We will start by discussing your surgical goals to determine if an arm lift is a right procedure for you. We will review your medical history, surgical history, drug allergies, current medications, including vitamins and herbal supplements, nutrition, alcohol, tobacco, and drug use, and family history. It is very important that we obtain accurate information in all areas, as it may impact the outcome of your surgery.
We will need to know your current weight loss program if any, and how long your weight has been stable. Suppose you had prior weight loss surgery; our bariatric surgeon would review this information. We will examine and measure your body to help develop a personalized plan for your arm lift in San Antonio. If you have medical conditions, you may need to get your doctor's clearance before surgery.
Once we identify your concerns and surgical goals, we will discuss all treatment options available to you. Every patient is unique, and we will develop a tailored surgical plan that addresses your specific goals. While discussing different treatment options, we will perform a physical exam and take measurements necessary for planning for your surgery. Pre-operative (before surgery) photos will be taken either at your initial consultation, or during your pre-operative visit.
