A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty involves the removal of extra abdominal skin. Muscle tightening can be done during this procedure as well.
An arm lift, also called brachioplasty, is a procedure targeting the removal of sagging or hanging upper arm skin, referred to as “wings” or “bat wings” by many.
Dr. Scott surpassed my expectations. She is always checking her work and making sure everything is up to par for her—she makes sure the outcome is exactly as it should be. The quality of her work was frankly better than I have seen in Carmel with a very experienced surgeon. My mother and I both visited a northside surgeon and Dr. Scott was better hands down. Dr. Scott helps you put the finishing touch on all of your hard work. My only complaint was that I didn’t consult sooner. For all of the reasons you want to have plastic surgery, none of those involve waiting longer. Just do it now so that you can begin enjoying the results. There’s no reason to wait. Erin, Avon
