Wave goodbye to flabby arms with arm liposuction

Aging and fluctuations in weight can lead to loose, hanging skin on the underside of the upper arm. If you have flabby arms, arm liposuction can slim the contour of the arm and restore your self-esteem and confidence. Read on to learn more about the different types of arm liposuction and what to expect during surgery and recovery. 

4 types of liposuction 

There are four types of liposuction to treat the arms: traditional, tumescent, ultrasound-assisted and laser-assisted. Each procedure consists of removing fat through a thin cannula that is inserted through small incisions in the skin. Dr. Weinstein will discuss which liposuction method would be best for you and your condition. 

Traditional liposuction consists of moving the thin cannula back and forth manually. This method can damage blood vessels and cause significant swelling, so it’s usually reserved for removing large areas of fat. 

Tumescent liposuction consists of injecting an anesthetic into the tissue, causing the blood vessels to shrink or constrict. This method results in less swelling and bruising. 

Ultrasound- and laser-assisted liposuction are less invasive treatments that liquify the fat using a smaller cannula. One added benefit to laser-assisted liposuction is that it firms the skin over the treatment area. The skin will get firmer over time with the other methods. 

Candidates 

Ideal patients have stubborn areas of localized fat that don’t respond well to diet or exercise. Good candidates are also no more than 10-15 pounds overweight. 

Surgery 

No matter which liposuction method is used, the outpatient procedure requires local anesthesia and takes 1-2 hours to perform. 

Recovery 

Patients can expect soreness and bruising after surgery. You should rest your arms for 4-5 days after surgery. You will have to wear a compression sleeve around the upper arms for up to four weeks. Scarring is minimal as the incisions made are tiny. 

Arm liposuction can get your arms ready to show off in sleeveless shirts and tank tops. To learn more about this procedure, schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein by calling (908) 879-2222. 

3 Exercises to Maintain Your Arm Lipo Results

When patients hear of liposuction, they usually think of getting it done around the abdomen or upper thighs, but liposuction can be used all across the body. Here at our office, one of the most popular places that patients elect to get liposuction done at is the upper arms. By removing excess fat from the upper arms, our goal is to give patients slender looking arms that you feel confident in, But, after surgery is done and you have recovered, there are a few things that you can do to keep your arms looking long, lean, and slender.

Push Ups

Push-ups are one of the easiest workouts you can do to tone up your arms because there is no equipment necessary. Whether you do push-ups the regular way or you elect to do them on your knees, get into the habit of doing them several times a week to help maintain and enhnce the shape of your arm muscles.

Lap Swimming

Now that outdoor pools are open everywhere, why not go outside, get some sun, and work out your arms in the pool? Lap swimming is a great way to get those long, lean muscles while also getting a good cardio workout in. Just make sure that you wear sunscreen so that you don’t come out of the water looking more like a lobster than anything.

Chair Dips

Another easy workout to do for your arms is chair dips. Similar to push-ups, there isn’t anything that you need other than a chair. To do this exercise, stand with your back facing the chair, squat down, and put your arms behind you. Then, extend your legs out in front of you. Slowly dip your arms down (almost like a backward push up).

Our job is to give you slimmer arms after liposuction, but your job is to maintain the results. Ready to learn more about arm liposuction? Contact our Chester office today and call us at 908.879.2222.
