Flab along the triceps and underside of the armIf you’re struggling to get well-defined shoulders and triceps, you’re not alone. Even if you go to the gym regularly and eat healthy, you may have a stubborn bit of body fat that keeps your upper arm area flabby. That’s when Dr. David Passaretti can help.

By performing liposuction on the arms, you can look far more athletic and fit. We’ve helped numerous people in Darien and Fairfield County, CT get chiseled arms thanks to arm liposuction. Let’s go over the benefits of this procedure below.

What Is Arm Liposuction?

Arm liposuction involves the removal of stubborn pockets of fat from the shoulder and tricep area. By removing these pockets of unwanted fat, it’s possible to create better defined and chiseled arms.

Ideal Candidates for Arm Liposuction

Good candidates for arm liposuction are people who have unwanted body fat in the shoulder and tricep area that has not responded to weight training, cardio, and a healthy diet. They should be in good overall health and not suffer from any medical conditions that would make liposuction a risk to wellness.

Keep in mind that liposuction is not intended for weight loss. Candidates for arm liposuction will have lost as much unwanted body fat as they can through healthy and natural means. We can go over further issues for candidacy during the consultation process.

Will There Be Scars from the Procedure?

Scarring is a reality after any sort of surgical procedure. That said, the incisions made during liposuction are very small, which means only minor scarring around the arms, mostly located in the armpit and the underside of the arm. With proper aftercare, the scars should fade away on their own in the months after surgery.

Arm liposuction patients will not have to be too concerned about concealing scars from view. They will have the freedom to wear short sleeves and go sleeveless. If you have a history of serious scarring from previous surgical procedures, we will take that into account when developing your treatment plan.

The Results of Arm Liposuction

The results of an arm liposuction can be extremely dramatic. Patients no longer have to deal with flabby, drooping, unsightly arms. Now they can have the athletic and toned shoulders and triceps that they have always wanted.

Since a small amount of fat is removed during surgery, the results will appear natural. To maintain the outcomes of surgery, patients should continue to eat right and exercise regularly.

Arm Liposuction vs. Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

While arm liposuction is ideal for flabby arms, it is not a great option for loose, sagging skin of the triceps and underarm area. This is a common problem as a result of aging and dramatic weight loss. In these situations, the best option for patients is to undergo an arm lift. This procedure removes the loose skin on the underside of the arm, helping you looking much trimmer and slimmer.

During your visit to the practice, we can go over all treatment options available to help you look your best and feel great about the way you look.
