Liposculpture under Local Anaesthetic produces excellent results because when the shaping is done under Local Anaesthetic, Not only is there no pain but because you are alert enough to be able to move your arms in different positions it makes it easier for the specialist to get to all parts of the arms to remove all the unwanted fat that has grown around the arms. Mostly it is the Upper Arm that requires the most attention but Liposculpture under Local Anaesthetic allows shaping of the Lower Arm as well. The fat pads in front of the front of the armpits above the upper outer parts of your breasts can also be reduced at the same time and also the fat pads behind just below the shoulders and above the bra straps can also be reduced in the same procedure. So you can see that shaping of the Arms requires a highly skilled Cosmetic Surgeon / Physician to achieve an ideal result.
Always check to see if the Cosmetic Surgeon / Physician looking after you has the expertise and experience to do it under Tumescent Local Anaesthetic.
Never be afraid to ask.

This is one of the biggest arms I have ever treated with Liposculpture under Local Anaesthetic in the past 25 yr. To get a good a result & avoid loose skin following the procedure you should be thinking of doing it when the skin is still firm & tight. Size is not important. Age ? Naturally skin quality is better when you are younger. Under 50 yrs old . However, skin quality varies from one person to another. This case is a grandmother of over 60 yrs of age. I am very happy with the result I have achieved for her & so is she. With any one in her age group it is important for the specialist to warn the patient of the high possibility of loose skin quality after the procedure. Under promise & Over Deliver. That’s my motto.
