This picture is 3 months post-op brachioplasty. Her scars are still very noticeable and pink but will improve with time. She no longer has loose skin under her bi-cep and her arm shape is much improved.
This patient had lost 125 pounds with a gastric sleeve procedure a couple of years ago. Her weight was stable now for about 6 months and now was a good time for her to consider surgery. She consulted with other plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Lapuerta as her surgeon. She did wait a few months to schedule surgery so that she could lose about 10 pounds to get to the weight she wanted to be. She is so happy with her results and is scheduled to have her body lift in 2016.
