Lipoedema of the Arms

Lipoedema of the arms affects mainly the upper part of the arm. The accumulation of fat is commonly distributed from elbow to armpit. The arm has a characteristic bingo-wing shape.

VASER can successfully reduce the bulk and also tighten the skin in most cases. This can be done under local anaesthetic as a day case. If there is too much excess skin then an armlift is the only option.

Who is the treatment best suited for?

Anyone where there is not too much skin laxity.
