For many women, wearing a strapless dress, bathing suit, or even a tank top is an anxiety inducing experience. You can spend 4-5 days a week in the gym, have a very clean diet, and STILL be stuck with the dreaded underarm/bra bulge. These stubborn pockets of fat around your upper arm area can be a source of major insecurity for women. How can you get rid of these unsightly bulges?

You will often hear that by working out that specific area of the body you can spot-reduce fat. Unfortunately, this is just a myth. The only way to reduce fat is to lose fat over your entire body. But, what if you are already in good shape and the fat still will not go away?

The good news! There are many non-surgical options offered that will get rid of the underarm fat. These procedures are minimally invasive and do not require the kind of recovery time a full brachioplasty, or arm lift, does.

Liposuction Your Underarm Fat Away

Liposuction can sound daunting, because typically it is performed on a large area of the body, such as your tummy or thighs, so the procedure and recovery time long. But with underarm liposuction, there is no anesthesia involved – just a mild sedative and the area is numbed. A small incision is made, and the plastic surgeon vacuums out the fat cells. For many women, the procedure is done in an hour or two, and typically they are back to their normal routine in 2-3 days.

CoolSculpting for Thinner, Sleeker Arms

Coolsculpting is a non-invasive, fat-blasting method that freezes fat cells to kill them. Typically, one 35 minute session can reduce up to 20% of the fat cells in the treated area. A CoolCurve applicator is attached to the treated area during the session while you rest in a comfortable chair in a private room. 

Generally, a patient will feel coolness for a few minutes before the area becomes numb. The skin will be sensitive for about a half hour after the procedure, but should return to normal shortly thereafter. CoolSculpting most often requires multiple sessions to get the desired results. This can be done in a lunch hour as there is no down time involved.

Kybella Dissolves Your Arm Fat Away

Kybella has been taking the cosmetic world by storm since its FDA approval in 2015. Kybella is an injectable medication that works like a detergent to dissolve fat in targeted areas. Kybella’s primary active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a natural substance that helps your body breakdown and absorb fat.

A series of small needles are used to inject the medication into unwanted areas of fat. It takes some time to see the complete results of the Kybella injections, and many patients schedule about 2-3 sessions to achieve their desired look. The procedure is done in a matter of minutes when used to get rid of the bra bulge and underarm fat.
