Cosmetic Surgeon of the year finalist 2018

Arm Reduction

Age and large weight loss can unfortunately lead to sagging tissue on the upper arm which shows as a "bag" of flesh on the lower side of the upper arm when the arm is extended outward. This defect can be corrected by removing skin and subcutaneous tissue.

Arm Reduction or Brachioplasty surgery is increasingly popular and is performed under general anaesthesia. often these days following substantial weight loss either naturally through dieting or following some form of Bariatric Surgery (Bands or Bypass procedure). Arm Reduction takes between 1 to 2 hours depending on the amount of tissue to remove and recontour. I have modified my own operation for Arm reduction with consistently good results Postoperative discomfort is minimal and is usually well controlled with Paracetamol.

The stitches used are usually dissolvable and the supportive dressings are removed at one week. You can shower immediatel afterwards but dressings must be kept dry. We will show you how to do this.

I chose Mr Armstrong to carry out my facelift surgery after a lot of extensive and careful research. I was impressed with his academic credentials and his professional experience, noting that he had worked in some of the most prestigious medical institutions.

At my first consultation with Mr Armstrong I felt totally reassured that I would be in a safe pair of hands by the clarity with which he described all aspects of the facelift procedure I was requesting.  He explained everything to me in a clear and precise manner and in an unrushed and very thorough way. Together we agreed the best procedure for me, a 63 year old woman, would be a facelift plus an upper eyelid reduction and fat transfers to my cheeks, nasolabial lines and marionette lines.

I am now three weeks post-operation and the results have far exceeded my expectations.  I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I still look like me but a younger fresher version.  My droopy eyelids and hanging jowls have gone and my face and eyes look energised and revitalised.  My friends have been amazed at the transformation with one describing me as looking "sensational"!

Mr Armstrong's care before, during and after the procedure has been exemplary, and, along with his nursing staff,  I was thoroughly well looked after in a most kind, caring and professional manner.

I highly recommend Mr Armstrong to anybody considering surgery.  He is a highly skilled surgeon with a  safe and competent pair of hands.  My only regret is that I didn't do it five years earlier.
