Many people who consider cosmetic surgery are looking to enhance their appearance. In many cases, such patients already have an active lifestyle, including regular workout regimens and a sensible diet, but just need a bit of help correcting some trouble areas on their body. An arm lift is a great example of the type of surgical procedure that meets the needs of patients who are otherwise leading a very healthy lifestyle, but have stubborn, flabby skin on the arms. Dr. Paul Pin has seen countless numbers of these patients and helped them have the body that best shows off all their hard work and achievement.
Arm Lift Procedure Technique
An arm lift procedure is designed to remove excess skin on the arms. An incision is made in the armpit, and down the length of the upper arm. The skin and underlying tissue are then lifted away, tightened, and then sutured back into place, after which the excess skin and tissue are removed. The procedure does not remove excess fat from the arms, but can be combined with a liposuction procedure to do so. Initial healing generally takes two to three weeks, after which patients can resume normal activities and light exercise. After about six weeks, patients can resume their normal exercise routine.
Cost for an Arm Lift Procedure
Dr. Pin charges $8,400 to $9,400 for an arm lift procedure. The actual cost may depend on the length of the procedure and whether or not it is combined with another procedure, such as liposuction. The cost is all inclusive, and covers not only Dr. Pin's fee, but also that of the anesthesiologist, the surgery center, and any overnight hospital stay that may be needed.
Financing an Arm Lift Procedure
Dr. Pin accepts cash, check, and all major credit cards. In most cases, an arm lift procedure will not be covered by insurance. If a patient wishes to submit a claim to their insurance company, Dr. Pin's office staff will be more than happy to help with gathering the necessary paperwork and filling out the forms required in order to file a claim.
Many of Dr. Pin's patients will opt to use a CareCredit account to finance their cosmetic surgical procedures. CareCredit has a long history of helping patients finance medical procedures. The company can offer financing with terms ranging from six to 24 months. It works similarly to a credit card. In some cases, no interest is accrued, provided monthly payments are made on time. Applying is fast and easy, and patients can often be approved at their initial consultation visit with Dr. Pin.
Patients who have worked hard to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle should be able to proudly show off the results of their hard work. Dr. Pin offers a variety of easy ways to finance the cosmetic procedure that will help patients get the final touch to those results.
