Both men and women in the United States worry about excess fat. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that lipo is becoming such a popular cosmetic procedure. Liposuction is consistently ranking as a top-performed procedure every year. When it comes to the arms, women are often more displeased with their appearance than men. The “bat wing” look is best avoided. So, for women who are experiencing excess flab in this area, a solution is essential. Upper arm liposuction is frequently the answer those women are looking for. However, there is a range of options for improving the appearance of the arms out there. How do you decide which is right for you?
Do Nonsurgical Fat Reduction Methods Work?
If you are worried about the appearance of your upper arms, it is only natural to look for an answer. When diet and exercise fail to have any effect, the next step is often nonsurgical methods. There are numerous nonsurgical options that market themselves as being the most effective solution. However, do they really work?
With their promise of minimal pain and no downtime, nonsurgical treatments appear to be the ideal solution to fat arms. However, what are the advantages and disadvantages of such treatments? Can they achieve the desired effect?
Liposuction or Nonsurgical Methods?
There are several nonsurgical options offered by various cosmetic surgeons. CoolSculpting is one of the best known. This procedure cools the fat cells until they break down with no surgery or puncturing of the skin. It’s no wonder that this sort of treatment is so attractive to anyone who wants minimal downtime and pain. However, there are downsides to CoolSculpting. It takes multiple treatments and as long as six months before you can see any results. Also, the results aren’t especially impressive.
The cost of several treatments comes to around the same price, or even more, than traditional liposuction. Also, you can only target a small fat pocket in a single treatment. Unless you only have a very small amount of excess fat that requires treating, CoolSculpting may not be for you. Since the fat reduction across the treated area only amounts to around 20 percent, it may not be worth it.
Why Choose Lipo?
While some cosmetic surgeons choose new treatments, Artlipo’s Dr. Su prefers traditional liposuction. This is because he is an expert in the field. He has many years of experience. Having honed his skills, he can produce impressive results for his patients. Dr. Su can produce very complete results, with excellent sculpting of contours and the reduction of fat.
Liposuction is customizable. That means it’s possible to obtain the changes in shape that you desire. Since you can also use it almost anywhere across your body and with precision, you can obtain your aesthetic goals.
When you choose a highly skilled surgeon, it’s possible to have even more control over the results. Fat is being manually removed in order to shape and improve your contours. That means that progress can be more easily visualized. This allows your surgeon to adjust his or her technique precisely to guarantee optimal results.
Many people opt for nonsurgical treatments because they are afraid of pain and scarring. However, in fact, this is minimal with lipo. Minimal scarring occurs and any discomfort is very manageable with over-the-counter pain relief. Results are also seen rapidly. Many patients notice the difference immediately. After a couple of months, the final results take shape as the swelling subsides. Patients will immediately notice that the results are dramatic. Although lipo isn’t a tool for weight loss, it’s possible to permanently remove the fat cells. That means, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, it’s possible to maintain the results. Meanwhile, nonsurgical treatments can only remove small amounts of fat within the treated area.
Many people are worried about the recovery process from lipo. However, it is surprisingly tolerable. Of course, it’s a surgical treatment, so you can expect a certain amount of discomfort. However, you can easily manage the initial pain by using standard pain medication. Most people can return to normal activities in just five days. Also, lipo is a tried-and-tested technique. For years, it has been helping people to feel good about their bodies. There is a good reason why it’s the most popular form of cosmetic surgery in the United States.
