Sagging skin on the undersides of your arms may be due to several factors, such as age and significant loss of weight. The droopy skin under your arms can significantly affect your confidence, especially when choosing clothes. Fortunately, The Woodlands arm lift experts offer you an opportunity to restore your body image through an arm lift.
What is a Revel Arm Lift?
An arm lift is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the removal of excess fat by creating tiny incisions and sculpting your arm shape by tightening and lifting loose arm skin. As you age, the skin under your arms may start sagging, making the undersides of your arms appear droopy. While exercising can help strengthen and tone the muscles on your upper arm, it cannot restore the lost elasticity on the sagging skin. An arm lift addresses the sagging undersides of your arms by restoring your skin’s elasticity, making you feel more confident about your body.
What are the benefits of an arm lift?
Sagging skin under your arms can be embarrassing, even when showing simple gestures, such as waving to your friends. Luckily, you have absolute power over your body and can solve this issue by considering an arm lift. This surgical procedure guarantees excellent results that will leave you feeling more beautiful and confident in your body. Some of the benefits of an arm lift include:
- Removes excess skin and fat between your armpit and elbow
- Improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue, enhancing the appearance of your arms
- Reshapes your upper arm and makes your contours smoother and your skin soft to touch
- Helps your arms become proportionate with your other body parts
- The procedure leaves no or minimal scars that disappear with time

What happens during a Revel Arm Lift?
During your first appointment, Dr. Wu may conduct a thorough physical exam to determine the most appropriate treatment options for you. She may also review your medical history and inquire about any medications you may have taken recently. During the procedure, Dr. Wu makes tiny incisions on the lower side of your arms, and the length of these incisions depends on the amount and fat you need to remove. Afterward, she employs a suction technique to remove excess fat. Then she drapes the remaining skin over the repositioned contours and stitches or uses surgical tape to seal the incisions. After the procedure, the team at Revel You may loosely wrap your arms in elastic bandages to prevent swelling. They may also attach small tubes to your arms to get rid of excess fluid and blood. The team may also require you to wear a compression sleeve to reduce the swelling in your arms.
Dr. Wu may give a set of maintenance instructions to help you heal faster and avoid any complications. For more information about the Revel Arm Lift, call Dr. Wu or book your spot online.
