What Arm Liposuction Options Exist in Melbourne?

At Me Clinic, we offer a variety of arm liposuction options to suit your needs and help achieve your desired results. From traditional liposuction techniques to laser-assisted methods, we have the right fat removal solution for you. Many Me Clinic patients struggle with accumulated fat in their upper arm area, making them feel self-conscious, especially in short-sleeve tops. As we age, a disproportionate and bulky look can form at the top of our arms, creating a pendulous body shape regardless of exercise and a quality diet.

The arm liposuction procedure can benefit for both men and women for correcting arm fat asymmetry or a disproportionate amount of fat. Me Clinic offers a solution that requires a recovery period, the length of which can vary depending on the individual.

Surgical Warning: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

What are the benefits of the arm liposuction procedure?

The team at Me Clinic have been performing liposuction techniques for over 35 years, and we are very experienced in various options including the popular arm liposuction.

The benefits of undergoing arm liposuction are:

  • Relatively fast recovery
  • A same-day procedure
  • Can be performed under local and general anaesthesia
  • While scarring is generally minimal, the extent can vary depending on the individual and the specific procedure
  • Long-lasting results
  • An increase in comfort and confidence.

Saggy Arms

Arm liposuction can significantly improve the appearance of saggy arms by removing excess fat and tightening the loose skin. Saggy arms can be a result of weight loss, aging, or genetic factors. Traditional exercise may not always be effective in toning this area and that’s why arm liposuction can be so effective by removing the unwanted fat.

Not only can this remove saggy arms, but the removal of the excess fat can make the arms appear more toned and firmer. The contoured look of the arms is long-lasting especially in combination with regular exercising. The procedure can also stimulate collagen production, which can further tighten the skin.

Cellulite Removal

Cellulite is a common skin condition characterized by a dimpled, “orange peel” appearance. It occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin. Arm liposuction can help remove cellulite in multiple ways and give your arms a smoother and more toned appearance.

As arm liposuction removes fat cells in the arm, the pressure on the skin and connective tissue is lessened, which can improve the appearance of cellulite. After the unwanted fat is removed, the skin often retracts and tightens which can smooth the dimpling commonly associated with cellulite.

Excess Skin Removal

While liposuction primarily targets fat, it can be combined with other procedures like an arm lift (brachioplasty) to remove excess skin. This is particularly beneficial for individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with loose skin on their arms. The combination of liposuction and skin removal can result in a more sculpted and aesthetically pleasing arm contour.


The techniques used in arm liposuction are minimally invasive, which means that any scarring is typically minimal. The small incisions made during the procedure are strategically placed in less visible areas, such as the natural creases of the skin, to minimize the appearance of scars. Over time, these scars fade and become less noticeable. Some liposuction methods, like laser-assisted liposuction, can also stimulate collagen production, which can aid in the healing and fading of scars.

Recovery Times for Arm Liposuction?

After the liposuction procedure, patients experience soreness and bruising. It is recommended that the arms be rested for the first 5 days. It is common for a compression garment to be worn for the duration of the recovery period. At the end of the 4th week post operation, most patients have completely recovered however patients usually resume their day-to-day lives well earlier.

Rest assured a thorough account of the recovery process and experienced recommendations will be given to all our patients. At the Me Clinic, we strive for the best patient experience possible and we continue to do so during aftercare.

Are you considering arm lipo? Here’s how to know if it’s right for you

The first step for every patient, regardless of the procedure, is a consultation with one of the Me Clinic doctors. We do this to ensure that a certain cosmetic procedure will be the right way to achieve your goals, rectify your issues and overall, ensure that you are happy with your body moving forward.

This consultation, often includes an assessment of your current situation to achieve desired results alongside realistic expectations of upper arm liposuction. The ideal candidates of arm liposuction are often those that:

  • Wish for a more toned look for their arms
  • Experiencing discomfort in their upper arms
  • Maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime but see no effect on their arm size
  • Are free from significant health conditions
  • Feel a lack of confidence in the appearance of their arms in certain clothing

The procedure itself involves local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic, where small incisions are made in the arm, through which a small cannula sucks the unwanted fat from the arms. There will likely be some swelling or bruising after the completion of the procedure, but many patients report it as a comfortable overall process.

What does arm liposuction cost?

The arm liposuction procedure cost will vary based on how significant the work required will be. We provide a no-obligation, tailored quote after your consultation that will give you a complete view of all costs.

The initial appointment is a vital part of determining your needs and provides an opportunity to answer all your questions. You will be provided with ample time to consider the costs and decide if you would like to move forward before confirming any procedure.

The Me Clinic recommends you do your due diligence with choosing a surgeon for your upper arm liposuction procedure. A surgeon’s skill and qualifications closely links to patient satisfaction and the success of an operation. Ultimately the quality of the operation is more important than the cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will recovery from arm liposuction take?

This will vary for each patient due to different healing abilities at most, slight swelling, inflammation, or bruising. These effects will subside after a few days.

Will the fat return?

The fat cells removed during the procedure are gone permanently; however, existing fat cells will grow if a healthy lifestyle is not maintained. Increasing the longevity of your liposuction results is easy to achieve with regular exercise, a stable weight and a healthy diet.

Are there risks I should be aware of?

While liposuction is generally considered safe, like any surgical procedure, it does carry some risks, and the skill level of the Me Clinic surgeons provides an assurance that you are getting top quality support and care. As with any standard surgery, risks do apply, inclusive of:

  • Contour irregularities or asymmetry
  • Unusual scarring
  • Bruising or inflammation
  • Temporary numbness
  • Allergic reactions to medications during surgery

We take every step and precaution to minimse these risks, and we keep your safety and wellbeing as a top priority at all times.

How will this improve my look?

Arm liposuction allows for very specific sculpting to create a toned look for your arms. As there will be less fat, you will have a natural arm shape that slims your overall look.

Will there be any scarring?

While scarring is generally minimal, the extent can vary depending on the individual and the specific procedure. The scars will also fade over time, and you can help this along with a standard skincare routine.
