Are You Ready for Your Arm Lift Surgery?

Undergoing surgery or any other treatment is something that you should be prepared for – most especially if it is an invasive one like an arm lift or brachioplasty. This type of plastic surgical procedure has provided a lot of patients with slimmer, more contoured arms. By removing the excess skin in the area that causes the arm to sag and create a flap, the arm is made firmer and younger-looking.

But do not get giddy just yet. It takes weeks, or even a month, of preparation to obtain successful results from your arm lift.

Make sure that you are in your ideal weight.

Many people have this misconception that an arm lift is only ideal for obese or overweight individuals. While they may be candidates for the procedure, it is still best to reduce your weight, or your Body Mass Index (BMI), to the normal range. Excess fatty deposits in your arms will alter the results after the removal of excess skin, which means that the lesser fat you have in the area, the better your brachioplasty results will be.

Do not leave any question unanswered. 

While you are having your consultations with Dr. Wallach, make sure that you have already asked everything that you are unsure of regarding the procedure. This includes how to prepare for your arm lift to obtain the best results. Moreover, you may want to include the ideal diet and exercise routines that will help you during recovery. Dr. Wallach will advise you to be at your healthiest before surgery.

Inform your support people.

Undergoing plastic surgery will somehow change the way you look. In the case of a brachioplasty, your arms will be more toned and will look better than before. You may want to inform your family and close friends about your plans to get the procedure to give them an idea on what to expect from you after you have completed surgery. This will also give you the opportunity to get necessary help from them as you recover.
