I Am Deformed And Scarred For Life.
?I underwent my first Brachioplasty 6/2009
I underwent my first Brachioplasty 6/2009. When I came out of surgery my doctor - Dr. Scott C. Sattler, MD chose to perform an EXTENDED Brachioplasty. I was made aware of this decision while I was in recovery. This extended my scarring down each of my sides by an additional 10.5 inches - 6 inches on one side and 4.5 on the other. I was expecting elbow to pit scars, not elbow to pit to halfway down my sides. My scarring was hideous, raised, became infected , spread, and was just all around hideous! Dr. Scott C. Sattler, MD offered to perform a z-plasty a year after the original surgery so that the "wound sites" could "calm down." Not to mention the complete lack of symmetry from the inadequate liposuction on the top of each arm.
April 2010 I went in for a Z-Plasty- a surgery performed to correct extensive scarring. My incisions were closed with plastic medical dermal staples. My body rejected each and every last one - leaving me with infections, puckering of the skin and purple and red scarring. Dr. Scott C. Sattler, MD injected my scars with steroids about 3 months post op from the Z-plasty. It was in my opinion his last ditch effort to make the scars less hideous than they already were. This treatment was not only extremely painful but did the anthesis of what he intended for it to do. The scars got wider and more pronounced. My last visit to see him was in July if that year and he informed me that there was "nothing more he could do for me"
