Do you want sculpted, toned arms but worry about the recovery, results, costs, and risks of arm liposuction? If a sexy definition without surgery risks is what you’re looking for, VASER liposuction could be your ticket.

Dr. Smith is an expert in this transformative arm-shaping technique. He’s well aware of the apprehensions people have about recovery discomfort, visible changes, and complication risks with arm VASER lipo. 

This guide dispels myths with facts while answering all essential questions. 

What Results Can I Expect From VASER Liposuction On Arms?

VASER liposuction on arms reduces overall fat while enhancing tone and contours for a more sculpted, athletic appearance, though final results take up to 6 months as swelling resolves and skin may require tightening.

How VASER Removes Fat

  • VASER uses ultrasound energy to gently target and break down fat deposits under the skin. This allows the liquefied fat to be suctioned out.
  • Considered more precise and less invasive than traditional liposuction methods.
  • Permanently eliminates fat cells in treated areas.

Expected Improvements

  • Reduces overall fat deposits in the arms.
  • Smooths bulges and enhances contours, especially around the triceps and shoulders.
  • Reveals better muscle definition for a more sculpted, athletic look.
  • Improves the appearance of cellulite dimpling by removing fat pockets beneath the skin.

What Is The Recovery Time For VASER Arm Liposuction?

The typical recovery time for VASER arm liposuction is 1-2 months, with the initial 1-2 weeks involving rest, compression garments, avoiding strenuous activity, and waiting for swelling/bruising to resolve before returning to normal daily life and seeing final results.

Initial Recovery Period: 1-2 Weeks

The first 1-2 weeks after surgery involve rest, medication, and allowing the body to begin healing. It is common to experience:

  • Swelling and bruising as the tissue trauma from fat removal starts to repair. This is normal postoperative inflammation.
  • Wearing a compression garment continuously (except for showering) as advised by Dr. Smith. This assists with controlling swelling and provides comfort.
  • Sticking to light activity and avoiding any strenuous exercise that could aggravate the healing tissues.

Return to Daily Life: 2-3 Weeks

  • Most patients can return to light desk work or normal daily activities after about 2 weeks of recovery time.
  • Those with manual labor jobs may require up to 3 weeks off before resuming occupational duties. This depends on the extent of treatment.
  • Dr. Smith advises waiting at least 4-6 weeks before returning to strenuous exercise or strength training sessions. This allows internal healing.

Full Results: Within 3-6 Months

It takes a full 3-6 months for residual swelling to completely resolve and see the final contours.

Be patient during this period as your body adjusts to your slimmer arm profile. Follow all of Dr. Smith’s post-procedure protocols.

Schedule monthly follow-up visits so we can monitor your progress and healing.

What’s The Difference Between VASER Arm Lipo And Traditional Lipo?

VASER arm lipo uses ultrasound energy for more precise fat targeting with faster recovery, while traditional lipo relies on physical force for removing larger volumes but with more tissue trauma according to Dr. Smith.

How Much Does VASER Arm Liposuction Cost?

A woman is standing at the clinic, paying the arm lift procedure.

According to Dr. Smith, the average cost for VASER liposuction of the arms falls within the range of $2,500 to $5,000 per arm. However, your individual factors and custom treatment plan will determine your price quote.

When calculating the total cost, additional fees may apply beyond Dr. Smith’s surgical fees. These may include expenses for the operating room, anesthesia, compression garments, and any postoperative medications or follow-up visits required. 

During your consultation, he will listen carefully to your goals and assess your needs before providing an accurate cost estimate.

In general, more extensive procedures involving multiple areas or larger treatment zones on both arms cost more than targeted spot treatments. 

Advanced high-definition VASERr techniques are typically more expensive as well, given the extra precision and artistry involved. However, this allows for exceptionally natural-looking contours.

While traditional liposuction may come with a lower upfront price, it often provides inferior results compared to VASER and a higher risk of complications that could require revisions

What Should I Wear After Undergoing VASER Arm Lipo?

After VASER arm lipo, wear compression garments continuously for 1-2 weeks then just during the day for several more weeks, along with loose, soft clothing to avoid irritating the healing treatment sites.

Compression Garments

  • Wear your provided compression garment continuously for the first 1-2 weeks, including day and night. This controls swelling and encourages proper skin retraction.
  • After the initial period, you can wear the garment just during the day. Continue wearing it for several more weeks per Dr. Smith’s instructions.
  • Ensure the garment fits snugly. Request a smaller size from our office if it becomes loose as the swelling subsides. Proper compression is vital.

Clothing Selection

  • Opt for loose, soft tops and fabrics that won’t rub or irritate the healing treatment sites.
  • Choose tops that open fully in the front or have zippers/buttons to avoid lifting arms overhead.
  • Once healing progresses, short sleeves may provide more comfort than long sleeves.
  • Avoid any restrictive clothing that could bother the treatment area in the months following your arm VASER lipo.

Are The Results Of VASER Lipo On Arms Long-Lasting?

The results achieved from VASER lipo on the arms can be quite long-lasting if proper steps are taken after your procedure as Dr. Smith attests. 

Because the ultrasound technology permanently destroys and removes treated fat cells, they do not regenerate or regrow in those areas.

However, significant weight gain after treatment can reduce the visual impact and longevity of your results. Fat may return in untreated sites if you gain weight, obscuring the arm contouring from your VASER lipo procedure.

To maintain your slimmer arm profile long-term, Dr. Smith recommends adhering to a stable “post-lipo weight” with proper diet and exercise. While some improvement is visible right away, your final, natural-looking results fully emerge around 3-6 months post-procedure as residual swelling dissipates.

With weight maintenance and a healthy lifestyle, many patients enjoy lasting sculpted, contoured arms from their VASER lipo for years. In some cases, the aesthetic improvements to the arms can be permanent when proper steps are followed after treatment.

What Are The Risks Associated With Upper Arm VASER Liposuction?

  1. Burns: The ultrasound energy can cause burns if not properly controlled. Dr. Smith takes care to use appropriate settings for your treatment areas.
  2. Contour irregularities: Asymmetry, dimpling, or waviness may occur if fat removal is uneven or skin elasticity is poor. Additional treatments can usually correct this.
  3. Seromas: Fluid accumulations under the skin that may require drainage if they occur.
  4. Infection: Low risk but possible as with any surgical procedure. Requires prompt treatment with antibiotics.
  5. Bleeding: Excessive bleeding could lead to a hematoma (blood clot) under the skin. Rare with Dr. Smith’s technique.
  6. Fat embolism: Very rare chance of fat particles traveling to the lungs or brain. Can be dangerous if it occurs.
  7. Numbness or nerve injury: Possible damage to small sensory nerves that may cause numbness or changes in skin sensation. Typically resolves over time.
