Many people discover that no matter how many push-ups or arm exercises they do, they cannot eliminate stubborn fat deposits in their upper arms. This can lead to embarrassment and cause people to avoid clothing or situations where their arms are exposed. Feeling forced to wear long sleeves in the summer is an unhappy circumstance. Liposuction is an effective solution to this problem.
Liposuction is a procedure used to sculpt and remodel a patient’s body by getting rid of unwanted fat in specific areas. Liposuction on the arms is normally used to remove fat from the underside of the upper arms in order to create a firm and natural-looking result.
Depending on the amount of fat to be removed and the natural elasticity of the skin, an arm lift to remove excess skin may be recommended as well.
Liposuction in additional areas, such as the upper body (particularly the back), is often combined with arm liposuction for an overall sculpted look.
Liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise, or a cure for cellulite. Liposuction, properly used, is a means of removing stubborn fat deposits from specific areas of the body, thus improving the contours of that particular body part.
