Once a person has chosen a surgeon for arm lift, the next step will be to schedule a consultation with the surgeon. Consultation will form a vital component of the entire process and lay the foundation for a successful plastic surgery. The patient should actively engage with the surgeon during the consultation, and freely ask questions to address their doubts and concerns.
The surgeon will make use of the consultation opportunity to determine whether an arm lift is an appropriate procedure for the patient or it may have to be combined or replaced with another surgery. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive arm lift surgery with dedicated cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie.
At the time of initial consultation, the surgeon will determine whether the patient is suitable candidate for arm lift. They will review the past medical records of the patient, and examine their current health condition. To save time, the patient should ideally bring a complete list of current medications and supplements that they may be using.
The patient should be forthcoming about any existing health concerns or specific lifestyle issues such as smoking or drug use. Certain types of medications and tobacco smoke and increase the risk of complications and inhibit healing. The surgeon will be in a position to anticipate the risks and make appropriate recommendations to the patient for preparation and recovery once they have clear information in all relevant areas.
During the first appointment, the unique plastic surgery plan for the patient will be developed, which will be tailored to meet their specific needs. The surgeon will examine the patient’s natural shape of the arms, overall body type, skin quality and the degree of skin laxity in the arms. The surgeon may also take photographs and observe the arm as the patient moves it.
These steps will enable the surgeon to create a customized arm lift procedure. The patient will be encouraged to fully participate in the planning process and provide their inputs on every aspect. The surgeon will ask them to discuss their cosmetic goals and aspirations, and try to incorporate in the surgical plan.
The patient will learn about the type of arm lift they will receive, the type of anesthesia that will be used, the estimated recovery process and the expected results of the procedure. The surgeon may present arm lift before and after photos to help the patient develop reasonable expectations.
Testimonials and reviews of the patients who have received arm lift may also be shown to let the patient learn about the procedure from the perspective of another patient. Accomplished cosmetic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities across the horizon for arm lift surgery.
