For many women bulkiness of the upper arm can be quite distressing. Often the arm will rub when the arm swings while walking. It may be impossible to buy a jacket that fits and wearing an open sleeve dress or shirt may be quite embarrassing. Fortunately, upper arm liposculpture can solve these problems quickly and simply. Through two simple incisions in the elbow area, it is possible to reduce the fatty deposits in the arms while maintaining completely normal shape and function. Rarely is skin looseness a problem and no long incisions to remove skin are necessary. A small pad of fatty tissue sometimes bunches up where the arm meets the chest in front and this can be removed at the same time.
Any women with heaviness of the arm. If the arm feels out of proportion or looks bulky from behind and jackets don’t fit, liposculpture of the arm may be of benefit.
Yes, the reduction in the size of the arm is permanent, the final result may take a few weeks.
There are generally 2 single, small access points 2mm wide at the level of the elbow. These are not sutured after the procedure and essentially are invisible after a couple of weeks.
Sometimes the full area where the arm joins the chest in front can be treated at the same time or the area of the chest next to the arm.
A special arm garment is worn for 4-5 days. This is not visible under a dark long sleeve shirt allowing an early return to work.
