Revision Arms Liposuction
Revision liposuction is available on most parts of the body, including the arms, legs, abdomen, face, and back. Patients seek revision liposuction on their arms, particularly the backs where excess fat can accumulate as people – particularly women – age.
Revision liposuction is the correction of a previous fat removal surgery. People may get their results revised if less fat was removed than they desired, if the results were uneven or asymmetrical, or if the treated areas were not blended well with the surrounding areas. In the latter case, there may be an abrupt and noticeable change between the area where fat has been removed and the surrounding tissue where no fat has been removed. An inexperienced surgeon may not have acquired the skill to seamlessly blend the surgery site with the body or to sculpt two matching areas, like the hips or arms, so that they are symmetrical. A skilled liposuction surgeon can often correct these issues and give the patients the results they want.
People sometimes seek revision arm liposuction when the results do not match. Arm liposuction involves the removal of excess fat from underneath the skin by way of small incisions. Excess fat can accumulate on the backs of the arms, where the triceps are located. This excess fat can appear loose. With the removal of the fat, the skin can tighten itself considerably because of its own natural elasticity. Because two identical body parts are involved, it is important that the surgeon be able to make the results consistent. If the amount of fat removed is not the same from both arms, or the areas were not well blended, it may require revision arm liposuction to correct one or both arms.
Revision liposuction works just like the original procedure. The difference is that, since it’s being performed again on the same body part, it is essential that the doctor is experienced in revision liposuction.
