I had never even heard of an arm lift before but saw a promo for Embarrassing Bodies where a woman had hers done, I had to know more...
After finding arm lift procedure uncommon in NZ, I wanted someone who had extensive experience with weight loss surgery. I found Mr. Richard Bloom on this website and chose him almost solely on the review of one patient (please read appleskinny1 if you need more convincing). My consultation was for an arm lift but while I was there wanted to know how much more weight I would have to lose to have a tummy tuck. To my astonishment he told me not to lose any more weight and that what was encasing my body was not fat but in fact skin that could be removed with a lower body lift. I was shocked! I have only lost 35kg but Mr. Bloom told me I have the skin that would suggest a 70-90kg weight loss... you could say I was a human shar-pei!
I appreciated Mr. Bloom's straight forward honest approach. His skill as a surgeon is pure artistry and the results nothing short of amazing. I still have some healing to do and am considering a second procedure to address my upper body issues but already the result has exceeded all my expectations. My stomach is flat, my butt taut and my arms a work of art. Even my lady bits have been lifted and changed for the better. My thighs look smoother and I don't know how he's done it but my legs even look longer! I was hoping to keep my surgery a secret but with such sudden and dramatic results, I doubt that will be possible.
I was even able to go on an exotic 3 week holiday just 26 days after my op and wore a swimsuit without a coverup for the first time ever and I felt great! In the near future I hope to switch to a bikini, something I would never ever have dreamed possible!
I do believe that if I hadn't met Mr Bloom, my despair and anger would've gotten the best of me. I would've slipped back into my old ways, gained all of my weight back and then some. It is for this reason I think he has saved my life, this may sound overly dramatic but it's true... I can now look forward to a future where I feel inspired to be healthy, and live a longer, happier and more fulfilling life and for that I will be eternally grateful.
If you are considering an arm lift, body lift or any surgery, don't hesitate any longer. Put your trust in Richard and his team. My only regret is I didn't do it sooner.
My sincerest and most heartfelt gratitude goes out to Mr. Richard Bloom and also to Vikki (who humored my unrelenting silly questions), and to Charlotte, Ben and the lovely caring sweethearts at Linley Clinic (special shoutout to Trish and Tonya). You really are all miracle workers!
