Before I chose Dr. Luis A. Picard-Ami, Jr. in Panama City, Panama, I researched multiple aesthetic surgeons and simply could not find a surgeon as accomplished. My husband and I have had an outstanding experience and we highly recommend him; his skillfulness and expertise are irrefutable. For months, I communicated with him by email and he used his valuable time to thoroughly, thoughtfully and punctually answer every question. We followed up with simple pictures taken on our phones and he offered his recommendations, our options, detailed cost estimates, basic procedural guidance and aftercare information. He never sold us on additional procedures or products. Additionally, what endeared me to Dr. Picard-Ami was that he helped me to focus on how important realistic result expectations are. He has incredible attention to detail. My husband and I are now in our fifth week of healing and the results so far are completely natural and genuine even though our procedures were quite different. I am thrilled! Also, please know that the costs ended up exactly as quoted and were 30% lower than our U. S. quotes. Dr. Picard-Ami’s manner is warm, compassionate and gentle. His nurse and administrative assistant are also competent, caring and welcoming; they coordinate everything concerning surgical care and follow-up. I want to also share that he is the only surgeon we spoke with who recommended physical therapy following the surgery and we believe the ultrasound sessions facilitated our healing. His office is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital as is the aftercare. Next week, we are to follow up with him by email with photos of our progress, and we are seeing steady improvement each day. We’ve had no complications to speak of and no regrets to date. I know we chose the best surgeon with the most caring staff and we simply loved visiting Panama. Please know that you can trust Dr. Picard-Ami; he exceeded our expectations and I know he will surpass yours too. RDS

"As a couple, my husband and I decided to have facial enhancement surgery. Several years ago, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Picard-Ami, trusting him with this made sense. Our challenges leaving the USA for this major event made us anxious because we speak limited Spanish and have hearing impairment issues. Dr. Picard-Ami and his associates clearly understood these issues and took great care to walk us through each part of the process. We followed all recommended after care treatments and instructions and are currently moving though the healing process nicely and are thrilled with the results. Dr. Picard-Ami is truly an accomplished surgeon and outstanding man. We, absolutely, selected the right surgeon for this life chaining event"

What is Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?

The objective of the arm lift (also known as Brachioplasty) procedure is to improve the contour in the upper arm by lifting and removing excess fat and skin that has lost its elasticity due to age or fluctuation in weight.

 

A Good Candidate for Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Good Candidates for arm lift surgery are healthy non-smoking individuals that are over the age of 18.

 

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon who will discourse with you the best method(s) to achieve your desired end results. Incisions are made on the inner part of each arm. The lengths of the incisions depend on the amount of skin that needs to be removed. Occasionally, incisions are made from the inside of the upper arm, all the way down to the inner elbow.

 

Excess skin is either cut out surgically, or if stubborn fat deposits are present, the surgeon may choose to remove them via liposuction. Incisions are closed with dissolvable or removable stitches, in which case the patient may or may not be required to return to the hospital for a follow-up visit to have the stitches removed.

 

This procedure is outpatient, which means that the patient can return home the same day of the surgery, unless advised otherwise by the doctor.

 

Average Duration of Arm lift Surgery: 2 hours
