More women these days are seeking liposuction of the arms. Having seen the beautiful contours of women like Michelle Obama, it isn’t surprising that toned arms are desirable. For many women, though, it’s difficult to achieve this goal. The upper arms are often prone to fat accumulation. Even slim women often find they have excess fat in this area. Trying to eradicate this excess fat can prove extremely difficult. The fat on the arms is very resistant to diet and exercise. Even if you work out a lot and eat very healthily, you could still have large arms. With this in mind, liposuction seems like the obvious solution. By sucking out the fat, surely it’s possible to achieve beautiful arm muscle definition?
Why Does Working Out Not Make My Arms Look Defined?
Many people believe that if they work out, they will begin to look toned. But there is a problem with this theory. While exercising does tone and define the muscles, the definition will not be visible if fat covers them. Toning up the muscles will not eliminate the fat. Therefore, you may have extremely toned arm muscles, but the fat covering them hides them from view.
Sometimes cardio exercises help to shed fat all over the body. If you are overweight, doing lots of cardio workouts may help you to slim down overall. That could help to improve the appearance of your arms. But it may not help at all, depending on your genes. If your genetics leave you prone to fat accumulation on your arms, they’ll still look bigger if you lose weight. Unfortunately, spot-reducing fat is impossible. That is the reason why some women are slim overall but still have bulky arms. Of course, if you’re already slim, losing weight overall won’t improve the appearance of the arms. The fat needs removing in order to show the muscle definition. Hence lipo is the answer.

What Does Arm Liposuction Involve?
Arm liposuction is a surgical procedure that permanently removes excess fat from the arms. When carried out by a skilled surgeon, it can remove as much as 90% of fat from the arms. Patients undergo arm lipo under local anesthetic. The surgeon makes small cuts in the arms and then sucks the fat out through them. They then sculpt the remaining fat to create definition.
Can Any Surgeon Perform Arm Lipo?
Many cosmetic surgeons today offer arm lipo to their patients. But not all can offer the same kind of fat removal. Standard arm lipo only removes the fat from the underhang. The fat on the top and sides of the arm remains untouched. That means they only remove only a small amount of fat. Patients often experience limited benefits.
Dr. Su at ArtLipo performs Celebrity Arms Liposuction, a pioneering treatment that ensures maximum results. Celebrity Arms lipo is far more comprehensive than regular arm lipo. Dr. Su treats the entire circumference of the upper arm. He not only treats the underhang but the shoulder, top, and sides of the arm too. As a result, he achieves maximum fat removal for his patients. As he sculpts the fat close to the muscle, his results display maximum muscle definition.
Will Lipo Give Me Muscle Definition If I Don’t Work Out?
Arm lipo removes excess fat from the upper arms, and the Celebrity Arms procedure reveals muscle tone effectively. If you lack muscle tone, though, lipo won’t reveal much definition. Your arms will be slim but lack the curve of muscle. For this reason, it’s important to work out before you undergo lipo so your arms can have good tone.
Will I Need To Work Out After Surgery?
There is a common misconception that liposuction is the end of the story when trying to achieve slim arms. That isn’t the case at all. In fact, liposuction is really a new beginning. To maintain the outcome of your surgery, you must live a healthy lifestyle in the long term. Eating healthily and exercising regularly are vital for maintaining the slim arms that surgery achieves.
Immediately after your arm surgery, you should avoid strenuous arm exercises. But once your surgeon gives you the go-ahead, you should return to the gym to work out. Maintaining strong and defined arm muscles by working out is the best way to keep your arms looking good.
