Upper Body Liposuction

Upper body liposuction procedures remove excess unwanted fat from areas such as the back, arms, chin, and neck. Following the procedure, patients experience a significant visual improvement in their body contours and notable boost in self-confidence. Serving the San Diego area, Dr. Nojan Talebzadeh along with his staff at the Eastlake Cosmetic Surgery Center, have the skills and experience needed to sculpt your upper body.

People often choose to receive upper body liposuction when they undergo massive weight loss through natural methods or bariatric surgery, if they have excess skin that follows pregnancy, if they are consistently discouraged by the lose skin around their arms, chest or waist, or if they have rolls of fat on their back or around the edges of the lower back. In order to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this type of procedure, there are some crucial factors to consider.

First, a patient must be in overall good physical health to receive this procedure. A patient will do better if they do not smoke, as smoking slows down the healing process and increases risks of complications after surgery. If a patient does smoke, they will need to quit a minimum of six weeks before the surgery. In addition, a patient’s weight will need to have been stable for at least six months, with no significant weight changes foreseen.

Target Trouble Areas:

  • Between/Under the Shoulder Blades
  • Axillary Region
  • Bra Region
  • Posterior Waist (lower, middle region of the back)
  • TChin/Neck liposuction

Arm Treatment Areas:

Upper body liposuction can improve arm regions by targeting the fatty tissue above the triceps muscle as well as on the back of the upper arm. Other treatment locations include the axillary fat pads, as well as the region above the breast where the shoulder meets the armpit.


What to Expect During Surgery

Patients who undergo an upper body liposuction procedure are placed under general anesthesia in an outpatient facility. During the procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision in the treatment area and uses a suction machine in conjunction with an instrument called a cannula, to remove unwanted fat. For patients who have experienced a more drastic weight loss, the incision that the surgeon performs will typically run from the elbow to the armpit and may extend along part of the upper chest wall towards the patient’s back.

Recovering After Upper Body Liposuction

Liposuction recovery is relatively mild. Patients tend to experience bruising and swelling for a few weeks after the operation, but these fade quickly and do not last. Special garments must be worn to minimize swelling and provide support during the healing process. In addition, drains may be required. A form of postoperative pain medication will be prescribed for the days immediately following the operation. Patients should expect the pockets of overly firm and indented skin to smooth out after about six weeks.

After this procedure you can be confident that your clothes will fit better and your body will appear slimmer, there will be no more loose skin that causes chafing or rashes, and the surgery will smooth out and fat deposits that make you uncomfortable. The cons to this type of procedure are that there are typically scars that the surgeon will attempt to hide. Most of the time, these scars are so minor, and so easily hidden or minimized that patients consider them well worth it.
