What Do I Do If My Upper Arm Liposuction Results Aren’t What I Expected?

Have you had upper arm liposuction but are unhappy with the results? Unfortunately, some women don’t see the results they were hoping for after their procedures. This could be for several reasons. 

In some cases, you may have chosen a surgeon who lacks the necessary skills and experience to produce good results. In other cases, you may not have been a good candidate for the procedure in the first place. Some women with excess skin, as well as fat, find their results are poor from arm lipo. They would have seen a better outcome if they had opted for an arm lift instead. In a few cases, you may have failed to follow the surgeon’s recommendations after your procedure. If you didn’t wear your compression garment as instructed or started exercising too soon, the outcome might be poor. Whatever the reason for your dissatisfaction, you’ll want to know what you can do about it.

What Kind of Problems Can Arise After Arm Lipo?

Every woman who has liposuction on her arms wants smoother, slimmer contours. If things go wrong, the result can be unattractive. Some surgeons are too aggressive in their fat removal. If a surgeon removes too little or too much fat, this can lead to deformities and skin indentations. Lumps and bumps can appear on the arms, and the skin may appear wrinkled. If you’re unhappy with the results of your lipo, it can make you even more self-conscious than before. 

What Are the Signs of Botched Arm Liposuction?

Several signs can indicate a surgeon has botched your arm liposuction. These include:

  • Sagging of the skin
  • Uneven, lumpy areas that don’t have a smooth texture to the touch
  • Discolored skin (once the initial bruising has subsided)

Can You Revise Arm Liposuction Results?

Here at Artlipo, Dr. Su carries out lipo revision surgery to help you achieve the look you dreamed of. With advanced techniques and years of experience, he can help you to get the arms you wanted. The revision of arm liposuction is quite similar to the original procedure you had. A cannula will remove the existing fat cells without taking away too little or too much from the upper arms. Meanwhile, Dr. Su will fill in any uneven grooves and hollow areas. Revising poor liposuction results takes a lot of training and skill. The surgeon must also have an eye for detail. However, Dr. Su is extremely experienced and can produce impressive results.

What Happens After Revised Lipo?

Following your revision procedure, you will need to wear your compression garment again for two to three weeks. You can expect some swelling and bruising, however, it should be short-lived. Dr. Su will advise you about what to expect after your surgery. He will also schedule follow-up appointments to check on your progress. Once the initial swelling and bruising have subsided, you should see improvements in your arms. After a few months, you will see the result, and it should delight you.
