Are you one of the many people who are insecure about revealing or raising your arms because of the loose, hanging flaps of skin that often develop on and below the upper arms? This is usually a normal process in the arms as people age. If you have tried almost everything and exhausted yourself from exercising and dieting and still doesn’t eliminate the loose arm flaps and could still pinch an extra inch or two halfway between your elbow and shoulder, fret no more because there is already a solution to your problem: Arm liposuction.
No matter how hard you try to eliminate the extra skin and loosing flaps on those arms through exercise, it wont do any good because loose skin and fat deposits form in areas that toning can’t touch. In other words, this problem is exercise and diet resistant. Arm liposuction is a fast, effective and nearly the painless way to say goodbye to those ugly, loose arm flaps and put your upper arms in sync with the rest of your body when it comes to looking shapely. You would be able to see the arm liposuction before and after results once you go through the procedure.
There are different techniques that could be employed in arm liposuction like laser liposuction. Since flabby upper arms are composed of tissue, skin and fat, this type of procedure can uniquely dissolve the fat and at the same time tighten the skin and solve the flabby issues. The procedure starts with the injection of local anesthesia. Tiny incisions will be made on the affected area. After that, a tiny cannula will be inserted into the incisions to melt the fat, dissolve and remove via suction. Once done, the incisions will be tightened by suturing it up. The procedure normally takes around 1-2 hours. Minimal swelling and bruising with little scarring are to be expected. It is normal to feel sore and bruised after the procedure but it won’t be that long. Recovery usually takes about 4-5 days after the procedure. After 4 weeks, you could probably go back to your regular routine. Arm liposuction before and after results will be obviously visible even if you don’t take photos.
After the procedure, you may be instructed by your surgeon to wear a compression sleeve that would be used to wrap around your arms to hold the incision and the treated area firmly in place. This tremendously aids in faster recovery and healing and could make scarring nearly invisible. Arm liposuction before and after results are best seen on patients who are no more than 10-15 pounds overweight and have elastic skin. Underarm flab often occurs in adults and even young and fit people.
