Liposelection Gets Rid Of Flabby Arms
Getting rid of underarm flab has been a challenge for plastic surgeons. Previous procedures could leave large scars or hanging skin, but a new technique effectively and quickly removes underarm flab.
The key to liposelection is ultrasonic sound waves. A doctor first makes two cuts less than half-an-inch wide at the patient's elbow and armpit, and then inserts an ultrasound probe through the incisions that melts the fat.
Liposuction removes the melted fat.
