There’s nothing like the first hot day in spring to remind us how often our arms are on display. If you feel uncomfortable about the shape of your arms, or find yourself constantly covering up with long sleeves to hide the excess fat on your arms that won’t shift through diet and exercise, arm liposuction may provide an excellent solution.
Upper arm liposuction can quickly and permanently remedy this problem, often with very satisfying results.
Dr Feldman regularly performs liposuction on arms in a day clinic in South Yarra (near Toorak, Prahran, Windsor and Richmond) under local anaesthesia. Using only local anaesthesia instead of a general anaesthetic greatly helps recovery time and is far less stressful on your body.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Dr Feldman chooses tumescent liposuction for all her procedures. This involves injecting into the fat layer a large quantity of fluid containing anaesthetic, a salt solution and medications to minimalise bleeding. Then, using a cannula, she gently sucks the extraneous fatty tissue away.
A few hours after the procedure you’ll be able to return home with some light painkillers (such as paracetamol) and oral antibiotics.
Arms, compared to thighs or tummy, tend to heal quickly after liposuction, so relatively minimal downtime is required.
