Arm Liposuction

Arm liposuction in Florida effectively addresses excess fat in the arms, arm flab, and the common concern of “bat wings,” resulting in slimmer and well-defined arms that enhance overall body contours. At Dr. Giselle’s renowned Exert Clinic, arm Xpress liposuction is a specialty that combines advanced technology with awake liposuction expertise to deliver exceptional results. If you’ve struggled to eliminate stubborn arm fat through conventional methods, such as exercise and diet, arm liposuction using Xpress lipo can give you the desired result.

What is Arm Liposuction?

By targeting and removing excess fat or arm flab, arm liposuction provides a surgical solution to contour the upper arms, resulting in a smooth arm contour and slimmer appearance that enhances overall aesthetics. This cosmetic procedure effectively addresses stubborn fat deposits, allowing individuals to achieve their desired aesthetic goals and enjoy improved arm contours.
When talking about arm liposuction, we commonly refer to liposuction of the upper arms. This liposuction surgery can be transformative as it profoundly affects the aesthetics of your arms. It can help balance your body shape and improve your physique. But the benefits aren’t just physical – many patients experience a significant boost in confidence and positive body image post-procedure.

The Xpress Lipo: Arm Lipo

Xpress lipo is an innovative technique that allows our patients to avoid using general anesthesia. It also includes Renuvion skin tightening to provide great outcomes and results.

Pain Management with Pro-Nox

Xpress Liposuction prioritizes patient comfort using Pro-Nox, a blend of inhaled oxygen and nitrous oxide. Pro-Nox provides quick and effective pain relief while keeping patients conscious and alert. It’s patient-controlled, allowing individuals to adjust nitrous oxide levels based on their pain tolerance. This method significantly reduces discomfort and eliminates the need for general anesthesia.

Administering Tumescent Local Anesthesia

Dr. Giselle then uses tumescent liposuction, where local anesthetic in the tumescent fluid numbs the treatment area. This method makes fat cells swollen and firm, facilitating their easy removal. It also reduces discomfort and numbs the entire area of liposuction. Consciousness during this procedure allows the patient to communicate with Dr. Giselle throughout the surgery.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

Power-assisted liposuction is performed once the targeted areas are numb and fat cells are prepared. The excess fat is detached and aspirated using a specially designed thin cannula and then vacuumed into a container. This method ensures the thorough and efficient removal of unwanted fat.

Renuvion Skin Tightening

Lastly, every Xpress Liposuction procedure incorporates Renuvion skin tightening to combat any excess skin. This minimally invasive treatment combines helium plasma and radiofrequency energy, which heats the collagen under the skin to the optimal temperature for tissue contraction. This process is rapid, and the tissue is immediately cooled, resulting in tightened and firmer skin.

Who is a candidate for arm liposuction surgery?

Candidate for arm liposuction surgery typically has stubborn fat deposits in their arms that don’t respond to regular diet and exercise. A good candidate should be in good overall health, have a stable body weight, and has realistic expectation about the result. As with any procedure, a thorough personal consultation with our qualified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Giselle, is necessary to determine suitability for arm liposuction.

Post-operative Expectations and Recovery Timeline after the arm liposuction procedure

After undergoing an arm liposuction procedure, it’s natural to expect some discomfort, including minor pain, swelling, and bruising. However, these symptoms are typically manageable with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medication and should subside within a few days.

Wearing compression garments post-procedure is vital for optimal results and recovery. This compression sleeve provides support, minimizes swelling, and helps contour the arm by maintaining even pressure on the treated area. You’ll be advised on the specific duration to wear these garments, typically for a few weeks, and instructions on how to care for your incision sites to prevent infection and promote healing.

Being a minimally invasive procedure, the recovery timeline for arm liposuction is significantly quicker than traditional liposuction. Most patients can expect to return to doing the usual physical activities within a week. However, strenuous exercises should be avoided for about two weeks to one month to ensure complete healing.

An excellent feature of our arm liposuction procedure is that patients can go home on the same day of the surgery because of the procedure’s minimally invasive nature and local anesthesia, significantly reducing recovery time.

As with any medical procedure, individual recovery times may vary, and it’s crucial to follow your surgeon’s post-operative care instructions closely for a swift and smooth recovery.

How much does liposuction cost in arms?

Arm liposuction cost varies from $2,000 to $7,000. The cost of arm liposuction isn’t a one-size-fits-all situation – it can change based on a few things. This includes how experienced your surgeon is, the details of your procedure, and where the clinic is located. Also, remember there could be extra costs like anesthesia, the surgical facility, and taking care of yourself after the surgery.
