Brachioplasties, or arm lift surgeries, are on the rise. Since 2000, plastic surgeons have seen a 4,000 percent increase in demand for this procedure. This video explains more.
Arm lift surgery gets rid of excess skin on the bottom parts of the arms. In most cases, this skin is left behind after a significant weight loss. As the body gets smaller, the skin can’t always snap back into shape. Arm lift surgery corrects this. Although a scar is left behind after surgery, most patients prefer the scar to the excess skin.

A breast lift can revitalize your appearance and even renew your self-esteem. Since this type of cosmetic surgery normally involves no overnight stay at a med spa, a breast lift can make it easy to enhance your look with minimal recovery requirements. As with any form of plastic surgery, however, it’s important to keep in mind some preparations necessary to ensure a safe and successful procedure.
Prior to undergoing a breast lift, discuss all health issues with Dr Geoghegan. She should be aware of any existing conditions and medications. If you take drugs that may interfere with your body’s clotting abilities, she may ask that you refrain from using them in the weeks preceding your procedure. Certain habits can also adversely affect your health during and after your breast lift procedure. If you use tobacco products, your plastic surgeon may recommend that you cease smoking. Maintaining a stable weight in the weeks leading to your procedure can also help to ensure that your breast tissue does not undergo changes that may affect the outcome of your surgery.
Most surgical procedures, including breast lifts, require some rest and recovery time. To guarantee that your body has the time it needs to heal, make schedule adjustments well ahead of your surgery. If you have small children at home, you may ask a friend or family member to assist you with their care in the days after your breast lift. Engaging in activities that require lifting could damage healing incisions, so see to it that you can avoid these types of movements as you recover. If you work outside the home, you may want to discuss your temporary leave options with your employer so you can heal as needed.
