Denise Lopez, 13 July 2020

My experience with Dr. Bruno and his team has been nothing but good! Prior to choosing Dr.Bruno for my breast augmentation, I had a consultation with another doctor. She stated that my type of BA would require a complex procedure that would increase the price of my BA significantly. After doing my research and posting on RealSelf, I felt that I needed a second opinion because what she said I had was not confirmed by other doctors. It left me feeling she was being dishonest about what I needed just to hike up the cost of the surgery. Dr. Bruno had been referred to me by a friend that also had a BA so I decided to book a consultation with him and I am sooooo glad I did. I've had such a pleasant experience with his team since the first time I reached out to them. Joselle has always been really sweet and accommodating. I explained to her that I would like to see Dr. Bruno as soon as possible because I had only a few days to decide whether I would go with the other surgeon (the other surgeon's quote was only good for a few days because of a promotion they had). She gave me an appointment slot that worked for me, later she ended up calling me the next day to let me know that there was an appointment that was a couple days earlier than my original appointment. I really appreciated it that as I had very limited time to make up my mind. The day of my consultation came and after meeting with Dr. Bruno, it was clear to me that I would be going with him for my BA. He explained the procedure in great detail and answered of all my questions honestly. It was completely different experience than my consultation with the other surgeon who was pushy and seemed annoyed that I had tons of questions. He and his team made me feel very comfortable and I never felt pressured by them, as I did with the other surgeon I consulted. Both Marisol and Joselle were just as helpful with answering all my questions as Dr. Bruno. Throughout the entire BA journey, his staff would call me to remind me of appointments as well as check up on me once I had the procedure. They genuinely care about their patients. As far as the results go, I am only three weeks out from surgery but I already love what I am seeing and can't wait for my final result as I really admire Dr. Bruno's work from the before and after pictures I have seen of other patients. I highly recommend Dr. Bruno and his team! If I ever decide to have other procedures, I will definitely be returning to him.THANK YOU!

I was referred to Dr. Jejurikar by Dr. Gardner and I’m SO HAPPY that I finally went to see him. He’s the best (FIRST) experience I had with plastic surgery and I’d recommend him to anyone who’s contemplating having a procedure done. He and his entire office staff are friendly, patient and so very helpful.

I only went to Dr. Zarrabi for my consultation and haven't yet had my surgery but I had one of the best experiences I've ever had with a doctor. He was patient, kind, thorough. He answered every question I had and never rushed me once. He went through insurance possibilities with me and explained all of my options at length. I hope I can schedule my surgery with him soon.

Vanessa Marie, 23 September 2020

I don't know where to start or how to say thank you to Dr. Schwartz and his amazing staff for all their support and care on my past visit. For as long as I can remember, I've had one big insecurity that I decided I would just learn to deal with because of my fear to go under the knife. I'd figured I would just avoid photos or just wear a filter in them...however, I met with Dr. Schwartz and he assured me he could fix my issue without surgery. I had a thorough consultation with him and next thing you know I was signed up for my appointment to have injectables for the first time in my 33 years. I always said when I felt ready to have my "pick me up" I was going to knock on a doctors door whose work and credentials were in line. Dr. Schwartz not only took care of all my issues but he delivered me my dream nose...I honestly can not stop looking at myself in the mirror. It's honestly so perfectly done and I just can't put into words what a confidence boost this has done for me...especially in my line of work. I thank you Dr. Schwartz...for your skill and sweet nature during my time spent with you. To your amazing staff...thank you for all your kind words...it really meant a lot to me! I found a place where I will be going to have all my beauty needs met from here on out:) I want to encourage anyone curious about anything that has been burdensome to you...to have a consult with Dr. Schwartz...I'm so glad I did.

Kristen Larkin, 20 September 2020

I traveled from Colorado to see Dr. Hubbard for a breast augmentation and all I can say is WOW!!!! Not only is he an exceptionally skilled surgeon, he has the best bedside manner of any doctor around. He and his staff (Ms. Rheanna and the rest of the ladies :)) immediately made me feel at ease, from the initial consult to the aftercare process which I am still in. I woke up the next day with minimal pain and have absolutely zero discomfort as we speak...and it's only four days later!! Dr. Hubbard and his staff are the consummate professionals and will immediately make you feel like family...how many other doctors and their staff can you say that about? I know for 100% certainty I will only be seeing Dr. Hubbard for all medical procedures, regardless of where I live!!

dana brandt, 09 September 2020

Dr Mustoe has an unbelievable bedside manner. My son had an extreme deviated septum and unable to breathe out of his left nostril and additionally the nose was not straight. Our end goal was for him to breathe! Dr. Mustoe said he would get it as straight as he could and may not be perfect. After one month my son is able to breathe and his nose, while not perfectly straight, still looks like him and doesn't look like a 'done' nose. I would highly recommend Dr. Mustoe and his team.

Mayra Tang, 08 March 2020

Dr Mussat is a wonderful surgeon. I consulted with her in her downtown office. Upon entering her office her receptionist was welcoming and courteous. During my consultation Dr Mussat sat with me and gave me a presentation with information about my procedure. I felt that she was very thorough with her explanation. I was able to see actual footage of how she performs the procedure. This was impressive and she really took her time with me. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that I fit the criteria for having this procedure as a medical necessity which turned out to be a covered benefit under my BCBS plan. I have since had my surgery and I’m so happy with the outcome. The only regret I have is that I didn’t have this sooner. I’m so grateful to Dr Mussat and this has been truly a blessing for me.

Arm liposuction is a targeted fat removal procedure performed to eliminate excessive fat concentrated in the arm area that is hard to eliminate by exercise or diet. This procedure can give your arms a slimmer appearance. As a result, the rest of your body will look and feel more contoured and sculpted. Although arm liposuction can be done on both men and women, it is more commonly done on women.

Aging, weight gain, weight loss, or genetics can cause fat to build up in the upper arm area. Oftentimes, the fat is combined with loose skin, creating a flappy and "batwing" appearance. This can make your arm appear out of balance with the rest of your body. Regardless of how much working out and dieting you do, concentrated fat in the arms can be difficult to get rid of. This is where liposuction steps in and offers a solution to remove these unwanted fat cells. It is one of the best ways to achieve the desired slim look while maintaining proper body proportions without damaging the muscles.

The goal of arm liposuction is not to remove the maximum possible amount of fat since arms that are excessively thin with an otherwise overweight or obese body might appear unnatural and awkward instead of attractive. The main goals of arm liposuction are as follows:

  • To improve a disproportionate appearance of the arm. Since most women do not want arms that appear masculine or muscular, the procedure can maintain female beauty's aesthetic quality. The result of the procedure will make you feel more attractive in any situation.
  • To restore confidence. The "batwing" appearance makes some people feel self-conscious about their appearance. They may even avoid certain types of clothing, such as a sleeveless top or dress. After arm liposuction, you should feel more comfortable wearing these types of clothes and feel less self-conscious about your appearance.
  • To achieve a thinner appearance of the arms, especially when the arms are in a relaxed and dependent position alongside your torso.

Arm liposuction can be performed on various areas in the arms, including:

  • Triceps region – this is the most common treatment area of arm liposuction. As you get older, the combination of excess weight in the arms, gravity, and loss of skin elasticity can result in the dreaded sagging of your triceps region, particularly when you stretch out your arms. The main aim of arm liposuction in this region is to reduce the weight of the arm, which in turn will significantly reduce the flabby appearance of the area, giving it a reshaped and more toned look.
  • Anterior axillary fat pad – also known as the breast tail, an anterior axillary fat pad can be found in front of your underarms, just in front of the armpit. With age and weight loss, these fat pads can become more prominent. Even in numerous relatively thin women, it can be disproportionately large. These fat pads can bulge unflatteringly above a fitting bra.
  • Posterior axillary fat pad – also known as the bra line, posterior axillary fat pad is situated behind your underarms just behind the armpit on the side of the back. Some women found these fat pads as a cosmetic problem.

The axillary regions (anterior axillary fat pad and posterior axillary fat pad) need to be addressed in conjunction with the triceps region to avoid an awkward appearance, particularly when you wear snug garments like a bra. Since there are neurovascular structures in the axillary regions that may be damaged by arm liposuction, your surgeon will be extra cautious when performing the procedure in this area.

The Procedure

Prior to the arm liposuction procedure, you will have an initial consultation with your surgeon. During this consultation, your surgeon will answer all of your questions, ask about your expectations and concerns, and explain the procedures' benefits and risks. They will also determine whether you are an ideal candidate for arm liposuction or not. You are suitable for this procedure if you:

  • Have unwanted pockets of fat located in the arm area and feel self-conscious about it.
  • Are generally in good health to ensure the procedure is safe for you. You also should not have any problems in your skin like infections.
  • Have realistic procedures about the results of the procedure. It will help the muscle definition of the triceps and shoulders to stand out more, but it will not add to muscle tone. You also need to be aware that it is not a way to weight loss.
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding.

During the initial consultation, your surgeon will also give you pre-surgical instruction, which may include:

  • Stop using blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin.
  • You should stop smoking and consuming alcohol at least ten days before the arm liposuction.
  • Inform your surgeon about any medications you are currently taking. Your surgeon will determine which medication you need to stop before the procedure.

During the arm liposuction procedure, your surgeon will start by marking the area of the arm to be treated. They may also take pictures to compare the before and after results. Then, you will be given a local anesthetic, which only numbs the area of the treatment while you stay awake. Sedation may also be given to help you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure. In certain cases, a general anesthetic may be used so that you will be asleep and unaware of anything during the procedure.

Then, your surgeon will begin the fat removal. There are numerous techniques to perform arm liposuction, but the most common technique is the tumescent technique, which involves the injection of a sterile solution (tumescent fluid) in the treatment area. This fluid numbs and softens the fat for easier removal.

With the tumescent technique, the fat of the arm is taken from two incisions, near the elbow joint and toward the back of the underarm. This approach is used to meticulously eliminate all unwanted fat while making sure to maintain control over the arms’ contours. Then, a cannula is inserted through the incisions. This cannula breaks up and suctions excess fat in your arms while the skin, blood vessels, muscles, and nerves are left completely intact.

In most arm liposuction, fat is removed from only 75% of the arm's circumference. This follows the normal fat distribution pattern in most women's arms. In heavier patients, however, the entire circumference of the arm may be targeted.

Once your surgeon finishes removing the fat, they will close the incisions with stitches and cover them with bandages.

How Long Should You Stay in United States?

In most cases, you do not have to stay in the hospital or clinic overnight. You will be allowed to leave on the same day as your arm liposuction. However, if general anesthesia is used, it is possible that you will be required to stay in the hospital for a night.

Although you will be discharged on the same day or the next day of the surgery, you should aim to stay in United States for at least seven days to attend follow-up checkups and to let your body recover before traveling a long distance.

How Long is the Recovery Time?

Expect to experience swelling, soreness, and bruising for a few weeks following your arm liposuction. It is important to be patient and give your body time to heal. You may also experience some pain for the first 2 to 3 days following the surgery.

Unlike liposuction on other areas of the body, such as the abdomen and thighs, arm liposuction requires less recovery period. In general, the recovery time of arm liposuction is around 14 days. You will be allowed to return to your normal activity by then. However, strenuous activities and heavy lifting must be avoided for four to six weeks. If you have small children, keep in mind that you should not lift them during your recovery period, so make sure to have some help.

What Aftercare Should You Consider?

Your surgeon and medical team will give you detailed aftercare instructions following your arm liposuction. Make sure to follow everything to avoid complications and achieve the best results. The instructions may include:

  • Keep your hands elevated for the first 24 hours.
  • Keep the areas around the incision clean to prevent infection.
  • You may not be allowed to shower during the first three days of your surgery.
  • Protect your arm from sunlight to speed up your healing process.
  • Do not move your arm more than necessary.
  • Take medications as prescribed and directed by your surgeon.

The outcome of arm liposuction can be permanent as the fat cells are completely removed during the procedure. However, putting extra weight back on will create new fat cells, which will eventually cause fat to accumulate in your arms. To maintain the results of your arm liposuction, it is essential that you follow a healthy lifestyle. This includes consuming lots of lean protein, vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. You also need to exercise regularly.

What is the Success Rate for Arm Liposuction?

Arm liposuction has excellent clinical results, and most people who had the procedure are satisfied with the results. The procedure is also known to be very safe. However, you need to be aware that arm liposuction carries risks and complications, such as infection, fat embolism, allergic reaction, adverse reaction to anesthesia, seroma, scarring, contour irregularities, and loose skin.

Since arm liposuction requires a refined and greatly delicate approach to ensure patients achieve their goals, the skills and experience of the surgeon are crucial. Therefore, make sure you choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience to get the best desired results and reduce the possibility of complications.

Are there Alternatives to Arm Liposuction?

One of the most popular alternatives to arm liposuction is CoolSculpting, which is a non-invasive procedure that involves no anesthesia, incisions, and needles. It is the perfect alternative if you are not a suitable candidate for arm liposuction or if you do not want to undergo surgery.

If there are any sagging skin and skin laxity issues in the arm area, arm lift or upper arm Brachioplasty might be a better option. This procedure can tighten loose skin from the area. In certain cases, an arm lift may be performed at the same time as arm liposuction.

What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure?

Before arm liposuction, you may have a flabby appearance in your arms that makes you feel self-conscious and unconfident. After the procedure, you will achieve a proportionate appearance in your arms; sleeveless tops and dresses will look nicer, making you feel more confident and improving your self-esteem. Your arms will appear slimmer, giving the rest of your body a more contoured and toned look.
