Laser Liposuction for the Arms

Excess fat and loose skin in the upper arms makes women shy away from exposing them, which means no swimsuits or sleeveless dresses. Many men also develop saggy arms which no amount of gymming or diets can resolve. Laser liposuction can address the condition by removing excess fat and skin easily to result in firmer, sculpted upper arms. When performed using Smartlipo Triplex technology, arm laser liposuction offers benefits such as safety, efficiency and quick recovery.

Are You a Candidate for Arm Liposuction?

Arm liposuction is a good treatment for adults with good skin quality and significant upper arm skin sag. You should not be significantly overweight or have any medical condition that will interfere with the healing process or increase surgical risks. You should be a non-smoker with a positive outlook and have realistic expectations about the outcome.

How the Procedure is Performed

SmartLipo Triplex is a versatile workstation that combines the benefits of multiple laser wavelengths (1440, 1064 and 1320 nm). The plastic surgeon inserts the laser enabled cannula through small incisions in the treatment site. The laser energy melts the stubborn fat so that it can be easily removed. The device also provides superior skin tightening effects. The outcome is smooth, well-toned upper arms.

Benefits of the Treatment

• Minimally invasive procedure
• Generally takes only around 1-2 hours
• Minimal pain and discomfort
• Performed using local anesthesia
• Results in well-shaped arms without the need for invasive surgery
• Minimal complications or risks
• Very small incisions and minimal scars


Patients are instructed to rest the arms for a few days and avoid excessive stress in the area. A special compression garment needs to be worn around upper arms for approximately 2 weeks. In most cases, it is possible to return to work in a week or so.
