Arm Liposuction vs Arm Lift

Many people believe the only way to get rid of their flabby arms is with an arm lift (brachioplasty). However, there is a less invasive way where recovery is faster and easier. Arm liposuction with SmartLipo™ is a lipo procedure that uses laser energy to liquefy tissue before sucking it out. This makes it easier to remove the fat and is less traumatizing to the body. The laser will also stimulate collagen to help tighten the skin.

With an arm lift, the excess skin and tissue is physically cut away. A large incision will need to be made along the underside of the arm and then stitched back together once the excess fat and skin are cut away.

Recovering from this surgery is much longer and requires a lot of care. You will have to wear drains and compressions sleeves and you will have to change your bandages often. There is a lot of swelling, bruising and scarring post-surgery as well. Your risk of infection is much higher and it is simply more painful.

Arm liposuction in Philadelphia, PA is simple, affordable, and effective. There is much less side effects and the procedure is not as traumatizing. However, if you have an extreme amount of excess skin, the only way to remove that is with an arm lift.

Who is the best candidate for Arm Liposuction?

To qualify for the procedure, you need to be in good overall health. We require our patients to not smoke or use drugs. Liposuction for arms works best on patients who are not significantly overweight and can maintain a steady weight. Patients who have good skin elasticity will benefit the most from the procedure.

What to Expect from the Arm Liposuction Procedure

The arm lipo with SmartLipo™ is a fairly simple procedure. It does not require general anesthesia so it is much safer. Your doctor will administer a local anesthetic to ensure you feel no pain. Then they will thoroughly clean your skin around the site where the cannula will be inserted.

Your doctor will make a tiny incision and insert the cannula through the small opening to access the fat in the arms. Gently, they will move it back and forth vaporizing the fat cells and then sucking them out.

Once they are done, the cannula is removed and the small incision is closed up. You will be able to see results immediately. The skin tightening may take a few weeks to notice.
