- Extended Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
- Extended Buttock Lift
- Extended Thigh Lift
- Extended Brachioplasty (arm lift)
- Breast Lift
Upper Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Brachioplasty involves removal of excess skin from the upper arms.
You may be a candidate for this procedure if you have sagging skin in the upper arm area due to aging or weight loss. The result may also be enhanced by liposuction in the upper arm/armpit areas.
The procedure is safely performed under general anesthesia in our private, fully accredited surgical suite. Immediately after surgery, the upper arms are wrapped to reduce swelling. Initial healing usually occurs in 10-14 days.
At your consultation, Dr. Kurley will discuss the suitability of this procedure for your individual circumstance, as well as other procedures that may provide an enhanced result.
Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)
Thighplasty provides correction of loose or sagging skin in the upper thigh area by lifting and removing excess skin. The result is tighter, more attractive looking skin over the thigh and hip area. Thighplasty may be an ideal option for those clients seeking body contouring after massive weight loss. The result of this procedure will be enhanced by a buttock lift and abdominoplasty.
There are several variations for the thigh lift procedure. At your private consultation, Dr. Kurley will discuss the procedures that will best address your individual circumstance.
Thighplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia, in our private, fully accredited surgical suite. After surgery, the patient is placed in a compression garment which helps to reduce swelling and assists the natural shrinkage and tightening of the skin.
Recovery time varies with each person and will be discussed at your consultation.
