The upper arm plastic surgery patient admits: I was ashamed to raise my arms
Siiri, a patient of Christinas Clinic, shares her experience with upper arm plastic surgery.
“I always wore long-sleeved clothes, even in summer, when it was warm, and the sun was shining.”
I lost over 90 kg due to a gastric surgery, but I was still not happy with how I looked. Although I was much lighter and the fat was gone, there was a huge amount of excess skin left on my body. For example, a big problem was the arms as the skin does not pull back much from the arms and is easily bagging, which makes it very ugly. I was really unhappy. The excess skin caused skin irritation and hygiene problems. I was ashamed to raise my arms and I always wore long sleeves, even in summer when it was warm, and the sun was shining.
In addition, it was very difficult for me to find the right clothes, because everything that sat nicely on my body was tight on my arms. I had to choose clothes that would stretch or have a wide cut at the shoulders and arms. So, I didn’t really enjoy my weight loss and I still wore wider clothes than I would have liked.
“No pain – I even forgot that I had just come from the surgery”
I decided to turn to Christinas Clinic with my concern. The operation and recovery went very quickly – I did not feel any pain or discomfort and I was allowed to go home the very next day. I was able to do everything, sometimes I even forgot that I had just come from a surgery, and I had to remind myself not to raise my arms very high. Today, almost a year after my surgery, I no longer even see any scars.
“Nicely toned arms”
I am very pleased with the outcome of the surgery. I don’t have to be ashamed of my flabby skin anymore, I have beautiful slim arms and I like to wear short-sleeved clothes. With the surgery, in addition to removing excess skin, my arms got nicely toned.
