What can I do to improve results? Should I be freaked out by what my arms look like right now?I had laser lipo and minimal scar arm lift 6 weeks ago. Here are the results and I am so worried they are permanent. I am doing radio frequency once a week.

Lymphatic massage?

I don't think you should be freaked out, but you need to communicate well with your plastic surgeon. If you were my patient, I would send you fro lymphatic massage twice a day and firm supportive wrapping 24 hours. I think it will get better soon. Best wishes always, Dr. ALDO

I appreciate your question.

I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients.  Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!
