Body Lift in Stages - Rochester, NY

I am currently 6 days out from having the first part of my body lift. In January, I had an arm lift, in April, I had a long Thigh Lift. The background: I'm in my mid 50's, currently weigh 138 pounds (5'6"). My high weight was about 325. I lost the weight thru diet and exercise and have maintained this weight for a while. About 8 years ago, I had a standard Tummy Tuck with muscle repair.... READ MORE

Thigh Lift Next - Rochester, NY

I'm currently recovering from an extended Arm Lift (1/17/14) and thought that I would plan a breast lift next. However, the skin tightening under the arms has pulled my chest up a little and I think I would prefer to wait on the lift until my upper body is fully healed. My PS will not combine procedures and I doubt that I can handle too much pain/risk of complications since I'm in my mid... READ MORE

Breast Lift in my Future - Rochester, NY

I'm scheduled for 1/17/2014. Adding photos of my... READ MORE

That's an Insorb staple - they slowly dissolve over time but parts of them will come out or in your case all of one. I've learned how to pick the ends of them out as they seem to work their way to the surface. READ COMMENT

I've just updated. My PS said that lipo would not help me at all since my problem was the pooling skin. It's hard to get thighs super tight and smooth, but I'm pleased with mine no longer flapping about. READ COMMENT

Thank you, seeing your after photos helped me decide to go for the vertical incision. I'm took a photo earlier, even though I'm very swollen, I can see the future results and I'm thrilled with how smooth things look already. READ COMMENT

Yes I am wearing a marena garment with zippers during the day but at night I'm just wearing thigh length compression hose because the garment is too warm at night. I've gone without a few times and not had too much swelling as a result. READ COMMENT
