Should You Include Liposuction with Your Arm Lift?

woman in swimsuitWhen it comes to achieving sleek and toned arms, many people turn to upper arm contouring procedures. One popular option is an arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, which aims to remove excess skin and tighten the underlying tissues of the upper arm. However, in recent years, a combination procedure called arm lift with liposuction, or liposuction-assisted brachioplasty, has been gaining attention. This raises the question: should you include liposuction with your arm lift?

Why Choose an Arm Lift with Liposuction?

An arm lift primarily addresses sagging or drooping skin on the upper arms, which commonly occurs due to aging, significant weight loss, or genetics. On the other hand, liposuction targets stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

By combining liposuction with an arm lift, you can achieve more comprehensive results. Liposuction can effectively remove excess fat from the upper arms, enhancing the arm’s overall shape and definition. When performed alongside an arm lift, liposuction can provide a more balanced outcome, ensuring that the arms not only appear firmer but also have a smoother and more sculpted appearance.

What to Consider Before Liposuction-Assisted Brachioplasty

If you do not have many fat deposits and your main concern is sagging skin, a traditional arm lift might be the way to go. However, if you have substantial fat deposits, including liposuction with your arm lift can help achieve better results. Dr. Kramer will assess your unique situation and recommend the most appropriate approach based on your individual goals and physical characteristics.

It’s important to note that combining liposuction with an arm lift may involve a longer and more complex surgery compared to a traditional arm lift. The recovery process might also be slightly more involved. However, the benefits, including enhanced arm contouring and improved confidence, are definitely worth it.

Ultimately, the decision to have an arm lift with liposuction should be made after consulting with Dr. Kramer, a board-certified plastic surgeon. He will evaluate your specific needs, expectations, and medical history to recommend the most suitable treatment plan for upper arm contouring.
