WHAT IS AN ARM/LEGS LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction can be used in different parts of the body; its purpose is to eliminate unwanted fat through small incisions in localized areas such as the legs or arms. Our experienced team of surgeons achieve this with a subtle method of removing excess fat without compromising the integrity of the tissues, thus preventing fibrosis.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
Liposuction is a great option if you have a few localized problem areas you’d like to get rid but are difficult to sculpt with diet and exercise alone. With liposuction, you can expect smoother and more attractive body contours. For people who are very thin, high-definition liposuction can be used for abdominal marking also known as the “Six-Pack”.
Liposuction is a surgery that lasts anywhere from 1 to 3 hours, depending on the treatment areas. This procedure is done under anesthesia. A series of discrete incisions are created in the folds of the skin to carry out the process of extraction of accumulated fat.
The initial recovery period for liposuction generally takes about a week. During this time, some discomfort may occur, along with brief swelling and bruising. Initially, mobility will be limited along with some activity restrictions. This can include taking time off from work, exercising, and many of your normal daily activities. You may return to work after 1 week.
The ideal liposuction results are permanent, the fat does not grow back in the area where it was removed. A compression garment is placed over the top to support healing tissues and ensure a beautiful contour.
The cost of a liposuction on the legs or arms is $ 4,500 individually. If added as another surgery it is $ 3,000.
