South Florida PS???-Short arm lift

South Florida PS???-Short arm lift

Postby azteca954 » Fri Aug 30, 2013 9:03 pm

Hi,

In search of a Plastic Surgeon in the South Florida area who has experienced/performed short arm lifts. Shocked that I have not been able to locate one in Dade, Broward or Palm Beach county.

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated

Thanks :)

Did you try emailing me? When I replied back it came back undelivered. Anyways...my pw is newstart.

The experience was very good. You have to be mindful of your scar and limit your movement. No stretching of any kind for at least a week or two. Keep the area dry with gauze to prevent the scar from spreading. The only regret is my scar goes to the back of my arm. Even though its in a fold, it still shows. I still wear sleeveless anyways. Whatever! I like having under arm because I would not want to have a scar don't my arm. If you are trying to achieve a very thin arm then a long scar is your thing.

Hi Azteca,

If you're still looking, we have a list of Miami surgeons who perform Arm procedures that you may be interested in.
Dr. Michael Salzhauer has many good reviews, as does Dr. Leonard Hochstein.

We also have compression garments and scar sheets specifically for arm procedures:

ImageArmSurgeryCompressionSleeves-ForearmLength-Marena
Made of a breathable and lightweight compression fabric that feels good next to the skin, the Arm Cosmetic Surgery Compression Sleeves features two sleeves (Forearm length) connected by a hook and eye closure in the back. This compression garment is appropriate for liposuction and arm procedures (lift, reduction, brachioplasty), as well as for arm procedures following gastric bypass or bariatric surgery. The Arm Compression Sleeves improves blood circulation, compresses the bleeding vessels, minimizes swelling after the procedure, flushes the body out of potentially harmful fluids, accelerates the healing process, and allows the patient to return to daily routines sooner. This compression garment also provides support to surgical areas for more comfort and helps the skin fit better to it new contours

ImageArmSurgeryCompressionSleeves-Rainey
Made with adjustable Velcro closures for ease and strong, breathable and lightweight compression fabric that feels good next to the skin, this arm compression sleeves garment improves blood circulation, compresses the bleeding vessels, minimizes swelling after the procedure, flushes the body out of potentially harmful fluids, accelerates the healing process, and allows the patient to return to daily routines sooner. This compression garment also provides support to surgical areas for more comfort and helps the skin fit better to it new contours. The garment can be worn with a full body garment for added upper body compression and has adjustable Velcro closures for more comfort and ease of application. Appropriate for liposuction and arm procedures (lift, reduction, brachioplasty), as well as for arm procedures following gastric bypass or bariatric surgery.
This 100% latex-free garment is made of a strong, breathable and lightweight compression fabric that feels good next to the skin. Moreover, the garment is made of pattern designs that target maximum support and compression.


ImageOleevaArmScarReductionSiliconeSheet-PAIR
Oleeva works well on both new and old scars regardless of the age of the scar, and can be used on all types of post-surgery scars, hypertrophic and keloid scars, and other scar types caused by injury, trauma, and burns. Recommended by plastic surgeons and dermatologists, Oleeva Scar Reduction Sheets are so thin, soft, and flexible, that you will forget that you're wearing the latest technology for scar management. The outer surface of the sheet is covered with a silky fabric for a touch of elegance and optimal comfort. Most importantly, the inner surface is made of a patented material called Silon, which is formed from a unique blend of silicone and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). The PTFE provides an internal reinforcing mechanism, thereby creating very thin sheets of soft silicone with significantly enhanced physical strength.

Thanks SarahJ,

Do you have another list of other surgeons specialized in short arm lifts? Because the ones mentioned do not specialize in the above (SAL) Not sure if you are just promoting the post surgical garments or genuinely knowledge local surgeons expertise?

I'm not sure what you mean by a short arm lift...but I had a brachioplasty on Nov 25 with Dr Daniel Man in Boca Raton and have been extremely happy with the results thus far.

I had mine done in Thailand, so I can't be of much help. This has been one of my favorite procedures I have had done.
