Keep reading to find out how liposuction can help tone flabby arms.
How does liposuction work on arms?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to remove excess fat from specific areas of the body, such as the arms. The cannula is inserted through small incisions in the skin and is used to suction out the unwanted fat.
The procedure can help to contour and shape the arms by removing stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. By removing this unwanted fat, the procedure can help to contour and shape the arms, making them appear less flabby. This may give patients more confidence when wearing sleeveless clothing.
Should I get liposuction on my arms if I have loose skin?
It's important to note that liposuction does not firm or tone loose skin. If you have loose skin on your arms, you may want to consider a separate arm lift procedure to remove excess skin from this area.
Liposuction is intended for people with localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Before considering any procedure, it's important to have realistic expectations, be in good health, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate your individual case, and discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure.
When will I see results from liposuction for flabby arms?
Liposuction is typically performed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the amount of fat being removed and the size of the treatment area. Recovery time varies, but most people can return to normal activities within a week or two.
After having liposuction to treat flabby arms, you should start to see the results within a few weeks. However, it can take several weeks to several months for the optimal results to be visible as it takes time for the swelling to subside and the skin to tighten around the new contours of your arms.
During the first few days after the procedure, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. These side effects should subside within a week or two. Your surgeon will provide specific post-operative instructions to help you manage discomfort and promote proper healing.
It's important to keep in mind that liposuction results are not immediate, and it can take several weeks for full results to be visible. Also, it's crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet to help maintain your results over time.
