I had an arm lift done at the same time as my extended tummy tuck. I would recommend against doing more than one procedure at a time. It was just too much for my body. I needed my arms in order to compensate for my tummy, but couldn't use them. I didn't get a vertical scar in my armpit--which is typical. The result is that I have a cave for an armpit, which makes is very difficult to shave. I'm still healing though, so I'm hoping that this gets less annoying. But I did have over an inch of skin removed, so the bat wings are gone. I'm only 3 weeks in, so I'm really hoping that my view of what I had done improves.

Since starting back on weight training, the right arm pit that used to look like a belly button has smoothed out, so it looks like I'll be able to avoid the revision there. Thank god for that.
But I just wish that the scars would fade faster. I swear, people just stare at me, thinking- "Did this woman try to commit suicide by cutting her upper arms in case she failed"? I swear-- that is the face they make when they notice them. So frustrating.

For those who are wanting to give scar treatment advice, I've tried everything. They are lighter than they were when I first had the procedure done, but they are still very pink. Not happy at all.
