Do you want to contour and tighten your arms without the need for cutting or scars? With Dr. Wu’s customized, minimally-invasive arm lift surgeries, you can finally do that. As you grow older, the accumulation of excess skin and fat tissues under your upper arms leads to flappy folds of skin, often called “bat wings.” Traditional arm lifts involve long incisions that leave a prominent scar on your arms, but a minimally invasive arm lift in Houston ensures natural and optimal results with minimal scars.
You’re a suitable candidate for a minimally invasive Arm Lift if you…
- Are in generally good physical and mental health.
- Don’t have underlying medical conditions that prevent optimal wound healing or recovery.
- Don’t smoke or are willing to stop smoking several months before and after the surgery.
- Have realistic expectations from the arm lift surgery.
- Have excess skin or fat under your upper arms.
Dr. Chaowen Wu is one of the leading plastic surgeons in Houston and The Woodlands, TX. She carefully examines your arms, discusses your cosmetic goals, and reviews your medical history to ensure you’re a suitable candidate. She also provides a list of guidelines to prepare your body for the procedure, ensuring safe and optimal results after your arm lift in Houston.
How do you recover after the Arm Lift?
You’ll experience post-treatment swelling and bruising on your arms for a few weeks after the surgery. You can reduce the discomfort with oral medications. Dr. Wu may ask you to wear compression garments for a few weeks to reduce swelling and ensure smooth healing. The scars on the underside of your upper arms will gradually fade away — the size and shape of the scar will depend on the technique used. Dr. Wu will provide a list of recovery guidelines to ensure optimal healing after your arm lift in Houston.
