Surgical Cases Related to Arm Liposuction

Lipoplasty of the arms provides subtle shaping

Lipoplasty of the arms in the sense of liposculpture may be used diffusely when there is excess fat which possibly may have persisted in irregular areas after bariatric surgery.

With loss of muscle bulk and with advancing age the skin of the upper arms becomes loose, and if the arms are raised they are seen to have developed the colloquially described “batwing” appearance with folds dependent from the triceps area. When there is substantial loosening of the skin, liposuction alone will be insufficient, and excess skin will have to be excised, known as brachioplasty.
