About Arms Liposculpture
For many women bulkiness of the upper arm can be quite distressing. Often the arm will rub when the arm swings while walking. When the arm is resting by your side, the fat bulges outwards and the arms appear rounded and bulky. It may be impossible to buy a jacket that fits and wearing an open sleeve dress or shirt may be quite embarrassing. Doing upper body weight lifting or exercises very rarely reduces fat from these areas unfortunately. Of course, the arm muscles become more toned but the overlying fat hides the muscles and the arms therefore look bigger. Fortunately, upper arm liposculpture can solve these problems quickly and simply. Through a few simple incisions in the elbow area and one in the shoulder region, it is possible to reduce the fatty deposits in the arms while maintaining shape and function. Rarely is skin looseness a problem and rarely are long incisions to remove skin (brachioplasty) are necessary. The fat on the upper back adjacent to the arm, on the outside of the bra strap, is also treated at the same time, to reduce the bulkiness. A small pad of fatty tissue sometimes bunches up where the arm meets the chest in front (anterior axillary fat pad) and if it exists, this will be removed too. This is one of the most slimming of the multitude of liposculpture procedures that may be performed on the body.
A common concern for some people is just what happens to the “extra skin” after liposculpture. The body can dramatically reduce the surface area of the skin after liposculpture and a procedure to reduce skin further is rarely necessary unless exceptional circumstances. Even in people older than 50, loose skin is very rarely a problem.
