WHAT IS ARM LIPOSUCTION?
Arm liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes extra fat from your upper arms. Even if you exercise, you may not be able to tone this area. Toning your upper arms can be discouraging. It is an area that retains stubborn fat, and this is the most difficult type of fat to eliminate from your body. Even when you build muscle, you may not achieve the contours that you desire. Liposuction in the upper arm area removes the fatty bulges to give you real results.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ARM LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction gives your upper arms a slender appearance by reducing localized fat that develops with age and changes in your weight. Arm fat liposuction may be combined with hand liposuction to give your entire arm a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. If you have thinning skin on your hands, you may be a good candidate for fat injections rather than liposuction on your hands. Liposuction can also be used for shoulder fat removal to further sculpt the upper part of your arm.
CANDIDATES FOR ARM LIPOSUCTION
Upper arm liposuction is less invasive than surgery, and it typically only requires local anesthesia and a sedative. This makes it an ideal option for people who may not be good candidates for general anesthesia. You should have good skin laxity, as well. If you do have some loose skin, we may recommend one of our skin tightening treatments after your recovery from arm liposuction.
HOW IS ARM LIPOSUCTION PERFOMED?
Arm sculpting procedures with liposuction are less invasive than surgery, such as an arm lift. A series of incisions measuring 1/8” to ½” are made in your upper arm area. A cannula is inserted through the incision, and the arm laser liposuction device melts the excess fat cells. The cannula is equipped with a suction device that removes the fat. Liposuction allows for the precise sculpting of a flabby upper arm to create a natural appearance.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ARM LIPOSUCTION
ARM LIPOSUCTION AT VIP MEDI SPA
THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH US
We invite you to relax as you look forward to the incredible results that your arm liposuction procedure will offer.
At VIP Medi Spa, we offer liposuction services that are tailored to the individual’s needs, including:
- Tumescent Lipo, where fluid is injected into the upper arms before the fat is removed through a cannula with a suction device.
- SmartLipo, this body sculpting technique uses laser to melt the fat, which is removed through a gentle suction.
- LaserLipo, a minimally invasive technology that liquefies fat which is then removed through a cannula.
- Lipodissolve, this is injected directly, dissolving and emulsifying the fat deposits.
Results vary from person to person, depending on the extent of the surgery, the type of liposuction and the size of the removed fat deposits.
ARM LIPOSUCTION RECOVERY
An arm compression bandage is used after lipo to hold the tissues in place and minimize swelling. Recovery from arm liposuction takes up to four weeks. Your arm liposuction recovery may be shorter if you are having only a small amount of fat removed. Due to the small size of the incisions, arm liposuction scars are difficult to see. Initially, the incisions heal with a scar that is slightly pink. Over the following 12 months, the scars change to a color that is a little darker than the surrounding skin.
RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH ARM LIPOSUCTION
Risks and complications associated with arm liposuction are rare, and it is important to have the procedure performed by an experienced aesthetic physician. Inconsistent results are the most common issue with arm liposculpture. This includes indentations and other irregularities with the upper arm contours. Moderate scarring is another rare complication of lipo for the upper arms. Infection may occur, as well, after liposuction for skinny arms.

what our patients say
"I definitely plan on utilizing VIP MediSpa as much as I can."
"I’d like to say thanks to Dr. Grishkevich and his staff for making my procedure so painless and easy. I am very pleased with the results and still don’t recognize the person standing in the mirror!"
"Great service! Absolutely the best SPA I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide."
"Thank you all for everything! I will continue to “dance” through life and look as good as I feel!!"
"I just want you all to know how much I appreciate your office and staff. I am doing well – it has been nearly two weeks. I am still sore but the bruising is going away nicely. I am still a little swollen but can definitely see and feel the difference I was hoping for. I thought it was pretty funny when Dr. Max was so candid and said – “I hope you don’t think you will ever have a completely flat tummy…” No, believe me after 5 kids – 4 births – and my mid-life I just don’t want to feel pregnant anymore and that is how I felt. So I already feel better in my clothes and my ego at this stage of my life is good. My emotions are in check right now and I am starting to think about my future as a single, but elderly lady. Thanks so much for the boost. Good work, everyone. Keep it up! I will check in the next time I am in Portland."
"I love it when I look in the mirror now!! The difference is remarkable. I feel that I look natural, but so much better. It is such a joy to come into the spa, the staff is so warm, and make you welcome. You have a lifetime client and friend. Thank you!!"
"Dr. Max and staff are the best! I love the results of SmartLipo so far so good and I will be back for more!"
"Dr. Max, Sonja and the entire staff make my visits feel relaxed and welcoming. I am so happy with my results! Dr. Max is a perfectionist, which is exactly what I wanted. He is caring! Never condescending. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the procedure or Dr. Max to anyone."
"My experience at VIP MediSpa gave me freedom to be the young and healthy me that I feel I am – and to look the part. For the first time in many years I am not ashamed of my body! After years of wishing there was just some way to really be rid of my cellulite, I finally actually achieved what I thought might be impossible, and sometimes it still seems too good to be true. I would do it again in a second. Nothing that I experienced in my mesotherapy procedure was more painful than the years of hiding my body. I would do it again in a second!"
"VIP MediSpa has been wonderful. The Staff are pleasant and very helpful. All my questions were answered to my satisfaction. I’m very happy with the results from all my procedures and can’t wait to do more. Max is great and makes me feel comfortable about my decisions I have made. I recommend VIP to my friends and family."
"I joined the VIP MediSpa during the Grand opening and everyone was so nice! The location and décor are perfect! The service 6 months later is still first rate! I would definitely send my friends and family to them! Thank you so much!"

"I am very thankful it was Dr. Max, Sonja and VIP MediSpa who I’ve done this with. Everyone is responsive and helpful, and I know they really care about me. I highly recommend VIP MediSpa."
"I have a very low tolerance for pain – Dr. Max made sure I didn’t feel any discomfort during the procedure."
"I can now wear clothes I haven’t worn in a few years. I put on a pair of work slacks I hadn’t worn since before, and they fell down after I buttoned them! I also am loving that it gave me more incentive to take care of myself better, eat healthier, and exercise more. I am 43 going on 27."
