WHAT it is:
A Trifecta Lift, or Upper Body Lift consists of one or more surgical procedures that tighten unwanted, loose, sagging skin on the arms, back and breasts to give a smoother contour. Your look will be improved from every angle!
HOW it’s done:
A Trifecta Lift typically includes an upper arm lift, breast lift, and back lift.
WHAT to expect:
You may experience temporary pain, soreness and numbness of the skin around your incision.
Maximum discomfort will occur the first few days.
You will have bruising and swelling of the abdomen and back. The majority of bruising and swelling will subside in 6-8 weeks.
You will leave the operation with drainage tubes. Expect soreness, numbness/tingling and swelling in areas of liposuction. This may last for 6-9 months.
You may feel tired for several weeks or months.
AWAKE or ASLEEP
Take a nap with general anesthesia
RECOVER, RESULTS & FREQUENCY:
Long- term fix! Results can last 10 years or more.
Have all prescriptions filled prior to your surgery. Do not take any Aspirin, Plavix, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Coenzyme Q10 or medications containing these compounds for 14 days before your procedure.
Begin your stool softener on the day prior to surgery to avoid constipation.
Wash with Hibiclens or antibacterial soap the night before surgery, as directed. Cleanse your belly button area with a Qtip and the antibacterial soap while showering.
Do not shave the surgical site within 2 days of surgery. This includes under arms for breast procedures and the pubic area for abdominal procedures. Hair may be trimmed with an electric clipper.
Avoid using body lotions, deodorants or perfumes on the day of surgery.
Do not wear any jewelry, piercings or contact lenses.
Refrain from vigorous exercise on the day before your surgery.
Have a regular meal on the evening before surgery, and drink plenty of water. Avoid alcoholic beverages on the evening before surgery. Do no eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your surgery.
You may shower 48 hours after your operation, but no soaking in a bathtub.
Do not remove steri-strips. They may come off naturally at 2 weeks. When they start to peel off, they are easier to remove in the shower.
Record drain output (milliliters) every 12 hours
Keep incisions clean and inspect daily for signs of infection.
Wear abdominal binder at all times.
Compression garments are helpful to reduce swelling from liposuction
May pad incision with dressings for comfort.
Avoid exposing scars to sun for at least 12 months.
Always use a strong sunblock, if sun exposure is unavoidable (SPF 30 or greater).
Begin scar therapy approximately 2 weeks after your operation
Start walking as soon as possible, as this helps to reduce swelling and lowers the chance of blood clots.
Do not drive until you are no longer taking any pain medications (narcotics).
No lifting greater than 8 lbs. for 4-6 weeks.
Sleep in a recliner or with multiple pillows
Avoid strenuous exercise and activities for approximately 6 weeks.
