How Arm Liposuction Can Give You Slimmer and More Toned Arms

Fat Reduction Procedure, Popular, Procedures

Having slimmer and more toned arms is a something many women in our clinic tell us they want. Although the best way to achieve this is through exercise and a healthy lifestyle, in some cases other surgical or non-surgical options can be considered.

At Chelsea Cosmetics, we have practiced the arm liposuction method to not only sculpt the lower fold of the arm but also the entire arm in a 360-degree method to achieve a more attractive cosmetic result. Using this method results in much smoother and slimmer arms. Arm sculpting also includes areas which can be overlooked during normal liposuction procedures, such as above the elbows, as well as the anterior and posterior bra folds.

On most men the fat layer under the skin is very thin, allowing the muscles to be easily seen. However, on women, the natural fat layer is thick enough for gravity to pull the skin downwards, creating arm folds and hiding muscle contours, even in muscular women.

Using the Slim Lipo sculpting method we gently met the fat, leaving a few millimetres to keep the skin smooth, and accurately contour your muscles.

Arm liposuction can be performed either under local or general anesthesia. When done under local anesthetic we use tumescent anesthesia, which is a numbing mixture of local anesthetic, saline and other drugs that help to shrink the blood vessels and minimises bruising and bleeding during the procedure.

The benefits of tumescent anesthesia over general anesthesia include the reduction of risks experienced under general anesthesia such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolisms, blood pressure fluctuations and cardiac incidents, as well as less bruising and trauma, and a more efficient healing process because of the use of smaller instruments.

Who is the best candidate for arms Slim liposculpture?

Patients with mild to moderate sagging skin are ideal for the procedure, as Slim laser-assisted technology provides a good degree of skin tightness. However, patients with severe sagging skin are not suitable for this procedure.

When should the patient see results?

The patient can expect to see results 4 weeks after the procedure. Maximum results and skin retraction are achieved 6-9 months after the procedure.

How much does arm liposculpture cost?

A cosmetic surgery procedure is best considered knowing quality of the liposuction procedure is more important than the cost. Chelsea Cosmetics advises that when choosing a liposuction surgeon, their expertise and experience, as well as their focus on achieving a satisfying result for the patient, is more important than choosing the cheapest option. Having said that our pricing is fair and comparitive with similar practitioners in Melbourne too.


Disclaimer: Losing weight through natural methods and regular exercise offers more health benefits compared to liposuction. We strongly encourage patients to pursue their goals using natural and healthy approaches before contemplating liposuction. It’s important to note that liposuction is not a method for weight loss; while it may result in a reduction in dress or pants sizes, the scale may not reflect a significant difference.

Also, before deciding on cosmetic procedures, it’s important to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Talk to your cosmetic doctor about what to expect from any treatments and make sure you understand your recovery time and the likely results.
