In the initial consultation, Dr. Crabtree will use the time to get to know you, learn about your expectations and discuss a plan to achieve your goals. This may be a part of a post-bariatric weight loss body-contouring plan. For these patients, an arm lift can be an integral part of completing their body transformation. He will discuss the different variables of surgery and risks. Prior to surgery you will have a good understanding of the procedure, plan and recovery. In some cases, Dr. Crabtree can perform Vaser® Liposuction in conjunction with Renuvion by J Plasma to tighten and reduce the sagging skin.
This type of surgery can be done in the clinic under local anesthesia. In the consultation, Dr. Crabtree will guide you in deciding which surgery is more suitable for your goals. If you decide you are ready to proceed you will set a date for surgery and be given instructions on how to prepare. You will also schedule a pre-operative appointment to review your medical history, take pre-operative photographs, and confirm the details of your surgery.
