When you’re not happy with the appearance of your arms, it can really limit your clothing choices. Many people feel self-conscious in strapless dresses, tank tops, bathing suits, and short sleeves because of excess arm fat. Larger arms can make you look heavier overall and affect the balance of your figure.
To alleviate this problem, many people try weight-loss programs. They may find that even when the pounds drop, fat on the arms tends to persist. Some people may also try lifting weights and doing arm strengthening exercises. These are great for your health, but they won’t effectively eliminate those extra pockets of fat.
So how can you get slimmer, sexier arms that you’re proud to show?
Real results for beautiful arms
The answer is in your cosmetic surgeon’s office: liposuction. Commonly assumed to only work on areas like the abdomen and thighs, liposuction is actually a very versatile and effective procedure. It works well on areas like the arms, back, and even the neck to remove stubborn pockets of fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise. It’s a secret that many celebrities and everyday people are using to get rid of that embarrassing “arm jiggle.”
A qualified cosmetic surgeon who is skilled in liposuction can help you achieve the toned arms you’ve always wanted. With today’s technology, liposuction can be done with a smaller, slimmer, cannula, which means smaller incisions and minimal scarring. In addition, the SmartLipoTM laser can help tighten the skin and minimize bruising and swelling. This gives you a sleeker, tighter appearance along with faster healing time.
How to get started
If you’re interested in learning more about liposuction and how it may improve your figure, make an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss your options. During your consultation, you can discuss your expectations and find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Most liposuction patients need to have skin that is firm and elastic to get the most aesthetically pleasing result. In addition, you should be in good health and not be planning to lose a significant amount of weight in the future. But people of many shapes and sizes can benefit from liposuction — and you don’t have to be at your ideal weight to enjoy its benefits.
Liposuction is typically done as an outpatient procedure, and you’ll likely be able to go back to work within two weeks or less. Liposuction has a very high success — and satisfaction — rate when performed by a skilled cosmetic surgeon. If you’ve been hiding your arms and haven’t gotten good results with diet and exercise, consider talking with a cosmetic surgeon about your options.
