Having slimmer and more toned arms is a dream of most of women. We all agree that the best way to achieve this is by living healthy life and exercising. People fail to achieve their goal through healthy life and exercising would consider other non surgical or surgical options.

In Chelsea Cosmetics we perfected arms slim lipo through not only sculpt the lower fold of the arm, but to include all surfaces of the arms in a 180-360 degree more attractive 3D lipo. Using this procedure allows us to excellent results with much smoother and slimmer arms,

Arms sculpturing also should include areas that usually missed during normal lipo procedure which are the handing part above the elbows, the anterior bra folds and possible posterior bra folds.

On most of men, the fat layer under the skin is very thin and that allows the muscles to be easily seen while on women, the fat layer usually thick enough to pull the skin with gravity creating arm holds and hide any muscle contour even in a muscular woman.

In Slim lipo sculpting. we gently melt the fat and leave few millimetres of fat under to keep the skin nice and smooth and in the same time we contour you muscles accurately.

Arms liposculpture can be done either under local or general anaesthesia. When it is done under local anaesthesia we use tumescent which is a numbing mixture of local anaesthetic, saline and drug that helps to shrink the blood vessels and minimises the bruising and bleeding during the procedure.

Benefits of Tumescent versus general anaesthesia are many. Using tumescent minimises the risk we experience during general anaesthesia such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, blood pressure fluctuation, cardiac incidents etc. Other benefits of awake liposuction is that smaller instruments are used which results in less bruising and trauma, and quicker healing is generally seen.


Patients is required to fast overnight if they will have arm liposuction done under general anaesthesia and can have a light breakfast if under local anaesthesia.

The procedure is done under sedation and that lowers the patient’s stress before and during surgery, unless the procedure is done under general anaesthesia. The skin is injected with local anaesthesia and then a small nick in the skin made to inject tumescent and to suck the fat out, and then tumescent is injected under the skin to numb the whole area.

The laser is used first under the skin to melt the fat and tightens the skin (if slim lipo is chosen) and then power assisted suction (PAL) is used gently under the skin where the cannula vibrates and breaks the remaining fat without using any power force.

PAL has much stronger power to remove more fat from the patient than conventional liposuction without the need to use any man power force.


Tumescent anaesthesia is a large volume of diluted local anaesthesia that has the advantage of numbing the liposuction area and at the same time, it shrinks the blood vessels which minimises the discomfort during the surgery and any chance of bleeding after the surgery.

  • Unrealistic expectation.
  • Patients that have undergone crash dieting prior to the treatment.
  • Morbid Obesity (mega surgical liposuction is controversial due to higher risk of mortality from fluid shifts)
  • Anaesthesia (allergy to the medications)
  • Patients with history of bad scarring or keloids

Minor & Common Complications:

  • Negligible complications do not pose a threat to the patient’s life or affect their bodily functions or interfere with their work ability.
  • Trivial complications cover Temporary bruising, Seroma, allergic reactions to drugs, irregularities of the skin or unevenness and hematomas.
  • Less common side effects include necrotizing fasciitis, infection and local Anaesthesia risks.

“Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from another appropriately qualified health practitioner.”

Arm liposuction procedures can be performed using several methods. Your cosmetic surgeon will determine the best method depending on your body type and the amount of excessive fat to be removed.

The liposuction methods used for arm liposuction procedures are:

  • The super-wet arm liposuction method
  • The tumescent liposuction method
  • The Slim Lipo laser-assisted method
The super-wet arm liposuction

Super-wet arm liposuction is a simple procedure where an incision is made near the elbow, the armpit or on the side of the arm. This incision is made based on the patient’s body type. A tube is then inserted into the incision and a liquid is passed through it into the fat. Once the fat deposit breaks down it is removed via high-pressure suction. The skin and muscles around the treated area are completely unaffected during the procedure. This method causes little or no damage to the tissues.

The tumescent liposuction

In this method, a considerable amount of fluid (diluted local anesthetic solution) is introduced into the area to be treated for excessive fat reduction. The solution causes numbness in the treatment area and compresses the blood vessels, thus reducing localised bleeding. This makes the procedure totally painless. Excess fat is then removed from the arms. To ensure the patient experiences no pain or discomfort, the entire procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia or heavy sedation.

The Slim Lipo assisted liposuction

Slim Lipo is the most recent procedure introduced in arm liposuction which uses a laser-assisted method for excess fat removal. This method also involves using fluids to disintegrate fat deposits, helping in the effective removal of the bulge of fat. Laser-assisted liposuction is as effective as the super-wet and tumescent methods and has similar advantages, including minimal bleeding and nominal damage to the tissue and muscles surrounding the treated area.



Arm liposuction can be done under local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia. We give the two options to our patients. The procedure is done in accredited day surgery.

After the procedure the arms get swollen due to the fluids injected at the time of the procedure and the swelling goes down gradually over four weeks. Patients can perform light activities from day 3 after surgery but full recovery is completed in 4-6 weeks.

During arm liposuction we remove the fat cells not just the fat and that gives the patient permanent results. In case of putting on weight the fat goes to other areas before going to the arms.

There are few factors contributes in the amount of skin left after liposuction. Age of the patient is one of the major factors; the younger is the patient the less likely to have sagging skin after arm liposuction also the quality of the skin, people with lots of stretch marks are more likely to have saggy skin after arm liposuction. Other factors contribute to the sagginess of skin after arm liposuction includes smoking, lack of exercises and hereditary factors.

Garments are provided after surgery to help with the swelling and to decrease the discomfort after surgery. It is advisable to wear the garment for two weeks’ day and night and for 2 more weeks as long as possible.

Slim laser assisted technology provides a good degree of skin tightness as proven scientifically. Patients with mild to moderate sagging skin are ideal for the procedure while patients with severe sagging arm skin do not suitable for the procedure.

The patient can see results after 4 weeks of the procedure while the maximum results get achieved in 6-9 month where the maximum results of skin retraction.

However the quality of liposuction is more important than the liposuction cost. If the ultimate goal of liposuction is to have a happy patient, then the surgeon’s expertise and experience are probably more important than finding the cheapest liposuction surgeon.



At Chelsea Cosmetics we charge from $3500 for arm liposuction.

The surgeon is incredibly attentive like you are his most important patient. He answers your questions at any hour after surgery. Before I decided on Dr Attalla I went to another very well known and publicized cosmetic surgeon. Dr Attalla and his staff have the best bedside manner and Dr Attalla has insisted on keeping an eye on my recovery, always making himself available

I have done both upper and lower blepharoplastry this April at Chelsea Cosmetics. I am so happy with the results now. It takes times to heal so you need patience. My eye areas are so rejuvenated and I enjoy the make up ever than before. I feel I should have done it earlier. Dr Mark listens to your concerns and provides the best advice. Dr Mark and team looks after you. Thank you.
