Arm Liposuction in Atlanta, GA
TYPE OF PROCEDURE
Excess fat in the upper arm area can give you the appearance of being out of shape and reduce your self-confidence. As we age, our metabolic rates tend to decrease, and natural hormone levels are disrupted causing our bodies to store excess fat and inhibit our ability to build muscle. This excess fat can settle in the arms and often diet and exercise are not enough to mitigate it. Excess arm fat can affect both men and women however, women naturally have a higher percentage of body fat and lower percentages of testosterone so statistically, they have more issues with arm flab. Arm liposuction can get rid of excess arm flab and create more defined youthful upper arms.
What is Arm Liposuction?
Arm liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure used to define and contour the upper arm area. A small instrument called a cannula is inserted through tiny incisions and fat cells are vacuumed out. Often it is performed in tandem with liposuction on the upper back also known as “bra rolls” to enhance the overall body contour and provide natural-looking results.
What Are the Benefits of Arm Liposuction?
Arm liposuction provides the following benefits to patients:
- Toned arms create a more youthful appearance;
- Arms will be better proportionate;
- Can confidently wear sleeveless clothing.
Arm Liposuction for Men
Men often turn to upper arm liposuction to help them get rid of fat deposits they were unable to address through diet and exercise. After arm liposuction removes fat deposits from the upper arm, men can hit the gym to work on building muscle in this area which tightens up the skin and creates tight muscular defined arms.

What Should I Expect from the Procedure?
During arm liposuction, the procedure is done only on the upper arm and armpit area but not on the forearms. The surgeon will take care to remove the optimal amount of fat and sculpt the area to ensure it is well contoured and the results look natural. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area and a few tiny incisions are made typically near the underarm and elbow to allow access for the removal of fat. Using smooth back and forth motions, the fat is broken up and suctioned out.
After arm liposuction, the surgeon will send the patient home, the same day, with aftercare instructions and prescriptions to prevent infection. Normally, a compression sleeve is worn on each arm for a designated area of time after the surgery. These compression sleeves help promote healing by putting even pressure across the liposuction areas to prevent excess fluid buildup and bruising. Most patients can return to work in just a few days but bruising can take a few months to resolve.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The fat cells that are removed during arm liposuction will not come back but fluctuations in weight can alter the remaining fat cells and change your results. The results of arm liposuction should be maintained through a healthy lifestyle and exercise. Depending on lifestyle and genetics, It may be necessary to have additional surgery as the aging process can cause any loose skin to sag.
