Arm Lift vs Arm Liposuction : What Factors Should You Consider When Choosing One Procedure Over The Other?
If you are looking for a procedure that will help you get rid of the fat around your arms, then arm liposuction or arm lift is a solution. But which procedure is better to choose?
Arm lipo and arm lift are both meant as solutions to arm fat and can be done together or separately. You might want to consider how much fat needs to be removed and where it should be removed before deciding on one procedure over the other. Arm lifts remove excess skin while arm liposuction removes fat under the skin.
If the excess skin is only in one area, then an arm lift might do the trick without any concern for removing too much weight. Arm lifts are also less expensive than an arm liposuction, but expect your recovery time to take about two weeks longer with this option. On the other hand, if you have more than a handful of areas with excessive skin and/or lots of fat under your skin that needs removal, then it becomes financially beneficial.
What is Arm Liposuction?
It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure for removing localized fat deposits in the body. It usually involves the removal of excessive skin and subcutaneous tissue and can be used to treat a variety of conditions such as large arm fat, loose skin, and areas of localized fat deposits.
Arm Liposuction is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, under general anesthesia. The surgeon will insert a cannula – which resembles a hollow tube – into the fatty area to break down the cells via suction. Anesthetic is used to numb the site during surgery. It takes approximately 1-2 hours to complete one side on both arms depending on size.
Doing Arm Liposuction surgery has many benefits such as
- tightening up loose skin on your upper arms,
- reducing stubborn arm fat, and
- getting rid of those unsightly bulges in your armpits or bra line by removing excess subcutaneous tissue like inchworm rolls that show up when you lift your arms over your head.
This clinical procedure has become more popular in recent years due to its safety and efficacy.
What is Arm lift?
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can reshape sagging arms for a more toned look. This procedure is typically performed on the underside of the arm and involves a surgeon removing excess skin and fat from the upper arm.
