Liposuction of the Arms



What is Arm Liposuction?

The goal of liposuction of the back of the arms is a reduction of the fat to reveal the underlying toned triceps muscle, allow a more comfortable fit in sleeves and to feel more attractive in sleeveless or short-sleeved blouses and dresses. These are goals that are usually realistic for most women who are seeking liposuction of the arms.

Candidates for Arms Liposuction

Many women are genetically predisposed to fat accumulation on the back of the upper arms, the area that overlies the triceps muscle. Even with the most dedicated exercise regimen for the triceps muscle, it is tough to sculpt this area without help. Women complain that they know they have a firm and toned triceps muscle, but it is hidden beneath a layer of fat.

How Does It Work?

Arm liposuction works by administering tumescent anesthesia to the patient, so her treatment area is completely numbed. If desired, providing the patient with ProNox, a form of nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) that helps the patient be completely relaxed and comfortable during the procedure that is performed while she is awake. Making a small incision in the treatment area for the liposuction tube, called a cannula. Using the cannula in a gentle, back and forth motion to remove stubborn fatty deposits in the back of the arms.

The most attractive result of arm liposuction is when there is a reduction of fat, but not total removal of the fat of the back of the arms. When too much fat is taken, the arm can appear too thin. A small amount of residual fat left as a smooth layer under the skin is the best outcome.


Recovery from arm liposuction is usually straightforward. The arms will feel sore, like an intense workout. There aren’t restrictions on activity, and it is best to go back to normal activities including lift as soon as soreness permits.
