Arm Liposuction For Sleek and Sculpted Arms

Frustrated with stubborn fat deposits that create a bulging appearance behind your arms? And, despite your best efforts to eat well, tone and exercise, that excess fat just won’t budge?If so, you may have considered arm liposuction. 

Arm liposuction is unique in that it also treats the surrounding area—not just the bulging skin that is bothering you so much—to create lasting results and a well-balanced aesthetic.

But what is it, and how can it help you achieve the sleek and sculpted arms you desire?


In short, arm liposuction is a minimally invasive surgery which removes excess fat cells (lipids) from the upper arm and surrounding areas through the use of suction techniques—hence the name, lipo-suction!

Although other (non-invasive) treatments have been developed over the years, liposuction is still considered the most effective treatment for removing large amounts of excess fat from the body and producing a balanced result.

Understanding the Bulging Arm

Bulging underarms can be caused by many things, including rapid weight loss, aging, or simple genetics. The main contributing factor is that, over time, the body produces less and less collagen and elastin—proteins that contribute to skin tautness.

Although it seems counter-intuitive, and without getting too technical, the bulging phenomenon behind the arms is not solely caused by excess arm fat. 

Accumulation also occurs in the armpit, scapula (shoulder blade), sub axillary (arm behind the armpit), and in the muscles around the arm, including the deltoid (shoulder) muscles and trapezius (upper shoulder) muscles.

These areas around the upper arm contribute significantly to the issue of the bulging arm by acting as fat deposits. 

During arm liposuction, a skilled plastic surgeon targets these specific areas, as well as the arm itself, to ensure comprehensive fat removal and a more rounded outcome. 

Arm Liposuction at Lydian

As you can see, the result of arm liposuction at Lydian is an overall more slender forearm, upper arm, shoulder, and armpit area; these are all the key areas targeted during the preparation stages (before).

With arm liposuction at Lydian, Dr. An (as seen on YouTube’s ‘Dr. An’s Obesity College’) will use his extensive expertise to evaluate exactly how much fat should be removed for each unique case by carefully analyzing the patient’s body shape, age, body composition, skin condition, and fat distribution before the surgery to find the optimal treatment method.

Dr. An begins the surgery by making small incisions, strategically placed in inconspicuous locations, around the armpit area. 

Through these incisions, a set of special cannula specifically invented by Dr. An himself are inserted to gently remove excess fat, sculpting the arms to achieve a more defined and toned appearance.

Achieving optimal results and minimizing side-effects, such as bumpy skin or scarring, requires the expertise and accumulated fingertip sensitivity that comes from the years of experience Dr. An has accumulated. 

Advantages of Arm Liposuction

  2. Improved Proportions: By addressing both the arm and surrounding areas, arm liposuction creates a balanced and harmonious appearance, enhancing the overall aesthetic of your upper body.
  3. Quick Recovery: Arm liposuction typically involves minimal downtime, enabling you to resume your daily activities sooner.
  4. Results and longevity: Following arm liposuction, you can immediately expect to see a significant reduction in the bulging appearance of your arms. The fat cells removed during liposuction do not return. However, a healthy lifestyle should still be maintained.
