Procedure(s): Arm Lift
Correction: Removal of Excess Skin and Fat from Arm
Results: Very Happy
This 39 year old patient from Orange County was referred to Dr. Sadati by one of her best friends. She was interested in finding a cosmetic surgeon in Southern California to help improve her sagging arm. She had gastric bypass surgery and lost 60 pounds. She was very happy with the loss of her weight but was not happy with the hanging skin in her arms. She came to see Dr. Sadati in his Newport Beach practice to get rid of excess skin in her arms.
Dr. Sadati recommended an arm lift and she felt very comfortable with Dr. Sadati’s bed-side manner and extremely comfortable with his surgical experience. She is 12 months post operative and she loves the results and tells us that “I can go out in sleeveless shirts now!” Although her incision lines healed well the redness and scar appearance may last for many years.
To improve quality of incision lines in many instances, laser treatment or scar revision is recommended. Smoking, high blood sugar, excess sun exposure as well as certain disease will slow the healing process leading to prolonged redness and scaring.
