Skarms No More!! - Carmel, IN

These huge arms run in my family. My grandma has them, my mom has had them removed, and now it is my turn to have them cut off. I had gastric bypass in 2004 with a starting weight of 260, a lowest weight of 140, and a maintaining weight of 175. I really want to be able to buy a shirt that fits me, not my skarms!

(I am also having a breast lift without implants at the same time.)

Money is paid!

Had my pre op yesterday. Took about 20 pictures. Paid the fees. I am pretty nervous! I was a little shocked that they don't use the compression sleeves after surgery, just an ace bandage. And no drains. 12 days to go!

6 days postop

First check up...

PS removed 640g from each arm. He was surprised by the amount and said that it was one of the largest amounts that he has removed. I knew I had some big arms. He is happy with the results and even confessed to redoing my left arm after the right one turned out better. I no longer need to wear the ace wraps and only have a little swelling left. I do however feel like there are huge tennis balls in my armpits due to my lymph nodes being swelled up. It's not visible from the outside but I sure can feel it. It is very uncomfortable. I go back in a month.

New pics.
