Scar from bandage
A little liposuction will reduce the contrast between the rest of your arm and the indented scar.
But ideally, the scar should be surgically released and fat transplants done beneath it, to prevent the
scar from re-forming.
The scar can reform - which is disappointing but even if so, is usually significantly better. Best wishes.

When I consult with massive weight loss patients for an arm lift or arm reduction, I look for these arm bands. During arm lift surgery, I spent a significant amount of time disrupting this arm band with the liposuction cannula. In addition, I spend a significant amount of time removing the fat on both sides of the arm scar band. Arm liposuction and the removal of excess arm skin and fat usually solves the arm band problem.
I would advise you have aggressive arm liposuction around the arm scar band. I doubt you will need a repeat arm lift after this aggressive arm liposuction.
