Sculpt Your Arms with ArmSculpt
You do hundreds of bicep curls. You do hundreds of tricep dips. You eat a healthy diet and workout regularly. No matter what you do, your arms are still flabby. It makes you embarrassed to wear tank tops and sleeveless shirts. ArmSculpt by XSculpt can help you achieve the definition you have been working so hard to get!
ArmSculpt is a technique developed by XSculpt designed to shape your arms, making them more defined and attractive by removing the fat and excess skin that hangs down which occurs as a result of rapid weight loss or age.
*At XSculpt, our philosophy is to use a combination of hormone optimization with laser body-sculpting procedures to achieve MAXIMUM definition that can’t be achieved with any one single modality. By using all of these FDA-approved techniques, we can help you eliminate unwanted fat and increase definition in the upper arms.

How will ArmSculpt make my arms look better?
ArmSculpt, similar to a “brachioplasty”, uses a range of procedures depending on the amount of skin and fat that has to be removed and your expectations. Most people can undergo a combination of laser therapy and traditional liposuction which results in both removing the fat and tightening of the skin. The procedure is minimally invasive requiring tiny incisions that will fade over time, becoming practically invisible.
*If you have a large amount of fat and extra skin, longer incisions may be necessary to get the cosmetic result you want but these incisions almost always heal uneventfully and are well hidden.
ArmSculpt™ by XSculpt FAQ
Who is a candidate for ArmSculpt?
*The perfect candidate for ArmSculpt is the fit patient with low to normal BMI (Body Mass Index) who retain excess fat in the upper arms, preventing them from achieving good muscle definition. ArmSculpt is not designed for obese or high-BMI patients nor those who have significant loose skin seen after weight-loss. Those patients may be better suited for an excision procedure like a brachioplasty.
Is there a non-surgical way to tone arms?
*SculpSure for arms is a non-invasive laser procedure in which laser is delivered to specific fatty areas using special applicators. The laser specifically targets fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction, while leaving skin, nerves, and muscle tissue unharmed! The entire procedure takes 25 minutes per area and is totally NON-INVASIVE which means there are no incisions or recovery and you simply continue with your usual activity immediately following the procedure.
How is Smartlipo for the arms performed?
*SmartLipo for arms can be done either awake with pain medication or under deeper sleep with IV sedation. Rarely is general anesthesia required for SmartLipo. Small 1-2mm incisions are used to injected tumescent fluid which contain medicine to numb the area and help to liquefy the fat and minimize bleeding. A special laser fiber is then used to melt and sculpt the fat and help tighten the skin. Finally the liquid fat is removed using liposuction. There is some temporary drainage and potential bruising and swelling following the procedure, but most patients are back to work in 3-5 days.
*How long does it take to see results? With both SculpSure and SmartLipo, there is a healing process that must occur before seeing your final results. With SculpSure, you will generally see results after 6-12 weeks after your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells and you may require 2-3 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart. In the case of SmartLipo, you will see results immediately but there is a period of swelling and scar tissue maturation and gradual skin tightening that has to occur. Therefore it may take up to 6 months to see your final results!
How long will it take to see the results following my ArmSculpt?
*The time it will take to see the results will depend upon several factors such as the type of procedure you undergo, the size of the treatment area, and your own individual ability to recover after the surgery. It can take several weeks to half a year before your final result is appreciated as the swelling in the treatment area subsides. The final result will depend upon your physical condition before the procedure and how consistent you are with maintaining a healthy lifestyle afterwards. If you maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen, the results from your ArmSculpt will last!
Will the fat come back?
*The beauty of fat-elimination procedures like SculpSure and SmartLipo is that fat cells don’t regenerate. Unlike weight loss in which fat cells are simply shrunken, fat-cells destroyed and removed by SculpSure or SmartLipo don’t return. That means your capacity to store fat in that area is COMPLETELY reduced!
What will my recovery be like after ArmSculpt?
*A mild to moderate amount of discomfort can be expected with swelling and sensitivity at the areas treated. Depending upon which of the ArmSculpt procedures you undergo, your recovery can vary. Medications and compression garments may be prescribed to ease your discomfort as well as to accelerate the healing process. Overall, the discomfort typically lasts as long as two weeks. Shortly after, your results will become evident in your symptoms will begin to disappear.
How much scarring will there be?
*Some amount of scarring will always occur with any procedure that involves skin incisions. With SmartLipo and liposuction the incisions are very small and usually fade in time. There may be some mild discoloration at the site where the surgery occurred which resolves once the healing process is complete.
What makes ArmSculpt different?
*Here at XSculpt, we have the ability and the protocol to COMBINE these minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures with weight and hormone optimization to achieve the leanest, most dramatic results possible. Our XSculpt surgeons are experts in both bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) as well as laser and surgical body-sculpting procedures. We develop a customized treatment plan for each individual in order to achieve MAXIMUM RESULTS!
What is the cost for ArmSculpt?
The price for all the procedures at XSculpt are very competitive compared to other centers providing the same services, however not all of these centers have board-certified cosmetic surgeons who are dedicated to providing you the best results with your safety as a priority. Make sure you do your homework on your surgeon before any cosmetic procedure is performed on you.
