Do you avoid wearing short sleeves or sleeveless blouses and dresses in a social setting because you don’t like the look of your arms? Many women, particularly as they begin to age, find themselves facing unshapely arms that are fatty and flabby. Excess fat in the arms and at the armpits can make a woman look bulky and heavy. Liposuction of the arms can help give you smooth, shapely arms that accent, not distract from, the appeal of your body. Houston liposuction
Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure and liposuction of the arms has one of the highest satisfaction ratings. Thousands of women have chosen arm liposuction and are happier with the way they look and feel.
The procedure is easy and can be performed as an outpatient procedure in your doctor’s office. Older procedures often removed fat and excised some skin, leaving surgical scars. Now, with microcannula tumescent liposuction, only small incisions are needed to remove fat, ultimately leaving no visible surgical scars after recovery. The tumescent liposuction procedure can be used to remove fat in the arms and also at the armpits in the front chest area or at the back area where excess fat may be protruding causing a fat, flabby look.
The recovery period following liposuction of the arms is fairly minimal. You will be able to go home the day of your surgery. You will need to make arrangements to have someone drive you home and be prepared to stay with you the first night after surgery to help you out. Bruising and swelling, as well as some drainage at the incision sites, are common and should be expected after liposuction. You may experience some mild discomfort until the bruising and swelling subsides. This is easily managed with pain medication. To aid healing and help shape your arms, your doctor will ask you to wear a compression garment for approximately one week after surgery.
