Loose skin and excess fat in the upper arms is notoriously difficult to alter with diet and exercise alone. The flabby excess, known as ‘bingo wings’, can become more noticeable as skin elasticity and firmness decreases with age. Vaser liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that can target this problem area. Shaping and sculpting the upper arms, using Vaser technology, creates a sleek and smooth silhouette and improves body confidence.
What Is Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser liposuction is a low-impact body sculpting procedure that removes sub-dermal fat from targeted areas of the body. This treatment works especially well on flabby bingo wings because it reshapes and redefines the upper arms. Vaser liposuction is performed under local anesthetic and is a walk-in/walk-out procedure. It is usually a one-off treatment.
- Vaser liposuction arms recovery time will depend on the amount of underlying fat and the degree of skin tightening involved in shaping and sculpting the upper arms. It is important that you do everything that you can to aid your liposuction recovery.
- After the procedure the treatment site will be covered with a small dressing for 24 hours. Keep the treatment site dry for at least one week after surgery. This means that you cannot fully shower or bathe, or go swimming. Dressings and bandages must be kept dry and clean and should be changed regularly.
- Vaser liposuction arms recovery requires that you wear a compression garment for a few weeks. This ensures that the skin does not have any ‘drag’ whilst the healing process takes place.
- During the recovery process it is important to drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated. Avoid alcohol for at least the first 2-3 days after the treatment. Your doctor will advise you on when you can return to normal activities.
Shape And Sculpt
After the shaping and sculpting procedure you will usually be able to leave the clinic within an hour. As no general anesthetic is involved during the procedure your Vaser liposuction arms recovery time will be much faster than after traditional lipo surgery. You will therefore be able to carry on with your normal everyday life in a day or two. Provided that you follow Vaser liposuction arms recovery advice you will be able to bare your arms in strappy tops and dresses in a matter of weeks.
What Are The Side Effects?
Most people report some treatment site soreness for 1-3 days. Painkillers will help minimise discomfort. You may also have bruising and/or swelling. All common side effects and complications will be discussed during your pre-treatment consultation.
