Arm liposculpture is performed when there is excessive fat in the arm area. There are many areas on the arm that can be treated with liposculpture. Liposuction of the arms gives a slimmer appearance which will give the rest of the body a more contoured look and feel. Liposuction can be performed on the outer arms. People often notice when they are wearing clothes that there is a thickening and bulging of the outer arms. This can be improved with liposculpture. Also, liposuction can be performed to enhance the muscular look of the arms, more specifically the deltoid and trapezius muscles.
Arm liposuction can be done as part of a full-body liposculpture procedure or as a stand-alone. If it is by itself, it would usually be done under local anaesthetic. The tumescent fluid is infiltrated into the fat which numbs and softens it, followed by the suctioning and removal of the fat.
Weight reduction is always useful to help with any form of liposuction, but arm fat is often more of a genetic problem and will not necessarily change with a lot of weight reduction.
Unwanted fat in certain areas can be difficult to remove in some cases. Dr Lanzer and his associates often see patients who are in good physical condition, enjoy a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Yet, despite this healthy lifestyle, these patients can still encounter problems with persistent fat deposits. For these patients, fat removal with various liposuction techniques can provide a solution.
So, while liposuction is never a solution for weight loss, it can help with body contouring in patients who are already on their target weight and have a good physique. It can tackle problem areas such as love handles, outer thighs, abdomen, and in some cases the arms.
In some cases, the cosmetic surgeon may need to remove excess skin from the arms; this happens when the patient has lost a considerable amount of weight but is left with excess skin on the arms. While compression garments can be used to provide more skin tightening on the treated area, some patients have too much skin for that to occur naturally. In these cases, a body sculpting procedure can involve skin removal as well.
Ideally, patients wear a sling compression garment on their arms for a 2-week period. This will help with skin contraction and tightening. Patients who have a general anaesthetic should avoid signing any important documents for at least 48 hours after their cosmetic procedure. They should also avoid making any important decisions for at least 48 hours after their liposuction surgery.
Patients must expect some side effects after liposuction treatment, which are commonly associated with surgical body contouring procedures. Most patients experience some degree of bruising around the treatment area, which subsides over the course of your recovery time. The compression garment can also help to reduce some of the bruising and swelling that can be experienced after tumescent liposuction.
Some patients heal within the estimated timeframe, while others heal a little quicker. It is therefore important to listen to your own body during your recovery. Do not force anything too soon and do some light walking during your downtime to promote the healing process.

During a liposuction procedure, the surgeon solely focuses on the removal of fat cells from a certain area, while liposculpture is meant to remove fat cells and re-sculpt a certain area of the patient’s body. The term liposculpture and liposuction are used interchangeably, but they can be quite different depending on the techniques used by the surgeon.
Because of the method we are using for liposculpture, as well as the techniques and devices, the skin nearly always contracts and tightens. Usually, we will be able to show very good before and after photos of how the skin was sagging down and how it is elevated after that.
Liposculpture can be performed on many areas of the body; this includes the chest, thighs, arms, abdomen, and more. Want to determine if the treatment area you have in mind is suitable for liposculpture, please contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic for more information.
These are common areas to perform liposculpture. There is a small area on the front of the chest called the anterior axilla, between the breast and the arm. Patients often have a small bulge of fat in this area, and this can easily be removed with liposculpture.
Under the arms, on the side of the chest, is another common area for women to collect fat. By taking fat from here it does make the arm appear a little bit slimmer. Often the fat from the arm extends onto the back, so liposuction on the upper back could also be an option for some patients. Doing this will enhance the appearance of the arms too.

The cost for arm liposuction can vary considerably from patient to patient. This is largely due to the fact that each patient is unique. While some patients only need a small amount of fat removed from the arms, other may require a little more. In turn, this influences the complexity of the procedure and subsequently its cost. It is therefore recommended to get a quote directly from your chosen clinic to ensure the most accurate cost estimate for your procedure.
Since fat cells are physically removed from the arms, the surgeon can sculpt the arms and create a considerable difference compared to before the surgery. Of course, the patient must let the swelling subside before evaluating the results.
Any remaining scars are subject to the technique used by the surgeon. Your cosmetic surgeon can give you a better idea of what to expect after your procedure.
We perform liposculpture of the arms both in our Malvern day surgery centre in Melbourne and in the D’Lumière Esthétique clinic in Sydney. To make an appointment, simply contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic via telephone or the website contact form.
It is uncommon for men to have fat in their arms, but it can be done.
It is a very unlikely place to collect fat and it is nearly always on the upper arms.
That is an interesting question. We do see genetics where stubborn fat does occur in different areas of the body, and sometimes family members can experience similar issues in that area. However, there is no definite guarantee that children will have exactly that problem. It is common for me to see patients come in for treatments because they said that their parents have a similar problem. I particularly see this on fat around the neck, since this is one of the most common problems encountered at my clinic.
