Arm liposuction is the removal of fat from the underarms. It is a procedure which focuses on abnormal fat deposits and fatty accumulation. In general, women are more prone to the development of fatty upper arms than are men. The accumulation of excess fat in the upper arms can occur at any stage in a woman's life, regardless of age and even body weight. Many women who are in otherwise fairly fit physical condition, carrying little excess weight, can still develop fatty upper arms, making the upper arm liposuction a procedure to consider.
Surgeons will often not perform arm liposuction procedures on people who are more than 15 lbs overweight. In general, most of those who have the procedure are not overweight individuals; they are simply people who have the tendency to develop excessive and abnormal fatty deposits in their upper arms. In general, anyone who is embarrassed by the appearance of their upper arms can be a potential liposculpture patient. Many who have excessive fat or saggy upper arms make strong candidates for this procedure. Others who have disproportionate upper arms or have the tendency to develop odd pockets of fatty deposits in the upper arms can also be potential candidates.
