Ellen’s Experience Undergoing Upper Arm and Thigh Lift Procedures
An upper arm lift also known as a brachioplasty, reshapes the upper arm to tighten loose skin and remove fat that often creates a “bat wing” appearance under the arm. A thigh lift also known as thighplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from either the inner or outer thighs.
“As I aged and gained weight, I became concerned about my arms and my thighs. I looked Dr. Kenneth Francis up on the internet and spoke to people who knew him and found out he was affiliated with hospitals in my community,” explains Ellen.
Ellen then consulted with Dr. Francis sharing her body contouring concerns that were a result of the aging process and loosening of the skin over time. During consultation, she shared her other concerns following the procedure such as the healing process, time off from work, scarring and financing.
“It is an interesting dynamic that occurs between a patient and physician to try and hash out realistic expectations of their procedural results,” noted Dr. Francis.
“My recovery took about a week and I was able to go back to work. Even though my surgery has gone unnoticed, I notice it and feel better about it. I did it for myself and I’m very happy with the outcome!” exclaims Ellen.
