I am scheduled for arm reduction surgery tomorrow. I had it 3 months ago, but the doctor did not remove enough skin.

Oral pills for sedation with brachioplasty revision
It is imperative that you seek the advice of a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has extensive experience in brachioplasty / arm lift.
I wish you the best.
Anesthesia during touch up
It depends what the medication was that you were given and if local anesthesia will also be used. You want to feel comfortable and confident during any medical procedure so I encourage you to notify your surgeon of your concerns so that that they can be addressed prior to your procedure.
Good luck to you!

Arm Reduction Anesthesia
You should discuss options with your plastic surgeon.
If you are having just a small procedure done, this is no need to be put to sleep. This decision is made by your surgeon based on what they feel you can handle and how much work needs to be done. I do this rountinely in my practice when I am doing a small procedure, it helps speed up recovery and is easy in some cases for the patient. It does depend on your tolerance for pain as well. Good luck.
- Hello, and thank you for your question. If you are having a smaller revisional procedure I think this is quite appropriate. In many instances the surgery can be performed after local anesthesia had been administered with minimal sedation. Best of luck with your revision.
