For many people, one of the biggest areas of self-consciousness is their arms. When fat around the arms becomes stubborn and difficult to get rid of, it can cause individuals to constantly hide their arms in sleeves and not feel comfortable in bathing suits. At the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin can address this issue with arm liposuction in Richmond.
Arm liposuction helps patients achieve a more proportionate appearance in the arms, gives them more confidence to wear sleeveless clothing, and helps them to be more comfortable overall in their own skin.
Why Get Arm Liposuction?
Unfortunately, the arms are very prone to the damaging effects of gravity—even more so than most parts of our body. It’s also a very common area for the body to store fat, and with age, our arms tend to sag quite a bit and get looser.
If you’re in your 20s or 30s and you already notice thickness in your arms that bothers you, it’s important to understand that it typically only becomes worse in your 40s and 50s. Because of this, many patients choose to correct it when they’re younger with arm liposuction.
Arm Liposuction Candidates
If you’re interested in arm liposuction in Northern Virginia, you may be an ideal candidate. The best candidates for arm liposuction are individuals who are at a healthy weight, but just can’t seem to get rid of their arm fat—even with exercise.
Good candidates for arm liposuction are those who:
- Are near their goal weight, but have excess fat in the upper arm area
- Have good skin elasticity
- Have good physical, mental, and emotional health
- Do not have any active diseases
- Have realistic expectations about what arm liposuction can achieve
If you’ve had surgery on your armpit lymph nodes or the upper chest area, you may not be a good candidate for arm liposuction in Northern Virginia. Dr. Sundin will determine this during your consultation.
For patients who have extensive upper arm issues, Dr. Sundin may recommend combining liposuction and an arm lift in order to optimally contour the arms. These procedures are done at the same time.
