  • Janice P.

    I am interested in having a brachioplasty and facelift (mostly the neck area). [Content removed for patient confidentiality purposes.] My question is…will my medical history keep me from having a brachioplasty?

    • This is an excellent question, Janice! As with some types of surgery, later surgery of the arms is avoided unless absolutely necessary. However it also depends on what may (or may not) have been done to the lymph nodes, whether there was adjuvant treatment like radiation to the underarm, and other factors. Working with Dr.Carlson to get his input about the risks of arm surgery, together we can decide if this is a good option or not. Feel free to call 404-778-6880 for a personal consultation.

    What is a reasonable goal or time frame for weight loss? I’m trying to loss weight, but keep on failing.

    • Debra: Unfortunately, the media skews what is appropriate, healthy weight loss. Healthy weight loss is about one to two pounds per week. This can be achieved by decreasing caloric intake by 500-1000 calories per day. Aim to choose nutrient dense whole foods more frequently to help you decrease calorie intake, but feel full and satisfied instead of deprived. Often, rapid weight loss from very low calorie diets or restrictive eating plans leads to quick weight regain. This is because healthy choices were not incorporated into an overall lifestyle. Weight loss and weight management take commitment to better, healthier foods and exercise for life.
