Arm Lift in Las Vegas
Everyone wants sculpted, toned arms that complement our body’s shape. Unfortunately, various factors can make our arms look flabby. The natural aging process, as well as weight gain, can cause enlarged arms with loose skin. This can result in self-esteem issues in an individual. Luckily, arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) is a great surgical option for those who have experienced significant weight loss.
“I heavily researched 2 surgeons and am so glad I went with Dr. Alexander. His bedside manner is the best I have ever seen and I deal with physicians on a regular basis for work. He addressed my concerns and anxiety I had about the actual surgery. I appreciated how accessible the office was after the surgery when I had questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Alexander to anyone looking for a very personal and professional experience.”
“Dr. Alexander and his staff are incredible. He is one of the most caring and professional surgeons I have ever met - and that is saying something because I work in a hospital. The staff are equally incredible and kind. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. 5 months ago Dr. Alexander performed a breast augmentation surgery and the results are so natural my friends did not even notice I am 3 cups bigger! I have already referred Dr. Alexander to close friends. He is the best in the Valley.”
“Doctor Alexander is a miracle and made my experience exceptional, he really listened to my concerns and answered all my questions regarding the whole procedure. He made my breasts look like sisters again, I would even recommend him to my daughter and anyone looking for a breast augmentation or exchange. He is not your typical plastic surgeon and he really cares about your outcome. He is the best!!”
