Laser Liposuction Arms Miami

Arm Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure to remove excess fat from your upper arms. The procedure requires the surgeon to insert a tube beneath your skin around your arms to remove excess fat. The surgeon connects the tube to a vacuum to eliminate the excess fat through suction. 

Unlike traditional arm liposuction, laser liposuction for arms in Miami involves the laser energy/device user to liquefy the fat. Once the surgeon melts the fatty tissues in your arm, it becomes easier for the health professional to vacuum out the fat content via liposuction. 

Laser liposuction is a reliable and safe procedure that stimulates collagen and elastin production, resulting in tighter, firmer, and smoother skin around your arms. Compared to traditional liposuction surgery, laser liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that causes less bruising because the laser energy coagulates blood vessels in your upper arm. 

How Do laser liposuction arms work?

laser liposuction Before and after

Laser liposuction is an evidence-based approach that melts fatty tissues in your upper arm and tightens the surrounding skin. The arm laser liposuction is a simple procedure and takes no more than 60 minutes.

The surgeon performs the procedure under local anesthesia. Besides, laser liposuction is a new, advanced, cutting-edge fat melting and removal procedure. Depending on your requirements, the surgeon will choose a specific laser technique to heat the fatty tissues in your body before the suction.

Who is a good candidate?

A good candidate for laser liposuction has excess and hard-to-remove fatty tissues in the upper arm and has optimal skin elasticity and tone. You must also have optimal physical and mental health with no pre-existing medical conditions. 

Benefits

The most significant advantage of laser arm liposuction is minimally invasive, and the surgeon performs it under local anesthesia. A board-certified surgeon in Miami will make a small incision to remove the fat and close it back up with a few stitches during the operation.

Laser liposuction results in reliable, efficient, and faster recovery with less downtime. You can resume your daily activities within a few days. Another benefit of laser liposuction is slimmer, firmer, tighter, and aesthetically pleasant arms. Laser liposuction allows for immediate results, unlike traditional procedures that may cause swelling to last for five months.

Recovery

 You will need 5-7 days to recover from laser arm liposuction. The good news is that it is 50% less recovery time than traditional liposuction. In addition, you will experience less bruising due to smaller incisions, less blood loss, and quick healing. 

Arm liposuction Scarring, in general, is a primary concern for people who undergo the traditional procedure. Although it removes stubborn and unwanted fatty tissues, it involves incisions, meaning the procedure can lead to scarring.

The same goes for laser arm liposuction, meaning you will notice scars on your arms. However, this is normal because the scar that appears red will become purple and eventually paler. Over time, the scar will blend into your skin.

Arm Laser liposuction Miami Cost

The cost of laser arm liposuction varies from patient to patient. Various factors affect the price of arm laser liposuction in Miami, such as the amount of fat that requires removal, aesthetic goals, anesthesia, preoperative supplies, and the surgeon’s experience and skills. The average cost of arm laser liposuction in Miami is between $2,500 and $4,500.

How do I prepare for Arm Laser liposuction?

Preparation for arm laser liposuction is essential for the optimal procedure and smooth recovery. The purpose is to ensure long-lasting results. Your health provider will advise you to quit smoking at least two weeks before the surgery. 

Remember, it is crucial to quit smoking because the presence of nicotine in your blood vessels constricts them and reduces blood flow to your arms, preventing the wound from healing quickly. 

In addition, wash your arms using anti-bacterial soap before the surgery to reduce the risk of infections. You must not use anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, vitamin E, and other medications because they can hinder healing. 

We recommend investing in a compression sleeve before the surgery and wearing it immediately after the procedure to reduce swelling and inflammation. You can take supplements like vitamin A and vitamin C to strengthen your immune system and encourage your body to speed up the healing process. 

These vitamins also play a crucial role in new collagen and elastin production. Moreover, avoid alcohol for at least two weeks before the procedure because alcohol interferes with anesthesia metabolism. We recommend avoiding sunbathing for two weeks before the operation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Arm Laser Lipo safe?

The answer is “Yes.” Laser arm liposuction is a reliable, safe, and result-oriented cosmetic procedure. However, it can lead to complications if you choose an amateur surgeon. Do your research and find a board-certified, professional, experienced, and skilled surgeon with a good track record to reduce the risk of problems and make the procedure safer.

Can Arm Laser Lipo treat cellulite?

Arm laser liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny laser fibers beneath your skin. The energy emitted from the laser breaks up the stubborn and inflexible bands beneath your arm’s skin, causing you to notice cellulite. 

However, this treatment tightens and thickens your skin by naturally producing collagen and elasticity. As a result, your skin has a reduced risk of cellulite appearance. Thus, laser liposuction is an excellent procedure to treat cellulite.
