Is Arm Liposuction Safe?

Are you considering having arm liposuction? Do you have concerns about whether the procedure is safe? It’s only natural to have worries about any kind of surgery. However, you can rest assured that arm lipo, when carried out by an expert surgeon, is very safe. To find out more, read on. We have information for you about this beneficial procedure that could restore your confidence.

What Does Arm Lipo Involve?

Liposuction of the arms involves the removal of fat cells. It’s an ideal treatment for anyone who wants to spot reduce fat that hasn’t responded to diet or exercise regimes. During the procedure, a surgeon makes small incisions in the arm area. He or she, then, inserts a narrow cannula and sucks out the excess fat. The result is a much more toned and slim-looking arm. 

Will I Have A General Anesthetic?

One of the questions that people ask about the safety of arm lipo is whether they’ll have a general anesthetic. General anesthetics can carry several risks. In most cases, surgeons carry out liposuction under a local anesthetic. This means you’ll be awake and alert during the whole procedure. This ensures a better result since the surgeon can take his or her time removing the fat cells. It also guarantees a faster recovery. You’ll be able to go home on the same day and you’ll soon be able to return to normal activities. The risks are significantly lower when having lipo under a local anesthetic, so you can be confident of your safety.

What About the Recovery Risks?

After your procedure, you may experience some bleeding, swelling, and bruising. This is normal and will subside in time. Although you can expect some pain immediately after your procedure, painkillers will control. It shouldn’t be too uncomfortable, and you’ll soon be back to normal. 

Minimizing the Risks

No surgical procedure is 100 percent safe. However, when a skilled and experienced surgeon performs the procedure, there is less risk. You can also minimize the possible risks by choosing the right surgeon. Selecting one with plenty of proven experience and expertise in the field is key.
