If you are embarrassed by excess fat on your upper arms, arm liposuction can create a firm, sculpted, youthful look. If you are uncomfortable revealing your arms, a custom arm liposuction treatment performed by Dr. Khalifeh will restore a fit and slender appearance to flabby upper arms, with a two to three-day recovery time.
Laser-assisted liposuction may be the ideal treatment to remove excess fat on the upper arms. Our advanced liposuction system, Smartlipo, requires only local anesthesia while tightening the surrounding tissues. Upper arm lipo is not painful and achieves remarkably attractive results. If you have a significant quantity of lax skin and tissue, a surgical arm lift, or brachioplasty, is often the most appropriate treatment.
Removing excess fat from the upper arms requires about two hours to complete. The basic steps are as follows:
Dr. Khalifeh has achieved recognition in the field of plastic surgery and serves as an Assistant Professor and Co-Director of the Cosmetic Surgery Education Program at Johns Hopkins University in the Department of Plastic Surgery. If you struggle with fatty, flabby upper arms, Dr. Khalifeh will evaluate your condition and guide you to the most effective procedure. He achieves remarkable results with Smartlipo treatments, at prices that are affordable and within reach for many patients.
The female body often stores fat in the upper arms, thighs, abdomen, and buttock. As hormone levels change during puberty, estrogen triggers the growth of fat cells. Diet and exercise can reduce the quantities of stored fat, but this is a slow process, and the fat in the upper arms is challenging to shed. In these cases, you can achieve firmer, thinner, and more attractive arms with arm liposuction.
Liposuction has come a long way since it was first developed in 1978. Traditional liposuction may be appropriate for people with more significant fatty deposits, but laser-assisted liposuction is the gold standard in modern fat removal. Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure, but a treatment to resculpt your body.
The cost of arm liposuction can vary based on the extent of the procedure. A consult is required to get an exact quote. Our fees, depending on the promotion, will range typically around $4500 for this procedure.
A microcannula is much smaller than a standard cannula (thin hollow tube for fat extraction). As the diameter is smaller, the treatment is less painful, allows for greater accuracy and precision, and has a faster healing time. The technique (also called liposculpture) has the added benefit of triggering natural collagen production in the skin so it becomes firmer and more supple in the days and weeks following treatment.
All liposuction treatments involve the removal of fat. With Smartlipo, the process is slightly different, as the device emits laser energy to release and melt the fat from the surrounding tissue, causing less trauma to the surrounding tissue.
The results of arm liposuction are long-lasting, but if you gain a significant amount of weight, fat can once again accumulate on your upper arms – although it will not be as much. You have a limited number of fat cells, which swell and shrink with weight gain. If you exercise, eat healthy food, stay hydrated, and care for your body, your results should be long term.
