In individuals with overly full upper arms but good skin tone, arm liposuction can result in shapelier, more muscular appearing upper arms without lengthy incisions.
Even a subtle change can produce a striking overall effect.
Dr. Belsley often utilizes ultrasound assisted liposuction in this area in order to promote skin shrinkage, making more individuals candidates for this minimally invasive method of arm contouring.
This case depicts a fit 24 year old woman who exercised and ate healthfully, but wished for her upper arms to appear more defined.
Ultrasonic liposuction was utilized to remove the relatively small amount of fatty tissue that was obscuring her musculature.
Even in fit and muscular individuals, fat can obscure muscle tone. The incisions necessary for this type of procedure are only several millimeters long and the results can be remarkable.
The post-operative photographs depict this woman's appearance approximately six weeks after surgery.
