Arm Fat Removal
Arm Fat Reduction Surgery
Most patients have the highest satisfaction with arm liposuction or arm fat removal surgery. It can be done through cannulas which provide amazing results. The procedure is mostly done for women, and having liposuction in the arms provides an overall thinner appearance. Your arms are aesthetically important parts of the body, so the arm fat reduction surgery gives you more confidence in wearing short sleeves.
Therefore, if you do not like how your arm looks from having excess fats, we are here to provide a safe quality procedure. With Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL), you will get rid of these uncomfortable and unattractive extra fat tissues. We will get you back to your young self with nicely contoured, natural-looking arms after the arm fat reduction surgery.
Types of Arm Liposuction
There are numerous types of arm liposuction. They include;
- Suction-Assisted Liposuction– This procedure is carried out traditionally using a syringe or any traditional suction methods.
- Power-Assisted Liposuction– An external power supply is used to drive the cannula.
- Nutational InfrasonicLiposuction– This is where the tip of the cannula is continuously vibrated using air-pressure to break the fat deposits before suction. This is what we provide at London Liposuction Clinic.
- Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction-Ultrasound is used to break down the fats right before suction.
- Laser-Assisted Liposuction– The procedure uses a laser during the liposuction process.
Things to Consider Before Arm Liposuction
Arm fat removal surgery may be conducted if the patient has tried other conventional means to remove the fats, for instance, a strict diet and/or exercise. You should also keep in mind that the procedure is not a substitute for diet control or regular exercise. If you overlook them, there is a high chance that fat will appear again after the procedure, rendering liposuction less effective.
To achieve the best results, there are a lot of factors that need to be taken into consideration. For instance, the skin should have enough elasticityto prevent the arm from appearing flabby after the surgery. If the skin drops after the procedure, you may require a surgical arm lift to counter the sagginess of the skin. You can check out the arm fat surgery before and after results to get the exact idea.
Additionally, we have to assess the patient’s medical history, carry out several tests and physical examinations to make sure the patient is fit for liposuction. Some of the tests the patient will undergo include ECG to determine the heart condition and several blood tests.
How we Conduct the Procedure
At London Liposuction Clinic, we provide the Arm fat removal procedure with local anaesthesia. You remain awake during the whole procedure with minimal or no pain at all. The incision markings are made on the skin with the arm elevated at 90 degrees and inclination at the elbow.
Local anaesthesia is administered using a technique called Klein©tumescent local anaesthesia. This method is used to permeate the local anaesthetic formula that containsLidocaine, Adrenaline, and Sodium Bicarbonate, mixed in Sodium Chloride saline solution. Lidocaine makes the treated body area numb while Adrenaline helps to control blood loss and Sodium Bicarbonate assists in neutralizing the acidity of the solution; hence reducing the pain caused by infiltration.
After the local anaesthesia is reached, the incisions are made to the marked points. A cannula which is connected to the liposuction machine is introduced via the incision so that liposuction can be carried out. Following the procedure, compression garments are used around the arms to reduce swelling and bleeding.
