Transform Your Arm in Your Lunch Hour | Minneapolis

Many women in Minneapolis and St Paul hate the fat deposits and sagging in their upper arms, which is more noticeable in their middle age. It is also very difficult to hide.

Many of us have a short list of go-to exercises to help tone the upper arms. Although exercise can tone your muscles in the upper arms and shoulders, it usually won’t help much in reducing the fat and tightening skin.

arm_1Traditionally, brachioplasty (surgical armlift) was the only answer for it. It involved a large incision, long recovery time and a high cost. Now, if women have an hour in their lunch time, they could have their arm transformed with lunch break lipo. Lunch Break Lipo with new Vaser or laser lipo technologies is a great way to achieve lean, sexy arms. Yes, in just an hour, we are able to have your upper arms transformed.

Most patients see results almost immediately and return to normal activities either right away or the next day. Vaser or laser are on the cutting edge of liposuction technologies as they are less invasive and gentler than traditional liposuction. Most patients only require one treatment.

You are able to schedule the lunch break lipo without consultation if you are healthy. A small percentage of cases with severe skin sagging may require the combination of liposuction with a mini or full arm-lift, we recommend you to have the complimentary consultation if you think you have a case with severe skin sagging.

Younger patients with tight skin in the arm may also consider Hi Def liposculpture for firm, sculpted athletic upper arms.



Liposuction Myths in Minnesota (1)

With the advancement of new liposuction technologies and cost reduction, liposuction is no longer reserved only for the rich, and it has now become increasingly common among the general population. There are lots of liposuction myths among the general public. People in Minnesota think liposuction does things it doesn’t (such as weight reduction). These ideas can lead to disappointment when the results of the procedure don’t live up to these misconceptions.

Here are 10 facts about liposuction that you should be aware of:

Liposuction Myth 1: Liposuction is only for Women.
Fact: Even men are using liposuction to enhance their appearance. Men interested in getting rid of excess fat are now increasingly interested in liposuction. Liposuction was said to be the third most popular surgery performed on men. The common areas of liposuction for men are abdomen, chest, neck, love handles, and thighs.

Pseudogynecomastia is probably among the most common types of male breast enlargement in Minnesota adults. Since the areas surrounding the breast in the pseudogynecomastia are mainly. fatty tissue, liposuction should be the first choice to correct it.

Vaser Hi def liposculpture is very popular advanced liposuction procedure in young men that creates 6 packs in their abdomen and athletic looking.



Liposuction for Minnesota Men

Nearly everyone struggles with unwanted body fat. Even those who have the strictest diets and exercise regimens will have to deal with bulges here and there. As men age, they begin to store fat in the abdominal region. This fat is highly resistant to diet and exercise. Instead of throwing in the towel, many men are now turning to liposuction to get rid of unwanted fat and sculpt their chest and abs into a younger, more defined shape.

According to a report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) in 2011, men accounted for 13% of all cosmetic procedures in the United States. Among the most popular, is male liposuction. The ASPS report estimates that men spent a combined $69 million dollars in 2011 on liposuction procedures.

Dr. Steven Shu sees many men in his practice and agrees that liposuction is one of the most requested male cosmetic procedures. “Men, like women, are very concerned about the appearance of their bodies. It isn’t shown as much on the news or in magazines, but more and more men are turning to cosmetic surgery to help them look and feel younger and healthier,” says Dr. Shu, founder of Shu Cosmetic Surgery in Edina, Minnesota.

Vaser Liposuction is one of the most effective techniques. Vaser lipo uses ultrasound energy to selectively dissolve fat cells, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. Like laser lipo, Vaser Lipo is minimally invasive, performed in our Edina cosmetic treatment center just outside of Minneapolis. Vaser Lipo is ideal for men because it gives Dr. Shu the ability to sculpt the abdomen into a muscular appearance.

Vaser Lipo can also be used to treat other areas of the body including the chin, neck, chest, back and calves.
