Liposuction may be performed to achieve a smoother result and/or reduce the amount of fat in the upper arms. You will return home wearing a compression garment and/or dressings. Discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. You may experience soreness and tightness in the upper arms, bruising, and minor swelling.
