i have lost 6 stone and would like a brachioplasty. It looks awful but feels comfortable. My biggest fear is that it will be tight after the initial swelling has gone down and won't feel natural like it does now?

Congratulations on your weight loss! I understand your concerns about how you will feel after a brachioplasty (arm lift). Though the results do look quite firm, your arms will not feel tight once you have fully recovered. In fact, they won’t feel different from how they feel right now, except that you won’t have any hanging skin. Brachioplasty is one of my favorite procedures because of the great results and immediate benefit of the procedure. I wish you the best of luck in your continued weight loss and body contouring journey!

At what point do you take legal action after the surgery goes bad? The male brow lift did nothing, facelift pulled up to make you look like a chipmunk, and earlobes stuck out 90 degrees after surgery. Then your surgeon leaves practice, ASAPS members, and other surgeons want to charge more than…

I can't advise you about taking legal action, but it certainly sounds like you didn't get results that you're happy with. Unfortunately, in your case the horse is out of the barn already. The best chance for a great result is during the first operation. Of course, you can't go back in time and start with an ASAPS member surgeon. Revisions have limitations due to the existing scarring and the choices of technique made during the first operation. I would recommend you find a surgeon with whom you have confidence and feel comfortable with to have a revision procedure done at the right time. In my practice I have unfortunately seen a good number of patients for revision surgery after having been to less qualified and/or experienced surgeons. Though challenging its usually possible to improve things significantly. I hope you are able to reach your goals soon.

Hello! I am having five procedures done. Tummy tuck, BBL, Breast lift w/ implants, BodyTite & lipo inner thighs, and Labiaplasty. My surgeon wants to do the TT, BBL & labiaplasty first. Then 6 weeks later come back and do the breasts & inner thighs. The more I research the more I really don’t want…

When planning a lot of procedures to be done at the same time there is a lot of things to consider. The order your surgeon is suggesting makes sense for two reasons. It works in terms of the areas of the body having procedures, and it keeps the time for surgery at a reasonable amount for each procedure. The order you're asking for makes the time needed to do the second operation a lot longer than the first. Of course, that all depends upon the amount of work involved with your tummy and breasts. You should have a talk with your surgeon and make a plan together that you're comfortable with. Remember that you can also break things up further and have three procedures instead of two if you're more comfortable taking things in a different order. I hope this helps!

I went to a highly recommended plastic surgeon for a breast augmentation consult. Right now I'm a 36F/36G. The doctor told me that I'd have to have a breast lift first & then wait a year to have implants put in. I left in tears. I've waited 15 years and to be told that I have to have a lift and then…

Thanks for your question. I know it must have been disappointing to receive a recommendation that you wait a year in between procedures. In my practice I routinely perform breast lifts and augmentation at the same time. I have found it to be the best way to balance the shape and volume of the breasts and achieve the best results. Having said that there are rare cases where the breasts are so large that a two stage approach may be safer. If you're wearing 36F-G I would expect that you could choose to do a one stage procedure and have it done safely. If you see three surgeons you'll get three opinions. The surgeon you saw for your consultation is giving that advice with your safety in mind. He/she may not be comfortable with a one stage procedure (lift and augmentation at the same time) . If you visit with other reputable and experienced surgeons you may find another doctor who is comfortable with doing both together. Of course, your health and habits also contribute to the best choices for your procedure. Don't be discouraged! I would encourage you to have a couple more consultations with board certified plastic surgeons (there are many choices right here on this site). You may find one with the confidence and ability to help you achieve your goal in one procedure. I hope this helps!
