After losing 100 lbs I found that not only were my arms sagging but they were wrinkled so bad I looked 100 years old. One week after my surgery I was home watching a morning news show when they announced athat the newest craze in plastic surgery was having a arm lift and that the procedure was up 800% in the last few years...I thought to my self that is nuts, as I was in so much pain as the under part of the arm is very delicate. And there is a huge scar running down both arms. I know the scar will get lighter over time but this is one surgery that I do not recommend unless it is really necessary as it is body altering for sure. For me I am delighted with the results but it was really needed, I wish it wasn't but it was....I am so happy with my surgeon and my outcome.

This was the right surgery for me as it was totally needed and I had a very good surgeon. I know everyone says that, but I have looked at the pictures and some of the scaring is horrible. I have a very thin pencil line scar. After 5 months it still is red but it's getting better daily. The photos above are 2 months before surgery and 2 weeks after surgery. I would suggest losing all your needed weight first and then see if you really need skin removal. Many times lipo is also done when the skin is removed, but for me it was not needed. This is a great life changing surgery when it is truly needed...And I do love my new skinny girl arms...

this picture is a little hard to see the arm since I took it in the mirror but it shows the arm with the bunching at the bottom. Looks like a little fix will be needed there. The rest of the arm is healing nicely and the scar is nice and thin.
I will be having some sort of revision

Not sure how much I am going to have done just yet. I will need to have the "pulled area" at the bottom of each arm fixed. Second PS said the cut should have come all the way to the elbow since there is still extra skin and I should have had a little lipo and then they could have been pulled tighter. But when showing me just how tight they could be, the upper arms becomes smaller than the lower arm (below the elbow) and that just might look alittle weird...I most likely will just have the bottom area recut and fixed as I have a really nice scar on the rest of the arms and would hate to mess that up and also the thought of all that pain and recovery is not a option....I am planning on using my original PS to correct this, I just thought it would be good to get a over all second opinion on just what work he would suggest I have done such as how to do the lower body lift and legs and so he also checked out my arms while I was there...He did say my face looked really good and that he would not have known I had had a face lift. So I thought that was really cool that a PS could not tell just by looking at me...
I love my surgeon, he is very skilled in bariatric plastic surgery.
