Am I a good candidate for liposuction of the arms?

I'm 38 and a mom of 3. I am 5'5" tall and have a consistent weight of 155 - 160. I’ve always had heavy arms and have to get larger sizes to fit my upper arms. I’d like arms more proportional to my body. I've had a consult with varying comments about how my arms would respond to lipo. One surgeon said I should be pretty satisfied and another said I should only consider an arm lift. I’m not an extreme weight loss patient. How exactly is skin elasticity determined and who do I believe?

It will depend on the laxity on your skin, if you only have extra fat with well toned skin, liposuction will solve your problem. If the important laxity is not present, you will need an arm lift. Try to choose an ASAPS member Plastic Surgeon.
