Arm Liposculpture

Arm liposculpture is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is executed often at the clinic. Patients obtain this procedure to remove excess fat from the arms, but also to give their arms a more defined appearance. So, contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not a solution or treatment that provides weight loss. Curious if arm liposculpture is suitable for your needs?

When Is Arm Liposculpture Performed?

When Is Arm Liposculpture Performed?

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.

How Does Liposculpture work?

How Does Liposculpture work?

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.

    Would Weight Reduction Help with Arm Liposuction?

    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. Our surgeons 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.

    What to Expect After the Procedure?



    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.

    Side effects

    Side effects

    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.


    How long does it take to recover?

    How long does it take to recover?

    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.

    What Else Do I Need to Know About Liposculpture?

    What Is Liposuction vs. Liposculpture?

    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 terms liposculpture and liposuction are used interchangeably, but they can be quite different depending on the techniques used by the surgeon.

    What Will Happen to the Loose Skin?

    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 well before and after photos of how the skin was sagging down and how it is elevated after that.

    Where Else Can Liposculpture Be Performed?

    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 clinic for more information.

    What About the Area Adjacent to the Arms, Around the Chest?

    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.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Arm Liposuction

    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, others 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 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.
