This patient’s scar is early after surgery. Notice the lack of bunching present in other results you may have seen. The scar will fade over a year’s time. Dr. Hughes has performed hundreds of armlifts and thighlifts at his surgery center in Los Angeles. The procedures involve removing excess skin and fat to help tighten and smooth out areas of skin excess in the arms and thighs. Dr. Hughes has also had great success with Bodytite of the arms and thighs in those patients who are not willing to accept the longer scars involved in these armlift and thighlift surgeries. Body contouring and other liposuction procedures can be used in combination with these procedures to produce an overall dramatic result for the whole body in many cases. Arm lift and thigh lift procedures along with any significant skin excision procedures have the potential to open in patients who do not follow postoperative instructions and who do not conform to the nutritional parameters and specifically protein consumption that Dr. Hughes recommends.
