Arm liposuction in NYC reduces excess sagging skin and fat in the upper arms, tightens the underlying tissue and improves the disproportionate appearance of the arms. Flabby upper arms can make your arms look older, unfit and can ruin your entire look even if you have a perfect figure. Also, excess fat in the upper arms can make you feel self-conscious when wearing a tank top, short sleeves or other sleeveless outfits.
Aging, genetics, weight gain, gravity and lack of exercise are the factors that cause accumulation of fat in the upper arms. Upper arm fat is so stubborn that it is very difficult to get rid of with even rigorous diet and exercise. Arm liposuction can remove loose skin and excess fat in the upper arm area to result in slimmer, firmer, and youthful looking upper arms.
The ideal candidate for arm liposuction is a person who has:
- Stubborn, excess fat in the upper arm area
- Good skin tone and elasticity
- Good physical, mental and emotional health and should be free from any active diseases or other pre-existing medical conditions.
- Realistic expectations about the results
A person who had surgery on the lymph nodes in the armpit or upper chest area such as having lymph nodes removed during a mastectomy or lumpectomy is not a good candidate for upper arm liposuction.
In leading NYC plastic surgery practices, the procedure is performed using the minimally-invasive Smartlipo Triplex laser lipolysis system. The device liquefies the fat using laser energy so that it can be easily removed via suction. With this FDA approved device, patients experience less pain, discomfort, scarring, bleeding, bruising and swelling than traditional liposuction. This safe and effective laser technology helps tighten the skin and shortens procedure time, downtime and recovery time. Laser liposuction requires only local anesthesia and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
If you are considering arm liposuction in NYC, make sure you undergo the procedure in an AAAASF accredited plastic surgery practice. It is essential to choose a surgeon who has extensive experience in performing the procedure and skill utilizing Smartlipo technology. Viewing before and after photos of real patients who underwent the procedure at the facility will help you get an idea about the effectiveness of the procedure, and better understand your prospects as well as the range of potential outcomes that you can expect. A reliable surgeon will inform you about the risks and benefits associated with the procedure and guide you in taking an informed decision.
