However, before performing liposuction of the hands, it is necessary to undergo a thorough examination and get advice from a qualified specialist.

Hygienic procedures should be carried out strictly without the use of lotions, perfumes, creams or antiperspirants.8 hours before the operation, it is forbidden to eat or drink.
What is the operation of
In the case when the patient would like to perform only an operation to remove fat on his hands, local anesthesia is used. If brachioplasty is also prescribed, general anesthesia is used.
The cuts the surgeon produces in the area of the back of the elbow, as well as in the area of the arm bend. Typically, the duration of the procedure is a maximum of 30 minutes. First, adipose tissue is divided by special preparations or by hardware methods. In the area of the forearm, the surgeon requires special care, since it is here that the blood vessels are located particularly close.
During the recovery period, swelling may occur. Also, hands after liposuction can get sick in those places where the intervention was performed. To neutralize these symptoms, it is recommended to use anesthetics. You also need to wear special compression underwear.
According to many doctors, the fastest, safest and most effective way to get rid of fat deposits is laser liposuction of the hands. Its meaning lies in the fact that through an incision in the field of operation, a special apparatus is introduced, which, with the help of the laser, destroys the accumulated fatty deposits. Surpluses are removed through the cannula - tubes that are connected to a special pump.
The main advantages of laser liposuction are that after it there is almost no scarring - only small traces will be visible in the places where punctures were made. But they eventually pass. Also undoubted advantage is the tight skin after the operation, since the laser helps to increase the production of collagen fibers. This has a positive effect on the elasticity of the skin. Another advantage of laser removal of fat deposits, which is often noted by patients, is a relatively fast period of rehabilitation of the body. The very next day after the procedure, if it is allowed to do the doctor, you can go home. If you wear an elastic bandage, then you can start working the next day.
In the global medical community, this procedure is also considered safe. In most developed countries, this type of liposuction is very popular. Its peculiarity lies in the fact that before the pumping out of fatty deposits their destruction is carried out with the help of a special preparation( Klein solution).After 20 minutes this substance significantly dilutes fatty tissue. During the operation of this type, the surgeon has the ability to pump more fat than with other types of liposuction.
Reviews about the procedure
Reviews about the liposuction arm in patients are very different. Some say that thanks to this operation they again were able to wear clothes several sizes smaller, and are very pleased with the results. Others complain that fat deposits very quickly return, if not to comply with a prescribed diet. Still others say that the operation did not give them any result. The conclusion can be drawn from here: the effectiveness of the procedure largely depends on the individual characteristics of the organism. Of course, before and after liposuction of the hands their appearance can not be compared - without fat deposits the picture is much more aesthetic. However, in order to achieve a good result, all the doctor's instructions must be followed before and after the intervention.
Features of the recovery period
The success of the procedure largely depends on the level of the doctor's qualification, and on the behavior of the patient during the rehabilitation period. First, the patient must be in the hospital for 1-3 days. Also one of the mandatory requirements is the wearing of special compression hoses. They cover the area of the arms from the forearm and up to the elbow joint. This measure helps prevent skin sagging, and also accelerates the recovery period.

- You can not drive a car during the first 2 weeks after the procedure.
