Upper arm liposuction in NYC may be a solution to the problem. At Scarpidis Aesthetics, our skilled plastic surgeons can perform state-of-the-art liposuction procedures to reduce accumulated fat and restore a more aesthetically pleasing shape to the upper arms.
Overview of Upper Arm Liposuction
Our patients have New York upper arm liposuction to achieve a more proportionate appearance of the arms. We perform arm liposuction with precision and skill as a body-sculpting procedure – not just for fat removal. Our surgeons remove precise amounts of fat in specific targeted areas to create an overall more youthful, trim, beautiful appearance.
In addressing the upper arms, Dr. Scarpidis also examines the area just behind the armpits. When excess fat has accumulated in the upper arms, in can usually be found creating “bra roll” bulges as well. We custom-tailor each arm liposuction procedure to suit the individual patient’s needs.

Benefits of arm liposuction include:
- Used to remove both upper and lower arm fat

Arm Liposuction Procedure
With advances in technology, various liposuction techniques are available today. Depending on your unique anatomy and cosmetic goals, Dr. Scarpidis can recommend the best arm liposuction procedure for you. Possible treatment options include:
This remains a popular procedure despite significant advances in technology. In traditional liposuction, the surgeon uses a cannula (thin tube) inserted through a small incision to inject fluids into the treatment area and manually break up fat. The fat cells are removed from the body using suction.
This revolutionary laser liposuction technology is used to melt unresponsive fat in hard-to-treat areas while enhancing body contours.
In this safe, effective, comfortable procedure, the treatment area is infused with saline solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine, causing the fat to swell and become firm and making fat removal and contouring easier. This technique results in less bleeding and bruising and a faster, easier recovery.
Superwet liposuction is a variation of tumescent liposuction that uses less fluid to infuse the treatment area and is performed under general anesthesia.
Ultrasound energy used in this popular liposuction technique targets and liquifies fat cells, making them easier to remove. Ultrasonic liposuction makes it possible to remove large, dense fat deposits while tightening the skin.
In this procedure, the surgeon uses a cannula with a vibrating tip to break up fat cells for easier removal. It allows for smaller incisions and quicker recovery than traditional liposuction.

Recovery after Arm Liposuction
Depending on the type of anesthesia used in your procedure, you may be able to return home in 1 to 3 hours after upper arm liposuction in New York. Have someone available to drive you home and assist you during the first 24 hours after surgery.
You can expect some swelling and bruising, and possibly dimpling and unevenness, which will resolve over time after the procedure. Most patients can resume normal activities and exercise within 3 to 6 weeks after liposuction.
When tumescent or superwet liposuction is performed, the treatment area is infused with fluids to make treatment safer, more effective, and more comfortable for the patient. In these cases, the small incisions made during the procedure are left open to allow the fluids to drain from the body.
Compressions sleeves must be worn continuously for the first 48 hours after the procedure. After that, you may take your first shower. You will need to wear compression sleeves for 3 to 6 weeks after treatment to help ensure that the skin reattaches fully to arm after liposuction.
