Comparing Brachioplasty and Liposuction for Toning the Arms

Last updated 2 years ago

Plastic surgery can help you achieve a toned, slim figure, especially following weight loss. Two of the most effective ways to achieve slimmer and trimmer upper arms are liposuction and brachioplasty. Each of these plastic surgery techniques addresses a slightly different cosmetic need, so keep reading to find out more about these arm toning plastic surgery procedures.

  • Liposuction

Liposuction is the removal of fat from beneath the skin, which results in a smoother, slimmer, and more toned appearance. For those who have lost some weight due to exercise or diet, but would still like to reduce the size of problem areas such as the upper arms, liposuction is an ideal procedure. Liposuction simply removes the fat from your arms, resulting in a less flabby appearance. No skin is removed, however, so only those with small amounts of excess skin or fat will significantly benefit from a liposuction procedure for their arms.

  • Brachioplasty

Unlike liposuction, a brachioplasty procedure, or arm lift, is specifically designed for those who have lost a significant amount of weight but still suffer from loose, droopy, inelastic skin in the upper arms. A brachioplasty procedure will remove excess skin from the arms and tighten the remaining skin for a slimmer look. This procedure is ideal in cases where skin has lost its elasticity, sometimes as a result of aging or weight gain. While liposuction only removes excess fat, brachioplasty removes excess skin to avoid skin folds and loose skin.
