Because upper arm flab is made up of not only excess skin but also fatty tissue, liposuction is a typical part of the arm lift procedure. Liposuction will suction away those stubborn fat cells, giving you lean, toned arms you can be proud to show off.
In cases where there is a lot of excess fatty tissue without excess skin, liposuction alone will be enough to solve the problem. For this, the arm lift procedure will consist of smaller incisions made in the area, followed by the insertion of a cannula (a plastic tube with a sharp end). This will be used to remove the fat cells.
