What Is Arm Lipo?

Arm lipo is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat from the upper arm area. It involves inserting a cannula (thin tube) under the skin to suction out fat deposits. Dr. Zach uses VASER® technology to improve the effectiveness and safety of liposuction with ultrasonic waves. The typical duration of this surgery is 1-2 hours. The results of arm lipo tend to be permanent as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained.

Consultation & Preparation for Arm Lipo

Before undergoing arm liposuction, a consultation with Dr. Zach is scheduled to discuss the patient’s goals, medical history, and procedure details. The surgeon evaluates the arms and develops a treatment plan. He also explains the benefits and potential risks of this surgery. Then, Dr. Zach provides the following instructions for preparation:

Arm Lipo Procedure


Dr. Zach injects a tumescent solution containing lidocaine to numb the treatment area. This medication blocks pain signals to the brain during the procedure. Local or general anesthesia can be used for arm lipo. These options will be discussed with the patient.

The surgeon makes 1-3 tiny incisions where the cannula (thin tube) is inserted to suction out fat. These openings are usually created in unnoticeable sites to avoid visible scarring. However, the exact location of incisions depends on the distribution of fat in the upper arm.

Dr. Zach uses a VASER® probe that breaks up fat with ultrasonic waves. This tissue is then suctioned out with low pressure. The following techniques may be utilized:

  • tunneling – careful back-and-forth motions with a cannula

  • crisscrossing – creating a crosshatch pattern under the skin by moving the probe in intersecting directions

  • fanning – following a fan-shaped pattern from a single incision point

Once the desired reduction has been achieved, the surgeon closes the small incisions with sutures. Steri-Strips® or bandages may also be applied. In general, the arm liposuction procedure takes 1-2 hours.

Add-On: Arm Lift Surgery

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, can be a great addition. After fat is extracted by liposuction, excess skin may still remain. An arm lift procedure removes this sagging skin, helping to make the upper arm region more toned and slim. It essentially finishes the rejuvenation process, which starts with liposuction. After undergoing arm lift surgery, the skin becomes tighter and smoother.

Recovery After Arm Lipo

The recovery period usually lasts 2 weeks. There will be some swelling, bruising, and soreness around the treatment area. This is normal. Patients must wear their compression garments for the first 1-2 weeks, as instructed by Dr. Zach. They help minimize swelling and support the tissues. Patients should take it easy and avoid strenuous activity during recovery. Gentle mobility exercises for the arms may help prevent stiffness. Any discomfort can be managed with pain medication if needed.

Patients must follow all post-operative instructions from Dr. Zach regarding wound care, activity restrictions, and compression garment use. They should also notify our surgeon about any unusual pain, bleeding, or other issues. With proper self-care, patients can see their final arm lipo results after the swelling has fully gone down, which usually takes 6-8 weeks.

Candidates for Arm Lipo

Arm lipo is a versatile procedure that benefits a wide range of people. It is appropriate for both men and women of any age, except children. Here are the main characteristics of candidates:

Skin Elasticity

The skin on the upper arms must be elastic to achieve the best contouring results. Liposuction works by removing fat cells, so the remaining skin should be able to retract nicely. People with poor elasticity may require an arm lift to tighten loose skin after fat is extracted.
Patients should be generally healthy before undergoing arm lipo. Those with chronic medical conditions like diabetes or heart disease may not be ideal candidates. A strong immune system can help facilitate healing and minimize the risk of infection after surgery.

Being a non-smoker is also preferred since tobacco and similar products affect blood circulation and may interfere with wound healing. Patients should communicate any health concerns with Dr. Zach ahead of time.

Candidates must have realistic expectations about the procedure. Arm lipo can dramatically reduce localized fat pockets, but it cannot fix issues like cellulite and the lack of muscle tone. Being prepared for the recovery process helps to ensure optimal outcomes.
