The Most Amazing Thing I Have Done to my Body! - Saint Louis, MO

would like to thank Dr Cristian Prada for giving my self esteem back. For about 17 years I have been self conscious of my upper arms, never wearing short sleeves because of the hanging skin and cellulite that formed on my upper arms from about age 35. Which I believe was mostly heredity, non the less I finally decided to take action this year at age 52. Believe me I did my research on line about Brachioplasty (upper arm lift). Also went to 3 other cosmetic surgeon consultations (and paid the $100.00 - $150.00 consultation fees). The thing about Dr Prada that got my attention was how he explained in the consultation the way he does Brachioplasty in stages: doing Liposuction first, then coming back in 4 to 6 months for the Brachioplasty Surgery. The way he explained and made me feel good about doing it, that day on the consultation, I said sign me up. So on April 4th 2012 I had the Liposuction done to my upper arms. Then waited till September to do the surgery. On one of the visits to his office in between the 6 months he looked at my stomach and said and I quote: "You have nice elasticity skin on your belly" ( flab I called it). " I can do a tummy tuck and make your stomach look like a 25 year old" unquote. I thought about it, the expense and decided to go for it. On the next visit that I would go ahead and do both (Brachiopasty and Abdominoplasty). I have to mention his office staff are nice and very knowledgeable. I am on my second week after surgery and feeling great. My arms look amazing. I gave Dr. Prada the permission to post my (before and after) pictures everywhere. I am so glad I picked him to do my surgery. Which I think the stages made the difference on the upper arm lift. Not to mention my tummy after 3 kids looks like a 22 year old again. I love to dance and always wanted to teach Zumba. Well because of Dr. Prada's wonderful skills in January, I will be going for my Zumba Instructor classes. I can not thank Dr. Prada enough for giving me back my confidence and figure.
