Liposuction. Our 29 year-old female patient underwent liposuction to remove the fat and reduce the flabby and loose skin under her arms for a more toned look. Dr. Tehrani started by removing the excess fat from her arms using power-assisted liposuction. After removing the fat, he then went in to further contour her arms using laser-assisted liposuction. Liposuction is a procedure used to improve the body’s contour by removing stubborn fat deposits that have failed to respond to diet and exercise. Note that while liposuction removes the fat cells from the treated area, it is not a substitute for weight control or exercise. If you gain weight after liposuction, however, the fat will be distributed more uniformly throughout your body. It will not accumulate disproportionately in the same areas.
