Liposuction on arms address excess sagging skin and fat and results in slimmer and attractive upper arms. Many surgeons in NYC perform the procedure using Smartlipo technology. This laser treatment involves liquefying the fat for easy removal and tightening the underlying tissue. It improves the disproportionate appearance of the arms and creates smoother and tighter upper arm contour. While this minimally invasive procedure is an effective alternative to traditional liposuction surgery, many patients want to know if there are any risks that might be associated with the treatment.
A Manhattan plastic surgeon who is specially trained in performing the procedure would tell you that Smartlipo of the arms is safe and effective. Of course, as with all cosmetic surgical procedures, Smartlipo treatment also comes with certain risks, though these are minimal. Similar to traditional liposuction, the possible risks include uneven or asymmetrical results. The other possible risk of liposuction is fluid collection beneath the skin, but with Smartlipo, this is less likely to occur compared to traditional liposuction. Smartlipo is also better at addressing the batwing problem. However, the extreme cases of batwings can only be corrected with an arm lift.
There are also chances of burns from the laser but this can be avoided to a great extent when a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon performs the procedure. The surgeon would use the intelligent delivery systems of the SmartLipo system device to monitor skin temperature and regulate the flow of energy accordingly.
The arms are a delicate very visible area with many important structures and need a delicate technique and good skin tightening.So when it comes to outcomes, Smartlipo is a better option as it involves small cannulas. The other benefits of Smartlipo laser liposuction on arms are:
- Reduced liposuction treatment time and less downtime
- Less bleeding and bruising
- Proven tissue coagulation resulting in tightening
- High-definition sculpting capabilities
- Faster recovery compared to traditional liposuction
Being a suitable candidate and having realistic expectations is crucial for any cosmetic procedure. The right surgeon will evaluate your considerations, discuss your goals as well as risks, and guide you in taking an informed decision.
