How liposuction of the arms is conducted:

Since flabby upper-arm folds tend to be composed of tissue and skin rather than fat, laser liposuction, which has the ability to both dissolve fat and tighten skin, is generally the method of choice.  Under local anesthesia, a tiny microcannula is inserted into the skin, with the underlying fat melted, dissolved, and then suctioned.  The skin around the incision can be tightened before sutures are applied.  The procedure generally takes 1 to 2 hours.  With minimal trauma to the skin, scarring and swelling are minimal, too.

Problems typically corrected with liposuction of the arms:

The vast majority of candidates choose lipo of the arms to alleviate flabby upper-arms.  Since these areas of the arms aren’t where the muscles lie, toning exercises and dieting have no real effect on these so-called “arm flaps,” so for many, liposuction is the best and easiest remedy.

Relative popularity of liposuction of the arms:

Although this procedure has steadily gained popularity since the 1980s in the US, it is most frequently incorporated at part of a total body contouring process following massive weight loss rather than an independent procedure.
