Background: Excess fat and skin in the upper arms have become troublesome with aging and especially after the advancement in methods of weight reduction. Arm contouring procedures can be divided into three groups: those dealing with skin redundancy, those dealing with the lipodystrophy, and a combination of both. This study tries to find an answer to the debate about the safety of simultaneous circumferential liposuction and brachioplasty. Read More

Background: Upper arm liposuction mainly focuses on the posterolateral region, which may lead to a lack of harmony between the aspirated and unaspirated areas. In addition, the treatment effect of arm liposuction is often evaluated only by preoperative and postoperative photograph comparison and simple measurement; quantitative research on this topic is still lacking.Methods: The multi-positional circumferential arm liposuction (MCAL) technique was proposed and applied to a total of 34 females in our hospital from 2017 to 2019.

We classify lower trunk deformities using three parameters: (1) excess skin (in the horizontal direction, or both horizontally and vertically); (2) the body mass index (BMI); and, (3) skin quality (hyperlaxity or a normal tone).
