Liposuction & Arm Lift

Undergoing arm liposuction at NYC Lipo can enhance arm lift surgery by improving definition and contours of the upper and lower arms. Many factors can contribute to bulging or hanging arms. Excess weight gain can detract from the appearance of firm-looking arms, as can skin laxity caused by aging or substantial weight loss. As arm skin begins to hang and sag, “bat wings,” or arm bulges found on the lower arms, begin to form. The presence of drooping skin is not only a cosmetic concern for patients, but it can also lead to chafing, irritation, and rashes during physical activity, as the arms rub against the rest of the body. Arm liposuction can remove excess arm fat to promote slender-looking arms. Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, can remove and reposition excess arm skin to reduce sagging. Together, arm lipo and arm lift can create slimmer, toned arms for patients. Our arm liposuction doctors at NYC Lipo utilize numerous lipo techniques, including minimally invasive options and traditional lipo procedures, to achieve long-lasting results.

How Do Liposuction & Arm Lift Work?

Arm liposuction in NYC uses specialized cannulas to suction fat cells from the arms. These tiny cannulas are inserted under the skin through minimally invasive incisions. Excess fat is gently removed from the upper and lower arms through these cannulas to reduce the amount of stubborn arm fat. Arm lipo also results in skin firming benefits for patients. Minimally invasive liposuction techniques use heat energy to promote the contraction of tissues under the skin, leading to skin tightening results.

Arm lift surgery focuses on eliminating drooping arm skin through two steps. First, excess skin is removed and trimmed to reduce sagginess. Once this skin is removed, remaining arm skin is re-draped and repositioned to create firmer-looking arm contours. There are numerous arm lift techniques available, depending on the amount of hanging skin present. Patients can target certain areas of the arms, including the upper, lower, and inner arms. Additionally, a combination of areas can be treated at once. Dr. Levine will discuss which arm lift procedure is ideal for you during your consultation at our NYC office.

Can Liposuction & Arm Lift Be Used Alongside Other Procedures?

Yes. Arm liposuction and arm lift can be used in conjunction with other body sculpting or liposuction procedures to achieve optimal results, including breast augmentation, breast lift, back lift, tummy tuck, body lift, SmartLipo®, and VASER® LipoSelection. Dr. Levine will discuss which procedures may best enhance your arm lift results.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Arm Liposuction & Arm Lift Treatment?

Arm liposuction and arm lift surgery can achieve optimal results by trimming excess fat and skin from the arms, while repositioning hanging skin for added definition. Patients who have experienced weight gain around the arms and are looking to eliminate stubborn fat are candidates for arm lipo. Additionally, patients who cannot reduce excess arm fat, despite dieting and exercise, can opt for arm liposuction in NYC for firmer-looking arms. If you have hanging arm skin as a result of aging or substantial weight loss, undergoing an arm lift can eliminate arm sagging for youthful-looking arms. Dr. Levine will discuss if arm liposuction and arm lift surgery is right for you during your consultation at our New York office.

What Type Of Anesthesia Is Involved During My Liposuction & Arm Lift Procedure?

Either general or twilight anesthesia is required during your arm liposuction and arm lift procedure and dependent on your specific goals and needs. Dr. Levine will discuss whether a general or twilight anesthetic is ideal for your arm lipo and arm lift surgery during your consultation at our New York City office.

What Can I Expect After Undergoing Arm Liposuction & Arm Lift In NYC?

Patients who undergo arm lift surgery and arm liposuction in NYC usually experience one to two weeks of downtime before returning to work. Patients may need additional healing time before returning to physical activities, such as exercise. Bruising and swelling around the arm is also common and lasts a few weeks. The specifics of recovery vary from patient to patient.

What Kind Of Liposuction & Arm Lift Results Can I Expect?

You can expect long-lasting improvements to your arms when pairing arm liposuction with arm lift surgery. Excess fat is removed and hanging skin is trimmed or re-draped to create slender curves and shapely contours around the upper, lower, and inner arms. Arm lipo and arm lift can yield natural-looking, symmetrical results, as well.

How Can I Maximize My Liposuction & Arm Lift Results?

In order to maximize your liposuction and arm lift results, it is important to follow all pre and post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Levine.

Pre-Care
Certain products and supplements should be avoided in the weeks prior to your liposuction and arm lift procedure, unless medically necessary. By doing so, patients minimize their risk of bruising and swelling. Blood-thinners and medications that contain ibuprofen or aspirin should be avoided. Patients should also refrain from taking multivitamins and herbal supplements.

Post-Procedure
Certain medications, including Tylenol, Bromelain, and Arnica Montana, may be recommended to alleviate pain or discomfort post-procedure. For more details regarding our liposuction and arm lift aftercare suggestions, click here.
