temporarily stop smoking to aid in the healing process. Not smoking will also reduce the risk of complications post-procedure. Make sure you have someone to care for you in the days that follow, this includes driving you home post-surgery.

Recovery after

Liposuction (Arms)

Post - treatment

You should follow these guidelines to aid in your recovery:

  • No strenuous physical activity in the days following surgery. You can slowly increase your activity 4 days post-surgery.
  • Continue to wear your compression garments to control swelling and bruising. This also helps maintain your arms' new contour shape. You may feel light-headed when removing garments. Sit down when removing them to reduce risk. If removing more than one garment leave a 10 minute gap between each removal to reduce dizziness.
  • You may have temporary drains in your incisions to remove fluid buildup. Generally, having drains reduces bruising.
  • Make sure you take your prescribed medication as instructed.
  • Keep your incisions clean to avoid infection. Make sure to wash them daily with soap and water.
  • Do not apply ice or heat packs and bandages to your treated area, it hinders healing.
  • Avoid aspirin and ibuprofen and any other anti-inflammatory drugs as they thin the blood, meaning your blood won’t clot as well and your immune system will be weakened, increasing risk of infection.

Risks & side effects

Liposuction complications are rare and usually minor, but there are always risks you should consider, including:

  • Bleeding under the skin. This is called having a ‘hematoma’.
  • Excessive scarring, skin discoloration and permanent numbness in surgical areas.
  • Pulmonary edema, which is an abnormal buildup of fluid in the lungs.
  • Allergic reactions to sedatives or other materials used during treatment.

FAQs:

Liposuction (Arms)

Who are the best candidates for liposuction?

Those best suited to liposuction are people who are ‘normal’ in weight, but have an issue shifting fat from certain areas. Having healthy skin, which is firm and elastic, will yield better results. Ultimately it will be the doctor that decides the suitability of a patient, this will be after an examination and consultation have taken place. Individuals that have underlying health conditions or bleeding disorders will likely be deemed unsuitable.

How Is arm Liposuction different from an arm lift?

The two procedures are different in how the results are achieved. Arm liposuction is good at targeting excess fat in the arms, so would be great for flab. An arm lift is much more invasive and is considered complex surgery because it removes skin and fat. The procedure needs to be performed under general anesthetic, and will yield bigger incision sites. Arm lifts also have a longer recovery time.

 

How effective is this procedure for weight loss?

Liposuction is great for difficult or stubborn fat areas that can’t be reduced through diet and exercise. It is not an alternative to weight loss. Your doctor will detail the procedure and set realistic expectations of the results. As well as determine the best areas to work on that align with your wishes.

 

When can I return to exercises?

One week after surgery. Make sure to discuss this with your doctor. The exercise can’t be strenuous to begin with, mild aerobics and walking is recommended. You should be 50% done with your post-surgery workout three weeks after surgery. A month or so post-surgery you should be fit enough to resume your normal routine.

 

When can I expect to see my final results?

Once your swelling has reduced you’ll be able to ascertain your results clearly. Most patients see their results 6-8 weeks post surgery. Scars from the surgery will take about 2 years to fade.
