What is arm lipo?

Arm liposuction, arm fat removal, and arm lift treatment are all names for the removal of fat in the upper arms.

This cosmetic procedure will remove excess fat and eliminate fat deposits in the arms that just won't budge with diet and exercise.

Fat removal helps to contour and define the upper arm area, improving confidence, choice of clothing, and overall quality of life.

Depending on your skin laxity, you can achieve much slimmer, toned-looking upper arms with just one surgery.

Why do people get arm liposuction?

A surgical arm lift can greatly reduce the appearance of bingo wings and larger arms that form as a result of ageing and weight changes.

Often those who have experienced significant weight loss also have excess skin in this area, making them look much older than they are.

Sadly, there's only so much you can do with diet and exercise, and bingo wings are one of the harder areas of the body to tone up.

As a result, people tend to wear clothing that covers their arms and feel self-conscious when wearing swimwear.

Lipo in the upper arms can increase confidence, prevent chafing, and motivate the patients to pursue a healthier lifestyle.

What to expect from arm lift procedures

Arm lipo is usually performed under local anaesthetic, with Vaser liposuction methods used to break down the fat cells.

The procedure is known for being minimally invasive and helps to improve the appearance of bingo wings and loose skin.

When the anaesthetic has taken effect, a fluid is injected into the target area before a Vaser probe is inserted, which emits ultrasound pulses to turn the fat into a liquid. This liquid fat is then extracted.

With us, you have the choice between being a day or night patient. Day patients can make their way home once they receive the go-ahead from their MYA nurse, while night patients have a one-night stay to recover from the anaesthetic.

Arm lift surgery recovery process

Like any surgical procedure, recovery is key to achieving your desired look.

It's important you rest properly for a few weeks, avoid heavy lifting, and take a step back in your exercise routine. Put your feet up and follow the advice of the MYA team for a healthy and happy recovery. 

With arm liposuction, compression garments are provided to reduce swelling. These must be worn 24/7 for 4-6 weeks to aid healing and protect the incision sites.

Swelling and bruising are normal and nothing to worry about. By following the provided aftercare advice, and attending post-op appointments, you'll notice these reducing over time.

However, if this continues and you're experiencing any abnormal pain, we have a 24/7 helpline for advice and support.
