Even if you’re not overweight, it is possible to have an unpleasant “arm jiggle” due to lack of muscle tone. Liposuction can help smooth and tighten the area for a firmer, more youthful appearance.
Is there a weight requirement for liposuction?
It is recommended that, for best results, you be within 30 pounds of your ideal weight before undergoing liposuction.

Who is not a candidate for liposuction?
You are overweight or obese. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. You have a severe illness, medical condition, or infection that could impair healing. Your skin has poor elasticity.
Can a small person get lipo?
The short answer to this question, then, is that your size doesn’t really matter when it comes to liposuction. You could be a size 0 or a size 16. What’s more important is the amount of fat in certain areas of your body and how that fat collects. Liposuction is designed to remove specific—and problematic—areas of fat.
Does fat grow back after lipo?
Fat will not return (and ideal results will remain intact) if the patient maintains their “post-lipo weight.” For example, if a patient weighed 130 pounds prior liposuction and had a total of 6 pounds removed through the procedure, fat will stay away if the patient maintains their weight at or below 124 pounds.

Where does the fat go after liposuction?
