Liposuction of the arms-Dr.Cortes Houston Plastic Surgeon-Youtube

18th Oct 2018

Liposuction can be performed in many different areas in the body, and the arms are not an exception. When it comes to arm liposuction, surgeons typically perform this procedure on the back of the arm. If you look at the diagram of the arm, what is considered the anterior arm (where the biceps are) is an area that is typically does not accumulate a lot of fat and most plastic surgeons will not do liposuction in this area. Liposuction is performed on the back of the arm since this is the area where the fat is mainly accumulated after gaining weight. The same principles of liposuction apply to the arms where tumescent anesthesia is injected and then liposuction is performed until the contour is satisfactory. Typically, attention is to be paid mainly to the area that is closer to the armpit. This is where some patients develop excess skin. For this reason, a brachioplasty combined with liposuction would be a better option for you. You need to understand the limitations of the procedure where liposuction can be done and if in fact we need to remove excess skin after liposuction is performed. Understanding this concept will allow you to have a better result and you will be satisfied with the procedure.
