Unhappy Arm Lift Doctor Complaints/Issues

I went to a few doctors to decide who would be my best choice for surgery. I ended up going to the same doctor that did my tummy tuck.

I originally went in to inquire aboyt getting a brachioplasty. The doctor said that I did not have quite enough loose skin for that procedure, so we settled on lipo with the high possibility of a revision due to most of my loose skin being closer to my armpits.

I was told by both doctors in the office and a couple of nurses (at various times during recovery) that I would need to get a revision on that particular spot on both arms.

The revision - which I was told by these doctors and nurses - would just be to remove that excess skin. I was also told that they would probably be able to schedule it about 2 months after my lipo.

I went to the doctor today and now all of the sudden their story has changed. Supposedly, now the revision would only be to do more lipo NOT just to remove the excess skin. AND that would require doing a full brachioplasty!!!*

I originally went in there for a brachioplasty! Now I am very upset and in tears because I spent all this money for nothing, because now they say I need a full brachioplasty & it's too soon to dot it & they will be charging me the full amount for it!
They told me that they would have me ready by September (because I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding & it's a strapless dress) and even though that's not the only reason I wanted the surgery it's very upsetting.

Is there something I should do? Should I talk to someone about this? Is there ANYTHING I can do about it?

Hi. Although it may be too late for you, I'm sure that others may be reading this as well. This all sounds very fishy - it appears that either they did not know how to accurately assess things at the beginning, which would call their competence into question, or they purposely under-assess things which would call their ethics into question. Either way, this story is troublesome.

The best thing to do in this case is to get a second and third opinion. It may be that you will need to travel a bit - there may be "problems" in your region as far as finding good and honest practitioners and it may be worth expanding the circle within which you'd travel to find the very best plastic surgeon.

is there a free clinic near you so you can go see a doctor? i would try to do some relaxation techniques or yoga type stretches. Shoulder shrugs- raising your shoulders up and holding and releasing and bring them down and hold- as well as neck rolls with holds may help. if you cna go online maybe check out a yoga website for tips on helping neck pain.
