What we do procedurally and who is the right candidate for the surgery
At Elliot Hospital our plastics and reconstructive surgery team specializes in various body procedures including:
- Body lift
- Arm lift (Brachioplasty)
- Thigh lift (Thighplasty)
The ideal candidate for these procedures is an overall healthy individual who is hoping to increase their confidence by improving the appearance of their body, arms, or thighs. Individuals considering surgery should not have medical conditions that could impair healing, such as poorly controlled diabetes and conditions that require treatment with immunosuppressants or steroids. Candidates should also be at a stable weight.
Recovery and The New You
Results from your surgery will be noticeable immediately. However it will take several months for swelling to resolve and full results to be appreciated. Incisions take a full 12-18 months to heal and fade. You will have routine visits scheduled with your plastic surgeon and/or physician assistant/nurse practitioner after surgery. At these visits, we will discuss your healing, address any questions or concerns you may have, and take photos to monitor your progress. We will also help guide you on how to care for your incisions to optimize healing and scar fading. We will remove sutures, skin clips, and/or drains at these visits, if applicable and when appropriate.
It is important for you and your plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and be sure that your expectations are both realistic and aligned. Our mission is always to provide patients with their ideal result .Hdowever sometimes patients require additional procedures to achieve their desired outcome.
